The adcom said they would give out some decisions before christmas but that interivews take place until the end of the round.


When is the end of Round 1 exactly? Thanks.

What did you guys think of the school if you visited?


I really liked the school. The buildings and facilities get a bad reputation, but I thought they were good. I liked the cozy feel.

After getting dinged from Cornell, I'm hoping Yale comes through for me.

Can somebody copy the discussion transcript?

My work blocks all of these discussions and the transcripts get posted 1-2 weeks later. I'd rather read it on Dec. 12.


Thanks.

How long has Yale offered the MBA degree?

When I visited, the adcomm mentioned that they only offered it for 10 years, but B week says since 1976.

They offered a masters in management before the true "MBA".

This past weekend I visited Wharton on Sunday and Yale on Monday. I don't really have any intention of applying to Wharton, but it was a beautiful school in my opinion. Prior to visiting Yale, it was my number one choice by leaps and bounds. I love the curriculum, I love what they are about, and I felt like I could find my niche there (I work in land development, and want to focus on sustainable land development), and maybe I'll be the only one to admit it, but the Yale brand was a great cherry on top. After visiting the school, I was hit with a well needed dose of reality. Yes, this is an ivy league with the second largest endowment in the country, but I will be attending their business school which is only 30 years old, and is situated in a small out dated building. I didn't have too much interaction with the students, but they seemed far more intellectual and academically minded than those I met at the diversity weekend at Duke, did anyone else notice that? Don't get me wrong, I think this is phenominal attribute in and outside the classroom...but do people ever let loose? I mean...this is actually kind of important if you only have 200 people in your class.

All in all I thought the school was great, and I would still consider it my #1 choice, but it has reaffirmed the importance of visitng a school.

Yeah, if you saw my post above, you'll see that I did like the buildings and campus. Perception is everything in a brand, and Yale has that with people not familiar with B Schools. And employers familiar with B Schools seem to like the school (as represented in the recruiting). The "run-down" buildings add to the atmosphere of the tight-knit community. The adcomm office looks just like a house... How more cozy can you get than that?

The students did seem "less edgy"... just like cookie cutter b school students. I interviewed 2 weeks ago, so hopefully I'll get that magical call next week (assuming of course that they do call admits the week before christmas break)

Do you guys know anything about the recommendation for Yale? Once you put in your recommenders email adress, do they send them a request to write a letter...or to answer grid questions? Does anyone know?

I know that Yale does not send you a follow-up email to let you know that your recommender has submited their recommendation - kind of annoying since you have to continuously check the website to see if the rec. has been submitted.

Rumor on BW is that they will begin releasing early decisions tomorrow for those who intereviewed in Nov, but that they have only reviewed half the applications to date...they will be inviting until the deadline.

I am guessing R2? Followup with the recommender if you are unsure.

So tomorrow could be the day!

I bet there will be at least somebody who posts on here that they got an admit. At least a lurker will pop up and share the good news.

If you do get the call, make sure to let us know.
