Just called again -- they still have the recorded message that they will reopen on Monday (yesterday). Time to resort to email!

some people got in, a lot of people didnt, some people who applied early are still waiting


Quite simply the most succinct, most complete summary of this thread to date.

When is the latest I will hear an initial decision accept/reject/wl decision?

Is it good news that I have not been rejected yet? (or some less stupid question).


The chances of being admitted at this point with out a WL are very low and decreasing. Early applicants who have survived seem to have a fairly good shot at WL.

Please someone correct me if I'm wrong.


According to the TLS stats that have been floating around for a while, early applicants have about 50% chance shot at a WL; of course, Asha regularly derides the TLS data as unrepresentative, so take it with a grain of salt.

For late submitters, there is no good news until you're accepted.

Only because they can't possibly string this out much longer; the May 1 deposit deadlines are only three weeks away.

Also it looks like from LSN that this is historically the week for WLs and more rejections

If it helps, the FB group is at 212 right now (including a handful of admins and current students).

Which means, if history holds true, there are about 40 more admits that need to be called. The YLS facebook groups from last year and the year before both had around 260 when they finalized the class.

40 more initial admits or 40 including waitlist admits?

My uninformed guess is that most of us will hear an initial decision on Friday, but it looks like in some past years people were receiving initial decisions as late as 4/25. Another two weeks would be awful.

I'm just going to hope for this Friday. What makes me nervous is the trickle of admitted calls stopped...but then again not everyone is on TLS.

I was sure I wouldn't get accepted at this point, but I got the call at 4:49pm today! My application was completed Jan 11, 3.83/177. Good luck everyone! There's still hope!

Congratulations! When you gain access to the YLS Facebook group, you might want to check out some of their recorded webinar sessions with current students, etc. You can also download a PDF of the admitted students' binder from there while you wait for the hard copy.

Congrats to all the new admits! It's fun to relive the excitement of getting that phone call through reading your posts.

Yeah, pretty intense. I had a very weird cycle. The fact that YLS and SLS scheduled the ASW for the same week adds more stress. Now even the fact that New Haven is a cheaper city and I could afford to have a cat is marginally at play in this crazy decision making process....
Not that cats are important...just a taste of how boggled my mind is right now.
P.S. I submitted early Nov. 2011

If poultry submitted in November, they must be opening the gates to release us from Early Submitter Limbo. Let's hope good news awaits.
