Hello,

I have not yet received my password to check the status of my Langone fall 2010 application. Anybody has faced similar problem?

Also, I had mailed my transcripts and 3rd essay, other than the shipping label was there anything else that had to be on the label so they can consolidate the online application with mailed documents?

I sent Stern admission an email yesterday and waiting for their reply. Getting very concerned.

Thanks,
Hardik


The password to check your status should have been included in the initial notification letter they sent you. When did you submit your application online? And when did you submit your mailings? If you sent everything in before May 15th, you should have received a confirmation e-mail with your password. Oh, and check your bulk/junk folder! If all else fails, definitely call up the Langone Admissions Office and ask what's going on.

During the verification process, who do they call at your employer and what type of info do they verify? (title/salary/manager??) Do they reach out directly to your manager, the contact we provided for recomendations?

Thanks

Nick79,
It means that they have started the verification process. They will start calling your employers pretty soon. Atleast that's what happened in my case. My employer got the call on the same day. Hope this helps.

Does this mean they started the verification process? The e-mail doesn't really say much though. Any idea?!

Sure does; I e-mailed the adcom to make them aware of my group transfer within my company, as my direct supervisor is now a different person than my original recommender. This happened after i submitted my application though so when I submitted it I was still under my old manager. Hope this won't cause any issues because I told the truth in my application.

I am sure it is in the packet I have at home, but can anyone provide me the School ID for the Kroll process.

Just to answer some questions, I submitted my application on May 15th and found out on June 7th that I was accepted.

Also, I was looking on the website and it appears that I will be able to waive out of the Firms and Markets class as an Economics major. Langone2009 and any other current students, do you think this is worth doing? What is the sentiment around waiving out of classes? Will I be able to take a different core class instead or do I just take one class the first semester?

Sorry for all the questions!

Does anyone have any insight on the best way to reach Washington Square by train and other mass transit from the Northeast Corridor line in NJ?

I'm thinking it might be better to just drive because it looks like a lot of trains don't run on the weekend, but I'm hoping there is an easier way.

BskoolHopeful I'm not a current student, but the website says that you can take additional electives in place of any class you place out of.

How long does the KROLL process normally take? What types of questions can they typically come back with? Any input would be highly appreciated!

You can take the NE Corridor all the way to Penn Station, then take the A, C, or E train to Washington Square... it's maybe 3 stops down the line... very easy trip.

If you're heading in on weekends... a [very] recent Stern grad in my office said driving can actually be easier/quicker.

bskoolhopeful:
Lots of people waive out of firms and markets, you would also waive out of global economy. If you are scheduled to take F & M first semester (you may not depending on which core group you are in), and you waive out you can take another core class and I would if I were you. If you are going to be taking out any loans you will need 6 credits to qualify. The basic 4 core classes that you will take fall and spring semester are Leadership in Organizations, Accounting, Statistics and Firms & Markets. So just take one of the others. It's also a great opportunity to meet new people. The only reason to not wiave out is if you want to be a TA at some point in the Econ dept. You must have taken the class you are going to TA for. Hope this answers your question!

another option for people who are in the weekend option could be to drive to one of the NJ path stations (journal sq), park there, and then take the path to NYC and get off at say 9th st path station. I have never tried it personally, but it could end up being faster. I have to try it one Saturday.

do you guys know if the admission process is rolling? applied pretty early on, but haven't heard anything back yet, so starting to get anxious. I think most notifications going out on 8/1 are going to be dings/waitlist. So, for those not accepted yet, we have 4 weeks left to find out.

I was hoping to hear something this week on Monday and Tuesday as it happened in previous weeks. I checked the Facebook page and there are around 55 people who are part of it and got accepted. No clue what adcom is doing right now. Keeping fingers crossed.

I copied this from an old thread (by user Tenore on the fall 2008 thread). it's an analysis of the fall 2007 admission timeline.

nyu-langone-fall-59931-100.html
(second to last post)

assuming the process hasn't changed much in the past few years, looks like the majority of notifications haven't gone out yet.

hopefully this makes you a little less anxious :)

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.

today>>> thanks for the post, very helpful

I'm not too worried yet. At an info session that I went to a couple months back, one of the adcom members mentioned that a large chunk of the decisions are made in July... so we still have plenty of time to sweat it out :wink:

Honestly, you have to factor in how much time it takes to go through each of the 900 or so applications... each 'package' (complete set of application documents) are reviewed by at least 3 separate adcom members. Even if each member only takes 2 hours to review each applicant... you're still looking at around 5,400 work hours (at the low end).

Obviously, this is just a gross generalization, based on rough guestimated numbers... but you can appreciate what an enormous undertaking the review process is, and hopefully see how it's nearly impossible to send out all notifications in only 4 weeks.

So relax, grab a beer (or four), and watch some World Cup 8-)

I stated KROLL process on Tuesday, They called HR in our company on Wendesday. Somebody from KROLL today emailed me asking for copies of my undergrad degree certificate since it was not from the US. When I look at the fax number I thought it was a spam, then I figured that person is from KROLL India based on the email signiture. Thank God they also accept scan/email.
