Isser Gallogly, Associate Dean, MBA Admissions and Program Innovation, discusses Stern's new "EQ Endorsement" in the application process for prospective MBA students
— August 2, 2017
Excerpt from The Wall Street Journal -- "Applicants can share materials like drafts of a personal statement or a copy of their résumé, but ultimately a letter of recommendation 'should be the words of the recommender,' said Isser Gallogly, associate dean of M.B.A. admissions at Stern. In addition to the two recommendations Stern requires, it now has applicants ask a friend or colleague to write a 250-word statement highlighting traits like empathy and self-awareness. Mr. Gallogly said a friend’s endorsement gives admissions officers insight they might not get from professors or managers."
