Holy crap, I just looked at my fellow fallen. Wow. All of us complete after the new year too. Gotta wonder how an earlier app would have fared with those stats. I mean, with Yale, it's such luck of the draw, assuming you make faculty review. Like, if you applied a month earlier, you're now in a different bundle that goes to different faculty that use different criteria... Geeze.

Same boat.


I think I was 4-5 months complete, and dinged today. If you're still standing it's a good sign. I think they're rejecting people that didn't make it through FR.

i think it's prettyyyyy safe to assume that people getting dinged now made it to faculty review, but are dinged either because of their FR score or dinged amongst the pool of 10/11s. Asha finished reading weeks ago. However, I think these tiny waves every few days might be the conclusions based on bundles as files trickle back from FR.

I'm a no-name (complete in March), but also still hanging in there. My numbers are definitely shy of this last rejection wave, so just waiting for that ding any day now...

Sorry for lack of clarity. yeah - made it to FR, and had a low score, or dinged when put up against other 10s etc.

Or maybe all the dings are the bundles of those who made it to FR and then there will be a giant ding wave at the end with those of us who didn't.

for those who haven't heard wondering details, email says about 100 WL spots, and they accept 0-15 of those people each year, with an average of 10.
