That is amazing. For a second there I was going to start freaking out, but then I remember I submitted mine the day before it was due so...

But I thought it was only considered "rolling" after the application deadline?

What do you mean rolling? Stern has rounds.

The "rounds" are just considered final deadlines. Stern conducts interviews and releases decisions at any time before or up to the final decision deadline for that "round".

Only seem to be times available in December though, which is going to be a struggle to get to NY from Europe for. What with work etc.

Just had my interview with a member of the admissions committee. It was about 30 minutes long and very friendly/casual. It went by really quick. They gave me a Stern t-shirt when I signed-in as well as a packet of information about Stern that is specifically tailored to my interests. The interviewer had a glass of water on her desk waiting for me when I walked into the room. She started by giving me a background about herself and then jumped into questions. Questions were as follows (not necessarily in this order but it's the best I could recall from memory):

- Walk me through your resume
- What have you learned in your current job that will help you in your future goals?
- Describe what you do at your job
- If your goals do not pan out, do you have alternative career choices?
- What do you consider to be your greatest achievement at work? Greatest failure?
- Can you reiterate your short-term goals?
- Is there anything you want to tell me that I have not already asked you?
- What do you plan on doing at Stern while you are here?
- What convinced you to apply to Stern?
- Do you have any questions for me?

As most of you probably know, the interviews are NOT blind. The interviewer has thoroughly read your application beforehand and will ask you questions about your goals and ambitions. Make sure you have a thorough knowledge of the school, its programs and culture, extracurricular activities, etc. Do your research please. Stern is huge on "fit". She told me that it sounds like I knew a lot about Stern already and "did [my] homework".

She told me to expect a decision back before the holidays - i.e. in two weeks or less. Talk about fast.


wow, that IS fast! sounds like it went well! i know that the interviews are not blind and with an adcom member so i'm kinda surprised that they asked questions that you already addressed in your essays...maybe to check that your stories are consistent?

very nice to have a custom tailored packet for you.

are interviews only on-campus? i know it's with the adcom but i thought that maybe they traveled and had hub centers like hbs.

starting to feel a little anxious since i haven't received anything yet...but if it correlates to when your app was submitted i guess i still have some time to wait.
