The admissions office at Yale School of Management offered an update on Round 1 applications Thursday to let prospective students know that admissions is still in the midst of reading applications and extending interview invitations.
Yale SOM reads through admissions in random order, so if you haven’t heard back yet, hang in there and take comfort in the knowledge that admissions will continue to extend invitations for interviews throughout the round and still has several Round 1 interview slots available.
The Round 2 deadline (January 6, 2011) is fast approaching, and the school strongly encourages applicants to use this time wisely as you finalize all the components of the application during the hectic holiday season.
Here are a handful of resources and events that may help you in this last leg of the application journey:
- Yale SOM will be hosting two industry-focused events: a December 1 Finance at SOM Chat and a December 7 Consulting at SOM Chat.
- On December 3, the Yale SOM Open House offers an opportunity to visit the campus and meet faculty, students, and alumni.
- Listen to a recording of Yale SOM’s September Application Tips Chat (it comes in two parts: a slideshow presentation (pdf) and an accompanying audio (mp3). A copy of yesterday’s application tips chat should be available soon.
- The December issue of the Yale SOM Admissions Newsletter will include an announcement of opportunities to meet with current Yale SOM students in your area over winter break.
