Also CT, but I don't know if USPS is working today. UPS and FedEx came by, though, but I doubt they'd send rejection letters via those companies.

Just got rejected via email:

Dear Mr. Elshal,

We regret that we are unable to offer you admission for the fall of 2013. This year the Law School expects to receive approximately 2,500 applications for an entering class of 200 students. Given this ratio, many highly-qualified applicants have to be turned away. The faculty, all of whom read admissions files, work hard to reach these difficult decisions as fairly as possible, knowing the outcome will inevitably prove disappointing to many people.

Thank you for your continued patience throughout the admissions process. We appreciate your interest in Yale Law School and extend to you our best wishes for the future.

Sincerely,

Craig Janecek
Director of Admissions

First person to get dinged by Yale? What an honor :(

I'm sorry guys. Did any January applicants get dinged? Not sure whether i made the cut, or if they simply haven't made it to my app yet.

Sorry all...

I wonder if these go out in waves...?

My email box is empty and I'm starting to unreasonably get my hopes up for a waitlist...

UVA waitlisted me for UG and LS. Stupid Thomas Jefferson and his beautiful campus. This is my first straight-up rejection. So Cambridge it is for me.

You mean applicants? I applied in Jan and have received nothing. I think they just haven't gotten to our applications yet (three faculty reviewers probably take a bit of time).

Hmm, November complete. Silence, still.

WL? Maybe hope still exists? Or the axe just takes longer to fall?
