As mentioned above, I believe the "Touch base" mail from SOM is NOT indicative of any decision. If you guys are freaking out, you should definitely call SOM. I am sure they ll tell the same but at the least it will calm ur anxiety.

Weird....

Did you interview in late February? early March? If so, that's probably why you didn't get the e-mail.

Really random question, but did anyone ask an adcom to see if IR scores are being looked at this year in evaluating GMAT scores? On the printed application IR score doesn't appear but on the online form it does.

This is the first year it's available - and only if you took the "New" exam - so I think all schools are just using it as reference and not for a huge evaluative purpose.

Next year, and subsequently each year after until everyone will have to take the new exam, the section will gain more importance as a part of the GMAT score.

Does anyone know why Yale delayed its Round 3 deadline to mid-April? In past, they usually had a mid-march deadline. Is it because they are expecting a lower yield this year? Its confusing why a school will push back its deadline by almost a month.

Deadlines for this application cycle were made about a year ago to date, way before this year's recruiting cycle even began. Schools take into account a variety of factors when deciding on application timelines. I'm not privy to what adcom officers discuss as far as those decisions are concerned, but the decision to move that date - or any other - was one decided awhile ago, not one made after R1 applications were accepted or 3rd party rankings were released.

SOM is going through a lot of changes now with Dean Snyder, the new building, etc so I'm sure it was a thought out, strategic move on their part.

Word. As of last evening, all of my friends know where they're going. I feel left behind :p. The 28th can't come soon enough.

The point is to tell your own personal story. I think it is a pretty straight forward question, just be yourself and do your best!

Chance admits start hearing before the 28th?

Nope, I don't think so. Here's what was included in the email I received last week from the adcom.

"We're writing to remind you that we will release Round 2 admissions decisions on Thursday, March 28. You will hear from us then about your candidacy."

I think the last part of this question is a bit of a leading question. It's pretty clear they don't want you to tell a story and end it with 'Looking back, I did everything perfectly'. They're clearly looking for a bit of reflection and humility and growth.

I agree with the need for reflection/humility, but I actually think this is possible while saying you would make the exact same choice. I had an example where the outcome was very clearcut (i.e. there was no debating whether it could be viewed as a "right" or "wrong" decision-it was clearly "right" based on the outcome), but I initially did not have enough faith in my initial conviction. Thus, my reflection focused on the need for me to have more confidence and willingness to speak up.

Basically, I think there are multiple ways to approach this question - good luck!

I'll second this. I talked about a difficult decision I made that I would definitely do again. The key was that I still learned from it.

Someone said the last interview day is Thursday so if you haven't heard you're likely out of luck.
