Not gonna lie, the 66.5% employment rate at graduation is a bit scary! Any insight into what this could be attributed to?

Where are you finding this number?

Yale's employment report here (http://mba.yale.edu/MBA/careers/pdf/employment_data.pdf) states at 3 months after graduation, of those seeking employment, 89% of those had received offers...

That is scary and was something I considered when picking schools. At the end of the day it's about how much effort you put into your job search. Would you love it if on campus recruiting showered you with offers? Of course! But if you want to do something that doesn't recruit on campus, then the onus is on you to get an offer where you want to be. Now, that probably won't account for the entire 40% but I'd think it'd account for some. Just my two cents.

From an adcom/recruiting perspective, this could have provided the impetus to hire Booth's head of recruiting. Everyone seems to love her and hopefully she'll work her magic on SOM.

ln0038a - the link to where that 66.5% number is below:
http://gmatclub.com/forum/2014-us-news-business-school-ranking-149042.html

That forum post includes an excel download of the US News 2014 ranking with details on avg. GMAT, acceptance rate, avg. starting salary, avg. undergrad GPA, etc. I totally agree that these full-time employment rates look way off compared to what the Yale SOM page shows. 66.5% would put them at #57 compared to the other schools in this excel file.

Another thing to note: the Yale employment PDF shows median starting salary (100K) + median guaranteed comp (30.75K). This is about 10K higher than the average of 121K shown in the excel file. I understand that median does not equal average, but I wanted to point that out. All I'm saying is that the data looks a little strange.

Did everyone just get the "touching base" email from SOM? Scared the bejeezus out of me! Then realized that Yale was just kindly reminding me to wait another 2.5 weeks for a decision :/

I was hoping to find out maybe couple days before the decision date but I guess we will all have to wait until decision date!

Another tidbit to add: I've noticed SOM personalizes their emails to an extent, which I thought was a nice touch. For R1 at least, if you interviewed early on, you got an email that started with "it's been a while since you interviewed....". If you had to reschedule your interview due to Hurricane Sandy, the email thanked you for your flexibility during that time. If you had just interviewed, then your email was a more generic "thanks for coming to campus..."

I'm not sure what's up with the R2 emails since at least one person didn't get one. Perhaps that has to do with Skype vs in-person interviews? Or it could just be that some admissions officers sent them and others didn't (again, not sure how that would happen but we've all seen stranger things happen when it comes to adcom communications)? Just my 2 cents.

I missed my original on-campus interview due to snow storm Nemo and had to do a Skype interview, but I got the generic thanks for interviewing email. I guess no personalization for R2? haha either way.. can't wait till decision date!

It's also possible they have some cutoff date for sending that kind of e-mail, obviously if you interviewed recently they wouldn't send you an e-mail saying "it's been a while"... hope that helps :) The 28th cant come soon enough Yale is my dream school :-D GL TO ALL.
