Yale holds a huge reputation among business schools in the US. A seat at the respected Yale School of Management is a dream come true for many GMAT takers. So what does it take to get there?
You need a solid GMAT score for admissions to Yale SOM. The median GMAT score for the class of 2016 is 720 while the middle 80% GMAT range is 680-760. To put yourself in a favourable position, try to aim for a score in excess of 720. The higher the better.
As you would expect, the b-school does not mention a minimum cut-off for GMAT. The median GPA is 3.56 while the 80% range is 3.17-3.87. While work experience is not a mandatory requirement at Yale SOM, most successful applicants have 3-5 years of work experience.
Apart from the typical admission requirements of transcripts, recommendations and essays, applicants also need to submit answers to video questions. The school thinks that videos are a more effective way to learn about candidates as opposed to just a ‘paper’ application.
A great GMAT score, along with a good application mix and presentation on the video, will keep you competitive for a seat at Yale University.
