ouch
3/3 u mean
do we have a sense of what percentage of the yale class has been admitted so far?
i applied over winter break and i want to maintain my delusions
SmolBean
13:25
do y'all think they're done with acceptances for today?
anontron
13:38
@GentleMountainousLlama: based on last year's entries and this year, half-ish
anontron
13:38
but who knows
Today‘s A wave finished?

11:41
we think that single YLS A from today accurate? havent seen anything else

So my uninformed copium is that YLS has been putting all of us who interviewed but haven't heard back yet into a possibly-yes pile --bc they want to wait to see what the whole applicant pool looks like -- and will either admit or waitlist all of us pretty soon after their app closes (Feb 15) once the applicant pool is final. So if u interviewed stay strong friends 😤 one way or another I think/hope the purgatory will end soon
15:49
could we hear something today?
New to LSD/this process, so my bad if this is a dumb question, but has anyone been rejected after an interview or are those interviewed in the potential yes/waitlist pile?
does anyone's status checker change? mine just changed to exclude the welcome paragraph
doubt it means anything but..
16:59
mine often changes to include or exclude the applications material list. I'm not sure if that's what yours is doing but I think we're reading tea leaves either way
what time does Yale typically send decisions? is it unlikely for a wave today?
SmolBean
14:06
i think typically around 4pm est
16:49
I wonder what they're up to
this school is my 13th reason fr, i wish i knew when the next wave (of any kind atp) is
I hear decisions come out on Thursday's usually
any idea on when the next A wave may be?
EyeOfTheHurricane
14:34
hoping for tmr tbh, they haven't had major waves besides the 8th and they released more decisions this time last year. So we're due for larger waves soon
Me annoyed that the phone outage today with AT&T will make me miss a call from Yale LOL. when really I was probably not going to get one anyway

Yale really said “you four get As today” and called it a day
