thanks i guess i will no longer be checking my mailbox everyday because mail is just bad news now.
as an aside if ive been complete since january 13th and havent got rejected yet- is that a good sign or a bad sign?
It's a nothing sign, I think (though there are few good signs with Yale other than getting the call). I went complete pretty much about the same time and nobody with our rough complete dates has gotten dinged yet, so it's hard to say. Based on previous years, we're due for the second round of rejections either this week or next and I'd imagine it'll be mostly those who submitted in December/January/possibly very early Feb as well as a few other earlier submitters who went to faculty review but didn't make it. If we aren't rejected in the next wave, though, I'd imagine we're all in it for the long haul (presumably mid-April).
