Interview with Laurel Grodman, Director of Admissions for Analytics and Evaluation at Yale SOM
Laurel Grodman, Director of Admissions for Analytics and Evaluation at Yale SOM, shares her perspective on how Yale differentiates itself from its competition and what it takes to be a successful applicant. The school has experienced explosive year-over-year growth in application volume for the last five years. Let’s learn what Laurel sees for the future.
Every summer, the Lindau Nobel Laureates Meeting brings together hundreds of young scientists from around the world for a week of exchange and discussion with Nobel Laureates in Lindau, Germany, alternating each year between the fields of physics, physiology and medicine, chemistry, and economic sciences. The meetings aim to create lifelong connections between scientists of different backgrounds, generations, and cultures. This summer, Yale’s own Kayoko Shioda, a Ph.D. student at the School of Public Health, attended the event after being nominated by her home country of Japan. She was one of six-hundred young scientists selected in a competitive application process to meet with the thirty-nine Nobel Laureates in attendance.
The White-bellied Heron is a critically endangered heron species found only in Bhutan, Northeast India, and Myanmar. Fewer than 60 confirmed White-bellied Herons exist in the world today. While there are few records of occurrence of the bird from the range countries, nests of this species have remained one of the rarest in history. Before 2000, only two nests had been found which were presumed to be of this bird; one was reported in Darjeeling, India, before 1890 and another in Myanmar, before 1930. With lack of breeding evidence, the bird was assumed to have vanished during late 1900 until a new nest was found in Bhutan in 2003. Since then, two to five active nests have been identified in Bhutan from where two to eight new chicks fledge annually. However, the population has remained critically low and the trend is further declining.
