Odds on any more acceptances going out ever?


Asha hates us all. Yale will be accepting 14 students this year, indenting to seat a class of 11.


Or she hates us b/c she can't find many autoadmits and has to basically send the whole applicant pool to faculty members, who are taking their goddamn time...

Well maybe if more of us had won a Nobel Prize, she would have found some more auto-admits!

If Yale accepted 14 students, they'd end up with a class of 15.

I intend to sneak in under the radar.

i did this for the harvard thread, but i think this thread would enjoy this information too

data dump, using LSN figures from three application cycles (2009-2012):

464 H admits
114 Y admits
182 S admits
Total: 760 offers

CROSS-ADMITS = 166 total (receiving 382 offers)
50 HYS
3 YS, no H
71 HS, no Y
42 HY, no S

50, or 9.2%, of the admits are offered admission to all three.
116, or 21.3%, of the admits are offered admission to two of the schools.
378, or 69.5%, of the admits are offered admission to only one of the schools. (Of these, 301 were offered admission to Harvard, 58 to Stanford and 19 to Yale, according to my calculations.)

20% of Harvard admits get into Yale
26% of Harvard admits gets into Stanford

47% of Yale admits get into Stanford
81% of Yale admits get into Harvard

29% of Stanford admits get into Yale
67% of Stanford admits get into Harvard

You aren't really working if you aren't getting paid, are you? More like volunteering imo..

You're "investing" in your education and exploring potential career options. At least that's what i always told my parents and my freshman self, then i got real and found a paid internship.

I call it employment, that's what i put on my resume for LS and when seeking employment after college.

I put my unpaid full-time internship as employment, since it was during the summer and not during the school year. I feel like it's more appropriate under employment if it's full-time and over a vacation.

I used category (a) for extracurriculars, (b) for paid employment, and (c) for unpaid internships. I fit all three categories onto a one-page bullet-point list. I separately included a two-page resume, and I answered the post-school activities section in paragraph form. After submitting, I heard from Asha via webinar that she prefers one-page resumes, so I was worried about that until I got in. At the end of the day, it looks like there is very little consistency across the board in terms of how applicants answer these questions.

Employment, n, 1.The condition of having paid work

If you did not get paid, you were not employed... Just to be entirely truthful, mention that it was an unpaid internship.

Who knows, now, that he or she would attend Yale, if accepted, irrespective of other admittances?

Too many commas; I do not understand - 2 commas is my max per sentence, but even that was pushing it on two occasions: writing and reading (it's not my fault, I blame the fact that I was never given the opportunity to get a real education).

Semicolons, colons, and dashes aren't any better! Here:

And I would probably say me, unless Harvard came through with some serious aid.

You should check out the New Yorker, they stick like 10-12 commas in every sentence. Drives me nuts.

On-topic: I would attend the ASWs of my other top two choices but I'm 90% sure I'd end up at YLS.

Hypothetically, if one had a 4.0/179 would a scholarship be awarded?

No but you could brag that you have the same stats as Elle Woods.

(What she was thinking going to HLS I don't know. She was Yale secure with those stats)

Maybe Yale wasn't big on fashion merchandising.
