Just got accepted and can't believe it. I've been following this thread and didn't think I had a shot with the profile's I've seen. For those of you waiting with less than perfect profiles, take solace in the fact I got in with the below:

Reapplicant
28- WM
650 GMAT (took it twice, first 580)
2.9 GPA from a state school in Finance (ranked in the lower 500's)
6 year Work experience (5 in Mortgage Sales, 1 in Financial Services- non manager)

Good luck to those that haven't heard and I look forward to meeting those that are in.


Congrats man!! You are definitely giving me hope! You got PM by the way.

I too have been reading this forum for a while and I received the good news today, as well. For those still waiting, be confident that your time will come soon.

My stats:

34 year old WM
640 GMAT
2.8 GPA from a top liberal arts college
12 years of work experience in real estate

Good luck to everyone who is still waiting!


Great news again!! Wow, I'm so encouraged with the slammer, and SternPT getting admitted. I guess they are done with high GMAT/GPA candidates, and have moved on to the lower ones as well.

hello,

i have been a silent observer of this forum for about 2 weeks. i wish i had discovered the forum earlier.

i was dinged yesterday. given my profile, i was, like my sign-in says, ambivalent about my chances of getting in after i saw some of your profiles. yesterday was the moment of truth for me. like someone mentioned earlier in the thread i was probably one of the 'fringe' candidates. anyhow, i am glad that my profile made other borderline candidates look better. so nothing was in vain. (just trying to put a positive spin on things). :lol:

following is my profile. also, i'd highly appreciate if anyone could provide some feedback on whether i should even bother for spring 2009. or perhaps i should simply look at Fordham instead. thanks in advance.

32 year old (non-indian) south asian male ( perhaps my app got lumped with other "M-I-Ts" and stood weak comparatively)
GMAT 630
GPA 2.7 - mathematics major, top 100 private university
6 years trading exp.
1 year independent consultant (entrepreneur) in developing financial analytics for hedge funds.


Based on profiles of most recently accpeted students, I would say you definitely have a chance. But you probably would want to have your GMAT above 700, and also write some kick ass essays and get good recommendations as well.

I have already registered for the classes. Where can i find the health form that we have to submit?

Also, we should arrange happy hour before the preterm weekend? It woudl be nice to start meeting the people that will be our "best friends" for the next ocuple of years. Anybody up for it?

I called the health center and they are mailing it to me.
I actually had my blood drawn today so that my doctor can confirm immunizations. Seems that no one has a record…

I feel that the adcom is filling up the weeknight option first. Does anyone else feel the same way? And with Fridays being a short working day at the adcom office, I also feel that I have to wait until next week for an answer.

By the way, I am still baffled with the application link...it's still on the school website!

I think I agree too. I am patiently waiting for weekend option. Looks like next week will be the big week for mass notification updates. How many seats should be assumed to be available.

On another note for all those that have been admitted, does the admitted student database show number of weeknight admits vs. weekend admits.

Is the deadline notification on 8/1 or 7/31, as 8/1 is a Friday and the adcom has short working days on friday. Any thoughts?

It is 8/1 according to the website. In theory, notifications are sent out on working days. It's just that a lot of people (especially me!) get less done on Fridays. But I think 8/1 might be an exception as people have a tendency to wait until the last minute to get things done! That is also something I can attest to :)

The students DB doesn't mention if someone has been admitted into Weekend or Weeknights.

From the Core Groups (the way students have been divided into classes), it appears (just my guess) that Westchester and Weekends make up approx. 20% each of the total available seats and Weekdays make up the rest. And we haven't seen many Weekend admits in this or BW forum yet. So, Weekend applicants, don't give up yet! Good news will soon knock your door.

If the weekday option takes 80% seat, it's easy for applicants to get in this option. Any thought?

It depends on the breakdown of the options chosen among applicant poll. If exactly 80% of applicants chose weekday and 20% of those chose weekend, then the difficulty would be the same. I wish I know the data.

I have a question for the earlier admits:

I am awaiting further information from the financial aid office and probably won't hear from them for another week or so. In the meantime, I paid my initial deposit and would like to register for my core group and classes because I have a strong preference for a T/Thurs schedule. It seems that you can't do so without either your aid info or paying it by credit card/check. Does anyone have any idea how urgent this is? Is it urgent enough to pay out of pocket and wait for reimbursement from the Stafford Loan program?

so the question is whether 80% applicants choose weekday option and 20% chooses weekend and westchester?

I would guess that the core groups haven’t yet been filled enough to really limit your choices. Only 2/3rds of eventual 450 enrollees can even access the registration form, and what percentage of them have already registered? However, I am sure the situation will soon change as people strive to meet the August 11th deadline.

I would guess that if you register by next week, you’ll probably be OK.

doesn't this mean too many applicants for weekend option but not enough applicants for weeknight?

I don't know if it means there arent enough apps for weeknights, but it does seem to indicate that weekend may be filled. It's possible that NYU has limited ability to seat weekend folk.
