Yes, I did. I don't think you have any reason to feel to queezy though. From your acceptances and the way you present and articulate yourself on here I'm sure you put together a great app, and with your numbers you have as good of a chance as anyone. Is YLS the top choice for you?

I'm glad my first ding of the cycle will be Yale.

ARE YOU NOT ENTERTAINED?!

Oh snap. Shits getting real for me now that we are in to the January completes. Big time congrats again, though.

Ditto to the above. It was a nice dream while it lasted Yale...

I like to think my 12/19 complete is still being read by a really fastidious professor.

I wouldn't worry at all about that. I think today was the first January complete acceptance (that was reported at least). You are still well within the window.

FWIW, found out that in the 10-11 cycle, rejections were by snail mail. That could really, really suck. In 2005 it seems to have been by email.

Also, Worm, I think you're far from an auto-ding (unlike me :( ) with the latest score + URM status. Though I suppose that Yale is the school where retakes might hurt you. In any case, my point is that they haven't even started accepting people at your submit date, as far as I know - so don't lose hope just yet ;)

Oh, nice, very useful info :) Too bad LSN doesn't indicate things like that, as far as I can tell, so it's hard to gather statistics on it.

I feel pretty similarly. It's entirely because I want to pretend the probable ding won't hurt me as badly as it will.

Shit, does Asha insist on the Oxford comma? Strike one for YLS.

Did you say "pour over" instead of "pore over"?

I agree wish Asha on this. Seriously.
