Don’t worry Naja
It is not necessarily a bad sign. Also there is no update in your application account for interview. You should receive an email from Yale EMBA program with a link to schedule your interview.
According to last year forum, not everyone got their invitations at the same time, some got invitations on later days. Also there is a chance some don't get interview invitation for this round even if you applied for R2. Here is a quote from the admission Director:

"Though each student admitted must complete an interview, not receiving an invitation to interview now does not necessarily mean you will not ultimately be interviewed—and perhaps admitted—at some point in the application season"

Keep the hope up

They should update the status with decision letter on your admission portal if you were rejected or waitlisted. You haven’t received anything means your application is still under review

I don't see any reason they don't send the denial letter if you are really out, unless they are still undecided

I sent an inquiry email and admissions responded with:

"Thanks for your email. At this point, while we are continuing to evaluate applications for admission, we are unable to extend any additional interviews to those who applied in Round 2. We will be in touch with final admissions decisions by mid-March. If you have any questions in the meantime, please let us know."

And after another clarification email.

"It is true that an interview is required to be admitted but we will continue to consider candidates through the decision release date. We’ll be in touch with an update next month and appreciate your patience."

So, I'm still confused but I am also pretty sure that I am out.

After you interview, do you know how long it takes to hear back for a final decision? Thanks

Naja thank you for doing the research on this and sharing it with us. That is definitely a riddle!

Those emails put together could definitely become a very challenging critical reasoning question on the GMAT.

When she says at this point I wonder if that means they are trying to flesh out how many people they are going to accept from the current interviews and if they end up rejecting some of them (or if candidate bows out) that will open up some possibilities?

My best guess... really don't have any idea their approach is very unusual.

Hello Naja, until you hear a hard no there is still a chance, so try not to sweat it too much. Just because you applied in round 2 doesn't mean you'll be interviewed in round 2. I know people applied in round 1 and were eventually waitlisted and interviewed in round 2. Maybe the same will happen with you and you'll be interviewed in round 3?

Stay positive and best of luck!

According tho their website the results for R2 application should be released by March 12. Also, as I reached out to the admission staff today after my interviews they told me I should hear back from them within "Few Weeks".
But according to the comments from R1 applicants, we may expect it earlier than that; maybe in a week or two. Good luck to everyone who applied for R2

OK very embarrassing, mixed this up for the full-time Yale thread. Very relieved.

The setup was apparently was similar to the first round. For Saturday session there were 20 applicants from all three areas of focus (seems there were 20 on Friday too) and divided into two groups of 10. The first group had their 1 hr group discussion and the second group had two 30 min discussion one with admission office staff and one with alumni. Then the two group switched.

Admission office interview: I was asked to start from the beginning, my college time and move on then in between she asked me questions during my story and ended up why typical MBA questions; Why MBA, Why now, Why Yale, etc. FYI, it's not a blind interview, the interviewer already reviewed my application package, essays, etc.

Alumni interview: Pretty conversational. Maybe he talked more than me during the conversation. Gave me a background about himself and his experience at Yale then asked me about my background and again asked why MBA and why Yale. But I feel he wanted to give me a very honest feedback whether and how Yale may help me to achieve my goals. It was more like a friendly conversation.

Group discussion: For me it was a little bit more challenging. They give you a few pages article about an issue and then want you to discuss about it in a group discussion. A program director was leading the conversation and an alumni (or student) was tracking applicants participation. My advice is try to get involve into the conversation before he asks you question, otherwise you may face with a question you're not sure how to deal with it. I think he tried to direct the conversation somehow where people with different background and area of expertise could participate in it somehow.

After the interviews we had lunch with other fellows and a faculty member from the same area of focus. Then we had an option to attend a class.

In general it was a nice experience. Nothing to worry about as long as you are sure why MBA, why now and why Yale.

Best of luck to everyone
