My guess is Yale is much more competitive this year - maybe another 25~30% rise in applicants?

Rejected without interview yesterday. Applied in R2. White male from DC, 7 years consulting experience, 3.6 / 700. Not a great cycle for me so far. Still holding out hope for my remaining schools (including my two top choices) though.

Good luck madvillain. Not a great cycle for me either. Hopefully, some schools will come through for us.

Based on previous year's applicant roster post on this forum, appears last year they invited 38%/35% of applicants to interview in R1/R2 respectively, while this year, numbers are down to 28%/25% respectively. I'd say this is quite significant.

Assuming the total # invites is kept the same from last year (~1060 invites total across all rounds based on 60% pass rate after interview and 50% enrollment rate), they must be expecting slightly short of 4000 applicants total across all rounds. I believe the past year they had ~2700 applicants, so they must be seeing either a huge increase in overall app# and/OR alternatively they are expecting a higher enrollment rate this year that they are extending less invites overall (I believe enrollment rate jumped from low/mid 40% to low 50% this past year). For example, if they're now expecting 55% yield and 60% pass rate after interview, then they still would've received ~3700 apps: still a significant increase in app #. A positive indicator for the program regardless and tougher competition for all :(

Good luck everyone!

Stay positive, Yale's yield is roughly 50%. That means you have a solid chance of getting admitted off the W/L.

With that said, how did your interview go?

I went to the campus for my interview and was quite satisfied as interviewer mentioned that she was impressed. She even showed me the photographs of the place she comes from. I somehow believe it was not the interview that got me waitlisted..probably some other aspect of my application.
My GPA is definitely very low that could be one reason..

Yes, I am also banking on Yale's low yield :)

The SOM website indicates that Consortium applicants can expect to hear back regarding admission by tomorrow (3/10) 5pm EST.
