I feel that I must really have rubbed them the wrong way or bombed my interview, which feels deeply personal -- more personal than if it was due to some objective measure. I mean, I am a URM, LGBT, test scores comfortably above SOM's averages, an inconsistent UG record at a top-50 school that was tempered by a good record at an Ivy League grad school with 5/6 years WE (depending on how you count it) in which I progressed as far as I could within my field (no career ladder in teaching). Again, I am BY NO MEANS a perfect candidate, but I don't know why in R1 I went from waitlist-able, to reject-able when I was told I had nothing at all to work on.


I'm sorry to hear that - it's definitely a challenging outcome. You gotta let the dust settle, figure out if there's anything you could
Change in your strategy, action it and then move on. You can't change their decision.

Curious to hear what your extra curriculars are like? I'm LGBT as well, and I think it was a strength of my application as I have really strong extra curriculars in that space (eg i wrote about LGBT inclusion as my biggest commitment)

I am deliriously happy about receiving an offer, don't get me wrong, but one quick clarifying question. If there was no mention of a scholarship during my phone call or in my offer letter, can I safely assume I did not get a scholarship offer? For those of you who did, was it mentioned in your offer letter?

Congrats to everyone who heard good news yesterday!!! Go celebrate! @MrAmerica, if you didn't hear on the call about $ typically means no $.

For those of you on the WL, there's still a ton of time in this process. Keep your head up. There's a ton of posts from years past on logical next steps to take, but take some time first for yourself over the holidays.

To those of you without the news you wanted, take a moment to breathe and process. This is just one school. There are many out there. Reflect on what worked and what didn't so you can put forth an even better app -- which I consider to be one that is more true to yourself -- towards another school for R2/R3, and keep your fingers crossed for the rest of your R1 results.

Jeez man. You’ve posted this in 30 different threads.
One thing that will really help in the application process is “patience”. Wait for all the admission consultants to respond to you.

Also, read some other profile reviews and you’ll also develop a better sense of where you stand currently.

700 for an Indian applicant is low for Top 15 US schools.

Hi Stoiczoan,

I am really sorry mate. I am still very new to GMAT Club. I didn't realize my posts were against GMAT Club posting rules. Got slightly misguided because of some info on the forum. Have deleted most of the posts. Kindly remove if there is anything still left. Will make sure the same is not repeated anytime in future. Please forgive for any inconvenience caused.

Sounds like you're a strong candidate. I wouldn't let this get you down. On paper, my profile is much weaker than yours and had you asked anyone familiar with the MBA application process, they'd probably favor your profile over mine. Unless your resume is absolutely gold plated and diamond studded, admissions is a game of luck. A friend of mine was rejected by a handful of schools without interview, including Yale, but was given a full scholarship at Booth.

Take some time off to reflect. Talk to others and look for weaknesses in your application. Don't give up & keep applying.

Humility, empathy, self-awareness, perfect example of implicit leadership! I can see why you are matriculating from Yale Wilch.

Hey alex3215! I don't believe there's any such pre-requisite for being accepted to Yale. In fact, 45% of SOM's class of 2019 are international passport holders. You can check out the entire class profile here: https://som.yale.edu/programs/mba/admis ... ss-profile

You will need to fill an online application form which you can access here: https://admissions.som.yale.edu/apply/

Hope this helps!

Can anyone else confirm if there is grade non-disclosure at Yale? My research suggests not / a hybrid system has been implemented whereby the top two grades are disclosed on your transcript (ie still disclosed partially) but not others.

But Wilch, as a current student has confirmed that Yale does have grade non-disclosure. Which is (good) news to me!

I’m not sure what the current policy is but I do remember reading about it because it was under debate recently at Yale. Usually you can find the grading policy in the student handbook for the school though. Also a current student would probably be the next most accurate source of information.

Current first-year at SOM here. You are correct--the grading policy can be found here (Ctrl+F for "Grades"): http://bulletin.printer.yale.edu/htmlfi ... ogram.html

Only High Honors (top 10%) and Honors (next 25%) are noted on transcripts.

I had a question on the application.

On the Activities page, I need to list out two undergrad activities and two post-undergrad activities.

I have a post-graduate degree as well. Where do the activities from there go - in the undergrad section or the post-undergrad? From what it looks like to me, by post-undergrad, Yale means 'while working'. Or does it?
