Ha. sorry for the confusion. Denial like "in denial of the fact that it's (almost for sure) gonna be a no/wl for us waiters"

also, sprinkling love and light now that I've expelled my saltiness

I've never had a pretzel sprinkled with love and light. Salt and butter usually does the job for me. Or pimento cheese... :mmmmmm:

Either way, welcome back, and thanks for the positive vibes!

Do you guys think that they're just trying to ciphen through the reject piles at this point to pick out the waitlist candidates? It'd be low key awesome if they could just end my admission cycle already

I have a strong sense that this is accurate. I think they've rejected the "no chance" people and are mulling over the rest for the WL

Looking that way, isn't it? I was really sad about Yale last night, but I put on a red (crimson?) sweater this morning and grabbed my HLS keychain and am trying to focus on that upcoming move.

It's really nice to know that such likable folks are headed that way too.

Has YLS accepted any non-URM's this cycle? Just from a cursory glance at TLS/LSN it seems like an overwhelming number of admits are URM

Yes, YLS has accepted non-URMs this cycle...If your "overwhelming number of admits" doesn't mean 100% of admits, then you already knew this.


of course they have. On LSN, at least half of admits are non URM.

Right, I obviously am aware that they have accepted non-URM's but it seems like there have been an enormous focus on URM's at Yale in comparison to other schools
