Yeah there's no need to send them at all actually. We all know we were waitlisted.
I kind of want to frame mine though.

Still no movement? May sound odd, but after Asha's blog, I thought we would have seen something by now!

Whoa! E-mail from Yale confirming my intent to stay on the waitlist.

This probably means that they're just now sifting through those forms. Maybe application re-reviewing will happen soon? Eek.

Just got the email too! My heart skipped a beat when I saw it in my inbox. Hope this means movement is imminent...

Me neither, and I printed out and sent that form the day that I got the email. That's not good. Should we call??

I'm not calling until at least next week, at which point I'll consider it...

What time did you all get your e-mails? Was it one batch? Nothing here either.

Mine was stamped 12:00PM. I really wouldn't fret yet. I suspect they're doing it in batches, based on when you sent in the form (I sent mine immediately) and/or how long you plan to stay on the WL, which they confirm in the WL e-mail.

Thanks, that's helpful. I'm mainly fretting b/c I stupidly faxed my form back and am worried it didn't make it. Fax machines freak me out...

+1. Stamped at exactly 11 am CST/12 pm EST.

I sent my form via e-mail the day after I was waitlisted, FYI.

I put mine in the mail that day, which is why I'm worried. Uh oh!

Ok, so maybe they've only gotten back to emailers?

No, but I can add one more data point: emailed WL form day of receiving offer and received confirmation today.

Hey guys. Got mine at 12pm sharp as well, so it must have been an emailers batch. I also emailed back my waitlist confirmation the day after I received it so I'm sure they're just getting back to early responders first.

ok, end of the day and still nothing. starting to worry that either a) they didn't get my form, or b) they are going to be releasing people from the waitlist and i am one of those people

i suppose it's also possible they're about to admit me...ha

PSA from Yale Twitter:

Good luck y'all.

Okay, now I'm very worried. I called them, but their office is closed until Monday. If they don't have my form, I can't be under review for those spots next week!!!! Who else is in the same boat?

Thanks for the PSA alert, notanumber. If I hadn't received the confirmation, I'd probably fire off an e-mail right now explaining that I saw the twitter and am now resending the WL form (and any LOCI) by attachment . Then I'd call on Monday to confirm receipt. Couldn't hurt.

Good luck, everyone! I am going to try *not* to have my phone by me 24/7 next week. Much fun as that was before, I think I'm over that particular stress. :D

I had planned on relaxing, but now I'm afraid that there is going to be a terrifying phonepocalypse over the weekend. :shock:

Phone Gods (+ roommates + pets + ______ ), please don't send my phone into a puddle or hide my charger. Thank yooooooou.
