But I have no inside information, sadly.


some are admits from last year who deferred. they might have changed the system since my friend spoke with that professor, who knows? Rejections did roll out earlier this year than in past years...

Yeah a disproportionately high number of YLS admits defer so I bet 20 or so of those in the FB group were admitted in previous years.


Yeah most likely because they had to go save another orphanage in Haiti or write another oscar winning screenplay.

Yale didn't call me :(


I bet they're still in complete shock from my masterful resume, brilliant personal statement, and deeply incisive 250. They're probably deciding if they should admit me to the J.D. program or just appoint me as a full professor. Yeah. That's it.

Most of the previous mid-week calls were made after 5PM EST. So, we can probably still freak out for another 2 hours or so.

+10. Why would you give this information to a group of people that are, on the whole, obsessive about this stuff!?! The only reason I sleep at night is because I assume that the adcomms are sleeping too. Don't tell me they're working after hours!!!!

Congrats Veritas, that's awesome!!

If you don't mind my asking, when did go complete? And also, if you don't mind sharing: what kind of numbers/softs did you have? Congratulations again, that's so awesome!

Edit: Also, you should probably change your username to luxetveritas, lest you be thought a Harvard man ;)

Joining the group doesn't mean you've decided on Yale. They cleverly invite you to join so that you can receive more info, updates, etc. Plus the fact that you can't see anything about the group and who's in it unless you join = I think it's fair to say that the majority probably end up joining.

Asha's tweets are made slightly more amazing by the fact she was an FBI special agent.

Your stupid secret facebook club is stupid and for losers. I didn't want to join anyway. I have my own secret facebook club that is way cooler than your stupid facebook club.

The YLS admissions process is probably the only one that involves wiretapping. That's why it takes so long.

Because Yale - more than any other school - admits people who self-select away from LSN and TLS.

Non-traditional applicants and the like.

AKA people with more important things to do than revel in the narcissism that is LSN or the neuroticism that is TLS.
