Hi HubaHuba,

I've been working in education for the past 5 1/2 years. I taught for three (while in grad school, at NYU actually), and then worked as a test developer and then as a project manager/editor, developing education products. I did switch jobs a few times, although I think the rationale for those switches was clear (first was only part-time/grad school, the second had too long of a commute), and the jobs were at least all in the same industry. I did not get asked about that.

My work pre-2010/grad school work was probably less clear (arts/luxury real estate), and I did get asked about that initial jump to teaching. I just said, truthfully, that those jobs were very interesting, but also very sensitive to economic fluctuations. I wanted to do something more practical and something that would allow me to work in a variety of settings. Also, my parents are educators, and I like working with people, so it seemed like a good choice.

I mentioned that my manager had recommended that I pursue an MBA, and she suggested that I track my coursework so that I could be slotted for a more specific, more senior job at my company.

I felt like I was pretty clear in my essay that I wanted to stay at my current company, even mentioning which classes would be beneficial for certain positions. However, I did change careers twice before 2010, so that certainly may have been seen as a lack of focus. I've only been at my current job for a year as well.

Anyway, hoping for the best for everybody... :)

Wolsasmom - I feel your story doesn't show lack of focus. I am not an adcom member, so I can only speculate. One suggestion I have for future, avoid saying that your job was sensitive to economic fluctuations. I would say, though luxury real estate had a promising career, I wanted to do something more meaningful. Education industry is going through a lot of exciting changes, and the technology is helping provide quality education to remote areas, at fraction of a cost. I wanted to be part of the solution...blah blah

other than that, your past NYU link, project management experience, and how well you connected your story in your essays will definitely make a very competitive application.

good luck and please keep us posted!

Thanks for the feedback, HubaHuba. My guess is that the # of remaining seats will have an impact on things...but who knows.

You are absolutely right, Wolsasmom. I am hoping one of the admitted students can share that info with us...

Nope but I think by end of this week most of us should find out. Definitely by next.

Just a hunch. Couple of my friends applied late last year on rolling admissions and found out by the second week of August. Hopefully it is the same this year.

Hi Demure,

Were your friend accepted? When I logged into the interview system, there were slots open through maybe mid-August? Also, they extended the deadline to July 30th last year, which did not happen this year. I think I've seen the Westchester deadline get extended until August 30th, too.

Got email notification a little before 10 am.

Based on past records, they are consistent in sending notifications on Wednesday morning.

Good luck to all those who are are still waiting to hear back!

Congrats everyone! I'm still waiting post-interview. Oddly, my portal seems to have been refreshed. It had a confirmation that I had interviewed, and now it is back to the "schedule an interview" screen. No decision yes or no, though. After seeing these posts, I'm happy for you guys, but don't feel good about my own prospects.

wolsasmom - i am sure they have a separate pile for those who were interviewed. Hang in there, maybe they will send next round of notifications next Wednesday or sooner.

I had opted for Manhattan accelerated - 2 year - as first choice and got admitted to the same.
