NYU STERN "transfer"

<p>Anyone here from NYU Stern Adcoms?</p>

<p>No, but then again I already know they will reject me.</p>

<p>There was someone a while back who had gotten in. It was around the time I heard from CAS... like the 14th or so.</p>

<p>Has anyone been denied admissions to NYU Stern as a transfer?</p>

<p>i was admitted to stern last wednesday/thursday by mail, large envelope</p>

<p>Congrats! I would appreciate it if you can tell me your stats.</p>

<p>3.85, 750 verbal 740 math, more extra-curriculars than almost anyone i've seen, i am in my second year in a community college, exceeded maximum unit allowance almost every quarter (very heavy courseload), </p>

<p>would rather not share more info than that. but you can pm me if you want more info</p>

<p>In another thread, someone said that they just received a rejection letter from Stern today.</p>

<p>I read it, he had pretty good stats. I am really confused and scared at the same time.</p>

<p>I am scared, too. I think I will be rejected. Maybe, I will receive my letter on Monday. I have awful stats, and I received a C in my Calc II class.</p>

<p>I hear NYU puts a lot of emphasis on to essays...It's a very artistic school, and they like to judge you by your creativity. Also, I hear they place emphasis on test scores as well (but this was mainly for first years...I don't know if it applies to transfers)</p>

<p>That does not make me feel better. I am a terrible essay writer. Half my work is incoherent, and the other half is trite and redundant. I wish I could write better. Then all my applications would have been better...</p>

<p>hi there,</p>

<p>I applied to NYU stern too. I am also international~</p>

<p>It is kinda scary to see people getting accepted so early, but congrats to anon08!</p>

<p>I ain't sure if my essay was good, I would say it's OK, not outstanding though~</p>

<p>I received my acceptance package in the mail today! :) I must say, it is the most well written acceptance letter I have received.</p>

<p>Could you post what your stats are?</p>

<p>What did it say? Did you apply as a transfer? What are your stats?</p>

<p>Yeah, I applied as a transfer. My stats are:</p>

<p>University of Miami
4.0 GPA (3.8-4.0 on midsemester report) with difficult classes
Some athletic extracurriculars... nothing too big
Took economics at U of Penn over the summer (A)</p>

1340 SAT (680 Writing, 690 Math IC, 690 US History)
5 AP Calc AB, 5 AP Statistics, 4 AP US History, 3 US Government
3.56 uw GPA w/ hardest courseload
300-400 hours of community service</p>

<p>-Very good recommendations (one extra from a former Stern student that went on to be one of the top WS traders... and later my HS english teacher, the other 2 from college profs)
-What I think was a good essay - talked about how my extracurrics have led me to be competitive and have made me enjoy an environment like NYU offers , etc.</p>

<p>I was pretty suprised to get accepted, because I didn't think I had anything too extraordinary like many other applicants I saw apply to Stern as freshman.</p>

<p>Congratulations, dpinmiami!</p>

<p>Congrats DP!</p>

<p>Out of curiosity, was the athletics thing varsity, club, or intramural?</p>

<p>Actually, it was figure skating (not related to school). I have been doing it since 1996 and sent them a very short video (3 minutes) of me skating and talking about my skating.</p>

<p>Toph - I heard you got accepted to CAS - CONGRATS to you too!</p>
