I concur. I am calling it a day, having concluded that absolutely nothing remarkable is going to happen today. That said, I really want to adopt a puppy, so I think I am going to look into that. At least a puppy will 1) love me all the time unconditionally, 2) give me tons of attention, 3) still look cute when it pees on my shoes.

Yale has puppies for stress-relieving play time in the library during finals period.

Don't act like you aren't impressed.

Sorry--did not mean to be cryptic. Admit. The email apologizes for no phone calls b/c they realize they're late.

If they email me, I'll reject them for having the audacity not to call me.

I'm actually an MVP student, if you were counting me as a GULC admit.

I was, my mistake. Mind sharing your approx. rank? Think you'll accept?

And, as long as I'm asking personal questions, did either of you get into and deposit at Harvard?

Email acceptances for both of you, both T14s?

Very nice, congratulations.

I assume this means game over for Yale.

Probably around top 5%. I have a strong interest in academia, so I'm definitely planning on accepting. And I, too, will be withdrawing from Harvard tonight.

And here I thought my awesome 250 would get me in, despite my non-aristocratic pedigree!

Thank you for the congrats, and good luck to everyone in here. It's been so helpful sharing data, keeping us from going crazy in our own little bubbles.

Stats for me are also top ~5%.

Just sent of an email to HLS and hoping that frees something up STAT.

Law schools are extremely similar in terms of learning and testing methodology, and the quality of the student bodies in similarly ranked schools should be similar. Still, given the results from H and Y, we clearly see that T14 is an exclusive club and H/Y seem to believe that there is a huge chasm between T14 and non-T14 schools (10% in Cornell or GULC would easily beat 2% in T20).
This is another indication that this profession is all about PRESTIGE.

For H, at least, this philosophy in transfer admissions seems to be new. I'm pretty sure it has something to do with their having a new dean of admissions. In years past, it wasn't this unbalanced in favor of the T14.

Looks like H is going to make some move this week. Good luck to all of us still hanging there!
