Candidate Referral - Alumni

Thank you to the hundreds of alumni volunteers who assisted our admissions efforts this past year, whether by hosting or attending an event, reaching out to an admitted applicant, or in any number of other ways.  Your involvement truly makes a difference.  The results this past year were impressive, including a 12% increase in applications and a median GMAT of 730 and GPA of 3.63 for the incoming class.  There is a lot of positive momentum that we are looking to continue.  Getting your input on top MBA candidates is one way to do that.

As you think of early-career individuals with whom you interact, you may not know their GMAT score or GPA, but you likely know a few individuals who stand out in terms of their intelligence, judgment, diligence, and ability to influence others.  These are the people we want.  In particular, given the School’s mission to educate leaders for business and society, we are especially interested in individuals who are broad-minded and intellectually curious; who think creatively about situations; and who apply analytical rigor to solutions.  In short, we want individuals who are best able to leverage three distinguishing features of Yale SOM:

1.    The business school most integrated with its home University;
2.    The most global US business school; and
3.    The best source of elevated leaders for all sectors and regions

We encourage you to refer as many high-potential individuals as you know. You can do so anytime, but if you submit a referral by December 1, 2017, they will receive a one-on-one consultation session with a member of the Admissions Committee before this year’s main application deadline on January 4, 2018.

To show our appreciation for your help in this important effort, every alumna/us who refers a candidate will be highlighted in the SOM annual report. In addition, if the candidate you refer ultimately applies and is admitted to SOM, you will be entered into a raffle for a weekend (airfare and 2 night’s hotel) to New Haven on the dates of your choice (e.g., Reunion, The Game, etc.). Finally, we will also let you know if any candidates you recommend are admitted to SOM so that you can congratulate them on their admission.

Thank you for your continued support of Yale SOM!
