That being said, I don't expect to get into Yale but I just felt the need to say it (or to post it I guess).
Have a great weekend everyone.
I think the difference between Yale and Harvard is small enough that differences in academic programs, campus culture, location, etc should weigh heavily into your consideration. This would especially be the case if you are looking at a joint degree (especially JD/MBA, JD/PHD). There are a lot more people that choose Harvard over Yale than any individual CCN over Harvard, so I think the comparison might be farther off than you speculated. Anyway, congrats on your acceptance into Harvard and I'm sure you are a very competitive candidate for Yale!
This is mathematically improbable. I would in fact dare say it's mathematically impossible.
Yea.. I think probably no more than 10, 15 at MOST people in any given year go to Harvard over Yale. I can see more people choosing SLS over Yale who want to practice in California. But for those ppl going to school in new England anyway, I just dont see it - Yale's yield is absolutely ridiculous, and the few who turn down YLS are spread over HS and full ride schollies elsewhere.
Now is it mathematically "possible" that in a given year, 15 ppl choose H over Y and only 14 choose CLS or NYU over H? (I buy it more for Chicago, since they are a tiny class size). Sure, but yea unlikely.
