Hey guys! So yes, the news is true, I'm in for weeknights! Congrats to the other people who were notified yesterday! I would've checked in sooner, but apparently I had a little too much fun last night celebrating. For those waiting, I'm sure there will be lots of news after the holiday!

Thank you for your support and information CFACharterholder22.

I am wondering why the admission package from my "safety school" doesn't mention "deadline". I hope I didn't miss anything.

Happy 4th of July for everyone!!!

Hi all,
I just got an inquiry from the admissions committee. I live and work in NJ while my employer is in CA and the adcom needs an explanation.
I've planned it along the following lines. It would be great if I could get suggestions:
I've been with this company for the last 7.5 years. I started working in CA(HQ). I moved to the NY/NJ area after I got married. My wife's job would not allow relocation while mine did. Our team(software development) in any case has a multi-national presence with members in 3 different countries and they have been in several projects I led. The move was with the complete consent of management. There has been no disruption to my work and I continue to lead projects with people in the US, Canada and India.

Not sure if the above would suffice.
Thank you very much and have a great 4th of July!

I'm glad that atleast one male indian techie got some response. You might want to check the business week forum because a number applicants there have got a similar request. But to me your response looks okay....I mean I dont know what else you can say....

And a big congrats to all the admits....can someone congratulate me on my predictions !!!!

Have a good one, all!!

Hey Rskaushik,

you have a nice, solid profile. Great Q / V balance on the GMAT!

As to your reply, I would say something like… “Over seven years ago I started with XXXX company in CA, but the culture of our company allows for and encourages successful long distance collaboration, which enables me to operate out of NY without diminishing my effectiveness. Based on our needs at the time, my wife and I decided to make a move to New York on XXX DATE. My supervisor fully supported this relocation, which has been very successful for all involved and led to no disruption of my work whatsoever.”

But this is merely my own opinion / suggestion. Obviously your own judgment is most important!

FYI: The count is 172.
Approx. 37% of the Fall class is now in the DB.

I presume that there should be a huge jump early next week as the admits from Wed. get their deposits in. Things should get super busy again on the 9th, if past precedent holds true this year.


On another note, have any of the earlier admits heard anything from or about Kroll?

If anyone is curious, I paid yesterday using the credit card option and faxing the receipt, and I am already in the database. It's official!

Actually they are admitting students quicker than they did in the past. According to Tenore's numbers from last year, they had 130 admitted by July 4th, as opposed to 172 we are seeing this year.

I didn't get the packet in the mail yet either. The deposit instructions are in the "New Student Tour", linked in the status check website or if you go under "Accepted students" from the homepage. You have 2 weeks from the e-mail notification.

I am still waiting for ANY type of decision here. Just curious though...should I be concerned with the fact that Stern is still taking application?

Not at all, it is really meaningless. Every year, the Langone program accepts applicants long after the deadline. With over 60% of the seats remaining, it’s not time to worry at all (easier said than done, I know!).

I speculate that part of the reason apps are still being accepted is that NYU wants as many applicants as possible so that they can appear more selective. This helps the Langone program maintain its ranking. Additionally, the program may get a few more high quality students if it keeps the application door open. From what I see on the database, the adcom really tries to put together a diverse, well rounded class.

Thanks for the reassurance. In theory, the adcom reviews all the on-time applications first, right? I must have been waiting too long for a decision and ideas just start popping up in my head!

I wish I could say yes, but the past people who have applied late have been accepted early and vice versa. A poor girl who applied early with a 760 gmat didn't hear until late july in one year's thread.

In my best guess, the truly exceptional candidate …the ivy grad wit a 3.7 GPA, 730 gmat and a management job at a top 10 IB… will get in early. In fact, if such an app applied today, he’d probably get an admit the following Wednesday. As to the rest of us, it seems pretty random.

Being in an underrepresented group (females) and having a very good gmat score puts you in a good position, even with your GPA. Nothing is certain, but I wouldn’t worry too much.
