I know it's easier said than done, and I don't have a crystal ball, but I wouldn't freak out too much ChickenDinner. Your GPA looks good to me, and your GMAT falls comfortably within the percentile ranges for NYU (620-730).

hang in there, ChickenDinner, from what I have seen there is really no order how they send out acceptances.

I'm still waiting to hear back, but I figured I'd chime in on the tuition assistance. I'm one of the lucky few who will have tuition covered 100%, including books, etc. (with the "B" requirement).

I'm starting to get a bit nervous... another of my friends from work just got accepted for washington sq. weeknights. Same undergrad institution except he was an econ major, 650 GMAT, about a year less of experience vs. my own (he probably has 3 years), and no certification. I'd really like to know SOMETHING by the end of the week... but it seemed like last week notifications were only sent out on Mon/Tues...

Just out of curiosity... of those who were already admitted, when did you submit your application? Was it on the deadline or substantially before?

Have any "last minute" applicants heard back yet?

I'm getting nervous as well. I still haven't heard and submitted on 5/14. ChickenDinner, we're in the same boat!

The longer I wait to hear, the more anxious I'm going to get!

For those of you who got admitted: I paid the deposit this morning and faxed the forms, how long does it take them to confirm receipt of payment and forms? I even emailed the adcom but got no response yet.

I submitted on the 13th, but I know my 2nd letter of reccommendation wasn't submitted until the afternoon on the 15th (absent-minded superior). Again... silence ever since.

My deposit (and medical info) went in the mail on Tuesday. I faxed Ad Com on Monday morning. I haven't heard back regarding any of these items.

I submitted 9:30 pm may 15 and my transcripts reached NYU on may 18th.
I am in process of doing the kroll verification right now. my employer 1 comes up correctly with the name of the company (my current employer). However, for employer2, there is no box to fill out the name of the company. it only asks for phone number, salary details and start/end date. anyone else got this problem?? im just assuming that employer 2 is my previous employer!!
any insights on this would be really helpful!!!

I've followed this thread for a while and was afraid to jump in. I got into the Washington Square Weeknights yesterday as a re-applicant. I figured I'd post my stats:

25/m-Caucasian
690 (92% verbal, 68% quant., 5.5 AWA)
3.84 undergrad (smaller school in DC area)
3.5 years work experience in corporate finance at a $2bil/year company
Good rec's/essays
Extra curricular: audit chairman at a charitable org, regular blood donor, couple of softball leagues

As far as paying, my company's policy is to reimburse 100% for an "A" and 50% for a "B" or "C". I'm trying to work something out outside of the policy, but I'm not optimistic. Either way, I still need to take out loans up front...

Thanks for everyone's kind words!

erik7, Talk about an incentive to get an A. Guess you won't be socializing much, huh?

Yeah, I have just accepted the fact that I will most likely be nearly 100K in debt for the next 5-10 years. Luckily for me, I got scholarships for both a private high school and private undergrad, so I have no loans. Guess it is about time I pay my dues.

To be clear, my company does offer 100% tuition reimbursement (for any grade above a C) plus $500 for books per semester. However, tuition reimbursement is at the discretion of your manager. And he was quick to tell me, right after he denied my request for a rec, that he wasn't going to support any requests for tuition reimbursements. Oh well.

I submitted my application on May 15th at 12 Noon. For those that had anything reach after the May 15th deadline, NYU seems to be pretty clear on the fact that they will notify you later than those that submitted on or before the deadline. So hang in there!!!

Lastly, I haven't done anything yet. I am still soaking it in. But I'm going to start by moving some money into my checking account to pay the deposit, do the new student tour, and begin the Kroll background check. I believe the whole thing takes about 5 weeks.

Hi all,
As some of the others, I've been reading for a bit, so I decided to post my stats. I haven't heard back yet and submitted in early March. My stats are:

26/m-Caucasian
730 (99% verbal, 75% quant., 5.5 AWA)
3.6 Undergrad at Notre Dame
4 years work experience in corporate finance at a fortune 50 company
CPA
Good rec's/essays
Extra curricular: marathon runner (fundraise for charities), treasurer for a non-profit

Still waiting, hoping to hear soon.

Erik7 - what did you do to improve your application package as a 2nd time applicant?

As I'm a reapplicant myself I figured I'd chime in: I was waitlisted til 1/22 then rejected, so I re-took the GMAT and improved by 60 points (600 to 660). I also was lucky enough to get accepted for a better position at my company a couple of days before submitting my application so that may have helped too. The 2nd time around I also submitted essay #4 to explain the above. Didn't re-write #3 as I thought that was good already. I think my main issue was my 1st gmat score being out of the 80% range.

I was flat out rejected on the notification day last time around. This time, I made sure to make improvements to all three of the sections under "Selection Criteria" (academic profile, professional achievements and aspirations, and personal characteristics). I re-took the gmats and went from a 600 to a 690 with my biggest improvement coming on the quantitative section (from the info session I went to at NYU, this is probably the most important section). I received a promotion at work and made sure I conveyed very clear-cut career goals and objectives. Finally, I took on more leadership roles in my activities, such as becoming the audit committee chairman for our district at a charitable organization as opposed to just being a general member. Like Nick79 said, I wrote all about this in Essay #4, and I did not re-do Essay #3. I had 2 letters of recommendation again (only one was required), and they were from the same two people as my first application.

To answer another question on this thread, I submitted my application about 11 p.m. the day before the deadline (so basically 24 hrs before the deadline).

LEmeY, did this help at all?
