Haha, agreed for formal writing--"less" technically cannot modify plural nouns. But for TLS posts made after midnight, I'm okay with going a little colloquial =P.

Nope, there's a month+ of applicants who haven't heard anything yet, which is why it's silly to assume WL as a best-case scenario.

Or worst-case. I think you can draw zero conclusions from that fact other than that they haven't made a decision on you yet. In fact, with Yale's single digit acceptance rate assuming a WL is probably quite an unfounded presumption. TONS of people got rejected mid-April last year.

Haha, no worries. This is the Yale thread--pedantry is always welcome.

I submitted in early December, was complete in early January, and have yet to hear back. Given that my numbers are much too low for Yale, I don't know what to make of this.

Why hold on to my ap for so long only to reject me? Is it really that hard to decide what they want to do with me?

I would have thought they'd be letting people in this week so they could book tickets to ASW. But they might not care about that lol

I guess they are really feeling the crunch from that extended app deadline! Calls are awesome and all, but if it gets a decision out sooner, I am all in favor of emailing.

They could throw a brick through my window with an acceptance letter attached and I'd be no less happy.

If they threw a brick through my window with a waitlist letter, I'd save that brick forever.

The most painful part, I imagine, is retrieving the bullet to read the message.

TBF I imagine there are actually a lot of us on here who would take a non-lethal bullet for Yale. I know I would.

Word. Another reason to fear my inbox, which I thought I was finally done with.

Do y'all think this batch of emails will contain decisions for those of us that applied right at the deadline and didn't go complete until like the middle of March? I hope so, but have a feeling my hope is unwarranted . . .
