TBF, I think PN's statement holds water for people who applied on or before about December 1 and if you change "high probability you will be accepted" to "high probability you will be accepted OR, more likely, waitlisted." For those of us who applied later, it is patently false.

Did they say whether or not they'll let you know before the NYU deadline?

No. They told me they expected to have most decisions out by April 9. So I probably could have asked for an extension, but I'd already made up my mind.

April 9, huh? That's one week.

Those are major modifications that make for a substantively different statement, but I agree.

Haha yeah that was sort of the point.

The April 9 date is surprising because they finished later in April during the previous cycle. Thank you for posting the information.

Crack, sorry for the confusion. I misread a paragraph in the statement of intention form; you can stay on a waitlist.

BTW they are now sending out dings in the other thread so maybe you are spot on about this deadline thing.

I never doubted you. I may not agree 100% but I have no imperical evidence to suggest that you were wrong. But many people likes to argue... they are all future lawyers - good ones at that.

Seriously, after a week with 5(?) days of activity, this is just cruel. Are you there, Asha?

Does no news mean another iteration of faculty review?

Maybe the long silence means that they're wrapping up their perusals and will unleash one final wave of admits around the end of the week. Dutchstriker was told that they were trying to release most of their remaining decisions by this Friday.

Still, I agree that the week-long silence is a bit eerie.

:shock: I think not knowing is better than knowing... I will approach my mail with caution this week. Unless my phone rings. Go phone!

Look at LSN last year, big dump around the 15th. I suspect the silence is the formation of the rest of the class- but I could be wrong.

40 decisions April 13-15
1 on the 10th and
1 on the 4th

Formation as in they already have who they want, or formation as in they are trying to figure out who else they want?

For some reason, the thought of sending a LOCI to Yale makes me laugh in how ludicrous it seems, which is especially entertaining because the thought of sending one to Harvard or Stanford doesn't seem funny (or stupid) at all.

I'm not sure that I understand, but I think that the second option was what I was trying to say.

I think that there is hope because they probably will tell us on Twitter when they are distributing the last group of acceptances.

Baseless speculation usually flourishes in the absence of information. PN and his "sources" have vanished, leaving a BS vacuum that must be filled. Here is my uninformed guess as to what is going on:

1. The YLS admissions office has reviewed all applications and sent all that qualify to faculty review.

2. The few late January/early February applicants who were Asha-admitted (e.g., tomhobbes, klein) have already been contacted. Everyone who gets accepted from here on out will have gone through faculty review.

3. There are probably hundreds of late January/early February applicants who were neither directly admitted nor sent to faculty review. All of these applicants are rejected, but YLS hasn't gotten around to mailing out the rejection letters yet. My guess-and it's only a guess--is that YLS takes a few days to prepare the rejection letters so that they can send them out in one large batch. This large rejection batch almost certainly goes out this week or next.

4. The late applicants who were sent to faculty review will trickle back to the admissions office as individual faculty finish up. The obvious acceptances will probably get informed on a rolling basis. The rejections and waitlists will probably get held and informed in a batch, probably around mid or late April.

5. Most applicants who applied before January and who have not heard back are probably destined for the waitlist. A few could still be rejected or accepted, depending on the quality of the late applicant pool.

Please critique/flame/amend as necessary.

I think you're mostly right. I really hope I'm in group 1 (or 4) and not group 3.

I think that most of what you say sounds reasonable, too.

Yeah, I agree for the most part. I don't think Asha-admits are done, considering she mentioned that the "very, very, very" last application she looked at two or three years ago was a presumptive admit.

I can only imagine that dealing with applications coming and going from professor to professor is crazy this time of year. I wouldn't be surprised if decisions were done by this Friday (the 9th) and then they switch to letting everyone know.

In other news, I really don't like waitlists. I wouldn't trade one for a rejection, but I despise all of this waiting.
