Congratulations for staying alive.

Were you waitlisted after a real interview or just the wowzer video interview?

I wonder if anybody got in after just taking the video interview.

I only did the video interview; I was actually 99.9% positive that I will get dinged, and was surprised to get waitlisted. Seems like there are a lot of people on the wl, so I don't fancy my chances.

You should check your status on-line. They're updated.

Also, I realize that all the people who got in or got wailisted on round 3 come from a finance background.
Additionally, I don't think it's a coincidence that all the round 2 accepted people (at least 6 people) that I know happened to be finance people.
This is somewhat in line with the fact that the new Dean of SOM just came from Booth (UChicago), which is a hardcore finance school.

Well it may not be a coincidence, but I think it's more indicative of who applies to Yale. Yale tends to draw people with an interest in non-profit, finance, and consulting. I don't think we can assume that they are admitting a disproportionate number of finance candidates. Do you yourself work in finance? Perhaps you just have been connected with those types? GMATclub just isn't that representative of the pool at large.

That said, I agree that Yale is probably moving to increase its class primarily in the for-profit arena. Basically they can improve recruiter perspectives about Yale by increasing the number of hires that recruiters make and by ensuring that there are enough bodies at Yale to make it worth their while to send a representative.

I got waitlisted and I don't work in finance. I think Yale is probably one of the most well rounded schools - when I visited Yale, I met people from all sorts of backgrounds (even met a full time ballet dancer and a pro. golfer).

Agreed with hm. Sure, I met a good number of folks with finance backgrounds while interviewing, but I don't feel like I met "too many" when meeting admitted/matriculating students. I feel like in every group I met, everyone had really varied interests and any combination of us would lead to a diverse learning team or study group. I do know people though who didn't even consider Yale because they felt it was just a finance school, so positions vary widely...

I'm a Chinese student running my own business in UK so actually I don't know what does "ding" mean....sorry for this silly question but could you please tell me what the "ding" is?

I'm matriculating from R2 and wasn't from a finance background; in fact, most of the people I met during welcome weekend were not from a finance background. I would agree with aerien in that there was a lot of diverse backgrounds in the incoming class as well as the current students I met.

ding means they didn't get in and were not on the waitlist either

Right?! I feel like there's an appropriate YouTube video of some sort I could post, but it's 3am and why am I awake? Haha :-D

My crazy antics aside, has anyone heard of yield results this year? R3 results on GC were miserable at best (sorry guys :( ) so not much insight into what movement the WL will see if the same pattern continues. Maybe more movement will come once R3 deposits are due?

In case anyone was wondering, I emailed Yale to ask for feedback on my application and their reply was:

"After all application rounds are complete, we will begin to field feedback requests. This process will begin in June. Please expect to receive feedback at that time."
