Congrats on Stanford! I do have to say, CR has always come across as a really nice guy considering that with his cycle and numbers he could have been the biggest douche on TLS.

To be fair, I don't recall any posts where CardinalRules seemed like anything other than a nice guy :)

So if I shoot someone then change my name, I'm good, right?

I'm assuming I must have missed something pertinent from the Managamy days. Did he used to troll the CCN threads telling everyone "Better luck next life, suckas!" or something?

no but he was the first to brag oh so modestly (read: obnoxiously) about his own HYS trifecta (some of us don't feel the need to rub in the hys sweep)

Thanks for the good wishes, everyone! I'm really content with the decision and am excited about the next three years. :D

"A little while ago" = a few days ago. Probably I should have withdrawn sooner, but I had a hard time pulling the trigger. I didn't see CB's previous posts, so I'm glad that Kretzy pointed everyone towards the LSN. If Yale doesn't deliver for you, I hope to see both of you on campus in August.

It's gratifying to hear the thoughts of those like existenz, since I had a quite different reputation around here some time ago. Since that time, though, I've tried to reacquire people's respect, and I'm glad to know that it's working and that it can happen. :)

Can you define "a little while ago"?

Also, you never answered my question about which way you're leaning, which I took to mean you didn't want to answer it, which is fine. If, however, it was because you never saw it, please either post or PM.


Are you still considering Harvard's offer?

No, just curious to see what CR chose. As soon as I officially get WLed or rejected by YLS, I will commit to SLS.

Okay, so Yale is definitely still actively making decisions between waitlists and acceptances. I got an email from Craig a few days ago telling me I was one or the other, but he couldn't say which, because I had a scholly deadline coming up. I just emailed again and asked for an update, and he told me they just finished with me a few minutes ago, and I am officially waitlisted.

Disappointed, but mostly relieved to have a final decision.

For those still waiting, they are still actively deciding though, and acceptances are still coming!!!!

Thanks for that info, pleasepickme, my friend in YS waiting. If I hadn't already bothered S, I would call to try to get more info for us, but in any case, I'm rooting for you on the Stanford front!

I'm sorry to muddy the waters, but I called this morning (also because I have an upcoming scholarship deadline), and I was specifically told that YLS was done with acceptances as of Tuesday. According to the person I spoke with, the only decisions yet to be made are regarding who will be waitlisted and who will be rejected.

Here's the official information on decision notifications: rejections and wait list offers will be sent by e-mail, to be followed later by letters via regular mail.

Well, maybe I'm misinterpreting, but that wasn't the impression I got from Craig. He told me Monday I was either accepted or waitlisted, but they hadn't decided which. At 2pm CST today, he said they had just made my decision "minutes ago" and I was waitlisted. Maybe he led me astray on monday, or maybe the phone person is just trying to be consistent with twitter. I don't know...
