Looks like the picture + email activation got moved to the end of April. This kind of makes me sad.... (how cheesy am I?!)

@Ugeman -- were you able to fill out your student verification form? Perhaps call adcom; it could be a technical issue?

Still no dice for me... I emailed the AdCom to ask about it. The link is still unclickable. I hope they didn't give my spot away!

Pretty sure if you can see that page, they haven't given away your spot just yet. Now, I don't know what will happen come Thursday ;)

yale som interview acceptance rate :
Tuesday morning....trying really hard to kill some time and decided to pull up the stats for R1 2013.

* Stats based on "Latest GMAT Club Member Profile Updates" table page 1 of this thread.

After filtering all the duplicate entries, it looks like

Interview and Admitted : 26

Interviewed and Wait-listed : 16 ( WTH :shock: )

Interviewed and Ding : 3

Interviewed and did not update : 11

Ignoring the 11, Interviewed and no update population

Probability of Admit after Interview = 58% ( in line with Bruce " and a little more than half of those interviewed are ultimately offered a place in the class ")

Probability of Wait-List after Interview = 36% ( this high percentage bothers me the most )

Probability of Ding after Interview = 7%

Hi All,

Does anyone have insight into how competitive R3 is and whether any scholarship funding is still available? I have a full scholarship offer at Vanderbilt but their recent tumble in the rankings is slightly concerning and I've grown increasingly interested in the raw cases Yale uses.

Stats: 3.88 GPA (dual honors programs), 1490 GRE, 5 years WE in healthcare & utilities consulting, a stint with Americorps, taking GMAT in April.

Thanks for your help!

Dings will go up and waitlist should go down, if that makes you feel any better :lol:

It's competitive in any round, and round 3 may be the most competitive. There is some, but less, scholarship money available.

You won't know unless you try!

Also, your GRE score is strong, why take the GMAT?

Hmm... I see the line item you are referencing but mine isn't a link (nothing to click). Does this appear after the Re-Vera process?


Not sure. Maybe having the link to fill out the form is the unofficial notice that ReVera's check is complete? Anyone else have the link or not?


I have the link. Don't go to the Next Steps page though, because there won't be a link there. Go instead to the home page/Enroll Dashboard, and then scroll down and click on March.

My problem is I recently renewed my passport and it won't come out 'til April Fool's, so I wouldn't know what my new passport number is. I wonder who I can contact regarding this, or if it's ok to accomplish the form after March 31st...

T - 1. Jangling nerves and an inability to focus on anything else! I wonder if Yale calls international students a day earlier, like some of these other colleges do.
