  • nyer03nyer03 Registered User Posts: 48 Junior Member
    ok. whatever. what do you other people think? I don't think think I am stern material. Am I? You know, since Stern is so HARD! I probably will not get in!
  • johnstjohnst Registered User Posts: 381 Member

    1350 SAT
    3.8 GPA

    8 AP courses over 4 years, very good private school in Westchester County, NY; Indian (the asian kind) male

    I really, really like NYU, and I ED'd for Finance. I really hope I do get in, but I'm nowhere near the same level as the rest of you, which makes me kind of sad.

    gosh, how could you only get a 700 on your writing SAT II..............

    come on, of course you're going to get in.

    unless stern doesn't want someone who already runs three businesses, one of which is being bought by a fortune 500 company. they might think you think you're too good for them.

    does it help though, the businesses thing? I really do run/co-run four companies:

    - An Accounting one (also an LLC) (I work with my mom and I do the bookkeeping for 5 companies [2 furniture stores, 2 jewlerys, and 1 computer store)

    - A Real-estate managment company (I basically manage my father's company's buildings/properties)

    - My digital studio (I do all the visual work, and my brother does the audio, we do web, identity, print, video, and audio)

    - Mecho, LLC (Actually it's my fathers but I run it now since he never has enough time)

    So would all this REALLY make a difference? I'm asking honestly because I do want to go to Stern (even though I'd prefer Wharton) but my stats, for my first 3 HS years, aren't that strong. I also had an Internship with Ernst & Young, LLP during my 10th grade summer.

    Anyways, would all this really make a difference? If so, where would I add things like this on the application?

    I do think that an extracurricular like that can be important. I myself started an internet business last year and am including it on my application. I used it as my answer to the short answer question asking why I was applying to the school I am (Stern). I also put it as my most important extracurricular activity because I think it's important to show them that I have the entrepreneurial spirit. You should definitely include your businesses.
