Yes, keep them coming!

I thought today was going to be my day, but alas it appears they have gone out and I have seen nothing.


Ok so the pattern seems clear then-interview invites going out Fridays. Havn't heard anything yet though...Is there a particular time, or could I expect a mail anytime before EOD?

They can email you at anytime I would guess, its their world, we're just living in it. When multiple people do get invites though, it has seemed they get them at the same exact time the past couple fridays. So it looks like unless there is another batch of multiples this afternoon, another long week ahead.

Actually with the hurricane going past my house, this week went much quicker with no power because I couldnt check every night.

They do go out at other times - I got mine on a Thursday night, the day before a batch went out, so it does happen.

DBalks, sorry to hear about your power situation - I hope everything is all right where you are.

@ skm - yeah I remember you being the outlier a couple of Thursdays ago.. Good luck with the interview at the end of the month..

@Melodania - Things are dandy for me, even without power. The north jersey and nyc people are a fairly helpful and resiliant bunch in times like these.

My experience as an SOM applicant is quickly eclipsing my experience as a free ticket holder to the Googa Mooga in Prospect Park.

You and I both. Hope to hear good news soon from Yale, but looks like I will have to wait at least another week to hear anything.

You could do either. If there are no effects from the hurricane when you travel, I'd go for NYC because Metro-North trains run more often than Amtrak out of Boston (Amtrak also runs from New York but I've always taken the commuter train option when going from NY to CT).

So stoked to be granted the opportunity to tell my interviewer how much I'd love to attend Yale.
There still remains hope! Best of luck dbalks and all, I'm certain there will be more invites on the way~


That's great to hear! Congrats, and good luck on your interview!

Congrats to everybody with invites and good luck to everybody else. Can we just skip this waiting for invites stage and fast forward to the decision date?

Anyone that has already done their interview on campus have any recommendations on Hotels? I'm taking the train to Yale so I'd prefer for it to be in walking distance.

Hi everyone,
This is my first post on the forum

I am a college student in India and I received my interview invitation from Yale Silver Scholar's today. :-D :-D

Would really appreciate some tips or suggestions regarding the entire interview process.

Thanks !!

When I visited Yale I stayed at the Omni. I don't remember a lot of other choices and it was pretty walkable. It's a quaint town.

So psyched for you, OjilEye! Maybe we'll cross paths? I made my interview for Nov. 29.

Congratulations to everyone who received invites today!

To those of you who have already interviewed on-campus, can you share your experiences with us? Did your experience differ at all from the Skype interviews previously detailed on this thread?

You can also do the Study at Yale or the Courtyard Marriott. There's also the New Haven Hotel, but it's on the other side of the Omni and so means a slightly further walk. There isn't much else that doesn't require a car.

Please go buy the warmest coat available wherever you are. The weather's taking a turn towards winter and I think the east coast days of 40/50 degrees are numbered. Granted when you're coming from 80, anything 65 and under is all cold...maybe you should invest in a hat and a scarf too!

Congratulations to the latest batch of gmatclub-ers who received their invites! Good luck, folks! :)
Hope you guys could also update your profiles so we can see how our forum is performing versus the published "interview invite rate".

As it is, we're still at around 18%, so if we take the data from last year there should still be a lot more invites to come out. Good luck to the rest of the folks here who are waiting for their invites!

*this is me trying to pass time while waiting for the decision date* @_@
