I'm far from a shoo-in. Acceptance to Yale would be the greatest miracle of my life, ha.


Excited to join this crowd, and best of luck to all.

PS: KJD=???


Kindergarten - JD (i.e., straight through, no work experience after college).

I guess it's because, without a status-checker, we rarely have any updates to post.

There is! Not everyone who is accepted has a facebook though of course, so it doesn't give an accurate headcount though :)

jettison63 wrote:Well according to these numbers (http://yale.lawschoolnumbers.com/) if they've admitted 245 and 203 matriculated it gives them a matriculation rate of about 82.8%. If they want to fill 250 seats, at the going matriculation rate they would need to admit 56.76 more students. (47/82.8 )*100=56.76

Of course this is assuming a lot. Maybe the matriculation rate increases as the cycle wears on, I don't know how current the numbers are, etc.

Here's to hoping.


Nah, they are looking to fill about 200 seats. 245-250 is the golden number.

Edit: Now I understand what you're saying. Sorry, I'm an idiot. But yeah, pretty sure that matriculation rate isn't a constant.

Even so, I wonder how many people are in the group, for ballpark estimates. Are any admitted students members of the group? Feel free to PM me.

So, for late Feb submitters, are we looking at April as the most likely month to hear back - for good or for bad?

I submitted late Feb, and I seriously doubt I'll hear back before mid-April. But that won't stop me from obsessing about it every day until then.

This seems like the TCR, except possibly for autoadmit/autoreject.

Think of your undergrad professors and how slow they were at grading essays.

This is relevant to my interests.
Thank you Yale for not dinging me on sight!
