Getting quoted by Asha on Twitter like the boss you are. It's like we have a celebrity in our midst.

I guess maybe some dings soon, IF we're lucky...


Several days ago, Asha tweeted that she had "only...today" finished reading files and that many files were still out in faculty review. So, I think her tweet tonight could POTENTIALLY mean that all files are now back from faculty review. But this is just speculation.


Ooooooooh GOTCHA. well damn.

Minor observation: estimating admits from the Facebook group through a "members+invited" formula definitely double counts at least some people. People who can't join at first invitation (due to their fb-associated email being different from the one admissions has on file) probably request a new invite be sent to a different email, leaving an extra invite hanging out there. Invitation counts indicate unique e-mail addresses, not necessarily unique people. No clue how large this effect is, but it's there.

Did not apply at Yale but Dean Asha tweeted my photo from Michigan's Preview Weekend.

I guess it is looking like we'll have to wait for the weekend to see any movement?

New goal: get the YLS thread up to 180 pages before they send out decisions

DON'T GO INTO 181 UNLESS YOU WANT DARKEST TIMELINE

Considering her tweet said decisions would be "ongoing" I'm surprised there hasn't been movement yet. This weekend sounds good to me.

Do y'all know why they wait to release rejections? Is it because they don't want people to "guess" if they were straight rejects or went to fr?

Seems like a good reason to me. Another reason could be that they just don't have the time for this, so they get to the rejection emails once they've read all the files. Given Asha's twitter update, it could be this weekend :?

Almost as cruel as getting married on April fools day...and yet such is the blush dress situation I'm in. *holds flowers and constantly refreshes email*
