The reason you weren't admitted was that your application was not successful. Don't give up hope! If you reapply with a successful application next year, you'll certainly get in!

What was the postmark on the letters? Does anyone know and willing to share?

TBF, the letter wouldn't have gotten to Colorado yet.

I also avoided a rejection letter from 06520 today, but I'm not going to breathe a sigh of relief until Monday or Tuesday.


tbf, I've been complete for at least 6 rounds of rejections.

Considering you didn't send your app in until Mid February I'd be suprised if they've looked at it.

You probably got a 10, not enough to get in and not low enough to get rejected... May end up an admit or a waitlist.

Hopefully you realize I just made this all up and while it makes sense it really has no basis in reality.

I can still breathe a sigh of relief, no?

Haven't there really only been 2 "waves" or "rounds" of rejections?

Haven't really kept up but I've been complete for all of them.

You and I both know the underlined isn't true.

I'm pretty sure this is the second big wave of rejections. It's definitely the first time a wave of rejects was posted on Twitter.

Man, you all pay much closer attention to people's names than I do. I suppose it's because I usually don't pay them much attention.

Based on today's rejection batch on LSN, the latest complete date is mid-February. I doubt that they've gotten to us March-complete folks yet. (But, like you, I'll still breathe sigh of relief if I get no mail from Yale over the next two days.)

Even only having been complete 3 weeks, I was happy to only see a new Netflix movie in my mailbox this morning.

tbf, I honestly haven't. Wrote off Yale long ago when I was skipped for JR1s, and Tautology is in Colorado so looks like I'm probably safe.

Yeah that's what I was trying to say in that first post on this page. Failed miserably.

No one knows... That part of the process is really unknown. It may be they reviewed you quickly or it may have been you just didn't get there.

Sorry the the ding, I expect mine sometime soon.

Let's revert this discussion back to YLS admissions, shall we? :P

Again, to those who got the ding: I feel your plight. :(

Two quick questions to those in the know:

1). Does YLS offer acceptances absent a phone call from anyone @YLS? (ie. by snail mail?)

2). Is it safe to say that 70%-90% of the YLS class is filled by now? :?


In response to #1: no, unless you're an international student. Then, you will be emailed.
