I'm pretty bummed about this whole process. 

I went complete in late January and am still waiting from Yale.  My numbers are on the threshold.  I guess the fact that I wasn't rejected outright is a good sign.  But I read on the HLS blog that they are going to wait and see what kind of acceptances they get on May 1.  Perhaps Yale is going to do the same?  Then, maybe I'll hear sometime in May or June?

Has anyone heard if they are really going to try to be finished this week?

Well, don't take this the wrong way - but congrats on knowing one way or the other.

I applied last year (2004-2005), went complete on 12/17, and didn't hear anything until a rejection email on April 22, which I've pasted below. My girlfriend is applying this year -- she went complete on 12/27 and still hasn't heard anything.

From: Yale Law School Admissions <admissions.law@yale.edu>

Date: Apr 22, 2005 5:58 AM
Subject: Yale Law School - Decision

Dear XXXXXX,

We know that deposit deadlines for many schools are quickly approaching.  In the interest of time, we wanted to provide you with your decision by e-mail.  We regret that we are unable to offer you admission for the fall of 2005.

We received almost 4,000 applications for an entering class of 185 students.  Given this ratio, many highly-qualified applicants have to be turned away.  The faculty, all of whom read admissions files, work hard to reach these difficult decisions as fairly as possible, knowing the outcome will inevitably prove disappointing to many people.

We appreciate your interest in Yale Law School and extend to you our best wishes for the future.

Sincerely,

Craig L. Janecek
Director of Admissions

ugh, an unprompted email yls decision-titled email would give me a heart attack (of joy) and then i would probably die of disappointment after reading the body of the email.  :D
Nevermind. Queen of the Waitlists, anyways.

thanks for the copy of the email.  now i have to check the regular mail and my email!

but at least that shows that they were aware of the deadlines in the last cycle.  perhaps, we'll hear before the end of the month....
