I like your optimism! But I think next week is a more realistic time line for the earliest offers. They've got sorting and re-reviewing. Plus, I'm hoping the re-review will be preceded by a twitter announcement like it was last year.

On a separate note, only one withdrawal on LSN.

That would fit with historical trends, but there's just no way to know. The Twitter account hasn't really been used as much this cycle.

Something Asha wrote in reply to a comment on her blog last week:
Asha wrote:I know, I've been really bad about writing on the blog. We've been in the crush of the end of admissions season.
I'll try to get back online next week -- I'm hoping the dust will have settled on the class of 2014 by then!


So I'm guessing at the very least they're hoping to have regular admits settled this week?

Well, regular admit deposits were due the 2nd, so with the exception of evaluating deferral requests (of which YLS has quite a few each year), they should know by now.

Although I'm 100% sure I'm outing myself here, figured I should keep this updated--in off the waitlist today! See you in New Haven. :D

Dear you,

I hate you. But that's OK. I knew this already and I'm so proud of you! But I really do need you to call Craig on my behalf. I've been staring at my phone ever since I found out. Le sigh.

Love and shit,
Subtle

I personally know of one person who got an admit call in the past week. Looking at the Facebook group, it seems like only 4 people have been added in the last month or so, I think.

So I'm guessing those of us who haven't heard anything by now are probably out of luck? (Judging from YLS statements about having the class pretty much settled by the end of May.)

Seems like this year was a bit of a departure from past years; no news and virtually no movement (that we know of.) Any ideas?

I think there was plenty of movement. I know personally of 3 people who were let in off the wait list, and if the Facebook group was any indicator, at least 7 people were added in May/early June.

But yes, our chances at this point are nearly zero.
