Thank you both!! definitely helped put my mind at ease. I think I'm just starting to freak out more about every little thing the further into the cycle we get


You're welcome. Probably best to focus any freak-out energy on things you can still control IYKWIM. That being said, I literally just googled "Can adcomms see how often you go on status checker". :lol:

Ha, I wish I had all the weight off my shoulders! For me, getting the JS2 is getting my hopes up about Yale, even though I know it's still such a crapshoot! Will try to just not think about it.

So for my Yale 250, I submitted part of a paper I had written. It is pretty scientific and dry.. not something I composed for Yale specifically. Is that okay? Or have I already totally ruined my chances at admissions?


I wanted to echo what Axe said here. The key is to find something that is well written and means something to you. I've met lots of people here who submitted portions of previous papers. Some people go a completely different route and write something new that's very personal. In the end its all about painting a more complete picture of who you are as an applicant. The possibilities are literally endless for how you can do with this, but I wouldn't overthink it. Just be you and write what you're passionate about. If that means quoting an awesome portion from a paper that demonstrates your ability as a writer, then that is just fine! If it means talking about a movie you're passionate about, or talking about something completely random then that works just as well.
In any case, good luck all. I hope you all hear good news soon.

I wonder if Asha has even started calling yet. Silence here and on LSN. I can imagine her tweeting that then going out to lunch or to see a movie :lol:

Ohmygod... I didn't even consider that! :evil: But would it actually be that unusual if the first batch didn't include anyone on TLS or LSN?

One of my friends who is overseas got the call from Asha, so the calls are definitely happening.

I'll pray for your liver, then, since you clearly don't need the prayers for your cycle anymore ;)

Anyone know how many people are typically accepted in each wave? Curious how many offers will go out this week
