Yes I activated.

I was contacted by Kroll a couple of days after i fax the realese form. They wanted to have some documentation from my undergraduate institution. I spoke to the lady after i sent the documents and she said that she has been trying to reach my school but with not success. Then I decided to call my school myself and see if i could convince them to give that information. When i called i found that the main phone number, the one listed on the website doesn't work (I am not kidding). I finally got through using all kind of resources, and they told me that this kind of information only can be release to the student. That is why i am freaking out. I imagine that if there is something worng they would call me, but at the same time, I feel that they may keep trying to reach my university and either they will never be able to or if they finally are, they will dont get any information.

I called again to the lady at krolland she siad they cannot release the status of your case.

so waiting, waiting, waiting.


I'm guessing your degree is not from the US, right? It would make sense that they check that...

I actually heard from Kroll India. They want payslips(first and last) from the company I left 10 years ago. I was with them for about a year. I had no idea payslips would be this important a decade down the line. What I sent Kroll from that company was a certificate on company letter head that specifies start and end date and reason for leaving with the Sr Training Manager's signature(since this was officially "training"). He and my actual supervisor are no longer with the company and I do not have their contact details.
I doubt if even the company(actually a major one in India) would retain records from that long ago. The certificate has the company's contact# that I would imagine has changed.
I am at my wits end. Any suggestions?


I think you did the right thing, and it should be sufficient. It is sort of ridiculous that they ask for payslips 10 years back. Does your company outsource accounting department? If so, those companies are usually good at keeping record and you can try to work something out with them.

Thanks for the pointer bkk. They hadn't outsourced at least back then. I'll try and see if I can find out.
On the other hand, I'm a little surprised we are even having to provide documents. Isn't Kroll this top notch(almost a secret service!) agency that does solid research(read: actually doing the legwork to go to the institutions/companies when they have been provided with all the data)? I mean, we paid a 100 big ones for this! All this sounds more like adjudication than verification.

Yea, employment data should be Kroll expertise though I am not sure how this work in India. Imagine the guy that contacted you is enjoying a nice $100 dinner with his friend ordering $100 wine from my pocket waiting for you to get him his stuff. :twisted:

I get the same message when I try that link. I assumed it would be activated after we register for classes and they complete processing our registration.

CFA22/Tenore, can you guys tell if you got this access AFTER you sent in your registration?

However, I would agree with other folks in that this has nothing to do with Kroll results.

With all this Kroll nonsense, we should start including "Date of Kroll Notification" to our stats list! :P

Umm...what is it now? Just ONE person from our group that has heard back? This is crazy...I would like to take the "no news is good news" stance, but I also don't like to jinx myself!

If the db count is 375 (plus 50 say ) why are we on the waitlist. I mean what's the thinking behind this....anyone knows really what happens with the process ? like, how do they review from here.


Check out this, from last year: http://gmatclub.com/forum/post354119.html#p354119... 2 gmat clubbers got off the waitlist on Aug 9th.

So there is hope, but also, don't forget that the spring app deadline is only 6 weeks away.



Are you serious? Dang, I really don't have much time left..

I followed the waitlist FAQ suggestion and retake GMAT but can only get 20 pts more... 640 Q49V28. I don't expect I can improve my verbal in a few days anyway. I don't think my new score will help much. If I knew that I could submit new score after the deadline, I would have spent more time to study.....

Good luck to all that are still waiting!!!

Yeah, it's faster than you'd think.
Maybe someone should start a Langone spring '09 thread!

I contacted them and they said this:

New students beginning in Fall 2008 have not yet been assigned Core groups nor do they have any pages set up in AIS to verify their schedules. You will be able to view your Fall 2008 schedule via the New Student Tour in late-August/early-September once Core groups have been assigned.
See you at Pre-Term!
The Langone Program Office


Any idea why i cant see my courses? Starting to freak out!

For those having trouble with their passwords on the AIS page, I received the same message as recently as last night but I am able to access the remaining requirements portion now....I registered on Tuesday night if that helps you figure out when you should have access.

DB count has been at 375 since noon.

Jerseygirl,
With your profile I'd wager you stand a great chance of getting off the waitlist.

To folks who have already registered: Do we have to register and pay by Aug 11 to avoid late fee? Or, we are fine until Sep 17? How long did they take to assign the core groups once you submitted your preferences?

I am able to access (using my netid) all the relevant applications (SIMON, email, blackboard etc.) except the courses evaluations webpage. I activated my netid just few hours back though. Any suggestions?

I also received an email from Kroll India regarding my UG transcripts couple of days back. They wanted me to send them a copy of my UG degree (front and back). I am currently traveling and my original degree is back in the States. I called them up (luckily it was local call for me as I was in Delhi that time :)) and explained that I won't be able to provide a copy of the back side of the degree (I had a scanned copy of the front side). They asked me to send whatever I had.

After a girls' night out at AC and support from JerseyBoy and rskaushik, I am actually in a really good mood. Thanks :)

So i finally got my degree from India and have sent it to NYU. Do you guys think they will still consider this for review? They had sent an email to me saying they would not process my application till I did not send the degree. Any thoughts?
