the truth is after the next 6 hours or so our chances of getting in fall from minuscule to atomic. good luck all!

correct, like size of an atomic bomb.

just seemed like weds-thurs tweet would be the last giant admit wave, with only a trickle after - looking at dates and stuff. its just a educated guess. a trickle at a school that only EVER trickles is pretty much cycle over in my books. finally.

I have the distinct pleasure of being an early December complete but having heard nothing from HY or S. It's terrible that I'm feeling that my brightest possible outcome is 3 waitlists haha.

I got into Yale in a dream last night... Turns out it was just a sick April fools joke played by friends at another school. Then I was in Target and dinosaurs were attacking me. I'm not sure if this is a sign.

Congrats lsacqueen!

The trickle news was not what I needed to hear. I was all ready to lose hope after today, but the wait lives on...

There are 175 currently. The Facebook invitation goes out a few minutes after the initial email.

Keep in mind that each number Pacifica, Carbon, or I report includes current students and admissions folks. I would subtract five to get a conservative estimate of admits each time we report. :-)

Anyone have any idea why Yale's stats in the LSAC Official Guide (http://www.lsac.org/officialguide-2013/lsac_3987.asp) differ from the info on Yale's website (http://www.law.yale.edu/admissions/admissions.htm)? Yale site says there were 2,943 applicants and 237 new offers while the LSAC profile says there were 3,158 applicants and 303 admits?

It could include LLMs? I don't know if you need a LSAT to apply for that though, or how relevant it would be in admission decisions.

Otherwise, no idea. Could be different years? Though that's a remarkable range in yield if it is.
