Was the yale R wave the biggest of the cycle so far? It certainly seems like it
GoldDustWoman
10:38
do i have to search school by school to see when applicants who applied at a certain time heard back
InternalizedRoadrunner
13:03
how do people get Yale rejections
InternalizedRoadrunner
13:04
status checker or email
InternalizedRoadrunner
13:04

17:35
status checker and email
When was the Yale E wave?

i caught the R

Question about how this site works - why are recent decisions not reflected on peoples profiles? Like it will say A at GULC, but I’d you see them listed as an applicant it still says pending
StudiousSiren
12:14
And also some applicants you can’t find if you search them on a schools page, even though you can search public or private profiles

how important is application timing for Yale?
LuxuriantAbjectWalrus
15:18
I know they say that timing doesn't matter but does the data actually reflect that
SaltedToad

@LuxuriantAbjectWalrus: ive heard not at all

For Yale is this just people that didn't make faculty review or are there people that applied oct/nov?
Seems like late nov/dec so far
They def did not make faculty review
if they applied in Dec
Will it say “rejected” in your status checker? Or something else?
I haven’t gotten the R email but I’ve been hanging on forever. Kinda just want them to do it already lol
What percentage of applicants are on LSD, do you think? 30 percent? Lower? Higher?
18:13
I think 30% is a good estimate based on proportion of acceptees reported on here to actual on 509 reports
