I wouldn't be so sure. I can imagine a file taking a bit more than a month for a professor's review, followed by another month or so in Asha's office waiting for the next round. Repeat that for two more professors and you're already at close to six months...

Don't give up hope! We're all going to get in! :D

This thread is at its best when we invent explanations for the Yale admissions process an a vain attempt to exert some feeling of control over the process. And also when we discuss Leland Stanford Jr. College.

Check Faye's letter. It appears that you are required to withdraw from everywhere else when you commit to SLS (unlike most schools).

Huh. Interesting. With that approach, I'm surprised that SLS ends up accepting a few people off the waitlist every summer. I always assumed that those summer spots opened up because a few applicants accepted SLS's offer, submitted a deposit, and then withdrew after Yale or Harvard offered them admission off the waitlist. If SLS makes you withdraw upon accepting their offer, then it wouldn't be possible for an SLS admit to hang on to the H and Y waitlists through the summer months.

I wonder if this is the first year that SLS has imposed this condition.

We wouldn't need to invent if we had some sort of sign of what has been going on over the past six months... It would have been nice to at least have a "hold" status or something of the sort.

It would be nice if they e-mailed just to let people know they made it to faculty review...

Well since Asha reads this thread maybe she can take it into consideration for next year! :)

That would be comical if it wasn't so terrifying.


I actually feel bad for Dean Asha, the only Dean I feel that way about. She gets around 1000 perfect applications for 300 spots. So they lose over 2/3 of what could be a perfect class. No other school is this true about.

Actually, Yale's class is under 200. So they lose even more than that.

The class is, but they offer admission to 300 don't they?

All depends on what sense you use the word 'lose' in. You could either use 'lose' to mean "good applicants they can't offer acceptances to" or "good applicants that don't end up going," which means that they lose some of the people they accept.

LSATed!

How about "has to turn away" a large number of perfect candidates.

I guess that makes you more perfect than the other perfect candidates huh :D

Just got a call from a (203) number.

Nervously, I pick up: "Hello?"

My dad answers: "I'm so sorry buddy, I realized after I called you that you might think I was Yale."

Oy.

Shouldn't you remember your Dad's number?

I keep getting phone calls from (302). But it doesn't really quite get me since there is no way I am complete yet lol

It's not his number. He was calling from a friend's phone with a 203 number. Hence his preemption. He's even more invested in this process than I am.
