Question about the Yale app: I don't see a space for any race/ethnicity demographic info. If I filled that out with LSAC, would that be passed along in the CAS report?

Good Luck everyone! We're...seven(?) weeks into 1L here, and I couldn't be happier to have made the choice to come here. Spend time polishing that 250 word essay and cover letter, and then hope for the best!

Regarding the post-college activities supplement - if you've just been working for the past four months (graduated in May 2016) do they expect you to write an essay about what you've done or is a paragraph about your employment and responsibilities enough? Just wasn't sure about the extent that one had to go to in this piece. Thanks!

I'm pretty sure Samuel Danforth was referring to the personal statement.

Also, wouldn't it be great if Dean Asha were to return to blogging? Miss those blog posts.

Yeah, don't see that on the app. Just space for a generic supplement.

No cover letter guys. But that was a spectacular way to cause some chaos on this thread, Mr danforth

Guys is Yale the only school in T14 that has this requirement?

If I remember correctly, other schools just need you to fill in brief details in the Education or Employment sections. Thanks

Did anyone receive a confirmation email after submitting? How many business days did it take to receive such a notice?
