This thread is very quiet, but updating to say I was accepted from the WL yesterday (there is hope). I saw two other people on ClearAdmit with a similar status. For anyone reading this now/in the future, I know how exhausting the waiting process can be.

Steps I took: Accepted into a joint-degree at Yale and let AdCom know. Spoke to a professor from the program and mentioned that in my update (which was about 6 sentences total). DID NOT retake the GMAT/GRE, write an additional essay, etc. I sent three emails to AdCom in total. Some of the advice I've seen seems ridiculously extensive and downright bothersome to the admissions team. Good luck to everyone wherever you find yourself. So thrilled and privileged to be attending SOM.


That's awesome. Congrats.

If you don't have much to say, I wouldn't bother adcom. People get accepted off wait lists without doing anything at all, only waiting (really).

If you want to do something to show your interest then If you're near campus, do a tour. Go to an event near you if there is one of you want (hey, there's usually free food at least and maybe you can ask some questions about the wait list). Not mandatory by any means. Just some ideas.

Yeah sounds reasonable. I actually live in New Haven and interviewed at SOM. I guess there's not much I can do for now!


Me too!

Hi All, Received an email this afternoon from Yale asking if I would like to remain on the waitlist -- unlike the first time around, where there was a check-box inside the portal, it appears that this time we reply directly to the Adcom member. Anybody else get this? Thoughts on whether this went to all waitlisted students or is a good sign of coming off the waitlist?

I got it as well. My guess is they sent this to everyone on the waitlist, but I could be wrong. They probably just started to review waitlisted apps now that round 3 apps are in, and I assume we'll start seeing movement in a week or two (for better or for worse).

Was sent out to everyone on waitlist.

Do you guys mind sharing if anyone has written back to Adcom with additional letter/essay after being waitlisted...Also any suggestions on what to be included in same...

I sent in a couple paragraphs shortly after getting waitlisted giving more detail on why SOM and how it relates to my career goals. Other than that haven't sent in anything.

Keep on waiting if you feel SOM is right for you. It's a tough long wait but it can be worth it. Competition is high this year (and every year it seems) but I've heard this year the is pretty tight. If you've made it this far, you really are super super close.

I was waitlisted R2 and received notice yesterday that I'm still on waitlist for R3. I live in New Haven, so it'd be easy to attend even with minimal notice. fingers crossed!

Does anyone have an idea of how many applicants they keep in the wait list at this late a stage? I thought I saw that the deposit deadline was on 5/30 (could be mistaken - the admissions site has already been updated to reflect next year's crop of deadlines) so I assume an final WL admits will come in the next few weeks if at all.

Not holding my breath - planning on reapplying next year R1 (was a late R3 application), just curious.

I don't think any of us know exact numbers, but I've heard that this year's wait list is smaller than in prior years' lists. If you have the option to stay on it and wait it out, it might work out for you -- and if you are let go from it, know that you were very very close. I'd assume you'd have a pretty good chance next year then based on 1) your continued interest in the school, provided you put in a strong app and 2) your increased/improved (?) work experience based on the natural progression of your career over the past year+ of time

Same exact boat here. Round 3 applicant waitlisted and with the same questions. aerien -- thanks for that insight. I am really hoping to be accepted from the WL, but if I am not, I am hoping to convert my R3 WL to a R1 Acceptance. :-)

Good luck to all those who, like me, are in limbo!

Congratulations, nathank!

Question for anyone (aerien?): I know that WL applicants can be accepted from the WL as late as early August, but at what point in the summer do the chances of getting an acceptance call radically drop? Note that this is my only biz school prospect (for 2017 intake) as I applied to only three schools, all somewhat on a whim in R3 (I intended orginally to wait until the 2018 intake), and I was rejected after interviews from the other two. So my situation is somewhat different than many others on the WL in that I am unsure whether I will continue to work next year or attend business school. I'd imagine most other WL applicants have made deposits at other schools and are, therefore, uncertain about where they will attend, but not about whether they will attend business school in the fall.

My boss, who wrote my LOR, has been understandably very persistent in asking when I will know for sure whether I am returning in the fall to work (I'm a teacher, so I'm currently on break). I explained to her -- I think correctly -- that my chances are pretty slim, and that I'll likely continue at my school for one more year. So, again, at what point should I essentially give up on any prospects of being admitted in this cycle? Also, historically, does SOM release/reject candidates from the WL on a rolling basis in the summer that anyone knows of?

Thanks for any insight.

For what it's worth, I was called and told that the admissions team was reviewing the waitlist, and wanted to know if I would accept admission if offered. I asked for a day to get back to the team, and called and left a voicemail for the adcom the next day. A few hours later, the adcom returned my call and offered me admission.

Did you get a call like that? If all waitlisted applicants did, then I wouldn't put too much stock into it, but if not, perhaps it's a sign that you're close to admission.

To be honest, I had already lost hope, it was a very pleasant surprise!

Thanks, nathank. No such call for me. Given that you got the offer the next day, though, it doesn't seem as though that was a mass call that only applicants who were still under serious consideration received. I'd guess that WL'ers would only get a call of that type as space becomes available (i.e. when people renege on their admissions offers for whatever reason).

Really wanted to make it happen this cycle, but not very optimistic. This was perfect timing for me in terms of life circumstances. I am really regretting not applying in an earlier round! Such is life, though. Everything happens for a reason, as they say.

congrats nathank! I haven't received any calls, and I haven't received any email updates or updates in the portal either. I do know from the clearadmit livewire that it appears a slew of WL'ers got let go last week, so sounds like they are definitely cutting the list. Still not holding my breath but good to know that I'm still in it!
