Tanks brah. Now that I'm legal, if you ever find yourself in Manhattan we should grab brews.

ETA: that goes for anyone ITT. I'm pretty sure I'll be needing someone to either slap me or hold me

Good luck future Yalies!

The TLS community was such a big help for me during my application cycle last year. I'm starting my first year at YLS in a few weeks :o , if anyone has any questions or wants any feedback with their YLS application please feel free to PM me!

Agree that it was really helpful although it can make you a bit neurotic. Rising 2L also happy to help!

I just assumed 173/3.8 is either URM or Amazing Softs. Is that unwarranted?

Neither is necessarily the case. Non-URM applicants do get in here with median and below-median stats even without special softs. A combination of an exceptional PS and 250 and tremendous LORs can be enough.

I'm hoping that's me. I have no idea what to write about for my 250 though.

The topic itself is far less important than what you do with it.

I think it's actually easier to write first and settle on the topic later. Think of three to five subjects in different subject categories (i.e., not three to five academic-themed subjects). Then just start taking some notes and writing out ideas for each of them. See if any of these ideas start developing into something promising. If necessary, take some notes on new subjects as they come to mind. Much more than forcing yourself into a particular topic before writing, this approach will allow you to more easily land on the subject where you actually have the most thoughtful and interesting things to say.

Wouldn't you call "an exceptional PS and 250 and tremendous LORs" special softs?

In this case by special softs we were referring to rhodes/olympic medalist/astronaut/bestselling author/playboy model

Good luck bros. Applying to Yale is a hell of a ride. Let me know if you have questions that I may or may not be able to answer.

When did you apply and when did they render a decision?
