Ding! (NYU Style)

The Admissions Committee has completed its review of your application to the NYU Stern MBA program. After careful consideration, we are unable to offer you admission.

While the Committee recognizes the high aspirations and unique qualities of all of our applicants, we are in the difficult position of being able to offer admission to only a small percentage of the many individuals who apply to our program. Our decisions are based on a holistic process in which we evaluate each applicant’s academic profile, professional achievements, and personal characteristics.

We appreciate your interest in NYU Stern and regret that we are unable to offer you a place in the class. You have our best wishes for your future success.

Sincerely,

NYU Stern MBA Admissions

That pretty much says it all right there….NYU protecting the basket, and swatting me from the applicant pool like Dikembe Mutumbo. I sure hope this doesn’t turn out like an experience I had in college when I was trying to “juggle” three women at the same time and it all blew up in my face, ending up with me all by myself. The slogan started as, “and then there were three!” and ended with the epic, “and then there were none!” All the eggs are in the Cornell basket now, which is exciting, but nerve-racking as well. If I don’t get into Cornell it will be crushing, but I guess that is how the cookie crumbles. No time to dwell on the past….I am either going to Johnson or not going to B-School at all next year. (A sobering possibility). I am really happy for all those people who got interviews, like my boy xlick, and I hope you guys and gals do great. Stern is obviously not the place for me, but I hope it is the place for the rest of you. Nothing to do now, but wait, ugh. FML!
