I've been trying to avoid the Yale Waiting thread because I find the endless obsessing pathetic and silly LOL. Life will go on if we don't get into Yale. What bewilders me are the folks in there with H acceptances
. If I were sitting on a Harvard acceptance, I'd so content. I'd probably check LSN and TLS once a week.
Agreed. I find it particularly funny, however, that some of those anxious applicants were happy to hop on board when treple started his 'why HLS over YLS' thread to fervently support his choice and try to prove that most Yale hopefuls would only pick it over H because it's first ranked. Could it be that they recognize traces of their own reasoning in such a rationale, eh? And, plus, if H isn't necessarily below Y, why all the fuss over that YLS acceptance? Are they not already sitting on an acceptance from a potentially 'more recognized' peer anyway?
FWIW, I would never, ever pick H over Y, even if rankings were switched. Second or first according to USNWR, Yale will always be better than Harvard in my eyes. They're just...idk, Yale. They own everyone else, first ranked or not.
