Yes but there's also an LSAC charge as well that is... $25 maybe?

I mean, your numbers are perfect, and Yale really cares about strong academic LoRs, which I can only assume you had (based on that GPA). You didn't "slip through"-you totally earned that acceptance! Be proud! :D

Only 179/4.0? Man, Yale is really suffering from the drop in applicants.

:D

Congrats, dude.

Just saw Yale Law Admissions tweet the following:
"Starting the week off right with admit calls."
Good luck everyone!

I don't remember Yale calling so often last year. I thought they only called on the 17th and 23rd last year where as, according to Twitter, tonight will be the third round of calls in a week. I don't know what it means if anything.

It says "weekend," so we may not see any admits next Monday. I hope we do though.

Congrats CrazyRobin!

So I now understand what the "POST-college activities" section should look like (short, basic sentences). But now I'm confused about what the "college activities" section should look like. Is it just a bullet for each activity, and a short prose description afterward?

I've searched the forum and didn't find much helpful (I'm probably searching vague criteria). And a search on the 203 blog doesn't bring up anything (again, probably vague criteria "college activities", etc.).

heres the link to asha's blog where she talks about it:

http://blogs.law.yale.edu/blogs/admissi ... tters.aspx

so as she implies, any style is fine.
