Mine had to be the worst. I caught a grammatical mistake in it a couple weeks later. I was so burnt out by the time I submitted Yale, I definitely did not put my best foot forward.
You know how there are all these books of "the college essays that got kids into harvard and princeton!", there really should be a book of 250s. I'd actually read it, because the range and variety of these things has to be pretty incredible. And one minor grammar mistake, unless it's a true howler, shouldn't hurt you.

It just seems like this year's process is way behind schedule. the deadline for financial aid is in 6 days. Why not just end it for their own sake. So weird to me...
At best they are so in a bubble that they don't realize what this process looks like at this point from the outside. At worst they are being malicious. I say its somewhere in between.
It's not malicious. That's crazy talk. I bet a lot of us are on the bubble, and they need to take a closer look at those of us left... and that takes time. Some of us will end of being like Virginia Tech and some us will be like Wichita State.

OMG, what if they have us all in some sort of applicant bracket?
So we're all going to lose in the end?[/quote]

Not at all. ONE of you will win.

Meh, if it fits with the rest of your application, then it probably just comes across as genuine, your voice. My guess is that's why they leave it so open ended...
I'll share mine after the cycle so we can determine who wins the cheese contest.
I think it fit in with my app as a whole with the hardship -> optimism concept, but it really laid it on thick. It's a totally true story, but anyone who didn't know it would probably think I was exaggerating.

What day do you guys think will be the last real acceptance day (obviously other than the random add next month or off the waitlist)?

One of the perks of thinking I had absolutely zero shot at Yale was I was very easily able to put the application process behind me (It was only after they persisted in not rejecting me for so long that I started thinking I had a shot...) and haven't looked at my 250 since I submitted. The hard drive my original copy on has since crashed - I could read it through LSAC, but it's a long enough process to get to it that I've been able to stop myself because I know it would just drive me insane.

I'm totally happy to share mine after, as a how to get Yale to not reject you right away if nothing else.

This is really getting to be late in the process. Are there any guesses on when the big WL/ding wave will go out?

Also, what's the current Facebook count?

Sheer speculation, intelligent hypothesis, or fact?

I'll add some sheer speculation that that was sheer speculation.

Are you infering that from the timeline on the website where it says "Apr. 15: Most decisions are made by mid- to late April"?

i spread a lot of senseless speculation but usually try to make clear when im doing that. this ones fact, that they are "striving to communicate all decisions by April 15"

Mine was fairly cheesy. I prefer the term "cute," but hey-- it worked. :roll:

Yale is about as predictable as, well, yale.
