Anyone been rejected from Yale?

    My secondary has been complete at Yale since 8/10/01, and I haven't heard anything from them yet. I've gotten interviews at UCSF and Hopkins, among others, so I'm a little surprised I haven't heard from them, even if it is a rejection. Has anyone out there been rejected from Yale? Any suggestions on if I should call them to check my status?

    still waiting on Hopkins... hopefully I'll hear this week. I might actually choose Yale over Hopkins (if I even get an interview) because Yale sounds so kick-back.

    Hi postbacchus, congrats on Hopkins and UCSF!!!

    I don't think that Yale makes its decisions (or at least notifies applicants of them) until March. So you still have time! :)

    Best of luck to you!

    i've been complete since 11/1 and haven't heard anything either and i have interviewed at similar schools. i haven't heard anyone get an interview there yet whose file has been complete after the last week of october so i really wouldn't worry about it; they're not up to us yet.

    good luck!

    Thanks so much for the encouraging words. It's been a GREAT (though difficult) year for me and applications. UCSF, Hopkins, Case Western (accepted there), and others.

    So about Yale - do they reject ANYONE before their 3/31/01 decision date? My main worry is that it's been nearly 4 months now and I haven't heard anything except that they have my complete application.

    moo - yeah I noticed that about Columbia too. What's the deal with that? I mean come on, if you're gonna have people spend money and time to fly out for interviews at least screen a little more heavily first...But Columbia is a great school so i guess they can get away with it.

    i've been complete at yale since 9/17 and also no word. i've also gotten interviews at quite a few good schools and went to yale undergrad, so i had thought i might get an interview. oh well :(

    i don't think it's a great sign that nothing has happened yet, pb, but they could reject us if they wanted. i imagine they will wait for their amcas deadline to pass, then probably give out a few more interviews to those they passed over the first round at the end of their time.
