Guys,

if I could give you a piece of advice, try not to think too much about the stats, especially one or two days before the decision (eg, how many they might admit, what are your "statistical" chances to get in, when should you expect the call")...

From my own experience, it's stressful, doesn't help and worse: you'll get so anxious that it will make it hard to concentrate on your job.

I've been waitlisted twice so far. The first time I had a very tough situation ( I was checking email every second... same to GC... etc.) . And I realized it was a huge waste of time.

The second time, I was more relaxed. Still anxious and wanting to know the result, but I kept calm overall. I did check GC to see if there was an admit, but that was the only info I needed (I was not looking at where admits were, what are their backgrounds/scores...).

Seriously, at this point there is nothing you can do and being that anxious will only hurt yourself. Relax and see if there is any other website you like (gamespot is great :grin:)

From calculation: Last year we know SOM had 2,823 applications resulting in a 19% acceptance rate (536 admits) and a yield of 46% (249 people in the class of 2014).

"Yale School of Management's M.B.A. program fell 9.6% to 2,554 this year" - WSJ

ChessMaster1 : I truly hope you were correct but the source you pulled up from WSJ was actually for 2012 (class of 2014).

This is also in line with the article posted on PAQ
http://poetsandquants.com/2012/09/17/ap ... s-schools/

The applications for 2013(Class of 2015) have increased across schools.

I don't think so, for both R1 2013 and R2 2012 the calls started on the day of the decision.

For Round 1, the official scheduled time was by 5pm est, but I believe most accepted people were notified by phone (with a congratulatory email from an adcom member) earlier in the day. Best of luck to all the Round 2 applicants tomorrow!

I received my status update for R1 around 5:30 ET. Phone calls started going out around noon or 1pm ET or so (at least for domestic applicants), and as haxx mentioned, adcom sent out congratulatory emails a little after that (this was particularly useful if you forgot your cell phone, the battery died, etc). Adcom did leave voicemails if you didn't pick up the phone, so hopefully that appeases some of the worries.

Good luck tomorrow to all the R2 applicants and R1 waitlisters!

And, so you can mark your calendars (R1 matriculants & future R2/WL acceptees) - US regional receptions are being held during the weeks of April 1 and April 8. Registration is up in the admit portal :)

I am a waitlister from R1, and still waiting for good news from Yale today.

As long as I remember correctly, admits on R1 in Asia got the call at 8ish PM which means very early in the morning in EST; he(or she) got the call from Yale adcom(or alumni?) in Asia. Speaking of myself, email was in my inbox with status change notification around 4 or 5 AM next day.

Good luck for all R2 candidates and R1 waitlisters!

GOOD LUCK to everyone today!

We are all rooting for you.

Unfortunately, today is also our student government presidential elections, in which yours truly has to give a speech, so I won't be able to join you in real time celebration and commiseration. So you'll also have to take my "congratulations" early as well. Looking forward to talking to some of you on the phone, and seeing all of you at Welcome Weekend.

Also - expect there to be a gap between the initial international calls and the domestic/US time zone calls. Last year started around 3:30p EST.

Asia calls started around 6:30 am ET during R1 (about an hour ago now). Not sure if that will continue for R2 but we'll find out soon enough.

Good luck today!! I hope all your phones ring with someone calling from a 203 area code.

Every time my phone rings, I skip a beat! I'm sure my callers would have noticed the irritation in my voice.
