I like how the Yale rejection letter says: "The faculty, all of whom read admissions files, work hard to reach these difficult decisions as fairly as possible..."  Sounds like they're trying to give the impression that the faculty reads all admission files, but can't honestly say it...  Not buying it, Yale!  :P

every member of the faculty has a role in reading the rejections letters, but not every letter is read by all faculty.  each letter is read by three faculty, i think.

I don't think faculty read the rejection letters. Are they checking for typos?  ;)

haha - oops.  you know what i meant.  for most people, a yale application and a yale rejection are synonymous anyway  :D

Did you go to faculty-review, or whatever they call it, for Berkeley?

Nope, which is why I was expecting the rejection...

Rejected at BC, Fordham, George Mason and WAITLISTED AT UCONN??!?

166 and 3.8 just doesn't cut it for a white kid anymore I guess.
