I just got the same waitlist email, too. I don't know what I was expecting to feel, but I am relieved because at least now I know I'll be going to Harvard and the long process of indecision can come to an end. Good luck to all the rest of you, it's been... fun. bye!
probably going to harvard unless yale lets me know by may 1. definitely deferring a year to go abroad.

Well, I guess the news is coming out. They still have about an hour and a half, though, to make phone calls ...!

Rats!  You guys beat me to it.  I was just about to post the same email...

Oh well.  I'm kind of relieved not to have to be making that decision (three years in New Haven would likely mean breaking up with a long-term partner; not something I'm all that psyched about doing).  Definitely not going to stay on the waitlist, at least not more than a week or so.

I meant to say that I hope I don't hear this weekend.  I, too, got the waitlist email.  Do you think the "increase in our yield" thing is on the level?

To those of you who will be getting phone calls, I say: congratulations!  Those of you who will be joining me in California where the wind of freedom blows: see you in August!
It's palm trees and sunshine for me!

Anyone in purgatory with no email yet?

Has anybody actually gotten the promised follow up by postal mail?

Me. Got it yesterday, I think. It's essentially the email, only hand-signed.
