I got dinged about 5 days ago. Started app process really late and had some idiotic issues with recommendations that I'm pretty sure killed me from the get-go. You should be getting snail mail either way, though.

Thanks, D'Angelo. Sorry about the rejection.

Do you know which address they sent your letter to? I put the right mailing and permanent addresses on my application, but I realized that my "My Profile" address in the system is an old one.

I just tried to access my application and couldn't - however, the address where I received the letter was what I'd probably put as my permanent address. (I happened to be home over break when the letter came, which was convenient.)

A lot of smart-as-fuck MD/PhD students who will do far more impressive things. Although the YLS guy was pretty damn impressive.
