vman's complete date is before mine, and he got in after me. I don't think the Complete Date is a completely accurate thing to go by...

It is clearly not strictly based on complete date -- carbon is right!

Good luck to everyone still waiting.

Becuz it was such a big wave. It would make sense that Asha makes her picks and they get run by the designated faculty review committee all in one sitting each month.

Trickles come through the regular process of three profs, as she only gets those 50 applications at a time as each professor turns in his stack

Of course, other possibility is that Asha was just hording all the calls to go out at once. No real way to know.

I'm sure everyone has come across this already, but didn't see it on this thread or the one about the downward trend in LSAC applications this year--

http://yaledailynews.com/blog/2013/03/0 ... o-economy/

In 2004, 100,000 students applied to American law schools, but this year, experts and media outlets predict a total of fewer than 60,000. Yale Law School received 2,943 applications in 2012, compared to 3,173 in 2011 and 3,797 in 2010.

Hahaha a pertinent question would be what type of applicants are the 25% that chose not to apply? I doubt it was the higher caliber applicants (w/o an evidence)

They're the ones who experienced the greatest drop in LSAT takers, so maybe.

so waitlist is beginning of April? Thats what I'm tentatively expecting at this point. I know someone who got in off the waitlist last year, so basically it means torture continues.
