Yale just took a hit to let you in! They must really like you! Congrats!

This is a very strange comment. Somewhat of a backhanded compliment even.

Even if it was intended as a backhanded compliment, I don't get it. Was the comment supposed to be a reference to Lawyering's numbers? Lawyering's LSAT is above Yale's 25th percentile and her GPA is above the 75th percentile. Over a quarter of last year's admits had worse LSAT scores while very few had better GPAs.

Oh, and before I forget: Congratulations lawyering!

Agreed, live it up tonight (and for the rest of the semester/summer)! I've seen some pretty strange posts from this Renaixenca character, so I wouldn't give much consideration to his/her comments.

I think that the poster was making the superficial observation that her LSAT was below Yale's median. The comment was in somewhat poor taste, but I wouldn't take it too seriously.

Hey M, what kind of softs did you have? I'm just curious, as you pretty much swept everything on the first day they were making calls and you're right from undergrad. Know your numbers rock, but still. Just wondered.

Especially considering a 171 is probably only one LSAT question different from their 173 median.

Great avatar, crackberry; I've always liked that best about you. (My forehanded compliments are okay, but I feel that my backhanded ones are always where I've excelled.)

And congrats, lawyering!

No, it's OK. I'll PM you with the softs. Just for the record, I got Stanford on the second day that they made calls, not the first day, and I was in the January rather than December group for YLS.

Didn't you have to wait awhile on Berkeley?

I had to wait forever on Berkeley but did get in via administrative review (Dean Tom). FWIW, I didn't write a Berkeley-specific PS or a 4-page PS, didn't have any worthwhile work experience, and generally disregarded all of the personal preferences that Dean Tom discusses in his article on this forum. Some of those factors could have contributed to the wait.

This thread has basically deteriorated (improved?) to a point where the six or seven of us (Kronk, CardinalRules, tomhobbes, Dignan, BioE and myself plus Kretzy sometimes) come to pontificate and make fun of each other. And we only sometimes talk about Yale.

Asha is probably sitting there looking like :lol: though; it must be more fun than correcting our Yale-related fallacies. Also, FTFY.

tbf, tomhobbes is f'ing hilarious and the originator of Violent Centaur Entourages.

I agree, I like tomhobbes. He apparently feels I am unworthy of forehand compliments though.

Hey, I don't mind :D Seriously, though, I think that's just the nature of the Yale thread. Not that many people get accepted to Yale in the first place, and a large proportion of those who do choose not to use TLS. Ergo, not many people to ask questions/talk about Yale. The majority of the YLS questions go in the In at Yale and Yale 2013 threads, too.

And the Violent Centaur Entourage thing cracks me up!

Really? I remember trying to find the In at Yale thread the other day and having to scroll through like 6 pages before I found it. I think the last post was like Feb. 20 or something.
