To those who attended the Winter Welcome - did you get the chance to discuss/look at housing? I have been hearing that downtown or East Rock are the places to stay. Was wondering if you had visited or were recommended any apartment buildings downtown?


We visited 360 State, but not to look at housing. I think most people are planning to figure this out in April.


@OhDenny talked about his house in East Rock here: yale-som-2013-calling-all-applicants-135398-560.html#p1170820

I also stayed in East Rock when I visited and it had a quieter, neighborhood feel as opposed to downtown with restaurants, bars, etc right outside your door. Where you live depends on your personality and where you want to be, but as @skm said most aren't going to figure out specifics until April or after.


I stayed at 360 state with a friend and there are a decent number of Yalies of all varieties- som, med etc. it's a very modern building with all the perks of a big city place (with the appropriate price tag, 2 bedrooms for $2700) but less homey. I hear east rock is cheaper but maybe a little more rundown.

I think "rundown" is relative. Obviously, try to go to New Haven and check out an apartment before you sign a lease, but the few places I did see in East Rock, while older homes (some of them are probably built in the early 1900s), the insides were in great condition with nice appliances, floors, etc

If you're coming from Manhattan and live in a nice walk-up/high-rise with a concierge service and whatnot, then 360 State is probably what you're looking for if you want to keep the same type of living. If you're looking for a home or an apartment that's 1-2 floors of a home, then East Rock is a better fit.

I heard some people live in Mansfield too, but I don't know much about that area/haven't been there.

Question for the acceptees/matriculating folks -- if we submitted scanned copies of transcripts when we applied (and the checklist has a green check mark next to "Transcript"), do we still need to submit official hard-copies?

I might just send them to be sure but just wondering if anyone already figured this out. Thanks!

I think you do. On the admitted students website:
Quote:
If your transcripts and degree certifications were not submitted during the application process, you must send us official transcripts for all institutions you have attended and degree certifications for all institutions from which you have graduated.


I would imagine official means un-scanned, signed, sealed, etc. They also want your transcripts by the enrollment date.

PS. I've been creeping on here for a while, and missed Winter Welcome, but am so excited to meet you all at Welcome Weekend! Thanks for being an awesome resource.

I must say, initially I was thinking 360 state is the way i want to live out b school (downtown/closer to bars/right next to train), but East Rock life may be as or potentially even more social with multiple roommates and more of a neighborhood feel. Would be amazing to get away paying 600 to 800 on rent rather than 1.3K+

I got an email yesterday early afternoon. Coincidentally I was at Yale when it happened watching my old college team play squash at the national championships. I submitted a day or two prior to the r2 deadline so I wouldn't lose hope. I had assumed I missed the boat, but was wrong.

I crafted a fairly lengthy response with my reasoning yesterday evening that for some reason did not post. In short, Yale was just a better fit for my career interests (social enterprise) and in terms of the student culture which, from my experiences, was incredibly communal. I immediately felt like part of a family. Throughout the application process, I've been impressed with Yale's outreach and resources that they have already provided to me. Whether it be putting me in touch with local alumni or discussing career opportunities, if you're willing to ask, they seem very responsive with quelling any concerns. I'm ultimately looking to do some cross-collaboration with the psychology department, and they put me in touch with some contacts even before I enrolled.

This isn't to say that I had any poor experiences with MIT - the people I've met and interacted with have all been bright and high on Sloan. There is certainly a similar culture of collaboration, but I didn't get the same sense of diversity (very relative I know). There's definitely no doubting that the students there work as hard as any. If you're looking into tech, consulting, or finance, MIT has to be involved in any conversation since those areas all fall within its proverbial wheelhouse. Ultimately, I had to go with the school that best aligned with both my interests and personality. Kingfalcon was exactly right in that I ultimately made the decision based on what I wanted out of a school. I would hope that's what everyone is doing.

hi, whats the last date to hear back for an interview decision? could not find that on the Yale SOM website. I don't think it can be much longer.

I am an R2 applicant from Toronto.

Maybe it's fate ;) Good luck at your interview!

This is completely conjecture, but since in R1 the adcom took 2 weeks before the decision date to review apps and not hold any more interviews, working backwards for R2 would mean:

Decisions released: March 28
Last interview day: March 14*
So, last invites would go out by: February 28 (assuming they give you 2 weeks to schedule the interview)

It's possible they could go into early March depending on yield from R1 as well (deposits are due on March 1). I'm just a random person on the Internet guessing though....adcom could invite people all the way to March 28 if they wanted to!

As always, it's not over until it's over so keep hoping!


*Someone with a recent invite could tell when the last available day in the system is
