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...


I believe someone asked AdCom that question during R1, and the answer was "no".

Maybe you could ask the other school for an extension?

The admissions letter seems to emphasize that it must be deposited by then... but if any other schools accept me I probably will not ask :oops:

For R1, calls went out day of. Emails came a few hours later.

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.


If the interview went well, I think it's always an advantage to interview with a decision-maker at any school. The Admissions Officers are present at the closed sessions when evaluating apps and can act as advocates for candidates.

In terms of your other question, I guess the one thing you have to think about is what if you get waitlisted. If you get accepted, then moving back to your family business will have had no impact. You got accepted and they're not going to question you. But if you get waitlisted, you'll want to explain any progress you've made since you submitted your application. And if going back to your family business may not seem like and advancement, it may not be in your best interest to do that. Granted, if you have significant leadership/responsibilities at your family business and can spin it as an advancement if you get waitlisted by Yale, then it's not an issue.

Update :

I am following the accepted group on Facebook, looks the the members have increased from 109 to 120. All the new members were added an hour ago. Do you think SOM sent out acceptances from R2 ?

I wonder if those are consortium acceptances. They seem to get their notification earlier than everyone else. @machichi said they found out via telephone calls on the day of in R1. Who knows?

It could also be the R1 waitlisted folks? They might be admitting some of those people before the R2 decision date.

It probably coincides with Consortium admits recently being released more than R2 invites.

Fb is for admitted. The recent jump is from cgsm admits. And I'd say the count is about right for a class size of 250-275 or so.

My analysis ( I could be totally wrong)

Among the 120 members of the Facebook group so far, I believe that NOT everyone of them is matriculating. The group includes all the students who have been accepted to the program. Historically, yield for Yale SOM has been about 45% that would imply about 60 of them have matriculated. Even if the yield has increased to 70%(extreme case) we are looking at 84 students that have matriculated.

Though students who were unlikely to enroll may never have joined the group in the first place. On the other hand not every person who matriculated bothers with the Facebook page.

My speculation is that 1/3 of class gets filled in R1, 1/2 in R2, and 1/6 in R3. We'll never know unfortunately.

The concept of a school being "3 ranks" lower one year 3 higher another is foolish.. it gives the impression that the quality of the institution is fluctuating when in reality it's relatively consistent

Exactly. I guess I'll be buying my copy tomorrow and seeing if SOM's score went from 80.90 to 80.82 (numbers are hypothetical) :P

To give an idea: Class of 2014 group has 289 members, well above the # actually in the class.

To further add to the speculation: there are several current students in Darden's 2015 FB group to answer questions for admitted students. If this is the case for Yale, too, that could explain the group's large size. Personally, I would be inclined to join the admitted student's FB group for any school I was seriously considering even if I wasn't set on the decision (as I did with Darden). But I agree with the earlier post that there are also some '15ers who probably never will join the group that might balance the size. Who knows!

I don't think there are any current students except for some dual degrees (law, health, forestry, etc), but there are some adcom members in the Yale group. Duke's fb numbers are also quite inflated as it seems 30+ people are '14s. They're there to answer questions, but only a handful actually contribute.
