Wondering the same thing, although I will buy a new one. I don’t have a laptop besides work right now and if I will have one for personal use, I definitely want it to be a macbook.
How much of excel will we need anyways?

Not a problem. Many have MacBooks, and even if there are differences in some programs like Excel, the professors will know about them and help you work through them - you're definitely not the only one who is bringing a MacBook.

Any other interview advice for ADHDers is much appreciated too!

Enrolled in Stern for a few weeks.
The number of the alumni and current students that go to top consulting firms FT& summer intern are countless even for a small class size.
Stern is way more than a finance school. Given its location, do you want to spend your 2 years in a rural area or heart of Manhattan? Location is almost everything for business school. (I have a friend in Cornell that frequently travels about 5 hours to NYC for events.)
