Great question! I have no idea yet. Figured I'd start thinking about that after meeting people at Preview.



I'm also planning on living in East Village, if it won't break my loan bank. Also, has anyone gotten a sense for how many students will be attending in the Fall? I'm part of the Facebook group and there's only about 100 people on there. There's about 50 here, and while I'm sure many people have not joined either site, it just seems much lower than the typical Stern year of around 400 students.

I think you will see numbers step up significantly once the R2 notifications are out for most schools by the end of next week. People will have all the information at hand and start making decisions! Having a Stern shirt already, certainly doesn't hurt ;-)

You have to complete at least 9 credits, so you'll have the entire first semester to figure out how it works and if you want to do it in your 2nd semester :)

Just received my admit today! Unfortunately I won't be able to attend the admit weekend in April since I'm all the way in China. Is anyone looking into on-campus dormitory housing? I know spaces are super tight so what are the chances of actually getting those?

For the people who live in NYC, any tips for finding housing? I'll be at the Preview weekend in 2 weeks, and would love to get set up with a place for the fall during this trip so that I don't have to fly back again in July.

Check out sites like www.streeteasy.com - this is one of the main sites used for apartment search in the city.

What's the point? There are barely any Sternies at McKinsey, especially in NYC. This firm clearly prefers Columbia, Wharton, HBS and other Top 10 B-school graduates.
IBM, Deloitte and other second-tier consulting firms are much more realistic targets. Btw, Deloitte offers a decent immersion program in July.

For those who didn't get scholarships, did you try to negotiate one with admissions? I didn't receive scholarship money either but have an offer from another school that I'm thinking of leveraging.

Also, is it really that challenging for Stern grads to land at McKinsey? They showed up pretty strong on the most recent career report but I might have remembered incorrectly.

It's definitely not impossible to go McKinsey from Stern. It is a core school for them, so they will recruit there every year. Will they take as many as they do from CBS? No. But they will always take people. I wanna say I saw a report with ~14 from Stern in one year, but totally blanking on where I dug that up right now.

If I had that mindstate with my low gpa I wouldn't have gotten into any top b-school because I never would have tried.

A quick search for Stern and McKinsey on LinkedIn turns up 221 results - barely? I don't doubt that McKinsey may have more spots for grads from Columbia, Wharton or HBS - frankly I have no idea how they structure their recruitment-- but whats the point in having a defeatist attitude?

If you exclude everyone who went to NYU for undergrad and did their MBAs at the very top schools, as well as people who had pre-MBA consulting experience, office assistants and HR employees, you'll see that there are barely any Sternies at McKinsey in NYC. That said, I'm not pessimistic, I just know what the odds are. Congrats on getting accepted to Stern, Tepper and Johnson, but if you were rejected by CBS (and any other top schools you applied to), why do you think you'll get to McKinsey? No offense, but don't be overly confident and be open to the idea of second- and third-tier consulting firms - they recruit a lot from Stern.

You have a good point, McKinsey is one of the most elite management consulting firms and among the most desirable MBA employers in any industry. Anyone looking to get into top consulting firms should aim high but also cast a wide net - competition will be tough when aiming for the best. No one is arguing with you there.

But dude, when you say things like If you exclude everyone who went to NYU for undergrad and did their MBAs at the very top schools, as well as people who had pre-MBA consulting experience, office assistants and HR employees, you'll see that there are barely any Sternies at McKinsey in NYC. you have to provide backup. Where are you getting these "facts" from? Did you actually go through those 221 LinkedIn profiles and determine that the majority of these people fit the criteria you posted about? Your two posts on gmatclub are on this thread alone! You seem like a troll to me.

You said Congrats on getting accepted to Stern, Tepper and Johnson, but if you were rejected by CBS (and any other top schools you applied to), why do you think you'll get to McKinsey? No offense, but don't be overly confident and be open to the idea of second- and third-tier consulting firms - they recruit a lot from Stern.

Thank you! I received acceptances from three more schools, CBS was the highest US News Ranked school I applied to and the only ding. Where did you apply and where are you attending?

I don't think I will get into McKinsey, in fact I do not even plan on trying as consulting is not the field I am targeting, I wish to stay in finance. I was just trying to help other Sternies out. But I do not think that my ding at CBS signifies that my chances (if I took them) are nil at McKinsey.

No offense taken, your argument was to weak to be considered offense - and I disagree with you on the confidence thing, I think it is important to maintain a high level of confidence in these fields - there is a difference between confidence and arrogance.

Here is another link to McKinsey's website for NYU Stern students outlining their previous recruiting schedules at the school:
http://www.mckinsey.com/careers/your_ca ... YU_-_Stern

Weird -- for a company that 'barley' recruits anyone from Stern they go far out of their way to make it seem like they do. Even creating a special page for this school. (sarcasm intended)

Sorry to jump in the middle of this. But if helps, I work in a top consulting firm right now, and know people who left my first to go to Stern and are now at McKinsey. Also, with all the research I have done so far, I would kill to get off the waitlist and get into Stern.

I do believe that saying Stern is not good enough for McKinsey is a bold statement. Stern may not have a high # of students going to McKinsey, but the #s are not far off either

I let the admissions team know that I had a substantial scholarship offer (over 50% of tuition) from a similarly ranked school and they did not budge. They reiterated that all scholarship offers are given at the time of admission, and are final.
