The program appears to be a success. Students tell Vault the experience 'exceeds expectations' and 'the material is very relevant and practical.' Plus, 'getting into popular classes is also a breeze'99 percent of students were able to obtain all of their first choices,' notes one student. The grading system is a 'very simple' one'around 80 percent of students in each class receive a grade of proficient. Then, very strong students will receive grades of distinction'which is reserved for the top 10 percent of students in each class.'
When applying to the MBA program, expect a 'flexible' admissions committee that 'provides helpful feedback. Overall, the school 'does a great job of personalizing the admissions process.' Yale SOM also makes an effort to be inclusive of all students, creating the Q+ Gay/Straight Alliance in 1999 to foster and encourage networking and dialogue between gay and straight MBA students.
