I was wondering the same thing. Maybe there was some truth to the notion that the early invites went to mostly consortium and pre-deadline submitters.


I don't know if that is the case. I turned my application in about 30 minutes before deadline and received an interview request before Jan 11th. Also, does anyone know if Yale doesn't like requests to interview with an Alumn instead of coming to campus? I'm having trouble scheduling with work, have already visited the campus, and don't want to piss them off.

Everyone's told me off-campus interviews will not affect your candidacy at all. So that's what I opted for, for the same reasons.

an update, thought you guys might like to know. I found out that they've not started reading my application yet, but they're going to do so soon. I am far from a star candidate though in terms of my UGPA. My GMAT is maybe 20 points above their average. Anyway, don't lose hope people.

there was an issue with the upload of certain documents so my essays weren't formatted properly. I had to resubmit and they told me to not worry, they hadn't seen the old essays yet so I hadn't been pre-judged on those.

We can all speculate on the order in which Yale reviews applications, but I think we can all agree that there is no need to worry yet.

For those of you that haven't received an interview invite, what is the status of your application? Mine says "Submitted". I was wondering whether that gets changed to "Received" or "Under Review" or anything like that.

yes, it's useless to speculate. there's not as secret formula as to whose gets read first. It might be that extraordinary applicants with eye grabbing stats get read first, but for the normal 90% of us, I don't think there's an order. To answer the poster above, no the status doesn't change to 'under review', sadly. I know this because my status according to when I called was 'under review' but on the website it still just says 'received'.

For those of you folks weighing the on-campus interview:

I had an off-campus alumni interview, (in Fort Lauderdale, FL - not a major market!), and it went great. However, they were a little sticky about putting it together for me, probably because my permanent address is in Brooklyn. That said, I felt justified in asking as I'd previously interviewed on-campus, and done all of the campus visit activities: tour, class visit, lunch, etc. I believe SOM is another one of those that takes a visit very seriously into account. So if you've already visited, or plan on making a separate visit after the interview period, then I'd say you're fine to request an off-campus. If not, you'll want to seriously consider making the trip.

Anyone stayed at La Quinta Inn, New Haven? How far is it from campus? Do I need to bring a full set of pajamas complete with footies to keep the bed bugs from biting?

I have never had a bad experience with La Quinta. I even have their loyalty card. So it should be ok.

I LOVE that La Quinta. And it's so close to campus. Good luck!

That's correct. You'll get an update notification that provides a link to a PDF letter. The letter will say if you're accepted, denied or wait listed. If you don't see such a notification, then you're still being processed.

Hello all – I wonder if an “admitted and Attending Yale SOM, Class of 2014” thread has been started. If not, I’m going to start one ASAP.

After some consideration, I decided to go to Yale instead of Wharton (I asked them to remove my name from the Admit list, painful as it was to say no to a lovely program – Philly and I are enemies! ). OK, I’ll post the link for Yale Admits shortly!! Cheers!!

Congrats on the admit!

I personally love Philly, but prefer the environment at Yale itself over Wharton's.

I am applying to both Yale and Wharton and would like to ask, what led you to choose Yale over Wharton?

I am applying to both Yale and Wharton and would like to ask, what led you to choose Yale over Wharton?




1) I hate Philly.
2) I like new haven. I also know it well and want to keep my car in grad school, something I can't do in Philly with the insane drivers and entitled pedestrians!!
3) I went to school at princeton, which is more like Yale than it is like Wharton and I suppose I want to stay in an environment I like.
4) family "tradition" of going to yale. Sister went there for another Masters degree.
5) Wharton has a better established MBA program but Yale University is a better university and a better renowned name, particularly internationally (all in my subjective opinion, of course) than Penn.I grew up abroad and never heard of penn until I got here. I dreamed as a child of going to one of Yale, princeton, MIT, Stanford and Harvard - they're my favorite American schools. Wharton (not penn) is renowned in the world of business, Yale is a great university for anything!
6) the people at Yale were very friendly and awesome. The people I met at penn were almost-universally Gollum-like, including the rude people I asked for directions and the parrot-like prospective students who (unprompted) started bragging about their accomplishments as we awaited our interview. It was hilarious in a bad way, since I just sat there and stared in silence!
7) friends who go to Wharton tell me the students are taught to be "an army of one", something my Columbia interviewer (who went to Wharton for his undergrad and columbia for his MBA cited as a reason he preferred to avoid the MBA program there - he didn't like the piranha mentality). People tell me it's a certain character-type that excels in the ultra-competitive win-at-all-costs environment at Wharton (not all top schools are like this - yale certainly is NOT!) and I know I'm not that type.
8) the campus at Yale is awesome. See (1) above for info on my opinion of wharton's campus. I was underwhelmed by the buildings I saw when I visited Wharton.
9) finally, emotional irrationality - I have an inexplicable emotional connection to Yale. Wharton felt like MIT Sloan did when I visited for AdMIT last year - a collection of buildings with no ambience, no soul. My heart tells me Yale. I'm going with my heart!


Hope this helps explain the tough decision I made! I was lucky - not many people get into even one of these schools. I had the luxury of choosing! Good luck with your applications!!!
