Can someone give me some tips on framing my SOP??.... Also.. Is it better for me to take a shot in R3 this year or wait and apply for R1 next year???


I personally think that earlier is better, but "when you're ready" is best.

Also, you might want to consider the fact that Yale SOM would have moved to the newer (and bigger) building come 2014, which means they probably have more seats to fill.

Did anyone that was accepted receive an email? I was accepted and can view the congratulatory letter via the website but never received an email from Yale...

I received an email that said something like your 'application status has been updated, click here to view it for more details,' which got me to the login page to view the letter and website.

I received the status update email as well as an email from adcom (I missed the call so they sent a follow-up email). I also received a congratulatory email from my interviewer, which I thought was a nice touch.

Hey guys, Admits and Prospectives in the Boston area are invited to come to Cambridge Brewing Company at 8pm this Tursday, 12/20 for a very casual get-together organized by some first-year SOMers home for the holidays. Feel free to PM me for more details.

Waitlisted without an interview. Didn't know that was an option at all. Probably should've given them a visit when I was up at Tuck. Love the program on paper, but haven't been to the SOM part of Yale.


Here's Yale's response to being waitlisted without an interview:

I haven’t been interviewed yet. Is that unusual?

Since we have limited interview appointment availability, it is not uncommon to be placed on the wait list before being interviewed. We will contact you if we feel an interview is necessary.

Before I got what seemed to be a system generated email which contained a link to my admissions decision, I first got a personal email from one of their associate directors, which I believe took the place of a congratulatory call.

I also got a call from a second year student just now, which I missed, so they sent me an email again.

I don't think you should worry about anything. As long as you're accepted, then you're accepted. Congrats! :)

It was the other way around for me. I almost immediately sent a "thank you" email to my interviewer after getting accepted. Haha! I assumed he had some part in my acceptance so I wanted him to know I appreciated what he did. :lol:

Thanks for the reminder, MAJMMM -- just signed up for the ones in my area.

I just went to the one in my area this week and it actually was a lot of fun. Very laid back, informal setting where you have the opportunity to get to know more SOMers. Would definitely recommend going to one if you can.

Hi mbamust30,

Yale's recommendation questions were posted on Page 2 of this thread here.

I've also included them below for your reference:

machichi wrote:
Please write an assessment of the applicant that addresses the prompts below. We are looking for your candid and accurate assessment of the applicant's potential to be a successful leader and what specific traits the applicant possesses that evidence this potential. Please be as specific as possible and use concrete examples where applicable. Do not incorporate anything drafted by the candidate in your recommendation or have the candidate submit the recommendation on your behalf.
• Please comment on the context of your interaction with the applicant. How long have you known the applicant and in what connection? If applicable, briefly describe the applicant's role in your organization. (250 words)
• Please describe the most important piece of constructive feedback you have given the applicant. Please detail the circumstances and the applicant's response. (250 words)
• How does the applicant's performance compare to other well-qualified individuals in similar roles? (250 words)
• Please make additional statements about the applicant's performance, potential or personal qualities you believe would be helpful to the admissions committee. (250 words)

Re: Yale SOM 2013 - Calling All Applicants [#permalink] New post 26 Dec 2012, 15:36
I am applying in Round 2. Does anyone know when I could expect to get an interview invitation? My visa is expiring and I need to leave the country by the first week of Feb. I was wondering if it is worth staying here till the end of January expecting an interview [I assume it would be better to give the interview on campus as opposed to off campus]. If there is no chance of getting the interview in Jan, then I might as well leave early.

Any advice is much appreciated guys.

Hi! I think your best frame of reference would be the turn-around-time for Round 1 this year or the TAT for Round 2 last year.
This year we got invites as early as about a week after the R1 application deadline. But there's really no telling whether you get invited on the first week, second week, or on the week when they announce decisions.

I don't think they would take it against you if you can't come to New Haven for an interview, being an international applicant. I myself had my interview via Skype, and I can't say it hurt my chances of getting in. How you perform in the interview would probably be a better measure of your application strength versus the nature/manner of your interview (on-campus, during a Yale SOM event, or via Skype).

I hope this helps. Best of luck to you! :)

I'd like some advice from current Yale SOM students.

How important do you think it is to visit Yale in person from the ad-com's perspective? Some schools such as Tuck and Fuqua place a big emphasis on visiting in person.

I've been trying to visit Yale for a while but their visit calendar is booked until February and I don't want to apply if not visiting the school will lower my chances of getting in.

Thanks for your input.

Gsmon - to offer one data point, I applied without prior visit and was interviewed and admitted. Yale doesn't seem to worry too much about visiting before applying, but they do like candidate to come on campus for interviews. You should be fine, but definitely do your research as Yale has a very different program from many top schools.

I came all the way from California for my interview and they told me that my trip would be looked at quite favorably in making the final decision. So yeah, don't worry about necessarily getting there beforehand, but if you can swing it for an interview (assuming you get invited), you definitely should.

Thanks Dhokie2. I am more than happy to visit in person for an interview but just wasn't sure if it's "essential" before applying.
