Facebook group stalking is where it is at. 1 new member very recently though I just started checking. Might not be one of the calls yet, but if we see a couple more trickle in I think ew can say calls are out.

Hey folks. Because I have a good friend who's waiting to hear, I've been paying a bit more attention to this. Because they were on break last week and the one person added to the group came around the same time as their twitter update, I'm guessing this is a holdover from before the break, not the first of a new wave (esp. since I think there would be more than just one person who was admitted and wanted to join the group). Usually they do the calls in the late afternoon/early evening, so I think there's probably still a few more hours to go. Good luck!

Good call. You can also check twitter for "yale law" and ctrl+f for a few exclamation points. That's obviously much less reliable, though.

Indeed - that is making it into an art form.

Thanks for the info zabagabe, much appreciated. Sorry for bumping the thread...

Not even sure why I'm getting myself all psyched up when I'm an underdog and really happy with HLS anyhow. Hope all you kids get in, good luck. :D

I went complete the 1st week of March...looks like all of the LSN admits have had at least a month between going complete and getting in...

I think I went complete 3/1 (thanks dean's cert!). You're right, I doubt these calls would apply to us either way.

I was wondering when someone was going to come out with the latest fb stats. I am at work therefore don't have fb access during the day and was really hoping someone would feed my addiction, but was too ashamed to ask. Thank you The Real Jack McCoy. Any chance you can clue me in about what the total count is these days?

PS) Fb stats need to be taken with a grain, or box (as my favorite teacher used to say), of salt -- The only two people I know who have been accepted are not in the fb group...

:shock: Penn, UChi, and NYU all have >100 in their groups. Do you think Yale just gets a much higher fb yield bc people 'know' they're going there??

Maybe? Perhaps some deferrals from past cycles too?

The number seemed quite high to me as well.

That, plus I think someone said that the YLS admissions folks are pretty good about telling people about the Facebook group immediately once admitted.

Now that I think about it some more, let's be precise: The group is named "Students admitted to YLS 2014." So it seems likely that some of them aren't actually attending.

Not in my case, lol. Don't think I ever got any sort of welcome e-mail.

Of course. Just like there are people in multiple XYZ Law Class of 2014 groups. And there might even be some admins and current students, however, that's the case at these other schools and they admit a lot more people. Maybe the fb invite in the email explanation is the answer. Or maybe it's just friggin Yale. Either way, that's a lot of people already admitted.

It really is. Especially considering there were 255 people admitted last year. And some people aren't on Facebook.

Second, there are a bunch of deferred students (such as myself), some of whom are in the group, thus inflating the total number of 2010-2011 "admits". Whether or not these two groups cancel each other out numbers-wise is debatable.

That said, based on my past two years watching the group, the deluge is very nearly upon us. It usually goes from <100 to >200 in about a month; indeed, it was <70 until this past week.


Zabagabe, from about a month back. The good news is the facebook group figure exceeds 200 at some point in the cycle - still some admits left to give out.

Apparently not. They are killing me over here, I am still waiting on 5 schools and went UR on all of them back in november. Heading home to the mailbox, wish me luck. I can't believe how obsessive I have become in the past few weeks, always thought I would have more pride than this.

In at YLS via phone call. I know I'm outing myself, but I'm too excited not to share.

Cycle complete.
