Not sure how true this is, but I have heard from consultants/ex-adcom directors that you need a wow factor to get accepted in a third round. By wow, I mean either strong profile (stronger than your typical Yale admits) or a very unique story/experiences (such as coming from a country who didn't send anyone to the school this year or a story Adcom hasn't heard before). I have also been told that luck is a huge factor, since yield from Rd1/2 usually impacts how many decisions go out. I myself am planning to apply, but don't really have any hopes. It will be more like a hail mary.

You guys have probably interviewed already, but just a word of caution: do prepare for your interview. Don't bank on the stats, think you have it in the bag, and be disappointed with the outcome.



Of course. I already interviewed anyway but was pointing out the spread between the publicized % and the anecdotal %. Nothing I can do now anyway...It's going to be a long month.


Not implying that you didn't prepare -- just wanted to manage expectations that anything can still happen :)

Your result date is about three weeks away now, and I'll just say that @machichi and I are a little excited for you guys to hear back!


3 weeks seems like eternity.. (as you know) but all we can do is wait for that call!!

I think this is a function of people either being WL or interviewed and then not updating their stats. I hope (for everyone's sake!) that it's higher than 50-60%, but I do know other people who were also WL (I am R1).

Maybe late March will bring everyone good news!

Also a note- I was invited in the FIRST BATCH of interviewees (literally less than a week after submitted/deadline). So- for anyone who got a late invite - who knows!!! what will happen.

Hi all,

I have a question

If I have already interviewed - is it worth visiting campus before 28th March? How do you think the adcom will view it?

Opinions welcome :D

Where do you live? If it's convenient and you haven't made it, they might be skeptical about you. However, if you're international, they will probably understand. Did you interview on campus? If so, don't sweat it. If not, I still wouldn't worry about it, but visit if you want. Certainly no harm in making the trip (except to your bank account!).

I would save the trip until you get in. Then you can visit for the admitted student events. The visit is more for you to learn about the school and the fit and I don't think the visit will make or break the admissions decision.

I actually went to New Haven for the on campus interview and the visit program but I could not do either of things because of the snow storm Nemo. If I'm admitted, I am definitely going back to experience New Haven and SOM first hand.

To add to this: Yale's spring break starts this Saturday and lasts until the 23rd. If you want a better feel for what campus is like when students are actually here, you might want to wait.

Another addition: if you visit before spring break (aka this week) all first years won't be there either since they're on the international experience trips. Visit after spring break if you want, but definitely go to to Welcome Weekend if you're admitted.

I hope you are correct. Out of curiosity, where did you get the publicized and anecdotal% ? Are you only looking at GMAT club members. Looking back 2-3 years the admitted/Interviewed ratio if about 65% from the GMAT Club website.

I don't have an exact place for publicized but SOM admissions has been saying about a third are interviewed and a little more than half of those people are offered admission. Anecdotal is from looking at everyone who received interviews on gmatclub the past two years. If you look at anyone's profile who posted that they interviewed, a huge majority were accepted.

I don't think so.. the rankings that came out in March 2012 were based on survey results from fall 2011. That would mean yield numbers would come from the 10-11 cycle (entering class of 2013) since the 11-12 cycle would still be in the middle of app reviews.

If I misunderstand the methodology, please let me know!

Who cares about how it affects the rankings, I just wanna hang out in there ALL the time! Haha.

But in all seriousness, I expect it to have a huge impact on recruiters' ratings of Yale SOM. Nothing like environment to encourage happy thoughts. This will have direct effect on one of the rankings (I can't remember which).

So urarunner2, you've got a big choice to make now. How did you rank SOM and Stern for the cgsm? I'm sure I speak for aerien as well that we're rooting for you to come to Yale! :)

The new building is going to be awesome!! I'd be lying if I said it didn't factor into my decision (I really do like buildings...) :)

Yes, @urarunner2 -- come to Yale! My decision actually came down to Yale and NYU so feel free to PM me about it.

That new building is drool worthy.

I honestly don't know where I'm going to go and the larger problem is that I can't attend SOM's Welcome weekend! I'm in a wedding that Saturday in NC and NYU's Welcome weekend is the same time. What I'm thinking of doing is spending a early April weekend at Yale, absorbing the campus, and meeting some 2nd yrs then going to the Friday session of NYU's welcome weekend.

I also need to wait for Columbia to make their decision. It's similar to the IR section - need as many data points as possible in order to make a informed decision. :?

I've had no issues but I was an R1 admit. Since you're cgsm and on a different timeline, perhaps you won't get access until R2 decisions are released at the end of the month? Just a theory... Any cgsm admits get into the 2015 site?
