good luck to all you Round 2 YSOM applicants.

If it makes you feel any better, I'm sitting here crashing on deadlines for summer internship applications :)

You guys are me 1 year ago, and I am you 1 year from now.

Submitted right around the deadline... OK it's my mistake but I think I hit the submit button after 5 p.m. However since I was logged in the whole way the application system (and thus the application review pdf) says it's R2. Thoughts? :oops:

I'm sure you're fine! I've yet to a see a school that was super stringent on their deadline. It takes adcoms at least a few days to a week to process things, and adcoms generally send out emails informing you if you're missing information (e.g., exam scores, etc) too. Relax -- all you have to do is wait for the invite now :) (easier said than done, I know!)


Thanks! I was thinking and hoping too that if the online app says I've submitted in R2 then the adcoms probably won't be eyeballing the exact hour and minute. :) One less thing to be nervous about. :lol:

I second this... when in doubt...
The Adcom teams are usually pretty helpful in these stress moments.

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.



I didn't visit, unnecessary. BUTTT, you gotta explain why you think you can live/flourish in New Haven/Yale.

Based on last year's thread, should we start seeing the first of the interview invites this week? Anyone have any perspective on how the timing of the invites works? I'm guessing the earlier invites are for individuals that turned in applications earlier?

If the first round posts are any indication, it looks like interview invites could indeed start going out this week. Someone earlier on this thread also mentioned that applications are reviewed and interview invites are sent out at varying times because applications are reviewed randomly (not necessarily the order they were received).

Good luck!

Historically, iirc, you're looking at 60-66%. When they called this year, though, thy did say that the applicant pool was larger and more competitive, so that number may drop some.

I'm assuming you are saying that the acceptance rate is 20% of R1 applicants, not 20% of interviewed R1 applicants. That would make sense to me.

I think he's saying that Yale received 20% more applications in R1 compared to last year.

I'm with GPT55 on this one. I heard a similar stat too that R1 apps were up YoY.
