Didn't see one posted yet, and with so many new people getting admits this week, hopefully this thread can grow.

Is everyone planning on going to the Bulldog days later this month?

I'll be at the welcome weekend (bulldog days). I've already decided that I am definitely going to Yale. Anyone else decided yet?

Hey guys. I'm planning to go to Bulldog Days - I wasn't able to attend the Winter Welcome last month. I'm also definitely going to attend Yale SOM. Anyone start looking into housing yet? I lived in Hamden for a year (it's a small town on the north side of New Haven), and I'm probably going to either go back there or try to get an apartment in Branford. I lived close enough to New Haven for long enough to know that it's not really my thing. (Edited to add: I'm actually going to take a harder look at the East Rock Area. I could probably make that work.)

i've only been to new haven briefly (during a visit to the school, and in passing a few times when i've gone to CT). what's wrong with it in your view?

Did someone mention to you that you are a very .... very ..... wise person? :wink:

No....it has nothing to do with the fact that you chose to attend YSOM this fall.....nothing to do with that at all......

Also, there's info session kinda thing scheduled during the admitted student weekend for housing options around downtown New Haven. Don't worry about anything. You guys will get plenty of info on pretty much anything that's on your mind.

Also, personally I recommend every new student to look for a place near the campus. I would say it would be ideal for one to live within 15 minute walking distance from the campus. Not every current student is doing this but I personally know few that suffered greatly because they lived a bit far out. There are many nights of happy hours and other social activities, group meetings, networking events, etc and it helps a lot when you can just walk few blocks home late at night (especially when it's way past midnight and you are intoxicated). Also, it is so much easier to live by the campus when there's blizzard and etc.

I'm admitted and will be attending Bulldog Days. It will be my first time on campus, so really looking forward to it.

ALTHOUGH, I am kind of annoyed it was scheduled on the same weekend as UVA's Foxfields event.

There's nothing wrong with New Haven, some people really like it. I think most of the areas in New Haven that are recommended on the Yale admitted student website would be great if you don't mind living in an urban environment. Nink makes some good points about the benefits of being close to campus, but since I'm married if I regularly come home late at night intoxicated... I might not be for long :)

For those of you admitted in R2, did you get the "Official Status Email"? When I got my call the admissions officer said I would get the email yesterday afternoon, as does his follow up email, but I haven't received anything and my status has not changed when I sign in.

Not a big deal, but I am curious, as I am dying to check out the admitted students page, etc.!

Also, I have another school with a deposit deadline tomorrow, so it would be helpful to have as much info as possible asap!

Yes. I was going to ask the same thing. I was suppose to get the official email and status update online yesterday, but didn't get it. I am waiting for it because I don't want to announce it to my company until I get the official thing. Anyone else?

Hopefully I will be able to attend bulldog days. However, I have already decided that I will be attending SOM in the fall. Has anyone looked at the new building going up at 360 State Street (State and Chapel). It is more expensive than most other housing options, but it also looks great. Let me know if you would be interested in sharing a two bedroom in the building...

Once you get the login for the YSOM portal, you'll be able to go to the Bulldog Days page. The event starts Fri April 23rd with an optional Financial Aid workshop at 10 AM. The official registration is 11 AM. There are various events scheduled for that Friday, with some being optional. The events continue Saturday April 24th, and the official end of the event is Saturday at 5:30 PM.

I will be attending Yale in the fall. I was a R1 admit and attended Winter Welcome, so will probably pass on Bulldog Days (the information is redundant). I am probably going to look into living around East Rock, seems to be where most SOM students live.

Did any R1 admits get a notification from Yale that they passed the background check? I got an email from Kroll that said they successfully verified my application and submitted the results, but I've heard nothing from Yale.

Thanks for setting up this thread. As others have mentioned, its nice to have various channels in which to communicate.

I'm a Round 1 admit and will be matriculating at Yale. Still on the fence about Bulldog Days...I went to Winter Welcome and not sure if the club fair and career seminar is worth it (most of the other information will be repeated I think).

Looking forward to meeting everyone soon!

Also, from what I've seen, I have not heard of anyone getting any scholarships at Yale yet...anyone can speak to the contrary? Are they waiting for Rd 2 decisions to be completed?
