Please post your NYU Stern questions/concerns and one of us will try to answer you quickly. Also, shoot me a PM when you are visiting. If possible, I can show you the school from a current students perspective, and will at least give a few pointers on how to maximize your time.

For reference, I'm changing careers from consulting to investment banking and am in the class of 2010.

I'd love to help out some fellow gmatclubbers with NYU questions. Over the next few weeks I'll start putting up some information.

Hi,

Can you post the median stats of past NYU admits. Also, it would be helpful to post info that applicants in general dont already obtain from nyu website or in info-sessions.

Hi,

I am interested in applying to NYU for its strong emphasis and placement in the financial service industry.

I've been told that NYU is very much a commuter school with so central focal point for mba students to gather. I have not visited the school and was wondering whether you could comment on that.

Thanks,

Hi jsnooky33, I am currently waitlisted at NYU Stern for the full-time program. I am going to visit the school again in the next few weeks. Do you know any current students that would perhaps be willing to meet with me? I live pretty close to the city so I can pretty much visit whenever. Do you have any other helpful advice that you picked up during the application process? Thanks for your help.

Hey Policy, I'm not sure on what you are looking for the stats. A good place to check would be the admissions411.com site. On the other stuff, I'll hopefully be putting up some information soon. The biggest thing I noticed with Stern was to just be yourself. The students are pretty laid back and the admissions office seemed like they really tried to get to know you during the application process.

I didn't really bring this up with the current students I met (although I probably should have...) but it does make sense. It's VERY expensive to live in Manhattan, so many students will obviously commute. I didn't get the "feel" of a commuter school though. For background, I had to commute about an hour to school to a major commuter college for undergrad so I have some experience with that. After class everyone just went home and the campus life was pretty dead. However, from what I noticed with Stern, the campus is very active and the students were involved in numerous activies (both on and off campus).

Hey nyrberg, congrats on the waitlist. Hopefully you hear some good news soon. I'm currently in Washington D.C. so I'm afraid I don't know too many current students that well. The one thing I noticed with Stern students though is they are VERY approachable! It is probably the thing has surprised me the most so far... During some of the events the students will just walk up and introduce themselves. There were times I walked up to a few people, introduced myself, and they included me in the conversation without a second thought. The best advice I learned during the process is to be yourself. I know... very helpful Are you planning on visiting and just walking around? It seems like the admissions office (probably person who interviewed you) would like to know that you are going to be on campus.

Yes, I am basically planning on just walking around and I definitely intend to approach some students as I have heard, from a number of people, that Stern students are very open to talking to prospective students/applicants. I am actually waitlisted without an interview but I do plan on stopping by the admissions office. Although, I am not really sure what to expect or what this will actually accomplish. Anyway, thanks for taking the time to answer my questions. This will all work out one way or another.....

I will be in NYC next week and I also plan to visit Stern. ALthought when I asked the admissions office about class visits, they told me that class visits are not available at this time except for students currently on WL. I definitely want to talk to some students and take advantage of my visit since I am coming all the way from the West Coast. Jsnooky, would you be interested in meeting up next week?

The WL for classes only is a red-herring. Full time classes finished a couple of weeks ago.

I will be about after the weekend (I am, apparently, now an MBA2) - feel free to give me a shout. They are still doing tours though. I saw Isser doing one the other day (god knows why he was on it mind). Otherwise I can show you around. It is a bit of a ghost town right now, except for all the people studying for the CFA.

I am going to hear this misnomer till the day I die. I can't see how Stern is any more a commuter school than Columbia for full time, or Chicago from the Part time. The Full Time students all live in New York, maybe one person I know has a family out in New Jersey or somesuch. Space is a commodity - it is downtown New York, and you find that out pretty sharp when you try to rent an apartment.

That said, I have never found a frustration for space in the school - the majority of the building is exclusive to the Grad students (swipe access), I have never really had a problem getting a space to study (room for a team meeting or individual), except on one or two days when Damodaran had set a deadline for the project or final exam, as that meant 400 people were trying to do the same.

For lack of clear identified hang-outs you find in rural or campus schools, there is hardly a shortage of bars. Or events. Or birthdays. Same as any school where you have a bunch of people together. If anything, Stern is quite tight knit in the way it works on the FT, which is counter to the commuter tag. There are about 400 in each year (compared to 700 at Columbia), which means you get to know most people.

I would suggest asking in the Admissions Consultants part of the forum. The admissions process is soooooo random (I was rejected/waitlisted at two lesser schools and got into my top one) so I'm afraid I can't be of much help.

I'm curious what you guys/gals did for your personal expression. Did you all just write another essay or did you submit something?

I put together a powerpoint that was kind of a game for the adcom to find out what I do outside of work.

jsnooky33 / 3underscore, not sure if you're able to answer this but is it true that Stern traditionally has not done that well in placing its students into Management Consulting positions, specifically those focusing on strategy as opposed to marketing, operations etc.? In fact, I don't think I was even able to find a "consulting club" or the like on Stern's website.

I'm really enthusiastic about Stern as a school and what appears to be a fantastically close student community, but its reputation as a Wall Street feeder bothers me a little.

I'm going to focus on the marketing, strategy and entrepreneurial coursework offered at Stern, but my short-term goal is going to be a consulting position and I was wondering if you could provide me with some additional perspective?

Thanks very much!

jsnooky3/ 3underscore,

Thanks for your words of wisdome. I have always heard a lot about NYUs strong links with the media industry. Could you tell me a bit about NYUs media industry links ? What are the typical opportunities for a career change into the media industry ?

Sorry about the long delay, I forgot how much work moving was... To be honest, Stern doesn't seem to be as strong in consulting as compared to finance. Deloitte is the biggest consulting sponsor, but I know we have McKinsey too. Today was literally the first day on campus so I can fill you in better when the recruiting process gets under way. There is a really useful club, called the MCA: https://nyustern-mca.ecampusgroups.com/ ... r=1&id=162. I'd recommend sending an e-mail to one of the contacts for more in-depth consulting info.

Oh yeah, there are definitely a lot of students looking to go into media related jobs. I don't know much about the opportunities (I'm going for investment banking) but there are a couple of clubs here that can help you out: http://w4.stern.nyu.edu/studentactiviti ... oc_id=3660.
