May be too soon to ask, but since apps just officially closed, when do we expect either the next accept or reject round?

Maybe early April as a possibility? My reviewers were super fast, and it'd behoove YLS to accept most people before ASW in mid-April so that most can attend.

Also, I just got my acceptance binder!! That thing is HUGE. No wonder their yield is so good--I'd feel really awkward just having a binder labeled YLS if I went to another school, too...

fb group is trickling in 1-2 admits almost everyday now.

downside to this rate is that once you post on TLS that you're in, people can relatively easily figure out who you are, haha

lol I didn't exactly try very hard to be anonymous with my LSN profile did I? Being the first in that FB group didn't exactly help either.

I don't really know why TLS is so paranoid with anonymity, but I guess you're freer to say crap; never been a fan of shitmouthing, so I'd rather be transparent.

I think the waitlist is usually 50 folks, and they pull about 5 eventually, but srsly, there's still about half the class to fill, so I wouldn't say WL is best-case right now for a lot of folks.

Not to be a downer, but a WL at Yale is notorious for basically being a ding. It's more something to brag about "hey, I ALMOST got into Yale."

It's a downer anyway, but it's helpful info. It's sort of a relief to know I probably don't need to bother riding the WL if that's where I end up.
I'm just ready to know where I stand :/

I mean, definitely ride it out until it stops being worthwhile (which could be until orientation starts for you) but Yale's yield is so high and so consistent that the WL isn't very important for them.

Wow. But I don't think its fair to judge Yale until we get similar stats from H and S.

Yeah, if you survey a workshop on masochistic sexual practices as depicted in "50 Shades of Grey" you will likely find that lots of people are into kink. The large number of virgins is also not surprising.

Interesting that at least 4 of the TLS admits so far are non-white.

ETA Hopefully that's okay to say--if anyone thinks I'm referring to you and aren't comfortable with that, let me know.
