Completed my interview on Tuesday with Mr. Anjani Jain. Such a humble person and very helpful. The questions were all straightforward and the interview was more like a conversation between friends. Difficult to form any conclusions about it, since almost everyone had a similar experience with him. Hoping for the best and good luck to all the rest :)

No interview invites reported in a month. Any other round 1 applicants still keeping hope alive?

Not really. At present, I'm trying to move on emotionally to the schools that actually DO want me.

Interestingly the stats here indicate quite low numbers. So there may still be reason for optimism :-).

Hey guys, I just interviewed on campus today next to at least 70-80 other folks. The invite numbers on this thread are certainly LOW. Just figured I throw the info out there.

70-80 in one day?? That seems unrealistic.

As someone who saw campus taken over by prospective students yesterday, 70-80 is a pretty realistic estimate of the number of interviewees. Hope those of you who made it out enjoyed your time here, and good luck come December!

This completely seal any hope I had to get an invite.
Too bad.. I travelled half the world to visit campus (visit my top 3 choices only) a few months back and I really felt good about my app.

Can any current students or people who have already interviewed recommend a decent hotel in the area? I'm not looking to pay too much, but I want someplace decent.

Also, how is parking on campus?

It came in a couple of hours before I posted. But, it was sent on Sunday evening, which is why I totally wasn't expecting it.

close to your interview date Yale will send you an email with instructions on how to park on campus. They'll give you access to a lot that's a 5 min walk away from the school (it's free).

I stayed in the "New Haven Hotel" south of campus. The room was pretty standard, no complaints. And it's a short walk from many restaurants

Gianfranco is right. They'll send details for parking, but if you do end up parking somewhere with a meter, remember your quarters!

Hotels: There's actually a list here: http://som.yale.edu/yale-som-connect/plan-visit
When I interviewed, a lot of people stayed at the Courtyard Marriott. It's close to campus (basically across the street from the campus bookstore) and everything will be walking distance from there if you don't want to rent a car.

And GOOD LUCK!
