longatum,

can you post a debrief of your interview? E.g. questions asked, tone of the interview, etc?

Thanks!

Has anyone heard anything re: decision for R2? I interviewed on the 24 at Yale and had a really good time. Loved the school and the people there and my interviewer, a really friendly guy, wrote a (personalized with details from the interview) thank-you note to me before I could write him. I wrote back, but haven't heard from anything from them since.

Now that I think about it... I was really hoping that the thank-you note was a personal touch that the interviewer did only to someone he liked, not as a procedural thing... Is that the case? or did everyone who interviewed there get a similar note?

I'm a Vietnamese applicant. 27 yr old. GMAT: 750. GPA: subpar from top liberal arts college. WE: 2.5 yrs in financial services/ibanking (1 yr in no-name boutique in NYC and the rest in Hanoi, Vietnam) at matriculation.

Hey nervousgmat,

I see that you received your invite in late Dec... and you still haven't had your interview?

Anyhow, the interview I had was pretty straightforward. Mostly resume-based. The interviewer (a 2nd-year student) asked me to walk him through it, then focused on the points that he found interesting. The only non-resume question that I can remember is "How would your manager describe you"... and I think my answer to that sucked, mehehe.

The interview was really friendly. We joked and laughed a lot in the beginning before getting to the serious stuff and he managed to add a lot to my fondness of the school although the interview lasted only 30mins.

I think all interviews will be conducted more or less as such (resumed-based). Several guys who interviewed the same day with me had similar experiences. And interviews don't go much beyond half an hour. You are questioned for some 20-25mins then you can question them.

Hope this helps and best of luck.

longatum, I submitted my application at the end of December. My invite came in some time at mid-end January. I had to reschedule my interview due to work-related conflicts.
Thank you for the debrief. It was very helpful.

Don't give up hope, guys! There is plenty of time until decisions come out: more than 1.5 months!!!
Yale extended interview invites up until the decisions deadline in the 1st round.

Ok,

I just got invited to an interview at Yale on the 12th of February. I submitted my app in Dec so all of you worried about the invites, they actually do extend invites this late!

I was certain I would not be invited. Good news eh?

That's great, defenestrate! Congrats~!
Have you scheduled your interview yet?
Maybe you could share with people still waiting for their invites how many slots were available to interview on-campus when you scheduled yours.

a FULBRIGHT SCHOLAR :shock: , mate that alone is worth its weight in gold. These ad-coms love prestigious awards. A friend of mine who's also a fulbright scholar is in HBS at the moment.

If I were to tell you all the schools that have already dinged me then you might not agree that the fulbright is worth its weight in gold!

I wish that were so, but not likely.

I had my interview today. My interviewer was a 2nd year student who was very cordial and friendly. Her background was in education and after graduation she wanted to continue working in non-profit sector.

Questions asked: nothing unusual. The list of questions is below:

1) Why did you make a switch from majoring Linguistics to majoring in Finance
2) What extra-curricular activities did you participate in during college
3) Walk me through your resume and explain what influenced your career switches
4) What are you are most proud of and why
5) If I had my best friend sitting here, how would she describe me
6) Why MBA? Why now? What attracts you to SOM
7) What clubs are you going to participate in and how would you contribute to Yale SOM
8) What do you like to do outside of work
9) What do you like about your job the most
10) How did your responsibilities change with your promotion
11) Any questions you have for me

That's it. I think the interview went well :-)
