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!).


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!

I wonder how the new building will effect the rankings in a couple of years.

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. :?

Also, is anyone else having problems logging into the Class of 2015 webpage?

I've contacted Adcom and IT and they don't know when the problem will be fixed...

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?

Hi everyone! First time poster. To answer the above question, I'm a CGSM admit and I'm able to access the site. Urarunner2 I think you've done the right thing reaching out to the Adcom and IT. I'm sure they will have the issue resolved well before any of the important dates (i.e. R2 Enrollment Decision Date on May 1). Hopefully I will see you all at the Welcome Weekend!

I've had a few issues this week. I emailed the adcom and they responded right back. I was able to get on after I left my computer alone for a bit... but they are aware / working on it. Glad to know I'm not the only one with an issue! :)

I don't think he was talking about the published yield metric specifically.. more along the lines of the potential psychological impact of seeing Yale drop out of the top ten. Some people making school decisions might look at the updated ranking and decide not to go there.. which could lead Yale to opening up more spots to reach their class targets. It sounds ridiculous but believe me I've seen people make school decisions before based on that "top ten" mentality.

Silly R2s making decisions based on rankings. We R1s can't change our minds unless we want to lose our money, not that we would change our minds anyways ;) I'm at least completely sold regardless of what the ranking is.

However that's just one variable.. there's lot of other variables at play including the new building :) , student culture, general upward trajectory of the Yale SOM brand, etc.

Does anyone know if Yale starts calling admitted applicants a couple of days before the deadline? I actually have a deposit for one school due on the 27th of March lol... This won't be an issue if I hear positive news from a couple of other schools in the next couple of weeks...
