I just looked over LSN. I know it's a small group, but it actually gave me MORE hope

For the most part, the posted rejections for those complete in March are not surprising rejections, and a majority of people are still listed as pending

As such, I am going to focus my energy on getting excited for NYU.

Good luck ya'll!

How were you able to find the FB group? I've searched all over facebook and Google and haven't been able to find it.


Look through this thread over the last few days -- people from the other side report the numbers back to us

This is ridiculous. How big do they need their waitlist to be?

Asha might be doing another pass through everybody left to hand-pick the WL.

Might just be me, but I'm personally OK with the wait at this point ¯\_(ツ)_/¯

Cycle has been messy:

in at Columbia, Berkeley and others
Waitlisted at Michigan, Chicago, Harvard
Rejected: UPenn, Stanford, and Georgetown

Few more days to go I guess.

Are you URM? I am, and everyone I've spoken to highlights the unpredictability of URM cycles - shared rejection from penn too. Related, one of my URM friends is at Yale with low 16x LSAT, and was rejected from half of the t13.


I am a URM. And I hadn't heard of it being this unpredictable. Granted I haven't heard back from NYU either. My numbers are on the lows like low 16x LSAT. 3.79 GPA

Looking at some of those rejections makes me feel better about not applying (I started writing my 250 and was getting ready to). I feel reassured that I wouldn't have had a chance anyway.

Some baseless speculation:

Yale knows exactly when scholarship deadlines at certain other schools occur because they get emails from people frantic to get answers before the deadline. They could easily treat the pool of remaining applicants as an effective waitlist and decide after for instance Chicago's scholarship deadline tomorrow how many additional acceptances to make once they see how many of their current admits defect for full rides elsewhere.

On our end we might see a handful of acceptances after a major scholarship deadline (or none if only a few people chose the money,) then the rest of us could be divvied up among waitlists and rejections.

I'm starting to think that faculty review is likely complete or nearly complete, so the dynamics of Yale's decision timing would from now on be driven largely by other schools' scholarship and commitment dates.

This would be so shitty. So they're waiting to see who turns down a full ride on the CHANCE they get into Yale?

I think they meant people who were already accepted but withdraw once they accept the scholarship offer.

Can't you just say you'll take the money and then turn it down after getting into Yale? Committing means withdrawing from all other offers, not withdrawing from a school you haven't heard from yet no?

No. They would have no way of knowing that (and no one should do that). They could be waiting to see how many of the already admitted people choose a full ride over their Yale admission, because you are expected decline previous offers of admission when accepting a scholarship. Then they can decide whether they need to send a few more acceptances, or just waitlist and reject everyone who's left.

Correct. Yale should be anticipating seeing exactly how many people will do that on each of the upcoming scholarship deadlines.
