Again, as a 1st year, if anyone is coming in for an interview and want to meet some of us, relax before the interview, or hang out after, please message me. More than happy to help.

Hey guys,
Could anyone throw some light on how Yale hands out dings? If not selected to interview, can I expect a rejection mail in my inbox anytime now, or will that decision also be communicated only on the last day?

The wait only gets more and more excruciating.

How it happened last year: Acceptance calls typically started in the afternoon on the day of notification, and not any earlier. Some international applicants got e-mails with their acceptances, though most received phone calls. ALL of the e-mails, acceptances, waitlists, and dings got sent out late on that day. There were a number of waitlisted candidates on GMAT Club last year, as I recall.

The wait sucks, but it ain't over til it's over. I wrote a business plan while I was waiting for my interview invites, and then my in/ding e-mails, just to take my mind off of the waiting.

If we go by the same pattern as the previous batches of invites, we've got another hour or so before anything shows up.

Seriously...

I just try to be as pessimistic about it as possible. That way I can only be pleasantly surprised.

Congrats to the two people who just got invites. Looks like another batch has gone out. Hope is falling really fast for me.

Optimistic Dbalks: You live close to New Haven and its easy for you to get there. They will let people from further away make travel arrangements and get interview slots first.
Pessimistic Dbalks: You suck. Youve always sucked.

I got one as well! Whoever said that Fridays were the release days seems to have hit it on the head.

See you in New Haven!

I feel like the Rodney Dangerfield character in this exchange:

Mr. Burns: Something is not right about Larry's upbringing. Send for the boys of Yale at once!
(Burns' office. Two admissions officers from Yale are by his desk)
Mr. Burns: Well, how did the interview go?
Male Admissions Officer: Larry made light of my weight, then suggested my motto ought to be "Semper Fudge". Afterwards he told me to "relax" and "forget about it".
Mr. Burns: OK, OK. How were his test scores?
Female Admissions Officer: Let me put it this way. Larry spelled Yale with a 6.
(Mr. Burns, in a not-to-subtle moves, opens his checkbook)
Mr. Burns: Oh, I almost forgot, it is time for your annual contribution. How much should I give?
Male Admissions Officer: Let us see. A score of 400 would require new football uniforms. A score of 300 would require a new dormitory.
Mr. Burns: And in Larry's case?
Male Admissions Officer: A new international airport.
Female Admissions Officer: Yale could use an international airport, Mr. Burns.
Mr. Burns: Blast you! I am not made of airports! Get out!

For us unfortunate ones who have not been invited for an interview, does your status still just say "Submitted"?

I didn't know if they would update it if they were reviewing the file, or if that is not something I should read into at this point.

I got an interview invitation this morning and decided to fly over to New Haven from Hong Kong.

It would cost me a bit lot but think worth the try in order to show my interest and passion in Yale SOM thou.

But I am already overwhelmed by long flight from here to NY and transfer from NY to New Haven, phew.
