Sorry to hear about that. Atleast by getting waitlisted and by Stern's rolling admissions strategy, you are still in with a chance.

Per MBA Guru, I read the chance of acceptance from waitlist at NYU is 3%. Are there any more promising statistics out there and is there anything we can do at this point, besides sit and wait?

A good place to start will be the NYU Stern Waitlist FAQ link: http://applicant.stern.nyu.edu/statusch ... istFAQ.asp

It does say that you can submit additional/supplemental material.

"Spring til August" is quite too long for my tastes, I'm probably not going to hold out.

Waitlisted after interview :(

Does anyone know the stats for after interview WL? I'm trying to see if there is anything I can do to up my chances, but my profile hasn't changed much since I last applied - unless I retake the GMAT. What are you guys feeling about your WLs?

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

They're asking for updates that will help you, not explanations of your existing application. I would keep quiet unless you have something of substance that increases your application - promotion, successful launch that you directly influenced, GMAT increase, etc. Otherwise, yes, it will just sound like making an excuse. You have until April to better your app in some way.

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.
