20% invited to interview makes more sense.

Anyone has the acceptance rate given that the person was invited to interview???

I've heard it thrown about that every school's applications are up. I'm skeptical. Even if R1 has more applications, it may just be from the GMAT changes, which have caused people to get their act together earlier. I'm guessing there won't be significant changes at most school when all the rounds are tallied up.

For most schools about 50-60% of interviewees are accepted. I'm guessing Yale is the same.

LOL, so true. Have you decided which school you'll attend?

From what I've noticed, Yale SOM is attracting more students, so perhaps it's 20%+ is in terms of number of applications. I wonder if the new building might also contribute something to that? Whomever that posted the 20%+ should just clarify since we're all speculating!

I had a call with a current student at Yale last night that all but had me handing my deposit over! Every interaction I've had with Yale students has been immensely positive.

On the Kellogg front, I have an admit student event on Thursday and a call on Friday with a current student, so we'll see if things change...I've said this elsewhere, but Kellogg has a lot of catching up to do.

The building certainly isn't hurting! I hate to say that it's a draw for me. Does that make me superficial?

That's great to hear you're talking to the students and weighing your decision! I visited Yale (applied R2 so waiting/anxious right now), and loved the environment there, and there sure was a buzz going on about the new building.

I don't think it's that "superficial" since I think it's great that the school is investing in its infrastructure to provide you with a better studying/networking environment, and if you're going to spend that much money (and some years later to pay off), then in a way, you'll get to see the tangible results of *your* investments. But of course, the decision is more comprehensive than that, such as post-grad career direction and the location/community, etc., so I guess after considering those other factors and if all things are equal, I'd know which school (or building) it would be!! LOL.

Either way, all the best!! Where you are now is a good place to be!

Hello All,

I received an interview invite today, and I have a rather urgent question, as I am trying to schedule the interview now. Does it matter if I interview sooner or later, more specifically, does it hurt me if I wait to interview on the "SUPER DAY" interview on February 22nd?

I am worried that they "give out" spots as people interview and I don't want to pass up the earlier interview spots just for convenience, when it could cost me a spot or some sort of scholarship.

What do you think?

Thanks

Congratulations on the invite! I am under the impression that when you interview has no bearing on your decision since the interview is only one additional component to your application, and all applications are re-reviewed in their entirety before a decision is made (my interviewer stressed this both at the beginning and at the end of my interview).

Personally, I wanted to get it done sooner so I didn't have to think about it for an entire month, but that's just me. Go ahead and pick a date that works best for you!

Thanks very much for your reply. That is what I was hoping to hear. I was worried that they "re-review" the applications after they are done with the interview instead of all at one time, for lack of a better descriptor.

I think that I am going to go ahead and book the "super day" invite and hope for the best.

Thanks

Yeah, there are multiple people on GC who interviewed the last week interviews were offered in R1 and were accepted, so the day of your interview may not be so much of a worry. Just be able to talk about your experiences and why Yale is the school for you.... and don't forget to breathe. Good luck!!

Ditto what aerien says. I interviewed the very last day of interview slots in R1. There were a good 12 of us there and I know of at least 3 who got in. You're fine.

Congrats everyone, I got an invite too~! This is my first one and the Puyallup's question came to my mind too. When do admissions officers start giving out offers? I may be reading too much into it but of all the schools that I applied to, only Booth explicitly stated that all decisions will be released at once on a particular date/time. Most other schools (incl. Yale) said decisions will be released by a certain date, which technically gives them plenty leeway to extend offers maybe even with scholarships to people early (by weeks, maybe even a month). Do schools actually do that, and to what extent?

The difference in approach you point out between so-called "rolling admission" schools (Yale, Stern etc.) and traditional "decision-date" schools is interesting, but I would not read too much into it. I can not force myself to believe they would disadvantage anyone within a round based on when he or she interviews. My only guess is that they'll extend admission offers earlier to people who really stand out of the pack and who they definitely want on board.

As far as I know everyone received R1 admissions offers on the same day this year, which was the date posted on the website (12/13) and also listed as the date we would hear 'by'. Someone checked with the admissions office about this - 'by' meant 'on', at least for R1. I interviewed the same week as machichi, although a few days earlier, and I know at least a few of the people who were there were offered admission too. You might want to read through our many pages of anxious postings earlier in this thread as the R1 applicants had this same discussion.

The only people who received calls earlier than 12/13 were international applicants, and it was already the 13th of December in their respective time zones when they got the calls.

Anybody attending Winter Welcome, and if so are you being hosted for Sunday night?

Starting to look at apartment locations. Any current SOMers that have opinions about East Rock vs Downtown? What are some popular apartment complexes/areas to live?

I'm attending Winter Welcome, but not being hosted (I'm from the area).

New Haven doesn't have a lot of large apartment complexes, but I know some students live in 360 State and a couple of buildings on Church Street. There are a few more in the downtown area (Temple, Chapel, etc.) East Rock is mostly multi-family homes without large apartment complexes. East Rock is more residential; downtown is closer to bars/restaurants, so I suppose some of it depends on your preference.

Hey there, and congrats!

As others have said, it depends what you're looking for, but you may also be surprised when you see it with your own eyes. I came from Brooklyn, so all prices were immediately so much more reasonable than I was used to, but they are not cheap by the standards of most of the rest of the country. I'd say 80% falls between $700 and$950 per person per month. Some Downtown apartment complexes, (like 360 State and the Eli) are on the upper bound, and can cost significantly more than that, so just keep that in mind.

I LOVE my house in East Rock. I'll have a 3 minute walk to class when the new building opens, (it's 7 mins now), and I'm on the Southern end of East Rock, so I can quite easily walk to GPSCY, Shake Shack, 360 State, and other parts of the Yale Campus. Those that live a bit higher in East Rock typically have bikes so they can get to class no problem. That said - although East Rock seems to be a bit sleepier since it's filled with converted old colonial mansions, we have held a significant amount of parties, game nights, barbecues, and so on in East Rock, including 4 or 5 progressive parties. It's also probably the "safest" neighborhood in New Haven, though I put that in quotes because most students live in pretty safe neighborhoods - I've yet to feel unsafe walking around the Yale Campus surrounding neighborhoods.

Interesting fact: 360 State was designed by an SOM and YArch alum, and we studied it for our very first case during orientation. It's a really cool building, akin to some of the more corporate condo buildings in the Financial District of Manhattan.

Welcome Weekend is typically a better time to check out potential apartments - I both met my roommates and put down my deposit that weekend. A lot of the August 1st rentals won't even come onto the market until May/June anyway, so if you're going to be checking places out, I'd suggest looking more at neighborhoods, and housing attributes that you're looking for.

Thanks for the info all. OhDenny are there many coffee shops/restaurants in the East Rock area near campus or is it primarily residential?
