Great Program - Amazing People

REVIEWER IDENTITY VERIFIED by membership [?]

This review is for NYU Stern

Program Full Time MBA

Class of 2019

Experience during the program

NYU Stern really focuses on recruiting for IQ and EQ (emotional intelligence), and it shows in the student body. I have had the opportunity to meet so many wonderful and smart people, and the network you make from this program is very worthwhile. The course and professors are interesting to - in the night classes you will often find professors who are experts in their field and currently working. The founder of Buzzfeed occasionally teaches a night class. The recrutiting options for off-campus jobs are great as well because of the location in NYC. Any company you could possibly want to network with is just a subway ride away. I have seen other students from schools in Boston at recruiting events, and they travel down to NYC Thursday night and have to get a hotel for the weekend to do the same thing that I can do leaving my apartment in the morning.

About job placement process

The recruiting process is solid and great companies do come to campus, but it can be a little difficult to get top jobs if you don't have a great background coming into the program. There are plenty of kids with awesome GMAT scores and great grades who didn't even get an interview for MBB. That's not to stay it's not possible to get top consulting jobs, but they don't take many people from Stern (at least for internships). IB is a different story - plenty of people get internships at top banks. Some people who recruit for banking get no banking offers, but the majority get something, and every bank you could possibly want to work for recruits in decent numbers at Stern. It's also a good place to go if you want to work at Amazon - we send a bunch of people there every year.

Overall Excellent Experience

REVIEWER IDENTITY VERIFIED by membership [?]

I found the hourly package worked best with my needs because I had used a consultant for a few hours last year during a (failed) attempt at getting into Wharton, and wanted to try again this year as well as go for other schools. My resume was in decent shape, but I had really no idea how to package my story since I didn't have brand name work experience.

Rachel from Veritas was phenomenal as an admissions consultant. She helped me from day one craft my story and present my interests and accomplishments as a cohesive package. I had worked with a different admissions consulting firm last year for applications and the consultant I worked with was fine, but it was a far superior experience working with Rachel.

Her biggest point of added value was the interview stage. She came to our interview prep sessions with amazing targeted insights for each school and I could see my interviewers' eyes light up each time I hit on one of the targeted points we had prepared. Would definitely recommend Rachel for essay/resume prep as well, but I would ABSOLUTELY tell people to go to her for interview prep.
