Thanks for setting this up! 2017s, looking forward to getting to know you!
If you're looking for more information about the application process/life at SOM, do check out some of the summer events (some hosted by Admissions and others hosted by students). RSVP required: http://som.yale.edu/our-programs/full-t ... ions-event

PS. For those of you in Hyderabad, there's an admissions event on June 19 with Dean Anjani Jain. He's really awesome (and if you followed the 2016 thread, you'll know he interviewed some GC-ers last year in India), so you might want to say hello ;)

I am in for Round 1 as well -

In case you all haven't seen it already, I would like to inform you all that Yale website has offered an early announcement of the essay topic "The Yale School of Management educates individuals who will have deep and lasting impact on the organizations they lead. Describe how you have positively influenced an organization—as an employee, a member, or an outside constituent. (500 words maximum)". The individual round deadlines have been announced as well (R1 - September 18).

I am not allowed to post urls here at the moment, so apologies for not offering the direct link but I am sure you all internet savy people will be able to search on Yale website. The application platform is not active yet but will be so in a month time. Cheers

Here you are, right from Bruce: http://som.yale.edu/node/36337

There is only ONE essay this year (cited above) and deadlines have been announced as well. The summer will go by very quickly, so start working on your essay drafts early!

Hi
I'm an Indian undergrad in my senior year from a top level state university(not iit) 75.6%-Top 5% of the class.
-3 Internships. One at Honeywell , one at state power generation corporation, one in a large construction firm in India.
- Worked as an internal consultant for an IT startup(held many key responsibilities including funding for modernization and re-architecture process, served as a change agent by introducing techniques like prototyping and risk assessment and management also handled a few client projects)
- 2 international publications(not ieee, one of them pure computer science related and another is based on risk assessment and an alternative solution to FMEA)
- State 3rd rank in high school examination (98.8 percent, was given special recognition at an educational fair by the then Home Minister of the State) and 93% in 10th standard.
--
Led several teams in many competitions like :

1)" Manthan"- A nationwide political competition to address 14 critical challenges that India faced in 2013(18,000 students participated in it). Led the team to 2nd place in popular category of our theme and was invited to Grand Culmination Convention which was graced by the presence of dignitaries like the Current Prime Minister of India, Finance Minister of India, Chiefs of staff of many departments and other business and thought leaders.
2)Honeywell Young Innovator Challenge, led the team to finals (competition had several phases which lasted 8 months long including show and tell session on the final day where we engaged with a crowd of more than 2000 marketing and proposing our idea. Youngest team there competed with grad school students and senior year students while we were in sophomore.was awarded an internship later)
--
Was elected as a member of the organizing committee of the annually held national level technical symposium. Was responsible for managing the entire finance and budget, monitoring cash flows, supervising event coordinators, leveraged this opportunity to create funds to the IT startup in an innovative way making them conduct workshops for students to learn new technologies with hands-on experience.
--
I'm applying to HBS 2+2 in R1 can you shed some light on my chances and also Yale Silver Scholars and Stanford GSB deferred admission (applying through the Reliance Fellowship, confident enough of being a finalist).

(Yet to give gmat expecting a good score)
P.S I also have a strong network of Influential people and I mean really influential.
( Sorry for the Lengthy info. :p)

If you dislike driving, you can take the Amtrak to New Haven. From the New Haven train station, you can either walk to Yale SOM or take a free Yale shuttle there.

I'm in for R1 as well.

Does anyone know for sure if Yale is going to be among those schools which are adopting common recommendation questions this year?
