Can I request to be put in math camp? My GMAT suggests that I don't know math, haha.


I know some people who asked to attend, even though they weren't officially invited. As long as there's room (and you show interest), I don't think they mind. If you're attending Welcome Weekend, ask someone in admissions then to be sure.

For current Yalies, I have an interesting/odd question -- what awards are given out at graduation?
I ask because I have found it to be quite fun to see what awards schools give out at their graduations -- I feel like it really shows what the school values in its graduates... it is really interesting to watch as some schools give out lots of finance awards and others give more culture awards -- I like seeing how the schools recognize the graduates!
I know most schools have the academic awards for the top students, but sometimes there are service awards, school culture awards, innovation, etc. What awards does SOM give out at graduation?

This is entirely a post for @OhDenny! I've heard there's a 2nd year trip the week before graduation & other fun things planned, but that's the extent of my knowledge.

Holy cow, you guys. I was so excited to meet you all this weekend, and I am so happy that you were all AMAZING. 2016 is shaping up to be a spectacular class. I hope you do reach out with any questions you might have, but all-in-all, I am jealous I won't get to spend another 2 years with all of you.

Anyone went to Winter Welcome and can share your experience? I saw photos in the FB group and it looked so fun. I'm sad to be half a world away... :(

Hello all,

First of all I would like to congratulate each of you for getting acceptance from such an amazing MBA program and school.

I am planing to apply YALE SOM in fall 2014. I am not sure whether here is the right place to ask questions but I am just thinking that the one who already have made my dream real is the one who can give true answers. May be it will be better to build a little background about myself. I have 3,5 years work experience in Deloitte as auditor , Coca-Cola and P&G as an Financial Analyst. I have been working in IKEA as business controller for 3 years and in the beginning march I am going to be appointed as Finance&Operations manager. I have graduated from Economics Department of one of the top 3 universities in Turkey with GPA 3,16. I know it is low as compared to school median but I have a valid story behind it :) I have not taken a GMAT score yet and I am planing to get a score around 700-710 in June latest. In addition to that, I am contributing to volunteer activities in UN and Losev (Foundation for Children with Leukemia). I am also board member of a non-governmental political organization, Young Politicians Association. Here is my question.

What should I do to get acceptance to YALE? I know the answer is more or less the same for each top b-school, but I want to learn it "specifically" for YALE. It's history, it's contribution to politics, economics and it's ability to create leaders to shape the world is like magnet for me. I started to communicate with admission team and I am going to participate in an event in my home country, Turkey, in following days. However, your truelife experiences can not be compared with any written suggestion.

I am really so happy for all you who made their dream real.. I hope we will meet in the same campus one day!!

They haven't given out invitation for Math Camp yet, but contact admissions and let them know you are interested. I asked during Winter Welcome and that is the advice I was given.

Just returned from SOM and loved the new building. IF I am lucky enough to get admitted, does anyone know when the admitted students weekend(s) will be in Spring?

May 1st - 4th. It's going to be a doozy, so for those of you who are admitted and on the fence about it right now, I'd go ahead and book your train/plane tickets. It'll be Winter Welcome^nth.

Good luck!

Sounds awesome!

Also I was amazed by the sheer number of students I saw at the interview "Super Day." Do you think the stats mentioned in a few places that 25% of applicants are interviewed, 50-60% of interviewees offered admission, still holds true? Just based on rough math it seems that either SOM is interviewing more than 25% or admitting more than 50-60%... Any thoughts?
