I interviewed this past Friday with a very engaging and personable 2nd year. He made the experience enjoyable and fun for both parties. I have to say, though, it was a bit odd sitting in the room with like 20 other people waiting to be called to the gallows. As one person in the room put it, "It's like we are waiting for the Reaping."

So to the rest of those waiting, "MAY THE ODDS BE EVER IN YOUR FAVOR!!" :-D


Agreed! I was in a room with a number of other applicants, and I was actually the very last person called... which was sort of nerve-wracking! That said, I truly appreciated the centralized, organized nature of things! Glad you had a fun interviewer! (Mine was a bit difficult...)

Hi guys,

I had an interview this morning with Bruce Delmonico (his first interivew as part of his India interview tour).

Just wanted to know from the experienced Yalies on if there is a huge advantage to personally interviewing with Bruce as compared to say a 2nd year student? The interview itself went off well as we spoke more about my transitions and goals and professiona achievements.

Also, I am looking to move back to my family business to support my brother. Do you guys think it is fine to do so now after my interview or will there be questions on this and viewed unfavorably at the time of my admissions (hoping that there will be one).

Any help would be appreciated on this.

It seems like the off-campus skype interviews are with admissions committee member. Does anyone know if this is always true? or can it be with a current student?

My Skype interview was with a 2nd year student about a month ago. I suppose it also depends on whether students are available in a given period or not (exams, breaks etc.).

This is probably fine if you were to be admitted as long as you can explain it when it comes time for the background check, should they ask for updated information.

The only thing, imo, to be cautious about would be if you do not gain admission and matriculate to a school this year. Does working with your family business align with your long-term goals? Does it fit with your story/application for next year or the year after if you re-apply for your MBA? If so, then do it. If not, then you have some things to think about.

I am applying to Yale in Round 3. Does anyone know what Yale really means when they say that "they look at all GMAT scores"?

Do they average scores or just see the trend etc. I have taken it few times (5+), so wondering if I should write an optional essay about it.

Ok guys, R1 deposit deadline was at noon ET today. Do we have anymore GmatClubbers matriculating? :-D

Also, has anyone received confirmations about their deposit? I'd hate for something to go wrong and to get that scary "your offer has been rescinded" notice (like someone who missed the deadline did in the Columbia thread!)

Lastly, good luck to all the R2s and R1 waitlisters waiting to hear back! It's March now, so the clock is ticking!

I got nervous about not receiving confirmation but then I saw it within my application update. If you log into the application you'll see that there are two letters from Bruce, one congratulating you and another letting you know that they're reserving your spot.


Ah! Got it -- thanks :)

Friends,

I am planning to apply in R3. I would like to know about possibilities of getting admitted in R3 (is it substantial or is it almost 0). Also just in case, if i don't get in this time and apply in next year EA/R1, is Yale a re-applicant friendly school ? someone told me Duke is

Any news from current Yale SOM students as to the estimated class size for Fall 2013 entry?

I could imagine it to be bigger than previous years because of the new campus, but the idea that it'll open several months after classes begin leads me to think they might not significantly increase class size this year...

Aerien, look! I changed my status to Matriculating! :)

When I was on campus they mentioned they were increasing enrollment until they reached 350 and giving themselves until 2017 to do so. The class of 2013 was 227, 2014 was 249. They'll probably continue to grow pretty steadily, meaning our class will be somewhere around 275.

(Congrats on going blue! woohoo!)

Go Blue! Oh wait, that's a different school...

We have 26 admits here to date, but only 10 have changed their status to matriculating. I wonder if the Facebook page is a better indication of the number of people who have confirmed.

The fb group is a better indicator of number of acceptances (for any school); Yale's link is in the first post of this thread.
