I had not officially included Yale on the list of schools I was applying to. However, I applied for the event 15mins before the deadline. It will be a great opportunity to explore Yale for free to determine if it will be a fit.

Thanks to GMATClub again for keeping me in the loop!

Anyone, except me, waiting for the invite to "Explore Diversity at Yale"?


I got an email yesterday saying they will send the invitations on 10/25...I wonder if they will release any decisions before the event.


The email I got yesterday says 'Invitations to attend the event will be sent via email by 5pm on Monday, October 22.'

Decisions... I am not sure because you do not have to have applied to Yale in order to take part. I suppose it is a way for Yale to attract applicants they would like to apply, but the even itself is not meant to improve one's chances of admission.


It would be hard to attend or even pointless with a denial letter.

I guess the thing to do is not to set your expectations too high. After all, lots of people visit schools they like, and ... get dinged.

I think if you're invited, be sure to play that card hard in your essays.

I am so worried about the short essay I submitted with my app to ED@Yale. I have just read it, and it is just wrong.

When I submitted it, I was quite happy with what I had written.

Do you ever get this feeling about your essays? Or is it just me who gets these mood swings?

it is unfortunate that yale hardly lets one write much in the essays...so few questions and such stringent word limits!

Submitted for R1 today....but it still says it's waiting on my GMAT scores.....yet I had them sent when I took the exam on 8/18, I even checked the GMAT site and it says they sent them on 8/20. Anyone else have this problem?

I e-mailed them, we'll see what they say.

i didnt apply to yale, but from another application i learned that scores arent "received" until your app is processed, even if you sent in the scores months ago. im guessing nobody was processing apps during the weekend.

That's probably the case, but I saw that and freaked out since I over analyze everything having to do with apps, as most of us are at this point probably, haha.

I have not been extended the invitation. I wonder what the reason was: my essay, my CV, both or the technical issues like visas, international airfare, etc. Nevertheless, it feels like a ding.

Are you applying in R1?

I really don't think they manage the applicant list with the list who applied to explore diversity.

No, R2 because of TOEFL trouble -- (no seats in China until the end of January).

Yes, they still said to "please be aware that this decision is not necessarily predictive of your future candidacy to the Yale School of Management. We encourage you to keep Yale in your plans as you pursue your MBA plans"

I will give it a try, anyway.

This gives no indication of acceptance. I will have my application submitted tomorrow anyway so I can't include the trip in my essays. Who knows, I may get dinged before I go. Stay positive and maybe someone won't be able to attend and you will get the invite.

Yes, I have a valid B1/B2 visa, but I suppose Yale SOM might have automatically assumed that it was not the case. I guess, I should have mentioned it somewhere on my application (where?) or sent them an email about this. And then again, any or all parts of my application might have been weak.

I hope you get accepted!

And I am staying positive, it is not the end of the world! I am going to visit Yale in November.

Thanks for the words of support, and keep us posted on how things go in New Haven.

Does your status say your GMAT scores have been received, or that they're still waiting on them?
