Congrats so much Cicero! Seems like we can count on small trickles from here on out until the inevitable big WL/ding wave.

Congrats!!! But, numbers and application submission twin, why do you have to give me hope?


Yeah, I can be cruel like that sometimes ;)

Thanks so much to everyone for the congrats. I'd be happy to answer anyone's questions or share any part of my application over PM, especially if someone wants to (re)apply next year!

8:30am class tomorrow, no way I'm going to be able to sleep tonight....

Haha, congrats again, Cicero! And same here - definitely PM with questions. Yale is really unpredictable, but they're really holistic. Each part of your app matters. Would love to help the TLS community. Without you guys, I would've never had the support system I did.

Wow, with top numbers, too (4.0, 176).

Still, the Facebook group is still way too low for there not to be another wave of acceptances.

Geeeeeeez, congratulations, GW!!! You too, Cicero, looks like you've got some neat softs. Cheers to you both!

And props to Yale for looking at the whole applicant, not just numbers.. based on the TLS acceptances so far I'd say Yale is going to have an outstanding class next year. Sooooo jealous! :) Great job, guys!!

GW - Out of curiosity, are they still emailing out acceptances, or have they started calling again?

CONGRATS by the way!!

for sure a ding wave. Way too many people left. the WL is never over 100 people

So think of it this way, if you get WL, then u were the top 300 applicants instead of the top 200. Still kinda cool.

183 members. They find you and add you real quick too. It was almost unnerving--I go by my middle name, so my FB profile is my middle name, but the director of admissions added me to the group about ten minutes after I got my acceptance email. They must have scoped me out ahead of time. I guess my posts didn't scare them off!

Thank you!!!!

Found out via e-mail...

"Dear Graham,

On behalf of Dean Post and the faculty, I would like to offer my congratulations on your acceptance to Yale Law School! In order to provide you with your decision as quickly as possible, I am notifying you of your acceptance by e-mail instead of by telephone."

I don't think they scoped mine. Mine is only visible under mutual friends, and the invite didn't come to my Facebook email address.
