Waitlisted without Interview today!

Excluding the GMAT, what counts as stuff that would help make your case. I haven't been promoted but I have been working on some new projects, but can only be vague about it (work in a large startup extremely private about its numbers). What else makes sense sharing with them?

Also, in the off chance that there is a change in status, are you then invited for an interview?

Hi Guys,

I got wait listed this week. I know for a fact that it's my GMAT score (630) and there is a huge scope for improvement. Unfortunately, I don't have the time to study. I will need at least a couple of months to get to the 700 mark right. Besides, I see people with the 700 score cribbing about their scores *such humility*. The start up that I'm working for is going to have it's commercial launch soon and life is just crazy at the moment. Do you think there are ways of putting this across without making it sound like an excuse?

Cheers,
Anisha



Hey,

Sorry to hear about your waitlist. However, saying that a low GMAT score was THE reason would be overstating it. There has to be something else they saw, in addition to the score. Now that you mention your score and also that you're involved with a startup, I have a very similar story. I actually took the GRE, and the equivalent of right around where you're at. I am also involved with an international FinTech startup based in India. I know a few people at Stern (current students) with GMAT's well below 650. NYU really is different from other top schools in a way that it does not use your test scores as a "screen".

Being a military veteran, I reached out to the Stern Military Veteran's Club and I'll tell you what a fellow veteran and and MBA2 (now my good friend) told me... Sure, the score may be low, but Stern really does have a holistic process. With a low score, be the person that the school would love to meet (at interview), and would love to take a risk on. Coincidentally, I know an individual who was waitlisted for three months with a GMAT score of 780 before being invited to interview. Hope this helps, and wish you the very best. There is still a LOT you can do to get in.


Thanks for the words, it's very encouraging. I'm still hoping

Hey Oorah1989,

Thank you so much for those motivating words. Yes, I do know that there are other things I can do as well to push them towards at least giving me a shot at an interview. I plan on writing an essay speaking about my diverse background and how I believe I will be able to contribute back to the class. Wish me luck!

Cheers,
Anisha

Guys,

How do we go about sending recommendations? Does it have to be in the same format as the earlier recommendations, does the recommender have to send it directly and if so to which email ID?
Any clue?

Cheers,
Anisha

Good luck everyone, hope we get out of this purgatory together!

Why New York University Fell in the Best Business Schools Rankings - (I am a current student) - Message from our Dean -

Why Stern’s Ranking Fell to 20, and Why You Shouldn’t Take it at Face Value
— March 16, 2016
US News and World Report published its rankings of full-time MBA programs today, and Stern dropped from 11 last year to 20 this year, we know why, and here’s why you shouldn’t accept it at face value.

US News shared the rankings with us last week. We were surprised, looked at the data, and found that Stern’s scores were higher than a number of other schools with higher ranks (see here for example.) So we challenged their ranking of Stern.

US News told us that Stern's drop was largely attributable to a single missing data point – one missing answer (concerning how many students submitted GMAT scores) out of over 300 questions. In its absence, US News had substituted an “estimated” number (we do not know how this estimate was derived.)

We promptly provided the correct information, but US News declined to adjust the rankings.

The failure to submit the data is ours; that said, it was wholly unintentional, it’s a question we’ve always answered in the past, US News never flagged the missing information, and the missing data was virtually identical to last year’s. Going forward, we will further tighten the procedures for data submissions so such lapses do not recur.

I thought it important to write you because it is not right to let this ranking stand without comment given that we know it is based on faulty information that we sought to correct before US News released its rankings publicly.

In addition, for both prospective students and current members of our community, I would ask you to bear in mind: in the real world Stern’s outstanding quality is no different this week than it was last week.

Sincerely,
Peter Henry
Dean, NYU Leonard N. Stern School of Business
