So I was granted a scholarship but also applied through the consortium... does anyone else have a similar case? I'm wondering if it is because our decision is due before the consortium fellowships are announced...

Same here. I am wondering if the deposit date can be pushed back for consortium applicants.

Edit: I asked to have deposit date pushed back and was granted an extension.

Did you mark them as your first choice? They had the option of telling those who marked them as #1 if they got the Consortium Fellowship on the day of admission. If you marked them as #1 and didn't get the fellowship... you may not have gotten it. But if you marked them as #2 and beyond, you might need to wait until March.

I am just hypothesizing on all of this, but it is how my rational works, haha.

Sooooo I am kind of being an eager beaver here, but... are there any pre-orientation programs? I am thinking kind of like Kellogg's KWEST program. I would love to do something fun with some of my classmates before starting with the chaos and after leaving my job.

Has anyone heard of any trips or activities that get us to meet some others? If not, I might just have to organize something...

You would have thought an admission to SOM would have finally made me productive at work again... but no, no it hasn't.

Hah! You've turned the corner and can now only think about all the cool things you'll do starting next summer ;)

For my year there were no official trips like the ones that some other schools do (KWEST, RandomWalks, etc), but people did use the facebook group and admitted student weekends to coordinate trips. I'm not sure if they're changing that for the Class of 2016, but @OhDenny might know if there are any nudges in that direction or not. And yes, if you plan on going somewhere, do post on the facebook group and I'm sure others will want to join you!

Yes, I definitely have already turned the corner. It is dangerous for work concentration!
I would love it if there was some sort of pre-orientation trip (hey any rising 2nd years, wanna lead us?!). I am even already calling it the "Yale SOMmer Trip." You saw what I did there, right? "SOMmer?" Haha.

This is really interesting to me. I don't have any idea where to begin, however. Would you be able to send me an overview of how it's structured/budgets/logistics at other schools? Will definitely bring it up with Student Gov and the Administration.

Having never been to another school, I am not 100% how the internal workings go... but I can use my Google-fu to bring up some additional information:
"....brings together incoming students through a variety of adventure, cultural, social and community service activities. The program introduces students to a core group of friends..."
"The second year students run the program in conjunction with [the] administration, organizing trips to some of the world’s most spectacular destinations..."
"Last year over 80 percent of the incoming students and many of their significant others participated... In addition to the standard, week-long trip, a variety of trips are offered to suit students' situations and preferences, including family trips, domestic trips and shorter trips."
Trips take place the week before pre-term orientation
Trips are planned and led by 4-5 second year students

... I will PM you if I find more information. :)

For Kellogg's KWEST trips, there is a list of trips and notes about whether the trip will be more culturally-focused, relaxing, party atmosphere, etc. Then, people rank their top choices through an online system. Would be pretty neat if Yale offered something similar.

So, I'm definitely going to bring it up with my colleagues in Student Government and with the Administration. Three things:

1. Reading about these makes me wistful for the time right before orientation, when I was excited and nervous all at once.
2. These are actually quite similar to trips that are taken over spring break pre-International Experience, so there may be some overlap there.
3. Doing something like this may conflict with the academic calendar, so there'll need to be really tight coordination. I'm not sure it could happen by this summer, but I'd encourage you to start thinking now how you could propose this and secure funding and administrative support to get this together. SOM is definitely a self-starty type of place, and this would definitely be the type of initiative that would perk someone's ears up.

Come find me at Winter Welcome or Welcome Weekend, and we can talk further.

I'd even be into a camping trip or something dorky like that. Given the fact that Yale does have a required international experience, I don't think we'd necessarily have to plan a second international trip (although I still totally support the original idea and would definitely be interested). But anyway, I just think it would be cool to have some type of pre-orientation activity where people can bond in smaller groups before the busy-ness of orientation starts.

Btw, what is orientation like at SOM?

Resurrecting this thread....

Orientation is a blast! Highlights: meeting everyone (and immediately forgetting people's names, unless you are @OhDenny and are talented like that), seeing cool campus sites (the top of the bell tower, the planetarium, architecture tours, museums, etc), and the best part in my book: private party on the floor of the NYSE (!!!).

A good time all around. One thing I would do differently would be to take advantage of the many campus sites/tours as I could have; you think you'll have lots of time to do that since you'll be at Yale for 2 years, but your time fills up fast once the year gets going!

Just to add onto this - Orientation is the sprint that prepares you for the marathon. 1st semester is rough on everyone, so orientation is a good primer. You can also have some input into what goes on at Orientation. Come March-ish, after R2 decisions are released, the SOM Student Government will be releasing regular digests on the 2016 Facebook page with information about SOM, Orientation, and many other topics. That's when your feedback comes into play!

Also - if you're taking math camp, (which is invitation-only, and you probably would have heard by now), that starts 2 days before Orientation. Keep in mind that our Orientation is quite early, (2nd week of August), so plan to quit your jobs well in advance so you can get to see your friends, relax, and eat your favorite hometown treats before a long hiatus.

Speaking of math camp, since I haven't been invited, how intense is the math that we'll be expected to know for our first year courses. I took calc and stats in college, but that was several years ago and I've forgotten a lot. Math camp seems like it would've been a nice refresher. Will I be at a disadvantage, or should I try to brush up on these skills before school starts?

I last took calc in high school and have never taken stats or micro. I didn't do stellar in my first year, nor did I fail out. Math camp is really for those who are afraid of failing out. My guess, however, is that if you took calc and stats a few years ago, and did decently, you're already at the 60th percentile.

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