how did you send the LOR


I had my recommender put it in a university envelope and sign over the seal. Then I signed the outside of the envelope, printed my name above my signature, and put my LSAC number below it. Put it in a manilla envelope with my LOCI (mentioned that I was enclosing the LOR as part of my LOCI) put my LSAC number and signature on the LOCI, send it all in.



Question: Can one email an addendum or no?


I wouldn't considering Yale is one of the only schools that requests paper applications from LSAC.

i was planning on sending one this week, and having it cross paths with a rejection would just be awful.

Just got the rejection letter. Dated 1/27. I also live a few hours from New Haven. Stats and dates in LSN (in profile).
Disappointed but trying to remain hopeful about other pending apps...
I hope their rejecting me so quickly has more to do with my submit/complete dates than it does with my candidacy (I thought all non-auto-ding URMs waited longer for a rejection).

Dear Yale Twitter Feed,
I hate you. You make me anxious every Saturday.

Love,

Hmm... I checked again on their website but it doesn't say how to send in extra stuff, nor is there anything specific on their blog.

I'm wondering if it's too much to now mail the addendum via regular mail although I sent it in a few days ago via email... I don't want to incur the wrath of the YLS deities! what to do! :?

I just got the ding letter too. My first one. I'm in San Francisco. Dated 1/27. Sent app in mid-November.

Of course the letter arrives incredibly fast, while the letter with "Decision" from Cornell (which I'm hoping is good news) is nowhere.

I can't tell if I'm glad to be off campus today or terrified that I have no way to check my mail until tomorrow... I'm fully expecting that yale and stanford are dingalings awaiting my return. :shock:

All the rejections reported so far on LSN had an LSAT below 170, FWIW. Although with your numbers and URM status you definitely should have been in contention for Yale.

Edit: And redhead77 has an LSAT of 171, so that blows the idea that they decided to cut out all but the most impressive sub-170s.

I have a 176 and I got dinged. Not that I expected to get in, of course. Just saying that I don't think there's a distinct numbers pattern going on.

Both of my numbers are below yours. Hopefully my story will help somewhat, but doubtful that much. I am prepared for my letter in the coming months.

Sorry to all those dinged today.

I wanted to write my 250 about dreaming of attending Hogwarts and how going to YLS would let me fulfill that dream.
