Start of orientation and application now live
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. They also represent our first class as a member of the Consortium for Graduate Study in Management, which is especially exciting. Of course, there's no rest in admissions: No sooner has the Class of 2011 arrived on campus than we turn our attention to the Class of 2012. In fact, our online application went live earlier this week, and we're currently gearing up for our fall recruiting events. Of particular note are the three virtual receptions we're holding this year for people who can't make it to our "in-person" receptions -- including an "Application Tips Chat" we're hosting on September 16 that's intended to give applicants some insights and strategies for how to navigate the admissions process. And, of course, it's always possible to learn more about SOM through our online tools or to get a first-hand view of the school by visiting the campus, which includes a class visit, tour of the campus, and session with an admissions officer. We look forward to meeting and getting to know a new group of prospective students in the coming months!
