I did my interview with SOM, and it went well. I interviewed with an AD, and he was very responsive in email and "looks forward to staying in touch with me".

I am trying to gauge if that is the normal attitude of interviewers, or if this signals that i did well.

My question is to people who applied to SOM before this Round 2:
1) Were you accepted / declined / waitlisted?
2) What was the reaction of school, ADs, alumni, post interview?

I was admitted to Yale SOM in round 1 (Class of 2018). Congrats on your interview!!

For what it's worth, at every school where I interviewed, including the one that denied me, I got this same response from my interviewer. I'm not sure I would take it at more than face value, but it's not a discouraging sign. The waiting game is the toughest part, but at least there's nothing [controllable] left to stress over. Best wishes and I hope that I'll be seeing you on campus this fall! :)

To clarify, did your interviewer e-mail you after the interview, or did you e-mail him first?

I interviewed at two other schools so far, my Yale interviewer was the first to initiate e-mail contact post interview, so I wondered about this myself. I thought it was probably just Yale culture.

No I emailed him first. Was yours a student or adcom?

This is the type of thing I was wondering: What are the reactions of interviewers* to the people who do really well in the process?

It also seems like Yale culture would provoke that sort of thing.

I interviewed with a current student on campus. I was also there during the first set of round 2 on campus interviews, and the current student e-mailed me like two hours after the interview... I definitely appreciated it, but looking at it from his perspective, since I was part of the first set of interviews I'm not putting too much weight on that because he was still 'fresh' and not worn down from the process. Basically, if I was in his shoes I probably would have done the same thing with my first set of interviewees, regardless of how much I liked them. :)

My advice is to not read into anything and live under a rock until final decisions come out. There's nothing else you can do to effect your admissions decision... I loved my experience at Yale and had to avoid logging into this forum for two weeks after my interview to avoid overthinking it and stressing myself out :P .
