Just submitted for R2 one minute ago...

But My appp reads "awaiting" for GMAT, TOEFL, etc...
DO I have to send official scores before i'm admitted?


've just got confirmation from adcoms. they will not begin to review your application until they have received official scores sent directly to them. So send them asap! I am also stuck with my TOEFL now. Hope ETS will deliver it on time. Hik.

The website says:

Invitations to interview are sent via email throughout the round in which you apply. Although we try to extend invitations as early as possible, they may be extended as late as the admissions decision deadline. The timing of your interview invitation has no bearing on the outcome of your application.

I hope that is right.. I have been waiting for 2 months now!

Does this means that you were able to apply without an official toefl score?
I sent my toefl and gmat score today. I had less than 100 on toefl, don't know if they will consier my app anyway.
By the way, is MIT sloan the only MBA that does not require toefl? (as long as you can score more than 35 on verbal part of gmat)


Well, I guess so. you self report your scores during the online application- I ordered my scores for them on 6th Jan, they have received my gmat official score but my status says they are still waiting for toefl score.
as for other schools- I think you should check each of them separately because some does not ask for toefl if you attended a college where english is the medium of instruction. hope this helps

I just want to give you a status update! I applied to Yale R2 and received an interview invite this morning. I submitted my application on January 4 and my last recommender submitted her recommendation on January 6. I live an LA and have gone to Yale to visit. I'm slightly grumbling about Yale's request for applicants to go to campus for the interview. Part of me wants to ask them let me interview with someone local. I'll probably end up making the trek to New Haven, though. All the best to all R2 applicants!


hi - you should read thru nink's post here: calling-all-fall-2010-yale-som-applicants-80450-380.html#p666069

i'd imagine if you've already visited the campus before, they might be more lenient in the on-campus interview policy. this is just my guess though

here is a thread that talks about some of the differences between BW and this site: why-is-everyone-here-so-nice-83818.html

to sum up though, BW is an unmoderated forum. people get into petty arguments about school rankings, jobs, dubai.. pretty much anything. no one is there to steer discussions in the right direction, or to delete blatantly racist, sexist or otherwise unnecessary posts.

i feel that here on GC, we do a good job of weeding out trolls, and also invite and encourage open dialog about b-school applications and b-school life.

as far as information, i would take any information you read on the web with a grain of salt - regardless of whether it comes from GC, BW, or anywhere. most of us here are either students or applicants. we try and post factual information when we have it, and other times give opinions based on our observations. i think one of the flaws with BW is that opinion is oftentimes (i'd go as far as saying "regularly") passed on as fact, whereas here we tend to differentiate the two.

i'd invite you to continue browsing through gmatclub and contribute whenever you can. good luck on all of your apps

Just got through my class visit and interview today and thought i'd share my experience on the interview. As others have noted it was with a 2nd year student and it was very conversational. We started with some small talk then went through my resume. My interviewer seemed genuinely interested in my current job as software engineer working on unmanned spy planes so we spent a good bit of time on that topic. He asked about my leadership. Then he asked where I pictured myself 5 and 10 years out. Then he asked if I had anything else that I would like the admissions committee to know about me. then we talked about why yale som is such a great school. By then time was up. All in interview lasted 35 min and I thought it went well. There were definitely no hard questions it was very low pressure. Now just have to sit back and wait till decision day.... I asked if they were planning on releasing decisions before the final decision date but I got the we might release some early but don't count on it reply.

Wanted to share my interview experience on campus last week, it was very pleasant, I had visited the school earlier this month, so just went straight for the interview after a lunch with student tour guides and other applicants. Interviewed with a second year student in my field (not sure if the assignment was on purpose), very conversational, walking through the resume starting from high school to college to each internship to my current job, to my career goals and how it relates to SOM. He said we had up to 45 minutes, the last 15 min for questions.

Good luck to everyone!

I applied through the Consortium, so did not require an additional interview. Thank for the kinds words!


if you don't mind me asking, i see that you also applied to Stern (via Consortium?) Since fellowship decisions are supposed to be released by next Friday, does that mean you expect to get final decisions on other Consortium schools by then?

My best friend is applying via the consortium and we are both confused by the final decision dates..I am not a consortium applicant but have already done my R2 interview for Yale and Stern and I don't expect to hear back for several weeks. My friend, on the other hand, has not yet been invited... I'm wondering if that means she won't get in =( Or if that just means she probably won't get the fellowship to either of those schools..


I'll jump in since I'm also a Consortium applicant. Most likely, it means that Yale and Stern are not going to offer the fellowship (could've been for several reasons). But they might have still liked her enough to wait on making a decision depending on the yield of their fellowship offers (mid-March). Since the time frame to accept the fellowship is early April, they both could still throw out the acceptance/invite before their respective deadlines.

For Yale at least, if you were dinged outright, you should've heard yesterday. Hope this helps and is somewhere close to being accurate for your friends sake.


Which reminds me...For the roll call, Dinged for Yale on 2/26. :-)

I had my interview today via Skype.

I think my call went very well. I spoke with an assistant director in the admissisons for 40 mins in a video call. He started with asking why I chose my undergrad, asked about my work experience and why an mba (and why now). All these questions are quite basic and something everybody should be prepared for in a call like this. In the latter part of the call he asked more direct about why Yale and what my plans are after graduation. In the end he asked if I wanted to tell him anything that he had not asked about and I asked before we concluded if there was anything in my understanding of Yale and what I wanted to get out of a Yale SOM MBA that was incorrect or misunderstood.

The call was very friendly and he was very happy with my knowledge of the school. He said that he was very happy with this and would advocate on my behalf for the committee - they might always say this but it felt right....

I kind of would be surprised if I would get a ding after this - but that might be based on the good weather today and how generally happy I am these days :)

Best of luck to all of you!

Sahana, there are several possible reasons why someone could be admitted to a "top 5" school such as Kellogg and dinged from a "top 15" (maybe top 10?) school such as Yale SOM....

1.) Great fit at the higher ranked school & poor fit at the lower ranked school.
2.) Too many applicants with your profile already admitted to such a small class at the lower ranked school. You listed Social Enterprise as your concentration. I'll bet that Yale, which is great for non-profits, received many applications from people with that particular background. As far as I know it has the smallest class out of all top 15 schools.
3.) Far superior performance on the essays and the interview for the higher ranked school. (I'm pretty sure this is why I was admitted to Kellogg and dinged at Tuck :) )

I actually applied to Yale in R3 but withdrew after learning of my Kellogg admit.

Got an email (she said she had called before but I didn't see a missed call). She didn't mention any scholarship info though. Are we supposed to find that out later?

I'm in too!!!! I'm very excited, as I really liked Yale!

Also no word on scholarships/aid, which is unfortunate, as I have to make a decision about another school in the next couple of days.

Best of luck to everyone else!
