Got my Stern invite today!


I did as well! Congrats. Are you interviewing in December or did you get February Perspectives Day option? Does anyone have any insight about Stern Perspectives Diversity Day?

Also, haven't heard from Yale yet. Can't decide if its a lost cause or if I should still have hope given that I just heard back from Stern yesterday.

Hey All,

Maybe this is a dumb question, but wanted to get some clarity.

In the main Consortium application, there is an "Employment" tab where you have to list your employment info. Basic stuff, and you have space to list up to four employers. Here's the issue:

I have 5 previous employers. If we consider going in reverse chronological order, two of my employers sandwiched in the middle were jobs where I was underemployed, and the earliest job is actually a blue-chip employer with work experience relevant to my MBA (long story of how this fall happened). But the question is, how do I list my employers in an effective way?

A - Do I leave out one of my odd jobs? This will reflect a gap in unemployment on the application.
Or B. - Do I leave out the earliest employer, and use the space to just list out my past 4 employers? I can then hope that my attached resume will help fill in details about my first employer.

This has got me in a fix. :/ Some perspective will be appreciated. Thanks!

I would suggest that you leave out the job with the least amount of time or maybe the least important job. But ensure you include it in your resume where you have more space.

Did anyone else get the Consortium Fellowship update? Decisions about if the school offered you the fellowship will be available noon on the 15th. Best of luck to all of you brothers and sisters!

Hey guys - I'm running into a huge issue involving recommendations and wanted your thoughts.
Basically I worked at one of the big 3 media companies but had a bad boss for the 2 years that I was there.
It was my first job after graduation in 2015 and I left after two years because of the toxic environment.

The old boss has denied my request for a letter of rec.She was my direct supervisor (literally just me and her on the team) for two years, I just left that job 5 months ago yet she is telling me she wouldn't remember what to write. I provided a recommendeder resume listing all projects during my time on the team.

I am just so confused because I still talk to the people at the company and they said she still refers to some of the research that I have done. During my time there, I received outstanding end of year reviews.

Is it bad if I don't have a recommendation from the company I've been at the longest? I feel like it weakens my application

Can you try to work on her a bit more? The Consortium’s recommendation letter is very standardized.
