She was probably a 10.

They don't flat out waitlist all 10s, do they?  That'd be an awful lot of waitlists, considering their usual non-use of the waitlist, no?

Why would there be an "awful lot" of 10s?  I doubt they waitlist every 10...just promising ones.  But I've seen nothing to indicate that 10s are very numerous.

3 profs score from 2-4.  12s in, 11s probably in, 10s waitlisted, everyone else rejected.

I guess I just figured there'd be a fair number of people in most of the categories.  I guess it's possible that all the profs think alike most of the time, but considering the variability of the system it seemed likely that there's a fair amount of disagreement.

The Yale Obsession has ended.  Mourning over the reality of letter grades but relieved that the wait is over.  The likelyhood of attending Harvard next year has probably jumped to 90%.

The letter came to my parent's address (permanent address as opposed to school address), and my mom mailed it up in a big bag of other mail.  Just thought I'd mention that to any other college-aged applicants--you may have a rejection letter waiting at home already (sorry for the ominous warning).  Might want to call up and check.

Gee... guess I can't procrastinate on this thread anymore.  Perhaps I can actually... study?

Really? I didn't know that. I got a 12? I swear it was either pure luck that I got the right faculty members for me, or another person with my name sent a large check to the school and they thought it was me.

bmj - I believe you did EVEN BETTER than that.  You bypassed faculty review.  So good, they didn't need to rate you.
