Yep. I'm hardly surprised at this point.

See you all mid-April when WL's go out.

I know this thread likes to avoid the topic of "Yale," but...

Twitter: Call screening makes (203) sad. Maybe we'll just start skipping over the people who don't pick up. --LinkRemoved--

Lol!? They really seem to like the fact that their tweets cause mass hysteria ...

I can't imagine someone screening a (203) during admissions season. I'm sure when it's my turn next cycle I'll answer every wrong-number-telemarketer-credit-card-company-automated-voice-call lol!

:D

Thanks!

Yeah, I got a phone call from 203 yesterday.

I was driving down the freeway and almost got into a car wreck when I saw the number on my phone. The phone call screening comment might have even been about me because I wasn't able to pick up the phone in between looking for an exit, calming myself down, and trying to not to crash the car. I pulled over and quickly returned Craig's call. He was incredibly nice on the phone.

Good luck to everybody still waiting! Without having IRL friends applying to law school to be neurotic with, TLS has been just about the only thing keeping me sane.

I submitted in the first week of January and I went complete the last week in January. If anybody wants to read my 250 or wants any more info I'm happy to provide that sort of thing over PM.

You made (203) sad, you must make it up to her, send some flowers and a gift cert to a spa! :)

I know what you mean about not having law school friends IRL. My friends and my prof. all think I should go for a Ph.D. in CS instead. TLS has been my friend.

So are you committed to attending?

I'm not 100% sure. I want to go into academia so it would be the sensible choice but the more I look at Harvard the more impressed I get. I've also never been to Boston or New Haven so I think I'll need to visit both schools before committing. Michigan also isn't totally out of the running - free law school would be quite appealing - but I suspect that my age and income will result in a pretty decent financial aid package from HY which will blunt some of the advantage.

Not gonna happen. Everybody in my family went to Cal or UCLA. Hating on Stanfurd (and USC) is in my blood!

(But seriously, Stanford is an awesome school)

You've still got time. It seems like there's only a weak correlation between submit date and the date of one's 203 call and I suspect that Yale still has a good number of admission decisions to make.

Congratulations, nota! Your profile on LSN looks exactly like what I think of when I try to imagine the perfect Yale applicant. To be honest, I'm surprised that you didn't get in sooner.

You're impressive. My only problem with you is that you make me feel rather pessimistic about my own chances. :)

We all make mistakes. . .

(in the interest of full disclosure, Crack is referring to the fact that I spent some time at Stanford)

Congratulations to notanumber from this "browser" (not "lurker")!

Some readers may be wondering if in his conversation with you, Craig acknowledged that you had been addressed by name in an Ask Asha entry a few weeks ago?

It's funny how LSN and TLS only have juggernaut acceptances, in general, for Yale. Yet, we all sit here and think that we have a shot because our essays will win us favor in "holistic admissions."
