It seems like a lot of people that submitted late ended up on the waitlist

I believe Asha when she says that timing of application has no bearing on one's chances.

I'm not remotely surprised I got waitlisted (except maybe slightly surprised that it wasn't a straight ding). I don't have Yale-worthy softs and I went to a very unpreftigious UG and had average LORs.

True. But I'm still kind oF surprised they didn't take you. You have amazing numbers! But I believe you have other amazing offers. Wish you the best!

Don't settle for Cambridge. See if the late app had any impact. Sit out a year, firm up your softs, and reapply next cycle on the very first day of apps. If not you might regret it for the rest of your life.

Ah Koala! Congrats on joining us on the WL :D Looks like they finally found those files behind Asha's desk.

So sorry to the dings. Is there anyone still waiting or has Yale released all their initial decisions?

Notice #3? In the world. It's called Cambridge. Congrats on getting in.

That's... not the Cambridge they're talking about. Fortunately, the one they are talking about is number two in the world, so that works out OK.

Edit: Srsly though, why didn't any of you go to MIT law??
