Hi All,
Not sure if this is the right thread - if someone's got a better one for me to look for please direct. But I've been following (and sharing) in the wait anxiety for Yale so I thought I'd post here...

Is it considered inappropriate to inquire about the status of an application (eg, Yale R2) and to mention that we are facing the prospect of placing deposits at other schools while we wait to hear about potential interviews/dings? My instinct is not to bother the admissions staff who probably have their work cut out for them right now, but some of my friends think it is worth throwing out to them and may prompt an interview invitation or faster review (or in worst case, a reply that they just can't project my timeline)

Alternatively, what do people think about contacting a school you've been admitted to and asking for more time before being forced to pay the deposit or decline? I'd like to keep as many options open as possible but the deposits will add up even faster than the application deposits, school visits, and materials combined...

Yale SOM should stop sending out e-mails titled, "Inside the Admissions Interview." :shock:

My hope-o-meter started ringing out loud, then the reality set in. :evil:


yah, I also received this email ....
by the way, there is no status update online. how do know about your status for Yale? just have to wait for the interview/ding email?

this really too long....


I don't, and I liked to know my odds, even if it is < 1. For Yale, I have no clue as to where I stand. They should at least give us some kind of an update, like these many invites have gone out, these many more would go out by such and such date..

Even if it is a semi-ding, I know it & I can move on...this wait is just stressful.

Congrats on your interview invite. I am not aware of any bschool that requires you to bring a copy of official transcript for an interview. (YSOM is not an exception) You only need to provide official copy of the transcript once you are admitted and you intend to enroll.

journey -- no need to bring an official transcript. The interviewer also had his own copy of my resume.

I had mine about two weeks ago, but on the status page online it still doesn't have that I completed it. Should I call up the admissions office or is this normal?

If I interview with an alumnus, and assume he submits the interview reports within 2-3 days, how long it usually takes the adcom to make a final admission decision? Any one had similar experience? Just curious and can't wait to hear the result... :)

The Consortium for Graduate Study in Management is an organization dedicated to advancing the placement of under represented minorities in the ranks of management. Applicants who meet the profile (someone who in the past has shown the desire to advance the organization's mission, whether they are URM or not) can apply to various member schools using one common application.

During the application, applicants are required to complete 2 core essays that get sent to every school being applied to. Each individual school also requires at least one separate school-specific essay.

All applicants are required to complete one "generic" CGSM interview with either an adcom at a school or an alum. Afterward, specific schools may require an additional interview; YSOM does not require an additional interview, however.

More information can be found on the website (http://www.cgsm.org) or in this year's Consortium thread: calling-all-fall-2010-consortium-applicants-merged-87799.html

do any R2 applicants who have already interviewed have any news on when we may be hearing back about final decisions? i understand that dings/wL may be released on the final date of 4/2, but in the past SOM has released admits a little early in sporadic batches. thanks.

I interviewed 2/17 and haven't heard back (my online status for interview hasn't been updated yet either). Maybe that's a ding/waitlist?

No. SOM's online application system is elegant, but the status it displays is meaningless. My status didn't change until the admit.

To everyone else, I swear you really don't want decisions to come out until decision day. It may feel like it's been a long time since you submitted or interviewed, but it will feel much, much worse if decisions start to trickle out and you've heard nothing. No one can assume they'll be one of the lucky few to hear early, especially since they're still figuring out scholarships, so the strongest applicants won't hear until that's sorted out.

Thanks for the advice orgninja -- it's hard not to regress to conspiracy theory when you've got all the time in the world :) I'm actually relatively calm / not worried (a little bit of cockiness, a lot of apathy).

I see you've got a Yale admit (along with many other schools). Have you decided on Yale?
