We announced the upcoming season's application deadlines and essay topics in last month's edition of our online admissions newsletter. For those of you who want to stay up-to-date on what's happening at SOM, subscribing to the admissions newsletter is a great place to start. If, however, you did not receive the newsletter, below are the 2010-2011 Yale SOM application deadlines and essay questions. We plan to take the application live next month and will be posting our event schedule shortly, so please keep an eye out for those updates as well.

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.

Despite the common assumption that summers are quiet in academia, June came and went with a flurry of activity here in admissions. The month included lots of outreach and events, starting on the 1st with our first Consortium Orientation Program in Charlotte and ending just last Friday when SOM concluded its inaugural two-week Pre-MBA Leadership Program here on campus (the purpose of which is to expose college students and early professionals who are committed to diversity and inclusion to the possibilities of an MBA education).

So I spent part of last week in Mexico City participating in Yale Week in Mexico. Yale Week is a great program whereby various faculty from across the University -- SOM, the Law School, School of Medicine, Yale College, etc. -- as well as Yale administrators travel down to Mexico for lectures, meetings, and other activities (such as a community service project in Monterrey with Yale students and alumni and members of the Tec de Monterrey community).

Now that our second application round is roughly two-thirds over, it seems like a good time to take stock with where we are and what will happen for the rest of the round. We released our first batch of decisions right at the end of February. These decisions were mostly our Consortium applications, to whom we owed a decision by early March, with a few additional applications that we were ready to release added on. We feel very good about the people we admitted through the Consortium process.

One of the things I love about SOM is the constant flow of really interesting people who come to school to speak to students, participate in classes and conferences, and generally contribute to the ongoing discourse here on campus. These past few weeks especially, it seems as though there has been a lot of activity at SOM in terms of visitors and speakers.Starting with the Education Leadership Conference, which took place a few Fridays ago and featured Joel Klein, Chancellor of the New York City Department of Education, we've had a number of great guests here at SOM.

As I write this post, we are digging out from yet another winter snow storm. There has been an unusually high amount of snow this year here in New England -- which I actually like because it's quite beautiful (despite the difficulty getting around).{C} Along with the snow has come an uptick in activity here on campus -- spring semester classes started back up Tuesday. It's been great to see the students back on campus and to hear the first-years tell stories from their International Experience trips to the UAE, Costa Rica, Turkey, China, and elsewhere.

Classes ended on the 19th and students have left for winter break, but things have remained busy here at SOM over the holidays. First, leading up to the break, the school hosted the 58th annual Yale CEO Summit in New York. Organized by Senior Associate Dean Jeffrey Sonnenfeld, the CEO Summit is an opportunity for chief executives of top organizations to have candid, off-the-record conversations about the challenges facing contemporary business.

It’s exactly four weeks since our Round 1 deadline, which seems like a good time to drop a quick note on what we have been up to in admissions and what’s happening next. At this point, the vast majority of applications are complete and ready to read. Only a handful of applicants are still missing materials, and we emailed those people who are missing materials yesterday, so anyone who didn’t receive an email should assume that their application is complete (it’s also possible for applicants to check their status on their
