Nink -- I just learned all students are issued a laptop?!? I'm sure I end up paying for it somehow, but still... nice. What was your class issued (and the class previous)?


We received Dell Latitude E6400, preconfigured with our Yale SOM image. Specs: 3GB Memory, 160GB Harddrive, web camera, bluetooth, etc.

Technically, it's free but it isn't since the cost of the laptop is already embedded in our tuition.

Pook:

I have been waitlisted since R1 and haven't heard anything.


The Yale laptops are spiffy... I really like the image they have on the cover.

I just checked my online status on Yale SOM site. It says "interview completed". I am assuming this is normal, but i have read posts saying that even you complete the interview, your status won't be updated. Um...not sure if this means anything.


Ok, i admit. I am super nervous!!! Friday seems so far away.

nink, please include me in the roll call as well. I've been surfing this site for a while and might as well throw my hat in the ring.

27 / M / 750 / 3.5 / 2 years of SI consulting, 3 years of finance/business development at consulting firm

Invited on 1/22, interviewed on 2/18

Nothing yet from H/S, waitlisted at Tuck. High hopes for Yale! I love the program and think it's got good momentum.

Best luck to all!

agree with the friday seems so far away.. going to be a long week and the wait's only going to get worse once calls start going out whenever they do this week. atleast there's CL football to keep me from refreshing this page incessantly on tuesday and wednesday.

interviewed a long time ago but my status still doesnt have the tick mark next to interview completed. i know it doesnt really mean anything (or atleast not to us since we dont have the school's secret code for what diff statuses mean :lol: ).

She didn't mention any scholorship information to me either. I was going to ask, but thought that it is best to wait, plus i was in my office and wasn't very convinient to talk. did anyone get scholorship information?

I was wondering about the money question too - the voicemail I got didn't say anything about scholarships or financial aid. Any idea where/when we get that info?

Re: Calling All Fall 2010 Yale SOM Applicants [#permalink] New post 30 Mar 2010, 09:23
hi everyone,

i just called the admissions office (bc i had missed their call) and they said if you were receiving a merit based scholarship, that they would have told you during the phone call. So if you haven't heard, most prob means you didn't get anything.

trendsetter - i have the exact same problem as you: no money at Yale, but $$ at Kellogg. Honestly for me, it's a no brainer. $$ is a big factor. Also, although my interest is in social enterprise and Yale is #1 for it, Kellogg has a really great program too, so I think I'll still be able to accomplish what I want there. Gluck with your decision!

I actually asked her when I got the call, she said something like "we cannot offer you scholarships at this time, but scholarship opportunities may come up".

I had the same experience as Rainforest. I called back to ask about scholarships and she said "not at this time, but we will be making more decisions at the end of April". (Also, I'm in the US and my last name is P.)

Don't get too nervous (although that is pretty much impossible). Good luck to you and everyone else still waiting! :-D

nink,

Out of experience, do you know if YSOM ever give $$$ with the admit call?
I have read the few posts before (thanks mbasc2010!), but I'm not sure what to make of it since the 1st post (Roll Call) doesn't show anyone with $.

Thanks for any insight you may have.
