WL after interview. Hate it.

bhatt_devang asked me to share my stats, so here we go.

28 Y/O from Latin America, 5 YE, currently a BDM in a Tech Consulting Firm.

I left my interview with a bad feeling, as I felt I did not do well with my interviewer. Took the conversations too many times where I wanted, and she noticed.

Just focus on the questions, try to answer them accordingly as they are very simple, and probably every applicant has had similar situations at work.

Show your passion for Stern! And you'll do OK. Though it was not my first choice, I really liked the vibe when I visited, and would have liked to have it as an option, visiting the school changed my impression on the rank, possibilities, job placement, etc.

Good luck to all.

Having said this, Stern was not my first choice. But visiting campus, meeting with students, and getting the Stern Vibe made me see it different. It would have certainly made it difficult for me to choose between both. I think Stern is going up, and is nothing shy of a top Program. At least my view!

Hey guys:

I scored 700 on the GMAT (43Q/42V) and got waitlisted W/O interview 2 weeks ago (R3 applicant)

In order to show them I can handle Quant subjects on the MBA Program, 2 days ago I enrolled in an online Math course called MBA Math.
Do u guys think that I should retake the GMAT?

I'm a 30 years old Brazilian lawyer with a 7-year work experience as follows:
3 years working as a lawyer; and
4 years working both as a CEO and as a Board Member.

Any tips to help me to get off the WL???

Tks a lot!!!

Just my 2 cents, This was told to me from an ex HBS interviewer for 8 years, feel free to disagree. This is valid for Latin American applicants only, it's obvious that Indians and Chinese have other realities.

The 700 barrier means that the GMAT is not an issue. This is the same for 710, 720, 730, even 740.

Want to impress them? Go for 750. Is that risk even worth taking? I think not.

Definitely your quant score might have hurt you, but I would emphasize on strengthening other parts of your applications (professional endorsement from a heavyweight, show your passion for Stern, even compromise to extracurricular activities). Bottom line, at this point it might be better to show your commitment to Stern, and emphasize why it is so important for you to get in.

And most important of all, good luck!

I agree that once you break the 700 barrier it doesn't make that much difference. However, I also heard advice from admissions consultants that you need to get above the 80%ile in each section, so I could see them thinking the Q43, which is 56%ile, is a reason for concern. And Stern is known as such a strong finance school which requires strong quantitative skills.

Your verbal score is so great already (96%ile wow!), especially considering you are a non-native English speaker. You are already taking an MBA Math course, why not study and do a manhattan gmat online course or tutoring for quantitative. Quant is one of those things I think you can get a lot better from pretty quickly with lots of practice and good teaching/tips. (My first GMAT practice test my quant was 42 and after studying and lots of practice I got it up to 50.)

I think an improved test score is a very concrete thing to show admissions and you have very good potential to raise your score considerably. If you get up around Q48/49 (totally do-able) and keep your verbal it will be a 750.

I only had a week and a half to study, which was the same time I had to write my essays and applications, so I didn't have time to do a course. I essentially went around using all of the free resources from the different test prep companies. I found manhattan most helpful and after taking the test i thought their practice questions were the most realistic. I tried to do a couple of hours of one-on-one tutoring but there was nobody because I was studying the week between Christmas and New Year's to take it on Jan. 6
