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.
I live in Southern California, and I got the letter today. Postmarked 3/16. Go USPS!
Regarding today's dispute, I think getting into Yale is a pretty simple process
1. Get a 3.9+ GPA
2. Score a 177+ on the LSAT
3. Know how to write well
And then do at least two of the following (more if you falter at the above requirements):
1. Learn a foreign language or three
2. Notch some sort of spectacular athletic achievement (Iron Man triathlon, sail solo across the globe, bronze or better at the Olympics, etc.)
3. Serve a few years in the military
4. Publish a novel
5. Have a few patents to your name
6. Engage in antiquated and preferably dangerous hobbies (trapeze artist, fire juggler, sword swallower, smoke signaler)
7. Master an unusual instrument (didgeridoo, lute, gong)
If Yale had been my goal since Freshman year, I could have done it. But since I wasn't planning on law school until September, that left me in a hole that no 250 could really overcome.
