Great link, nink.

Longtime gmatclubber here, a reapplicant to Yale.

Just clarifying: For the personal statements, does it mean I can only write TWO essays, one of which HAS to be the reapplicant essay (meaning the other PS has to be from choices 1-3)?

I don't remember what the procedure was for reapplicants. My impression was that if you are reapplying within 2 yrs, you only have to submit the reapplication essay to reclarify some goals and etc. I would call the admissions office or post that question in the SOM Talk Forum http://som-talks.som.yale.edu/forums/

What is the *exact* time for the deadline for Round 1? Is it Oct 6th, 11:59pm EST? Or 5:00pm EST? I'm not able to find this info anywhere. Thanks.

I would assume its 11:59PM Yale local time if it is not explicitly stated. If you are concerned, a quick call to the admissions office should be able to confirm this. Would not want to miss the deadline for no reason.

Any other Round 1ers noticing that when you click to preview your whole App before submitting, it omits all the Description fields from your "Work Experience" page? It has the dates, salaries, reasons for leaving, everything but that one field. Am I the only one seeing this? It bugs me out. Does anybody know the word-count limit on those?

Any idea why some rankings have Yale as low as 20-25?? The admissions standards, diversity, Ivy prestige, etc should equal a top ten ranking regardless of the source, right?

I have the same problem where the Job Description text does not showing on my application preview. I would guess its because last year's app didn't have this description box for job description. Not sure how long we could write there.

Looks like a recommendation might go in after the deadline. Would this mean that I wouldn't be considered for R1?

Very frustrating. Also the online interface didn't say how long the Activities descriptions can be. Only after I clicked through to preview did it reveal the "limit 50 words" text, so I had to go back and prune. Now I'm just hoping that my ~100 word job descriptions make it through intact.

I heard that schools have a window that they allow recommenders to come in after the deadline before the application gets pushed to the next round. Again this is not confirmed, so I would make sure you recommender submits today or tomorrow at the latest if the window does indeed exist.

I only know of one business school ranking that places Yale outside of the top 15 (of all business schools worldwide) and it is the infamous BusinessWeek rankings, which also happen to rank Booth over HBS / Wharton and Stanford at #5. Someone I know spoke to our new Dean Snyder about this and the new administration is making a powerful effort in working with BW to have it better reflect reality. To some extent, the rankings don't really matter but on the other hand, I think it is a positive that we are addressing this issue to eliminate any doubts as to our quality.

From what I know, the metrics BW uses are flawed and place an enormous emphasis on student evaluations. Despite the fact that we had the highest rate of alumni donations (either last year or the year before that) and that alumni support is extremely strong (based on my own experiences of reaching out), we have a very unique student body. Student evaluations responded with overall sentiments of "good" to "very good." Apparently, virtually all the other schools had feedback ranging from "Very very good" to "Amazing." I think this is attributed more towards our students' modesty and honesty, rather than a reflection of actual school quality...

Yale has always prided itself in a culture of integrity, which is intertwined with the strong social sector commitment. As a result, there is a real value in leadership and people here are extremely honest and don't play to game the system as well. That is one setback with our mentality here. I think as the students here respond more in-line with the kids at other business schools for these student surveys, I think you will see our rankings rise a lot in the next few years... Some unofficial sources say that we had close to a 100% internship placement rate for the most recent class... I personally don't know a single person who didn't land a summer internship offer of his/her choice...

I have applied for R1. It's official. Last year, interview invites came in as soon as 2 days after submission. Let's all keep our fingers crossed

Just submitted mine!

Oops! should've checked Gmat Club before submitting :(
Where did you see the "50 words" limit? I can see the limit for reasons for leaving (that too in the preview, not sure if they mentioned this limit in the application). But definitely sure they did not mention any limit for job description in the application. I have ~100 words easily!

Can't see the JD in my preview. Hope it's all right.
