One of the most exciting parts of my job is calling all of our admitted students to tell them they’ve been admitted to the Yale School of Management – and yes, we do call every admitted student to tell them personally! Last week we had the great fun of calling all our Round 3 admitted students (while munching on chocolate cupcakes prepared from scratch by Bruce DelMonico’s 11-year old daughter), which means that this week—it’s time to start recruiting the next class: the Class of 2017!
