Nink - are you sure we'll be getting a standard laptop upon going to orientation? I was actually looking forward to getting a new laptop of my choice. That really blows. I was talking to one of the adcoms during the admit weekend and he said he wasn't sure about whether the standard laptop was for this year or next.



That's what they told me the last time I asked. I am sure they will update us before the orientation in August.
However, I already bought me a lighter, more mobile laptop regardless of Yale laptop. I can't carry a laptop that's more than 4 lbs around all day long.



Agreed I was planning on selling my current laptop and getting one of the light sony vio's. If Yale "gives" us a laptop, I'll sell it and put it towards the SP laptop fund. :wink:

I was there with my fiancee.
I took a fellow Gclub member's advice and decided to stay anonymous. :-D
I didn't ask anyone about GMATClub etc etc. :twisted:

I actually did the same thing and did not bring up gmatclub, overall I was very impressed with the incoming class, and profs. I only wish Yale had better facilities

i actually liked the cozy environment of New Haven and gothic buildings. I attended a school in NYC for undergrad and I can appreciate a REAL college campus and setting.

New facilities probably won't be completed until after our class graduates.
It sucks but I am not going to SOM for nice buildings :wink:

I can't justify spending more money for another laptop when I'm already going into so much debt for bschool! lol! The tuition does seem high this year though, so perhaps the extra cost is for the laptop.

Long story but it looks like I'll be able to get a decent discount on sony products. In regard to the TT I'm worried that both the 11.1 inch screen and the HD will be too small. I hope I'll be able to sell the Yale laptop for something between 600 - 700, and my old laptop for 400. The laptop will also be my CFA level III gift to myself :wink:
