Anyone Still Waiting on Yale?
« on: March 12, 2008, 08:34:01 PM »
anybody else still waiting for a decision from yale? i went complete in early january and haven't heard anything since then. should i just assume it's a ding? :'(    (getting nervous from the sudden flood of dings on lsn)

i know, annoying post, right? can't help it--the cycle just doesn't feel complete without a decision from yale. *sigh*

Comparing LSN to last cycle, this year has a lot more pendings than last year ended up with.  While I'm sure some of that is LSN delay, I bet a lot of it is that there really are people still pending.

Definitely still waiting after 5 months of going complete.

since your lsn shows you were deferred, i'm guessing you got the 'waitlist or acceptance' email? (i didn't)

Checked out LSN today - HUGE string of rejects with only one acceptance. Ouch.

But the fact that they all were posted in the past 24 hours makes me wonder if Yale CALLS to reject you?? That's just cruel, right?

I have heard that they call to accept though. And on weekends usually. Can anyone confirm?

They dont call, they do the thin envelope thing. It's not that hard to imagine that when all the rejections are sent at once they all arrive within a couple of days to the people they are sent to. The US Postal Service is reliable like that :)
(p.s. got my small envelope yesterday)

Great... I guess mine will arrive soon too. I just wish they'd hurry up so I can get on with my life.

I'm waiting to hear back from Yale, too; I applied end of December, went complete end of January, and nothing. 

Hearing about all these rejections on LSN in the past 24 hours is making me worry, though.  Granted, no thin white envelope from Yale in the mail today (and I would assume, as I live rather close to Yale, I would have gotten it today), but still...well, as I always say, it's all in God's hands so I just need to be patient and see what His plan is. 

I do hope it works out for all of us who are waiting though!!!  Good luck!
