No more admits or rejections? LSN has been quiet for 2 days.

I emailed them almost a week ago to do just that, and I haven't heard back yet. Deadline's on Friday...

Hey guys, is it kinda weird if I haven't heard from Yale at all? Applied late January, high 170s/3.9ish. I'm not really expecting an acceptance call, but then im in Boston and the batch of rejection letters sent out mid-March should have gotten to me by now - does Yale just regularly keep people waiting until April?

Unfortunately, yes. According to last year's cycle, there were huge batches of acceptances, waitlists, and rejections on 4/15 and 4/20.

I know. I'm just saying that you shouldn't give up hope just because a 3.88/180 was dinged. We don't know what soft factors this individual had, nor do we know the quality of his/her essays and LORs.

Pretty much my numbers and I'm fully expecting a ding. Plus that way I will be able to show genuine excitement if I do get a call. I'm too stoic for those things normally.

It looks as though there will be no movement today, judging by their Twitter silence. Considering last week's flurry of activity, it's not surprising. Also, I understand that there is a major storm reaching the New Haven area early this week.

Got my rejection letter today after my undergrad finally delivered the mail, dated 3/16. No surprise.

On LSN some people put $$$ info next to their Yale acceptance. I thought Yale doesn't give out any money? Unless it is need based aid but why would people put that on LSN?

I am jealous on both accounts.

Any guesses about the money?

It is all need based, but I guess some people think it's useful to put info about their need-based aid on LSN. Or they want to make it seem like they got a merit scholarship.

Whose profile are you looking at? 120k sounds suspicious. I heard somewhere that the max they give is 20k per year.
