After making no changes to its application essay questions last year from the year before, New York University’s (NYU’s) Stern School of Business has this season made a rather drastic overhaul to its prompts. Some candidates may be pleased to see the school’s longstanding “personal expression” creative essay go away, but they will still need to rely on their imaginative side to give the admissions committee what it wants for its new “Pick 6”prompt. One big application change has also precipitated the addition of a totally new—though not overly intimidating, we hope—essay: applicants may use a single application to apply to multiple MBA programs at the school (Full-time, Tech, Fashion and Luxury, Part-time), so NYU Stern asks candidates to specify their top choice(s) and explain the reasoning behind their selection.

Manhattan GMAT is very proud to announce its first business school admissions officer panels of the season. We often partner with top business programs to give our students the inside track on what’s on the minds of school administrators even as many students are starting to work on their application essays.
In our Chicago center, on Thursday evening, September 24th, we will be joined by admissions officers from Kellogg, Chicago Booth, and Columbia Business School. The moderator will be our own Chris Brusznicki, himself a Kellogg alum (though he promises to be impartial). The admissions officers will present and then take questions from attendees. Click here to sign-up – attendance is free but space is limited.
The following week we will have an additional panel here at our New York center on Thursday evening, October 1st. Admissions officers from Columbia, NYU Stern, and Kellogg will each be in attendance to convey their thoughts and take questions. Click here to sign-up in order to attend. Chris Ryan will be moderating the New York panel.
If you can’t make it to either of these panels, we will be hosting other seminars later in the season, including online events with admissions consultants and others. You can also sign up for our free events mailing list to stay informed of future events.
If you’re in Chicago or New York, we’ll see you soon!
