Yale Reveals All

<p>A while back someone mentioned this website:</p>

<p><a href="http://www.yale.edu/asc/%5B/url%5D"&gt;http://www.yale.edu/asc/&lt;/a&gt;&lt;/p>

<p>I truly think it is the best find ever!
This is the website for Yale's Alumni Schools Committee.</p>

including a list of SUGGESTED QUESTIONS for the interviewer and

<p>It also contains: THE ASC NEWSLETTERS!</p>

<p>These Newsletters have the best statistical information I have ever seen!
And Yale is the source!
Especially regarding ADMISSIONS for the CLASSES OF 2007 and 2008!
They have this great PROFILE for the CLASS OF 2005!
Wow! It truly is a treasure trove, with the potential to answer many of your questions and give you a new perspective on it all! SO check it out!</p>

<p>chartreuse. who are you?</p>

<p>NICE! very informative site. thanks for the find!</p>

<p>Who am I?
Well, I am a senior who applied to Yale via SCEA.
Is that what you mean?</p>

<p>you just seem very knowledgeable. and in another thread where you explained the yale admissions factors you used the pronoun "we" as if you evaluated applications yourself. just wondering.</p>

<p>thats v. interesting, but don't you have the feeling while reading through it that you're doing something very wrong? i got that feeling.</p>

<p>Hahah! I meant "we" as in me and the person who is reading what I am writing!
As though my explanation were a journey of sorts!
Thanks for saying I sound knowledgeable. I'm not connected to the admissions people at Yale in any way, sorry guys =(<br>
I guess I've just done my hmwk =)
And yes, filmxoxo17, I did kind of get an ooky feeling.
It was weird that they had all the information online.
But hey, it's up there, it's a free internet, so we have every right to access it.</p>

<p>The guide is very technical, but the interviewers don't always follow it word for word. For example, I had an interview for Yale last year, and my interviewer asked me my parents' occupations and if I was applying for aid, even though the guide says not to. And the interview took an hour and a half, while the guide says 45 minutes to an hour.</p>

<p>Asking about your parents' occupations is a direct violation and a
horrid thing to do!
That is totally irrelevant and this Interviewer should be ashamed.
I hope that there are very very very few like him/her.
But, yeah, no one will really follow it word for word.
Still, it's quite interesting to read!</p>

<p>lol. Chartreuse chill out. I'm sure it was just part of the conversation, not a determining factor.</p>

but I still don't see any strong reason to do so, especially when Yale says you shouldn't.</p>
