With the New Year well into its third week, it's time to start making good on one of my important New Year's resolutions: to be a more regular contributor to this blog. And especially since my diet and exercise resolutions didn't last past January 2, this is one resolution that needs to stick. By announcing here, in writing, that I will blog at least once every two weeks in 2012, I'm hoping to create a little forced accountability (more so than that still-unused gym membership).

Technology abounds here in New Haven! Although perhaps not the first place people think of when they think of tech hot spots, with the wealth of pharma and biotech firms in the region (drawn in large part by Yale and its strength in the bio-sciences), the Science Park incubator a few blocks from Yale SOM, and the many technology-related ventures connected to Yale (such as Yale's Office of Cooperative Research, the tech transfer arm of the University that patents and commercializes Yale research, and with which Yale SOM students are frequently involved), there's quite a lot happening in the tech space in and around New Haven.

Classes began this week for the Class of 2013. It's always wonderful to see a class come together here on campus, and this year is no different. The 229 students who make up the Class of 2013 are remarkably accomplished and impressive in a host of ways, and the way in which they have jelled as a group even this early in their first semester is a real pleasure to watch. To give a better sense of them, we've posted some statistics and facts about the class on our website.

Although campus is quiet right now with students away on Spring Break -- and traveling around the world on their International Experience trips and other journeys -- things are very busy here in the Admissions Office. There are less than 24 hours before our Round 3 application deadline, which closes at 5pm Eastern Time on Thursday, March 17. At the same time, we are continuing to review Round 2 applications in advance of next Friday's decision notification date. We will release a handful of decisions before next Friday, but the vast majority of decisions will go out then.

Now that roughly a month has passed since our first application deadline, I thought it would be a good time to give a quick update on where we stand in the process. We're still very much in the midst of reviewing applications and sending out interview invitations. At this point, we've extended roughly two-thirds of the invitations that we will ultimately send out for the round. Although this means that the majority of invitations have already gone out, it also means that we still have many more left to extend.

Stay tuned for more information on our upcoming events and other resources for enhancing your candidacy, such as our online Application Tips Chat. More to come soon . . . .

Things have been a bit quiet here at SOM recently. Last week was exam period, so students were hunkered down in exam mode, and this week the second years are on break before the begin of Fall 2 on Monday. The first years are currently on campus for their Managing Groups & Teams class, though, which means there's some activity right now -- just not as much as normal. Things will be back in full swing come Monday. That's not to say there hasn't been activity here at SOM. The Admissions Office has been full steam ahead since our first round deadline on October 8.

The Class of 2011 recently arrived on campus for the start of orientation. It's always exciting to see a class come together at the start of a new school year, and this year is no different. We have a fantastic group of students joining the program -- not only are they impressive in terms of their statistics, but they have accomplished some incredible things in their time prior to Yale -- and they really seem to be enjoying getting to know each other and becoming a class.
