It would be more helpful to others if you would share an approximation of your stats and when you submitted.
ETA: G-d damn it, congratulations! I always forget that part.


Ah, apologies. 179, 3.9, interrupted school for four years for WE in the Exec. branch.

I don't actually see how that's such a Yale-worthy application, tbh.

I applied late because my first LSAT was a 157 in October. I about died. Got a 10 point increase in the December test and applied in Jan. Took a year off to focus on studying and apps. I didn't realize its weird to hear back all within a month. Is it??

Oh God...I really hope so. I'm unable to do work right now because I'm too hyped up. This is a big weekend for me, so a JS2 would make my life.

They didn't. Asha tweeted yesterday morning that there would only be good news for the rest of the week.

I'm flying up to Boston tomorrow to visit family for the weekend. A JS2 today would be clutcher than Robert Horry from three land.

Yeah there are tons of people like this. I'm just saying that hearing back from all of HYS so quickly is weird. (Also so is saying that Harvard is taking "sooooooooooo long" in that scenario lol)
