No one posts in this thread for 36+ hours, then one post encourages several more in less than ten minutes.

I think we're all anxious to hear something.

Edit: I'm resigned to the waitlist. Although before I was resigned to a rejection. Maybe in a week I'll be resigned to an acceptance.

too busy praying/keeping fingers crossed (makes typing tough)/staring at our phones/emails/mailboxes to post.

or maybe just resigned.

Think positive, they weren't in any hurry to send you a rejection letter.

Where are all the other people in the thread? Everyone in, out or given up?


we should have a resignation thread for all us prospects who have already resigned ourselves to our collective/various fate/s.


I say they should have a couple of seats researved as "lottery picks". Every school should.

Where have you gotten in so far? PM if you want to hide your third dimension :D

I haven't heard anything from anywhere in over two weeks. I am resigned to being resigned. Hope is not fading but enthusiasm is.

How are your other options? I know some of you have fantastic options.

I'm trying to decide between HLS and the Hamilton. For what I want, Yale would be my hands-down choice, though. So I'm hoping they'll help me avoid making a decision on HLS/CLS.

Chiming in to say I, too, have gotten very anxious. Went complete mid-January, avoided the mass of mid-to-late March small envelopes, so I assume I must've reached faculty review.

If it's any consolation, based on past cycles on LSN: for those that have avoided the first two rejection cycles (and if you went complete by end of January or so), there seems to be a very good shot at the WL and still a decent chance for acceptance. Also, they were still outright accepting people this March among those who went complete in December or before. So if you're in that group, I wouldn't say you're necessarily resigned to a WL either.

Hope that comforts some of you guys!

I don't have great options like you do, but I aspire to have them (waiting). So I hope Yale could help me make my decisions as well. My plans could take 10 different shapes by this time next month, but a Yale acceptance would make all of that moot.

Good luck!

I feel that they have either reached their projected number of acceptances or they are very close to it. If it is the latter than they would be looking at the remaining pool to decide who to admit during this last wave. It would make sense to have this long break. They would need to get all the faculty reviews back in the office so they can compare them to all the previously held 10's and 11's and decide who to admit to round out the class.

It's too late to update anything right? I won an award at school and I was selected to present my article from last semester at a national conference this summer.

I'd just update if I were waitlisted.

I'm 99% sure that Yale has not made all their "pre-deposit" decisions yet. There's probably going to be at least one more round of decisions before the end of the month.

To be fair, it's also easy for ConMan to say.

I'd be flattered to get on the waitlist. :oops: It can be like the law school version of Cinema Paradiso-- ever more drama and agony! I'll wait for you, Yale !

In that case treat the "you" as plural!

I gotta jump in here - in the South (at least KY and TN), if you're making pickles, they are inevitably of the sweet variety - you know, bread and butter pickles.

All this accent talk reminded me of this interesting BBC article. http://news.bbc.co.uk/2/hi/7509572.stm

oh, well. I don't think anyone would really count Oklahoma as "The South," anyway.

That article reminded me of one I read in the New Yorker awhile back about the main "dialect coach" in Hollywood. I didn't even know there were dialect coaches. I learned a new word, too: idiolect. I've been trying for weeks to figure out how to casually work it into a conversation so I can look super smart, but I so far I haven't come up with anything. Image
