Does the lack of brownies at Yale imply that there are no sugar mamas at Yale, either? I would be so disappointed if they are not present, there.

Yale does give an extra point (out of 12?) to children of alumni.

Do discuss further.  How does one obtain the other 11 points?

"I chose Yale Law over Harvard Law for the same reason I chose Yale undergraduate over Harvard, because of its smaller size and the greater attention it gives to students" Gluck said.

Show off!  I'm jealous.  ::sigh::

Thanks for the article!  Doesn't tell me what to do to get points.  Think I'm too old to get adopted by a Yale alum?  I'm only 22...

There is no magic way to get points (other than nepotism).  Each person on the admissions committee gives two, three or four points based on their own criteria and (probably) general percentages of each score they are allowed to give.  I remember Yale's website saying that they leave the decision factors completely up to each member.

For Yale's PS, I wrote about the void.  The abyss.  The nothingness.

I did the same for my Yale application.

If they like nothingness, and by extension existentialism, maybe they'll call me up out of the blue and say "ZAP, we've been saving a seat for someone just like you... someone who sees outside the box and draws outside the lines... someone whose application is so minimalist you didn't even apply!"

And then, maybe I'll see some of you there! ;D

This sounds like an excellent plan.  I still like mine though: I will apply so late in the cycle that Yale will run out of rejection letters, so they'll have to accept me!   ;D

Also a good plan.  I think that if the two of us put our minds together, we could write the ultimate book on how to get into Yale... we could be the new Montauk!;)
