    For anyone who has interviewed at Yale, do you know what time the day wraps up for the afternoon session?? <img src="confused.gif" border="0">

    I loved Yale. I hope they accept me. The afternoon session usually ends around 4 or 5 I think. I did the morning session and I ended at around 2:30. I think the afternoon people get the financial aid talk and lunch first and then their interviews, whereas the morning get the interviews and then the financial aid talk and lunch.

    Good'll love it!

    Do you get to pick which section?

    Can you describe the interview? How many interviewers, was it relaxed? How was it compared to other schools?

    Yale was great. I did the morning section and was done at around 2:00 or so. After the interview there all I could think about was going to Yale. I was in love with the place until Penn stole my interest.

    I had a morning session interview--it started early (I think at about 8). The director of admissions gives you your interview folder, then walks you through how much money Yale puts into the school, gives you a really nice, award-winning brochure. Then, in order of when your interviews start, you meet with Grace who gives you exact directions to each of your two interview locations.

    If you have some time before your first interview, you watch a video about Yale and chat with Mr. Silverman (Dir of Admissions). Then you have your two interviews. They may both be on campus or not--I had one at the VA in West Haven (the shuttle stops outside the med school) and one on campus (I was late for this one, but Grace calls in advance to warn your interviewers if you will be late). The interviews are amazing--the best of Yale, to me, was the faculty definitely. They are conversational, but interesting. One of my interviewers asked me lots of hypothetical questions in order to get me to shed my "applicant" behavior. We ended up having an amazing conversation.

    After the interviews, you meet up with the morning and afternoon sessioners and go to lunch with some students. After lunch is the tour. After the tour, if you are a morning sessioner, you can go home.

    Yes, when you receive your interview invitation, you can specify whether you want a morning or afternoon session interview. Grace is very accomodating.

    Good luck!
