Fair enough!
I don't want anyone to think I'm talking trash... I obviously would have loved to go to YLS. I've just had a long history of feeling doubted because of the disadvantages I've faced, so it gets a little frustrating, especially when compared to HLS's relative enthusiasm about a little ol' prole like me.

And Roll Tide.

I know it's not the only thing - K-JD doesn't help, but I can't exactly easily get fantastic impressive work experience (or even work that will service my loan debt tbh) straight out of college with a liberal arts degree from a state school, so the cycle of disadvantage continues.
It means a lot to me to feel wanted and recruited, and HLS has been doing that since the moment I went complete. It's hard to overlook.
Like I said, I'm waiting until after ASW to make a final decision, but the gut feeling is that HLS is a better place for me.

RTR :D

Didn't we decide based on something that it was ~ a 10% chance, with 10 getting off a 100 person list?

10000 ppl waitlisted 4 admitted. HTH

No they said in the email "less than 100" (that will accept the WL offer, more will be offered it). They said they have accepts anywhere from zero to twenty with an average of ten.

Trying to decide, don't want to piss them off as they've clearly been working hard, but then again would like a heads up if there isn't going to be movement for a while.

If I were you, I would. It shows that you are invested in the entire process and not just ignoring it until you hear back from them

But then, I only got WLed, so what do I know?

See comments on this post for why you should email, since they said they released all decisions and all...

The weird thing is I know at least 5 other people waiting to hear, too. So I know I'm not a lone straggler.

Yeah, I'm at odd as far as what to do here as well. I'm assuming there will be no movement the rest of this weekend, but I'm not sure if I should email them or not. Probably wouldn't hurt.

Maybe they're going to admit the first person to show some interest...

Not really, but you may have a point about showing interest

Just went and reread this quote from the initial email Yale sent out for completed applications: "We ask that you please do not contact the Admissions Office to inquire about the status of your application; frequent phone and e-mail inquiries delay consideration of applications." Maybe this point is moot now?

I think it probably is. I went and re-read some of the forum from last year, and the kids hanging on without answers til towards the end, and it seemed like a few had simply never received an email when the actual decision was made (and were told that there was a decision a couple weeks prior, etc.).

Yeah, after reading that thread, I just sent an email off. We'll see how they respond; very unfortunate indeed

wert, did they actually say to someone that they had released all decisions or was it just the twitter update 16 april that they were expecting to 17 april?

Okay...If someone tweets we expect to do something on a day and then it appear it didn't happen it's reasonable in my mind politely inquire about whether it happened and you are just unaware or if it didn't happen.
