Fall 2007 Langone Admissions - Analysis of the wait

Fall 2007 general facts:

- Applicants: 1077*
- Admission rate: 46%
- Admits: 495*
- Percent of admits who enroll: 92%
- Final class size: 456

* I calculated these results from the info in business week, the others I just copied.

Timeline facts:

~ 15% of admits notified in first 4 weeks.
~ 50% of admits notified by 2nd week of July.
~ 90% of admits notified by August.
~ 65% (290) of admits notified between July 4th and Aug 3rd, making July the busiest month.

The Timeline:

May 15: Deadline passes / App review begins
May 23: First GMAT club member admitted (checkitout)
June 19: 75 students admitted (according to the admitted student d-base)
June 27: 108 admitted
June 27: First GMAT club member rejected (RCReddy)
July 04: 130 admitted
July 13: 230 admitted (huge jump!)
July 22: 262 admitted
July 24: 288 admitted
July 25: 306 admitted
Aug 03: 420 admitted
Aug 09: Some waitlisted folks get in.
Aug 09: 440 admitted
Aug 17: 447 admitted
Aug 20: Several reject notices went out.

Note 1: It takes a few days for an admit to pay the deposit and show up in the database.
Note 2: Data is from the gmat club ‘NYU Langone Fall 2007’ thread

Observations and assumptions:

- Most of those who are admitted in the first 4 weeks have super strong profiles.
- Having a high gmat score does not mean you’ll know sooner. Aurora73 gets in on Jul 18th with a 760 gmat.
- Submitting early or late seems to have no effect on when you get notification.
- Notifications typically come on Tuesdays and Fridays (needs confirmation).
- 2 gmat clubbers get off the waitlist in early August.

Hello all - is it just me or is it a bit unusual that there hasn't been more news over the last few days? By this time last year, there was a steady stream of folks hearing back but that doesn't seem to be the case. Perhaps the higher application volume is slowing their review? Whatever the case, it seems odd that they're taking so much time.

I know the wait is frustrating, but NYU seems to be on par with past performance. However, without a report on how many people are in the new student database, we really don’t have an objective way to tell how things compare to last year.

The action will pick up late this month / early next.

I have access to the database. I'll give updates on Fridays around 5 PM regarding the total admitted. If I check and see a big bump in the total on a particular day, I'll post that too. As of right now, there are 67 students in the database including me. Here is the breakdown by industry:

Industry Total
Accounting/Control 2
Advertising 1
Consulting 3
Engineering 7
Finance-Comm Banking 2
Finance-Corp Finance 5
Finance-Other 7
Finance-Sale & Trade 5
General Management 3
Hum. Res./Personnel 1
Information Systems 8
Marketing 5
Operations/Prod 2
Other 9
Research & Develop 1
Sales/Business Dev 3
Strategic Planning 3

I'm not going to list undergrad schools of those admitted or employer information because I think that would be over stepping my bounds. It has all of that information in the database though. It's really interesting.

This sticker is dangerous and inconvenient but I do love Fig Newtons!

Hang in there. Speed of the response is not the most important factor here, as I learned. Don't give up, we're all rooting for you.

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.

So I decided to make a chart mixing CFA’s report on the admitted student database with my data from 2007. This should give us an idea of how adcom has paced itself this year vs. last year and should give us a little preview of what is to come...

DATE ---- 2007 ----- 2008
6/13 ..... nr ...... 67
6/19 ..... 75 ...... 104
6/27 ..... 108 ..... 143
7/04 ..... 130 ..... 172
7/09 ..... nr ...... 217
7/13 ..... 230 ..... ???
7/22 ..... 262
7/24 ..... 288
7/25 ..... 306
8/03 ..... 420
8/09 ..... 440
8/17 ..... 447

Also, is should be noted that, in past years, mass dings / mass waitlist notices usually came in late July (along with a -lot- of admits). I speculate that the adcom will only ding / wl someone prior to mid-July point if they are missing something essential, like work experience or minimum level academics (for instance, a gmat of 510 or a job flippin’ burgers will probably earn an early ding).

Sorry if I offend anyone but I really wanted to know why you all are so anxious/excited about getting into NYU Langone, a program that won't give you any valuable assistance from their career services and treats the Langone students as their ATM machines and second-class citizens?

Did you stop to consider the fact that we are not all career switchers?

Langone isn't set up with career switching in mind. In the essay about why a PT MBA makes sense, they are looking for why it makes sense for you to advance with your company. In other words, why are you going PT and not FT? When I was at the information session, the speaker specifically said that one of the main things they look for in your essays is why your company supports your decision to go PT. What value will the MBA add in their eyes? There are many reasons to go PT over FT but one of the main ones in Langone's eyes should be advancement in your current profession. If you want to switch jobs or careers, go FT. Since they look at the PT people as people with jobs who aren't switching careers, why should they pour resources into the career services center? NYU doesn't look at the PT people as second class citizens at all. They do a great job helping working professionals achieve the goal of advancement in their current profession. If, however, you are a PT MBA career switcher, you can find your own recruiter very easily. If you're proactive, you can get this done on your own. It's all about personal motivation.

This sticker is dangerous and inconvenient but I do love Fig Newtons!

Because it’s NYU.

The Langone core program is incredible. I have my courses pretty much mapped out, and I can’t stop from having a little giddy excitement from reading the syllabi (although my girlfriend feels I am crazy for this.) Moreover, what is better than presenting a case analysis and then having that reviewed by classmates that are just as competitive and passionate as you? If the people in this thread are any indication, Langone will be worth it just because of the student body.

What strikes me most in the new student tour is how the Langone program seems to draw all the strength from Stern full time, yet maintains its own discrete identity. Furthermore, the adcom seems to pay particular attention to creating a class that has a wealth of professional experience among a variety of fields. In fact, I believe that Langone’s reluctance to help those with career placement is linked to the fact that it tends to admit students that have good positions in good companies. Some top companies have multiple representatives in the 2008 database, and I am sure the company is paying tuition. Would it make sense for Langone to help these students leave their sponsoring company?

Langone seems to be a means for successful professionals to refine themselves and take their careers to the next level. It is not a career or job switcher’s school.

Of course I am just a newly admitted student, but my early impressions are that Langone is all that it’s billed to be. People are still killing themselves just to get in, so I must not be too far off the mark.
