Okay, unlikely to get many responses, but anyway... has anyone applied to Yale within the past month or so? About how long does it take to get the complete e-mail? Has anyone applied since the December LSAT and gone complete? (I haven't, submitted 12/30.) I don't think I have a chance at Yale because my GPA is mediocre for them and my softs are nothing special, but I can still dream.

Sent out a bunch of apps after getting my Dec. score back, here's the stats:

URM: "hispanic" (spain)
GPA: 3.7x
LSAT: 157, 162
some decent softs
CA resident

Accepted to USD so far, app went complete on 1/14... kinda fast right?

If you sent them out in early Jan, not really. Bunch of my apps had a 10 day turnaround from received to complete.

yale is notoriously slow. applied a few days after you; I'm not complete and not expecting to hear anything until april. (unless they consider me an auto-reject.)

and don't use this pseudo-humble "I don't think I have a chance" (I don't-want-to-jinx-myself) bullshit. you have a 178. there are no guarantees at yale, but you certainly have a "chance."

Meh. I genuinely do not expect much from Yale. They don't care about numbers as long as your numbers are good, so a 178 is not as useful as it is for the other T6. I mean, maybe I offer something unique that I'm not aware of, but I feel a lot like generic person #439,784 who decided to apply to law school in junior year and who has generic undergraduate softs with nothing spectacular and a Y250 with a really boring topic. Perhaps not. Yale would be awesome.

Woo, pessimism!

Plus, you know, they rejected me for undergrad in favor of a girl from my high school who spoke openly about cheating on the SAT and who I was forced to be debate partners with who was only on the team to pad her college apps and who I suspect slept with a teacher to get her recommendation. It doesn't endear Yale to me. (I would take them anyway, though.)

OK, then say this; just don't say "I don't think I have a chance." Though saying "178 is not as useful as it is for the other T6" is rather silly.

How did that girl cheat on the SAT?

Priority Reserve at Duke.

Complete 1/14; DR 1/24.

10 Day track thingie. I did not write a Why Duke optional essay, which I think is part of not being accepted. I will write one now and see if that pushes me over the top. Probably will have to wait two months or so for an answer, though.

14 other apps pending to keep me busy.

Cell phones. She took the SAT in Hawaii specifically to be able to get test questions early from someone taking it on the East Coast. (HS was in NJ; she flew to Hawaii just to take the SAT.) Probably other stuff, too, but that's the part I know.

The complete turnaround isn't surprising, but the decision 10 days after complete is fast! :) I'm jealous.

SLU assigned me an email address today, which I'm taking as acceptance. It's a safety, but it's also my first decision of the cycle, so I'm happy.

If you are not PT then you aren't hearing back for a couple of months then with Duke?

Congrats! Do you mind sharing your numbers?

Generally speaking an auto-admit is usually someone who is above or very near the 75th percentile in both LSAT and GPA, although I suppose it depends on how loose your definition of "auto-admit" is.


173/3.6 ish... I adjusted a little. It was a really quick turn around

Speak of the devil: complete e-mail from Yale just now. Now, the waiting game. Who will render a decision later: Yale or Chicago?
