Yale’s admissions offices for graduate and professional schools evaluate applicants holistically and will take the significant disruptions of COVID-19 into account when reviewing students’ transcripts and other admissions materials relating to Spring 2020. In particular, we will respect decisions regarding the adoption of Credit/Fail and other grading options during this unprecedented period, whether they are made by institutions or by individual students.
In no more than 5 sentences, please describe any gaps in your resume (where you were not employed, in school, or interning) lasting longer than 3 months.
GRE, GMAT or LSAT (Optional)
We look for students capable of making effective contributions to scientific knowledge or to professional service in addressing environmental problems. Special weight is given to relevant experiences after graduation from college. Clarity regarding professional career goals is a critically important part of the applicant's personal statement. Admissions staff and faculty review teams read the applications submitted to the Master’s degree program. Final admissions decisions rest on an integrated assessment of the components described above.
As a policy, the Yale School of the Environment does not typically grant enrollment deferral requests that will allow you to defer admission to a later year and instead asks you to reapply. (i.e. Requests for financial reasons, educational reasons, professional opportunities, etc.).
The Yale School of the Environment will only consider enrollment deferral requests for the following reasons:
In the event a deferral request is approved, the deferral will only be granted for a one year time period. Requests for deferral must be submitted in writing via the YSE Official Deferral Request Form with relevant supporting documentation. Please contact the admissions for more information: firstname.lastname@example.org.
Students who are offered admissions into YSE must submit a non-refundable $500 enrollment deposit by 12:00 pm Eastern Standard Time on the deposit date for the application round. As a policy, YSE does not offer deposit extensions.
