Bruce DelMonico, assistant dean for admissions at Yale School of Management, has previewed the new essay question that will be a part of the fall 2017 MBA application. The Yale SOM admissions committee would like you to:
Describe the biggest commitment you have ever made. (500 words maximum)
This seemingly simple and straightforward prompt, DelMonico says, was developed in collaboration with Yale SOM professor of organizational behavior Amy Wrzesniewski.
The SOM will continue using a slide-scale application fee, which ties your application fee to your total annual compensation, for the upcoming year, DelMonico adds.
“The sliding-scale fee helps us attract diverse applicants from all over the world, including those from countries where pay scales are different from the United States and from industries where compensation varies,” he writes.
The 2016-2017 application goes live in mid-July. For more information, please visit the Yale SOM admissions website.
