Seems like it's either admit or waitlist...
Anyways, I am on the list as well..
I honestly don't think I stand a chance since I havent even been invited to an interview!
My question is if I dont do anything to strengthen my application, will it automatically lead to a ding?

WL (without interview). Anyone know how this works?
The WL FAQ says "Before requesting feedback from our office..... review your app considering the following"

1. If we feel that we satisfy all three conditions, can we request for feedback before sending our update letter?
2. Anyone know when the deposit deadline for R1 is? Admits may withdraw then.
3. When's the ideal date to send the update letter?

Dinged without an interview.

Neither surprised nor feeling bad - maybe just made a bad choice as an applicant.

All the best to the members admitted!!

Don't know exactly what the FAQ says, but I would say wait a week before you request feedback regardless. Might not be a bad idea to request it before the update letter (if permissible) just so you can tailor your letter to their comments.

Deposit deadline is 2/24.

I'd ask the AdCom what the best date would be, but my guess would be no later than 2/1.

Thanks!
I think you are bang on target, should be around 2/1, but no harm in trying to ask the Adcom while requesting feedback.

Does someone have a guide somewhere for things we should think about once we've gotten in? (Nink?) I seem to recall there being one for Duke, or another school, or am I just imagining this?

Look at last yr's thread in reverse order. I might have posted something (or was it the yr before?)

Now that you are in, just relax. There will be regional get-togethers for admitted students, admitted student wknd invitation, background check request, etc. But nothing really picks up until R2 is over.

Thanks, nink. I guess I need to chill out. I almost feel lost not having apps to work on and feel like I should be doing something.

Extremely shocked to have received Yale's acceptance email because I didn't receive any interview invite this round! I am a reapplicant from Asia with brief background below-

- 1st application: Jan-2011; Interview: Feb-2011; Waitlisted till Jul-2011
- 2nd application: Oct-2011; No interview
- Education: Undergrad in Canada- GPA 3.6
- GMAT: 700 (Q:49, V:37, AWA:6)
- W/E: Big 4 < 1 yr; Corporate Banking 5 yrs from Management Trainee

I would like to pay my big THANK YOU to the advises & support from friends I have met on this forum :)

TIPS FOR WAITLISTED CANDIDATES:

1) Send an email within the 1st week to the WL manager to ask questions to make sure you know the WL rules well. For example, when and how they would assess WL candidates from now on? On rolling basis or in a batch after some time?

2) Send your Letter of Interest say latest by January end. During my own WL, I was advised to send the LoI in at least 1-2 weeks before the Depsoit Deadline of Admits.

3) Ask for more recommendation letters, especially from graduates of Yale or peers schools. I provided 3 more recommendations during my WL.

4) Don't send them more than 1 email update per month, but try to send one at least every 6 weeks. Content of updates I sent included: deepened understanding on Yale SOM after chat with current students, job promotion and job change.

The wait is always painful... and I say this from my own experience. But please don't give up and show your consistency. Best of luck to all those still waiting!!


Wow, Congratulations! Brilliant advice for those who've been waitlisted.

Hi All,
I was applying to Yale Silver Scholars Program and was wondering if anyone had any information about the academic recommendation. What is the admission committee looking to evaluate from a professors recommendation. What if the professor doesn't know a lot about the student?

Reply awaited

I have a question regarding the GMAT score.
Do we need to send our official score for application evaluation at Yale or can self reported scores be used by the adcom? I understand official scores are required if granted admission, but do we need to send them in as part of our application.
Thanks.
