I feel like now might be a good time to pass the hell out and then wake up in 8 hours when it's all over.

I think that with stats like yours you're actually the only one that's allowed to stay awake

Stats only tell part of the picture, especially at Yale.

Hi friends do we know to what degree Yale takes into consideration application updates? Aka like do they add them to your file or nah? I got accepted to/presented at a conference (Baby's First Conference™) and got my thesis published (Baby's Second Publication™) so I sent them an e-mail after each of the two aforementioned notifications and got the same response as anyone gets from Clarence Thomas aka silence

If your update comes in before Asha looks at it, it goes in your file, from what I understand.

Once Asha looks at it, it either goes to the reject pile, the faculty, or the admit pile (very rarely). If your update comes in at this point, if you're in the former and latter cases, your update is moot. In the middle case, it's not clear if they'll update your file if they get it after Asha's initial screening but before sending it to faculty. In any case, once it's sent off to faculty, faculty won't see any updates to it.

At that point, the only way updates will matter will be if you end up on the waitlist.

For what it's worth, so far, all of the reported rejection on LSN applied/went complete in 2016.

Just got an email... from Harvard. Letting me know I'm confirmed on their waitlist.

Scared the bejeezus out of me for a second, though.

Same and is it just me or is "waitlist update" a misleading subject line?

Yes, awfully deceptive, especially since it came so long after the initial waitlist

I mean, they do say there won't be waitlist movement until early May, so I wasn't really expecting anything on that front.
