Me too! Is anyone okay with losing their TLS anonymity and outing themselves? Carbon already did this a while ago... 8)


PMed you. I'll be happy to tell any other Yale-bound TLSers who I am too if they PM :)


Me too. All of this anonymity seems unhealthy.


Well, I'm not that anonymous. I made no secret of my undergrad when I was admitted, lol. I wasn't intending to do so, but people in the Harvard thread were interested. :-)

FYI: Facebook group grew to 192 today. I would say that they've admitted 187 students to get a rough (but conservative) estimate on how admits are rolling in.


4 admins and 2 current students in that group. 186 if you're super conservative, but I recall at least 4 deferred students outing themselves as such in various posts, so if you want to be super optimistic, assume all deferred students are in there and throw in ~20:

230-166=64 (roughly) spots still open. getting close...


This assumes that all admitted students have facebook accounts. Not all do.

I've outed myself to fellow TLS's I've met in person and am happy to do so over PM if YLS accepts me... please

Amen. I'll even buy a round of beers (or cider to the non-drinkers) after the first day of classes. And we should invite Asha.

Teehee. I'm super easy to find in the YLS group, if you just think a little. ;) Anonymity is overrated if you don't say anything stupid on the Internet, anyway. So excited to meet you all next week!

Anonymity is overrated haha. Fortunately my initials are in my username and I was just added to the Facebook group today. Shouldn't be too difficult to figure out :D

Haha I might have gone overboard as an undergrad, but if this cycle has taught me anything it's that softs definitely matter!

I'm certain GW is a brilliant candidate and has many stellar accomplishments -- worthy of asha's regard. However, 165/3.7 as a URM is within range (remember a 165 is still 90-91%ile), so its not all that shocking...

Ah I didn't factor in URM. I just remember the 25th percentile for Yale being 170 or 171.

Thanks guys - I had 3 very strong letters of recommendation, I honestly think they were the difference maker. That said I did some pretty awesome stuff over the last few years as an undergrad. I'm sure you all can say the same thing! Look forward to meeting you all soon!!

Universe, why must you hurt me in this way?

(I still can't post images. It was a wrong number. I know they've stopped calling but my heart is still racing.)

do you think they are still waiting on professor feedback? or just waiting to release decisions? I can't imagine why it's taking so long to send out a handful of emails.

At this point they just like being cruel/ taking their time. If they sat down for 24 hours they could finish this, but that would be too considerate.

It just seems like this year's process is way behind schedule. the deadline for financial aid is in 6 days. Why not just end it for their own sake. So weird to me...

At best they are so in a bubble that they don't realize what this process looks like at this point from the outside. At worst they are being malicious. I say its somewhere in between.

It's not malicious. That's crazy talk. I bet a lot of us are on the bubble, and they need to take a closer look at those of us left... and that takes time. Some of us will end of being like Virginia Tech and some us will be like Wichita State.

OMG, what if they have us all in some sort of applicant bracket?
