After a lot of thought, I am moving my app to R2. At the very least, I need a higher GMAT. Retaking the exam hopefully by Oct 15th.

I'm likely doing the same (minus the GMAT retake). The R1 deadline is very early and R2 seems to be just fine for Yale.


Fine decisions on your part if you don't think your application is ready.

i think i might apply via consortium, but im a bit confused about how the process would work. on the consortium website, it says the application cycle is closed; it says it will reopen in 'late summer'... but isnt that too late for fall 2010?

first post here
so excited
Working on eassys ,
I am applying Silver Scholar (round 1), just heard that Yale takes 6- 10 Silver Scholar each year and no more than one Chinese.
anyone knows how many silver scholar applicants every year?

my profile: senior majoring finance in Eastern Michigan Uni, transferred from an unknow Uni in China.
GPA in Eastern 3.9 so far( but I just have 10 courses in Eastern's transcript so far)
GPA in ex-University about 3.5 but Easetern is supposed to give me official degree, so I am not sure which GPA Yale will consider....
GMAT 750
Nationality: China I heard top schools always require a higher GMAT cos they think Chinese should be good at standardlized test.

Silver Scholar candidates are judged slightly different from regular applicants because they are admitted right out of undergrad. If you look at last year's YSOM thread, there were couple of Silver Scholar admits. Maybe you can compare your stats to their stats.

Also, every applicant should utilize the YSOM applicant forum:
http://som-talks.som.yale.edu/forums/

Any question you have, you will get the info directly from the admissions office and plus, you will get to read the same questions you might have from fellow applicants.

Hi!

Currently applying for Silver Scholars - I have a quick question regarding the apps. I tried using the Yale SOM Admissions Forum but had problems after registration so trying my luck here.

Since I'm a Silver Scholar I do not have full time working experience but have done lots of internships. Obviously I would like to put them into my application.

Now, among the sections of the application there is "Work Experience" and "Activities"

"Work Experience" instructs to only put in "full-time, post-baccalaureate employers", so I am assuming no internships (that were also during college) here. Correct?

"Activities" instructs to put "meaningful activites from college to to date". Does this mean activities (such as internships) during college go in here as well?
Was not quite sure with the wording.

Thanks in advance!

Between the two, I would list your internship experiences under Work Experience. Internship exp is not activities.

I wouldn't mention scholarships unless it was a big, named scholarship. I mean every undergrad gets little scholarship here and there during his or her undergrad years.


Usually, one would mention it on his or her resume (Fulbright Scholar, etc). If you can't sqeeze it in on your 1 pg resume, why not just use the copy and paste option instead and squeeze it in there. It can't be more than one line.

Guys, how should one refer to Yale SOM in the essays? Is simply "Yale" OK, or should it be YSOM, or just SOM instead? A little confused now, because HBS is just HBS and it's pretty clear, but with SOM - not so much :)?

I don't think this is big deal but students here refer to the school as YSOM, or Yale, depending on our preference. :-D

Re: Calling All Fall 2010 Yale SOM Applicants [#permalink] New post 08 Oct 2009, 05:59
Hi!, Nink,

Appreciate your inputs on this thread. Wanted to reach out to you to evaluate my profile for YSOM:

* 4+ years of work experience: 1 yr in boutique consulting, 3 yr in a top 3 consulting, few months in a marketing strategy role at a Fortune 500 firm

* Undergrad & Grad: in Engineering, from top 3 schools. Graduated at top of class at both. Decent involvement in extra-curriculars

* GMAT: 700 (Q48, V38)

* Long & short term goals: Want to start a services firm based on a very new business model (have flushed out the details but can't provide them here for obvious reasons). In short term I'd like to go back to consulting for 2-3 years to get rid of student loans and to make some additional industry contacts.

Questions:

* Based on this limited information, do you think I have a good fit for SOM?
* Interested in YSOM because in some of the other threads I read that SOM has a strong strategy & entrepreneurship focus (in addition to finance, of course). Is that true? Or does YSOM primarily focus on candidates interested in banking/PE/VC post-mba?
* Can you kindly provide some statistics on:
(i) % of SOM graduates that accepted an offer from a top 3 consulting firm (overall consulting percentage is available in employment report but not sure what kind of firms are represented in that)
(ii) % of SOM graduates that started their own firm at graduation (might be tough to track)

Thanks so much for your feedback and inputs. Would appreciate blunt answers ;) (better to know the hard reality)
