Dear Yale,

May your endowment suffer the economy's wrath if you don't mistakenly let me in!

Sincerely,

Me

no I meant acceptance email--I haven't received it yet. I know the materials are supposed to come in the new year, but an email before then. :D

do it, might as well give it a shot.

Supposedly I'm supposed to receive an email with a bunch of digital information (the actual material won't arrive until after the new year) but when I receive the email I'll let you know what it says as far as dates for asw.

One of my classmates just got the call today around 5:00... I'm soo jealous! She was well below the expected LSAT numbers for Yale, but 3.97... There is hope.

Every post like this makes me die a little bit inside. I've had 3 straight nights of YLS related dreams/nightmares.

I'm in! My stats are not good for Yale (173, 3.92), so it had to be the softs (3 years in legal services, 10 years queer activism on a national level, a few publications/presentations at conferences). I wrote my 250 about the similarities between my trapeze training and an oral history project I did for fun after graduation. My personal statement was about what it felt like to end up doing criminal defense work when I had intended to go into civil law practice.
I got the voicemail during trapeze class, about 7pm tonight.

Congrats LAS! your softs and numbers are very YLS! :lol: I can't believe I might be classmates with someone who is as accomplished as you are.

I sent in my applications early october, and went complete end of october.

I got in last night. I was in total disbelief the entire phone call. I still am. My numbers are slightly below the medians for Yale, which goes to show that they are committed to looking at the complete application.

I don't think I will fully believe it until I actually get the email. :shock:

Would it be bad form to write a love letter to Yale?

I really want them.

Wouldn't it be awesome if you could sell law school acceptances?
