Did anyone else receive a really large package describing financial aid at Yale today? I was just wondering if they sent it out to everyone who applied.

The financial aid presenter on the interview day said that they send it out to all Yale interviewees.

i was in such shock because i thought it was an acceptance letter! augh... thats mean (and also wasteful) of them to send that huge thing to all of us.

it said on the initial letter that fin aid apps do not have any effect on admissions, so i'm pretty sure they sent it to everyone who interviewed. boo.

Ah YES!

The "Don't Get Your Hopes Up" Packet. Got one and just seeing a huge packet with the word "Yale" on it made my heart skip a beat. I said to myself "Damn, with how many words can they reject an applicant?"

Just kidding. Keep hope alive.

I got one of these and thought the same thing.

Why would they spend the money on sending this package to everyone three or so weeks before the acceptances go out? No other schools have done this.

I haven't gotten one yet and interviewed at Yale back in Nov.

I also am a resident of Charlottesville, Va right now and the mail system is not the most rapid in the world.

It'll prolly come Mon/Tues for those who haven't gotten one yet. If you are in cali, it might be a longer delay...

Ha, I'm at Yale and haven't received it yet. I also got an acceptance letter from another school (with my correct address) a month and a half after the postmark date.

Is there any reason for the bumps? Everyone's supposed to receive a financial aid package regardless of final decisions, at least according to what they said during the financial aid session on interview day.

Is page 4 of the main pink application supposed to be completely blank?

It was really nice of Yale to outline everything so clearly, but I can't believe the amount of paper and color ink that went into this :p
