Same. It's terrible, it both raises the stakes of getting into YLS and diminishes the probability---if HLS doesn't admit me straight, what hope is there, rationally, for YLS to do so? But hey, still no rejection email so I can still have some hope ...


it's a quirky enough process that i considered the WL at H encouraging for my chances at Y (on the theory that WL means you're good enough to be admitted, maybe, later)

Someone just posted this morning about being WL'ed at H and s/he got into Y months ago, so there is definitely hope.


I think it's folly to suggest it's apples to apples between H and Y. H's admissions is far more predictable; it's numbers driven. YLS is one of the few legitimate black boxes.

So, do we expect all rejection letters and admission offers to be delivered today? Last year, it happened fairly late in April, if I'm reading last year's thread correctly.

per the tweet from Dean Asha this doesn't seem likely

To be super thorough here, Dean Asha did tweet that most rejections would be out within a week, around a week ago. Assuming her promise holds, her most recent tweet should therefore be about pending acceptances and waitlists. The majority of rejections should arrive soon.

But if she hadn't gotten the files back from faculty, she wouldn't know if they were admit or reject

My analysis depends on the pending applicants to be border/near-admit candidates. There are a lot of assumptions here. To be clear, I am suggesting merely one possible scenario. Another realistic situation could be the one you're referring to--that it's all still up for grabs.

Is it possible that a week ago she thought she would have the files back by now, but crap, she doesn't and hence the tweet? IE more waiting for everyone?

Let's backtrack:

- A week ago she said she would have most rejections out by now
- She just tweeted she's waiting on faculty to hand the last few batches of decisions over.

Most rejections depend on having most decisions completed. Since Dean Asha indicated she would send them in a flood rather than a trickle, the delay in decisions will most likely impede the deliverance of rejections as the key ingredient here is how rejections are sent, in this case mostly altogether or altogether.

Conclusion: ya'll need to wait.

I think, in addition to people she automatically designated for rejection, there should be at least some files that are already back from faculty review and designated for rejection. There are prob some that are borderline that would be held onto for a while longer though.

I mean they used to do a rejection wave in Feb/March and another one later, in April. There's definitely enough files for a massive rejection wave. IDK why they aren't pulling the trigger on it.

Like I said, I think this points to how YLS will deliver rejections this year: Landslide style.

If they sent a rejection wave now and one later after faculty review finishes then people would know if they went on to faculty review or not, which Yale tries to keep under wraps. It makes perfect sense.


Yeah but again they've sent out earlier rejections for the past several years so I don't think that really holds.

I also don't actually get a sense that YLS gives much of AF about applicants' feelings (which is fair, they're not really obligated to).

Mmmmmmmm RIP to the soft, impressionable pretzel that submitted her Y app half a year ago with wide eyes and big dreams.

She has become a stale and salty mess obsessing over the timing of a rejection wave

Maybe Asha didnt reveal quite as much information about when she finished files/when she's just waiting for faculty review last cycle. If she hadn't said anything THEN rejections would be blind because whoever didn't receive any response couldn't assume they went on to faculty review, but we know the first step is finished.

Also, they're behind this year.
