Is there any historical data on when we can expect round two of bloodletting to occur?

It's hard to tell. Judging from last years thread, there were two waves of admits before the first round of dings. So maybe they're doing it differently this year?

Did they wait for deposits before the second wave?

It doesn't really seem that there was a "wave" of dings. Seemed like very, very few.

Not sure. I think the second round of admits may have been before the first deposit deadline judging from the thread, but I'm sure someone from last years thread knows better than I do.

Looked at last year's thread the other day, so this may be off slightly:

2012 Timeline: Fri 07/06 (admits) --> Tues 07/10 (admits) --> Fri 07/13 (denials) -----------------> denials and admits trickled in until the 26th.

My guess would be that the 07/13 denials were on the deposit deadline (or day after).

Only thing we could do is speculate at this point. What's the use?

Well what are we to make of the few dings we heard of? Where does that fit into the timeline?

Will the fact that my file is still incomplete have an impact on the ultimate decision? They have all my application docs finally, but I have yet to receive email confirmation/status still says incomplete application - at this point I'm concerned my app won't receive the same consideration as it would have if it were competed sooner

well it is a rolling process and you missed the first big wave, so yes it will affect your chances. same logic as 1L apps

My guess is some dings tomorrow to thin the crowd out. No admits. Wait til Monday for deposit from first crew, Tues admit day.

True, but we're only calculating based on what's been reported here. There could be a large number of non-TLS applicants that got dinged, and/or maybe our group leans to the more admit-able end of the spectrum (my preferred theory :wink: )

So is the deposit due by Monday, or does it just need to be postmarked by the 15th?

I know a strong candidate from DNCG with a PhD and published LR article that got dinged yesterday. I'm not exactly sure what that says about the rest of us.

There is obviously some method to this madness, but sometimes it seems similar to this:

Through a lot of hard work--I got close.

Someone who published during their L1 (from George Mason) made it into Yale last year.
