I disagree. If you look back at past years. Many people who were still waitlisted at r3 decision and actively interested in the school were admitted between may and july.


Dean Snyder had an online chat yesterday with admitted students and mentioned that yield and # of apps was higher this year though he did not specify by how much. Obviously, it's too early to tell how R2 yield will be but just something to keep in mind for those waiting.

# of apps isn't as relevant as yield for WLers. Even more important than compared to last year is what they were expecting - I assume they expected an increased yield based on the last few years trend. No school wants to OVER enroll so they always err on the side of under enrolling and filling from WL.

And not that this is any official indication (and subject to change on a day to day basis) BUT The fb group has 220 people in it. Last years fb group had 289 (40 more than class of 249). If they are increasing class to 270, you would expect the fb group would eventually have somewhere around 310 before class was filled. Of course many people don't join the group and many are matriculating elsewhere but are still members, so its quite inexact.

You're also missing any R3 admits and I'd expect more R2 admits to join after welcome weekend should they decide to matriculate.

One thing I've noticed from R1 is that some people have removed themselves from the group when they decided to go elsewhere, which would at least decrease the numbers inflation from cross admits.

All very true. I'm just hoping the yield r2 is much lower than expected. But thats me being selfish!

I would also say that the FB group is still accepting people (it looks like ~7 people were just added a few hours ago), so who knows how indicative the current number is. I do agree with chessmaster1234's assessment on the role of the waitlist though. I can't imagine yield not being a high priority since Dean Snyder is all about climbing the rankings while Yale has historically had the lowest yield of the top 15 schools. That could only lead to a heaver reliance on the WL.

I wouldn't stress too much over the stats

220 on the FB group versus 289 of last year is really seemingly hopeful
I would wait, though, until other important dates pass (admitted weekend, deposit deadline... etc).

Good luck everybody!

Hi all,

it seems some schools are planning on using the wait list a lot this year. In the sloan forum, they predicted about 50 will come off wait list. WL has a ripple effect when top schools take people off it trickles down. Not sure what effect schools like booth, sloan, wharton using WL more than other years could have on SOM WL.

I gave a call to the admissions office a few days ago and the person told me that “Waitlisters will be considered AFTER the Round 3 decision”.
This is awkward, because I saw a few people who were waitlisted on R1 having updates on their application on the R2 decision date. Therefore, I thought we would have our decision analogously (R2 WL to have the decision BY R3 or afterwards).
Has anybody else heard something like that? I am not sure if I wrongly understood that or they will really consider us after the R3.

Waitlist is mostly used to fill in last minute dropouts during the summer. You aren't getting in dude. Maybe a few people will, but that's it.

I emailed the admissions committee asking for feedback exactly 2 weeks ago and I have not received any sort of response. Anyone have any luck with the adcom trying to get feedback on the application?

R1 WL'er here.

the updated that happened at R2 decision date were rejections or re-waitlists. To me, this reads as adcom "letting go" of WL'ers after seeing who accepted R1 offers and who applied R2. Adcom may wait till after R3 because R3 is the smallest and maybe they don't expect the same sort of high #s of applicants in R3. It makes sense to me that Adcom might let go a few people with the R3 decisions, but would wait to make WL offers until after they see who enrolls/confirms from R3.

I am a little disappointed with how SOM is handling the waitlisted candidates. It's been almost a month since I requested feedback and I haven't heard anything.

The good news is that the round 2 decision deadline is right around the corner (May 1) and the round 3 application deadline just passed, so now the adcom has a full idea of the applicant pool and a good sense for how many people are accepting their offers.

In case it is at all helpful (not that I think you can extrapolate much from this, unfortunately), the Facebook group currently stands at 274 members.

I know it's frustrating, but keep in mind that this is probably a very busy time at adcom (figuring out which round 3 candidates to interview and answering a flurry of questions from round 2-ers on the brink of depositing). I've found that Yale was very personalized in all my interactions, but sometimes it does take them longer to respond.

One of my good friends got off the waitlist at Yale, so it does happen! His tip was to make sure you absolutely say you will attend if accepted. Probably nothing you haven't heard already, but they really do want to see that you are 100% committed to Yale.

Good luck, guys! Hope to see some of you at orientation in a few months :-D

I sent in my letter of intent + update letter last week and got no response either. Judging from the earlier posts on here, I think they've put the WL-candidate stack on hold until they sort everything else out. I'm guessing / hoping this thread will start seeing some action from the third week of May onwards.
