Congrats cpace13! Your profile looks very similar to mine (at least based on GMAT and GPA stats). Can you briefly share your WE, extracurriculars, and nationality?
I might get some more hope if you tell me that you are not from consulting or investment banking

Thank you! I currently work in finance for a media company. I'm a white female. I've volunteered a bit in schools/tutoring but nothing extensive. Good luck!!

I applied in Round 1 and made a very stupid mistake. I overlooked below format requirements from Stern:

•All written essays must be typed and submitted using the standard U.S. 8 1/2” x 11” format, double-spaced, in 12-point font.
•Label the top of each essay with the following: Name, Date of Birth (month, day, year), Essay Number and Page Number (e.g.: Joe Applicant, January 1, 1983, Essay 1, Page 1).

Does anyone know is it possible for me to send an updated version of essays at this stage? And for those who are currently applying, please do PAY ATTENTION to the above requirements... T-T

I would email admchair@stern.nyu.edu and see what they say (when I had questions about the app and essays before I submitted it I was directed to email that address.
If they say you can't change it then I would offer some hope. I went to an admissions event in Washington, D.C. And the director of admissions handed out a sample application that had misspellings and mistakes. After we went through it she said they would still extend an interview because the candidate had a great background and they wanted to see in person if they were sloppy or whatever.

I went to Stern undergrad, absolutely hated the culture (cut throat and the opposite of collaborative) and administration...and the recruiting was considerably worse than I expected. Hopefully the MBA program is better, but make sure you research it well before matriculating.

Undergrad and grad building were old and decrepit when I went, and everything was extremely cramped. They've since re-done the undergrad school (it's still all underground with no lighting), not sure about the grad school. Undergrad students take classes in the mba school building, and can take mba classes, so I feel like this will definitely ruin school spirit for you guys.

I graduated during the financial recession years. Summer after junior year I was able to find a job that started immediately in September, I only needed 16 more credits, so I asked NYU Stern if I could take the classes at night, and start working - since the employment situation was horrific at that point. They were completely unwilling to work with me.

For undergrad, they basically used only GPA and SAT to let people in, so you got stuck with extremely one-dimensional people with poor social skills (usually people who couldn't get into Ivies because of not being well-rounded). The school was extremely ethnically segregated, and there was zero school spirit (due to lack of sports, campus, and "Stern curve" that turned everyone against each other). Cheating was rampant.

Most people think being in New York gives you an advantage in recruiting, but for undergrad at-least it really didn't....you were just expected to do more than other schools, but they were going to take the same amount of sternies regadless (you needed to do during the school year internships, go to a ton more speaker events, etc...when our peers outside of NY could get jobs without doing all of that).

I don't really know anyone who went to Stern for grad school, but most people who went undergrad left with a negative opinion (which is why it was getting killed in the ranking despite its stats a few year ago, not sure where they are at now). It's certainly a good school, don't get me wrong, but if you have the GMAT/GPA to get in, I'd recommend going to a competitor ranked around the same, all else being equal.

Interesting insights. All I've read so far is that for the business school Stern is supposed too be much more collaborative and less cut throat than Columbia. This must have been discussed in great length somewhere already. If anyone has more insights on this or can share a link to a different forum I'd appreciate it.
Also in for Round 2!

It's certainly possible that the grad school is different than undergrad. I got rejected from Columbia after interview...but honestly I wasn't feeling that school either. Very possible that both aren't very collaborative. I think also it might just be in general how people are who go into finance (part of the reason I'm leaving finance). Anyways, good luck everyone, just figured I'd give my insight so everyone can make informed decisions.

Still haven't heard from my round 1 application but I got a Stern brochure in the mail today. It would be cruel and unusual punishment to send a brochure and then get dinged, right???
