If anyone has or plans to commit, I'd love to hear why they chose Stern. I'm debating between Stern, Tepper, and Anderson. Thanks!

I have fully committed to Stern. I had to chose between multiple schools: Duke, Cornell, Tepper, Darden, Yale, Georgetown, Emory and (of course) Stern.
It came down to Duke, Yale and Stern. Ultimately, Stern won out.

There are a countless amount of reasons why Stern was my choice. However, three large reasons, and reasons that may help you in your decision, are the 1. Tight Knit Student Body 2. Ridiculously strong connection to alumni/NYC location etc. and 3. Fantastic course offerings with world renown professors.

1. Tight Knit Student Body

I had the opportunity to visit the school on multiple occasions and each time the feeling I got from the students, watching them interact, hearing them plan their Thursday night, etc was a very warm welcoming one. I felt that the students really enjoyed each other and all of it was amplified by the fact that they are in a very entertaining city. I heard many negative things about city schools especially NYU and how its a 'commuter school' but I don't think they are necessarily true. Additionally, I plan to work in NYC afterwards and feel that the network I will build here - with many students also planning on staying in the city - will be stronger than one in which we all disperse throughout the US. I am much more likely to continue a relationship with someone if we live in the same city afterwards.

2. Ridiculously strong connection to alumni/NYC location etc.
Some people say that since NYU is in the city that you are almost expected to network non-stop and that it can get taxing, whereas, at Duke you only have to network with alums on Wednesdays (or one or two days a week when there is a recruiting event). However, isn't networking the point? I think that having the choice and opportunity to network daily is phenomenal. If I am too tired to go to a networking event on a Friday than I can just go to the next one on Monday - not like I missed out on one of the two networking events that week - get my drift? On one of my class visits (I don't know if this was planned) but a CFO of a top entertainment company just happened to walk into the classroom. The teacher seemed like it was unexpected. The CFO spoke for about 10 minutes then left. The students - and I - loved it. You wont get this spontaneity in many other places.

3. Fantastic course offerings with world renown professors.
If you research the programs and their course offerings I am sure you will find NYU's as one of the best. Due to its strong undergrad business program and strong part-time program their is a vast amount of different types of courses. I found that at Duke you will get classes called 'investment banking' and at NYU you not only get that course but you get 'investment banking tax strategies for VC firms. ' The detail of the classes is bound to set you apart from other MBA's or at least put you on the right path.

And the professors are amazing: Edward Altman, Aswath Damodaran, Peter Drucker, Robert Engle, Nouriel Roubini etc.

I blurted out this response because I do not feel like taking the time to edit it - so I am sure it is loaded with biases and also assumptions and loopholes. But in the end NYU stood out for me - perhaps for subconscious emotional reasons. I am sure tons of great things could be said about Duke and Yale etc that would crush NYU but in my opinion/personal situation NYU won.

Right now I'm still debating between Kellogg and NYU, with NYU being my second choice, unless the Consortium throws me some good money.

I agree with everything PeterHAllen said. Not to be too repetitive, but the student body is so friendly and very tight nit, which is something I like. When I visited campus, students randomly started up conversations with me, which was nice when you are the awkward person waiting outside for your interview. Also, they easily offer the best range of courses I've seen from a school. Looking at their class list, I was getting upset that I wouldn't be able to take all the classes I wanted before graduation. The only thing that brings NYU second to Kellogg (once again unless I get a scholarship) is that I believe Kellogg has a stronger network in San Francisco, where I want to work.

Thanks for both of the responses above, they're incredibly helpful. I unfortunately didn't get a chance to attend a class when I came on campus for my interview as they were all full. I currently live in Seattle, so moving to NYC would be pretty big for me. Since I want to work in sports analytics, both Stern and Anderson make sense for me as they're located in entertainment capitals. The point you made of the goal of an MBA is to network is pretty valid for me, as the industry I want to join doesn't exactly recruit for open positions, it's all about the connections. Tepper still draws me because they've got such a strong analytics/statistics program (and I also got a good fellowship from them). I'm waiting to hear from Anderson on 1/28, but right now I guess I'm leaning towards Anderson or Stern. Thanks again!

Do you have to be invited for Summer Start or can you opt in?

From what I understand you have to be invited, and can't opt in. There isn't a special application, I think it's based on what NYU wants for their Summer Start class. I tried demonstrating my interest in it during my interview, but didn't get any notification that I was accepted.

This is where I got my information from:

Quote:
Consideration for Summer Start
All Full-time applicants will be considered for Summer Start. You cannot apply directly to the Summer Start program. Selection for Summer Start is at the sole discretion of the Admissions Committee on a space-available basis.

We understand that not every applicant will be able to participate or be interested in Summer Start. Therefore, every student who is contacted about Summer Start will have the opportunity to express his/her interest level in the program.

For students admitted to Summer Start, participation is mandatory. It is an academic program, and all of our academic programs require attendance and participation.

From talking to people that went through it (NYU is my #1 school - mad research) - they target people with non-traditional/medium-low quant backgrounds. so the person told me lots of military and just general non-financy people in it.

I'm summer start as well. I did see when registering that admitted students can write to the admission team outline why they would like to be in summer start and may be placed into the program if space allows. Summer start is also good for people with strong leadership potential, since it frees up time in the fall for club activities.

I heard there were also people in Summer Start who were going to do consulting after graduation. Is it really most just for "non-financy" people? What's the program like? The info on the site is very vague.

Apparently, admitted students can apply to Summer Start but need to clearly explain how they will benefit from it.

The question is - who is this program really targeting? Students with high potential but no prior exposure to the business world? or some other group?
