Thank you for using the timer!
We noticed you are actually not timing your practice. Click the START button first next time you use the timer.
There are many benefits to timing your practice, including:
I have been seeing most of the folks are apping to HBS, Wahrton and so on
but why is it that few people app to Yale?
dotn they admit as many Engineers?
Is it becos their class intake is small( 200)?
I have set eyes on Yale.
But want to know what you guys have to say//......
I know of a collegaue who apped to Kelloggs becos the intake a huge in numbers !!!!!
now also do the Adcom look for BS GPA? or MS GPA?
my MS GPA is lower than BS.
Thanks for the response
I know 4 people that interviewed at Yale last year. all 4 decided not to go, one went to cornell, another to emory and i dont remember where the other two went
but of wht i heard from them, they said the atmosphere is not like that you see in a really top notch b school. in the sense that the classes, initiative taken for development, inculcating enterprise in people and all tht stuff B schools distinguish themselves on is lacking
for me...it came across as yale's degree is probably over-valued because of its overall name. if a schools program is over-valued it still needs to meet some requirements. do some comparative research you may see the same or find something contrary, it all depends on prefference
I think the reason that Yale does not have the same level as visibility here as schools such as HBS and Penn has less to do with the class size and much more to do with the general reputation of the school. Yale is firmly in the elite cluster along with schools such as Cornell and Berkeley while the HBS and Penn are firmly in the ultra elite cluster. Yale SOM does have a number of strengths but is generally outmatched by the ultra elites. Further, it is important to note that Yale is a very young business school. Considering the fact that many of its rivals had a head start of nearly 80 years Yale has actually done quite well. In the long run it would not be surprising to see its visibility rise as the school matures.
Your undergraduate record is usually more important than the graduate level record since virtually all applicants have undergraduate records and thus it can serve as a point of comparison.
Yale also has a history of MPA/MBA and it tends to attract the save the world non-profit people out there. It's shift from its original MPA to the current MBA is recent so it lacks the strong alumni base a HBS/CBS or others would provide. If you look at its yield its horrible, Yale's SOM is regarded by most applicants as a backup...

I see your point but I am not so sure that Yale's yield is low. First, Yale is an elite cluster school- we should expect it to be outclassed by the ultra elites when it comes to yield. Thus, the fact that Columbia or Harvard of Northwestern might have a higher yield is not very surprising. Second, in some recent years Yale has enjoyed a higher yield than many of its fellow elite cluster schools including UCB, UVA, UCLA, Dartmouth, Michigan, Cornell, NYU, and Duke. Indeed, in one year Yale had the highest yield of the entire elite cluster. It is probably true that Yale is often regarded as a second choice school but this is a hazard faced by virtually all the elite cluster schools.
