Late application, got waitlisted

Postby pta113 » Wed Apr 24, 2013 4:32 pm

I applied very late in the process unfortunately but just heard back yesterday with a lack of definitive news. Aka waitlisted. Anyone been able to get a feel for the size and quality of this year's applicant pool? I'm very curious how many people traditionally get waitlisted and what the odd's are to get off the list in the next few weeks, as opposed to waiting for that random chance someone drops during the summer.

And i know they claim they don't rank applicants on the waiting list, but i've heard otherwise... if anyone has anything to share it would really help me figure out what to expect.

The best strategy to getting off the wait list is to send an email to 203blog@yale.edu with your name, LSAC number, and "My answer to the quiz is (c)" in the subject line. I promise you it'll work.

If you haven't noticed everyone is giving you a hard time because you posted a new thread rather than hitting reply to the original thread.
