Yeah, if we couldn't even get in the "preferred admits" group at H, no way we're getting Y. Really seems like the competition is stiffer this year.

I feel like every time I told someone about transferring they were like, "Hey, I have good numbers, Imma do it too!"

And they should just stay where they are and be happy doing family law in a small town. Come on people!

Well, there you go. Makes sense given the email they sent about decisions coming this week into next. I will not be too heartbroken when I do not get a phone call.

i read this and became disappointed that i hadn't received a call, and then remembered i didn't apply to Yale

I don't know man, I missed out on that first H wave and I got S out of the blue, so I don't kow how indicative it will be for predicting Yale admits. I bet at least someone who didn't get H in that first wave will get Yale. It all seems really black-boxy.

You just gave me the slightest shred of hope. Damn you [shakes fist at heavens]!

I'm already jumping everytime my phone vibrates in my pocket... today (and potentially the rest of this week) is going to be brutal. Productivity --> all time low.

If you get YHS all three, I will either murder you or insist that I get one of the two spots you have to forgo. Your choice.

Also, does this mean that Yale does things over a several day period?

i have no idea about that part, i just meant that b/c the email said decisions late this week or early next week, we don't know when D-Day is.

Pre-diarrheal rumblings, maybe.

No, you will be the first one here since you are destined to accomplish the HYS hat trick.

Any leaning to H or S so far? When is the S deposit deadline BTW?

S deposit is Jul 31. I already paid the H deposit (before I even found out about S). Still hashing out the finaid at both H and S, so that will play a big role. And finding out one way or the other about HLR will be a factor too. So right now I'm trying to stay neutral and open minded until all the pieces fall ito place.

What if a tree fell in the forest, and the tree did not have a TLS account? Did the tree get in to Y?

It's a fair question. I haven't seen anyone post in the transfer forum whom I would consider to be a typical Yale admit. I'm sure they're lurking out there and will come in here to gloat when the calls come out. Otherwise, it's entirely possible all the calls will go out and none of us will know.

I think there was someone who got into H who was like top 1 percent at GULC.

Oh. Well, we'll wait for that guy to get the call, then. At least we'll know.
