I applied nov 18th and my app went complete on nov 23rd and i survived the E wave. Does that mean I made it to faculty review or based on my timeline is my app still waiting to be reviewed?
14:30
@carmelynn I have the same question, what do we think the date cutoff is?
16:13
@jdwannabe: probably thanksgiving

Was the yale R wave the biggest of the cycle so far? It certainly seems like it

how do people get Yale rejections
InternalizedRoadrunner

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

@LuxuriantAbjectWalrus: ive heard not at all

oh im a dummy
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?
