Whaaaaaaaat? Exactly how many people have you murdered? With those stats, I would expect they'd give you a freebie on at least one.

I wish I could hug y'all. I haven't received anything so far. IDK if they'll have another wave soon.

Sabanist? Are you still alive? Has anyone else not heard back yet?

I did have a minor C&F that in and of its self wouldn't have caused a ding. If anything it was the fact that I had to amend the statement as one if the facts was inaccurate in the initial statement. I know for a fact that Asha hates that, seems sketchy she said in a blog post.

So in a process where they're looking to ding people for just about anything...

Feeling like a bit of a failure though. Stupid, I know. :-(


That sucks man. =( I hear you about feeling like a failure. YLS is so pumped up on TLS--and for good reason. It's a great school. But at the same time, I think it can be easy to overestimate it solely because of external factors like rank. I, for one, had already decided that if I were to get accepted to all of HYS I'd pick S because of proximity to family, better 1L experience due to weather and outdoor activities, my desire to practice in CA, and some specific faculty members with academic expertise in my area of focus. Still, it hurts to get dinged by YLS but if I'm honest with myself it's more because I merely wanted to say I was "good enough." :) But Yale =/= "good enough" and thus not Yale =/= not "good enough." All are excellent schools. At this level of ranking I think its far more about fit than it is about ranking, and I think the minor details like weather are legitimate reasons to pick one over the other.

Then again, maybe I'm just sour grapes! ;) And maybe I'll be homeless for picking based on weather. :) But at least it's easier to be homeless in the Cali sun than it is in New England!

I have not heard back. Feel like calling to see if they lost my app. (But I'll refrain... I suppose.)

Based on this (LinkRemoved) it looks like we early submitters are in for a WL. If that's the case, I'll be stunned, honestly.

I'm a Criminal Justice major. I wrote my (risky) 250 on tackling a shoplifter.

I'm pretty sure this ding is just YP for me though.

It really is. So you were rejected from the school that accepts nobody. H and S aren't bad fallback options.

H is a good option. Stttanford is not. Have fun in Boston, worm!

But I wasn't an early submitter. I submitted between Jan 1 and Valentine's day (approximately).

Earlier than me. Probably to clarify a bit more (without outing myself), I was complete after Feb. 8... if that gives you further perspective on my long date range I mentioned earlier.

Also worm, if it's any consolation, I would literally give one of my testicles for a Harvard or Stanford acceptance. You have both. (acceptances and testicles... I assume)

I went complete near the middle of January and I'm still alive. Expecting WL at this point.

Is that the most likely outcome for us now? Is there not historically another wave of dings?

So I guess the 1 AM email was the complete wave. Survived the night, mid-Jan complete, but expecting a ding or WL at best in two weeks since I made an obvious mistake on my app. Maybe they're moving on to the 11s?
