Yale admissions!!!!


bonafide

The person nriattorney spoke to in the admissions office would have known enough whether or not any offers had been made.

The reasonable explanation for this latest turn of events is that one half of the thread is not telling the truth.

On the one hand, you might say that more people are on the "admissions made" half than nriattorney alone on the "no admissions made" half. But on the other, nriattorney is a longtime member of the board with many posts.

Inconsistencies between the two Yale threads - namely, the first person claiming to have received a financial aid email, but later posts not mentioning this - suggest a hoax.

Also, nriattorney's claim that Yale said to wait for a week would put the decision date in line with previous years'. If calls really were made on 5 March, that is about three weeks early.

It is impossible to know anything except that someone is lying and thereby undermining the value and reliability of this site.

Shame.

I've talked through P.M. with AlexGuate within the scope of the admissions of UChicago. We were both admitted to UChicago and we exchanged views and opinions. He seemed to be an honest person. I really can't see the reason why he would lie to us. Mr. Mxyptzik is also a person to whom I've talked within the scope of Michigan admissions. He is also a reliable person I think.
I would agree that persons with 1 or 2 posts who just joined the thread to say that they were admitted to Yale could actually be liers. But look at the posts that AlexGuate and Mr. Mxyptzik have made since they joined. They are normal persons, who were normally admitted to other Law Schools as well. What's the reason for this kind of persons to suddenly fool us that they have been admitted to Yale?
hjscotland, as well, who said that he called Yale's admissions office, said that the officer said that not all decisions have been made yet. He didn't say that the officer said that no decions have been made. Just not all decisions.
And if you look at the Yale admissions thread of 2006 you'll see that the first person to receive a phone call posted on the 5th March! So this date is usual for Yale to show up with decisions.
I really can't believe that all this is a joke. I've talked to these guys and they are ok.

After carefully looking at the thread again, I have ascertained that we really are in front of a fraud by "members" of the llm-guide.
One of the persons who posted that he was admitted deleted his account and all the messages he posted in the "Yale admissions" thread. If you click on what is left of his nickname (just a "-" is there if you look carefully) and enter his profile you will see that his last post was last year in a thread where he was accused of fooling people pretending to be a HLS student! This guy has done it before. Go to his profile to see.
AlexGuate to whom I've talked to before, strangely changed his name to Alexander007 and also deleted all of his posts in "Yale Admissions" thread.
2 of the 6 persons who claimed to have received a phone call from YLS disappeared and deleted their messages. All the other persons apart from Mr. Mxzyptik, joined llm-guide just to say they were admitted to Yale. So, it could be the same person who joined with 2 usernames to fool us.
Another query I have now. A chinese applicant claimed that he received a phone call by Yale on 6:21 pm EST. When it is 6:21pm at Yale it's 7:21am in China. Do you think that Yale would call an applicant that early in the morning? People haven't gone to their office on 7:21am.
What are your thoughts? Do you think that we're victims of a bunch of people who are just trying to laugh at us?

Thank you L&E-pil for your investigations!
Personally I have not applied to YLS but, nonetheless, I think it is unbelievable and I don't find anything funny in posting false information...

MikifromItaly, you are absolutely right. And we should also try and relax. I have also applied to YLS and though having been accepted at Columbia I am anxiously waiting for YLS's answer. However, let's keep calm and relax. They are going to make their decision and whether they make it a week earlier or later will not alter anything. I think we have all got enough work to do in our respective fields of study and do not need to worry about whether anyone has been playing a joke or not. Just let them be stupid if they feel the need to do so.
Good luck to you all

I would request any of the candidates interested to join YLS make them a phone call and post here the answere he/she receives. With one or two cross checks we can ascertain the true position.

I just called to YLS. They said that we should wait for decisions some day next week. They didn't deny that maybe some people already received a decision.

Hi all,

I really did receive a phone call from Yale on Friday last week telling me i had been admitted. They said they had been trying to get hold of me for two days (I'm from South Africa and i didn't have cellphone signal). From my perspective, it is definitely not a hoax by LLM Guide members and i agree with the earlier post that there is no reason to suspect it is a hoax by other people. The person who phoned me not only had my phone number but all my other details as well. I haven't yet received anything in writing, but they told me they would send documentation in the next two weeks. I don't believe that there is any fraud involved.

Congrats to all those who have been admitted!

I have chosen to delete my posts, change my username and remove myself from this absurd discussion. The level of paranoia is ridiculous.
I understand many are anxious to receive news from YLS but c´mon relax.

I would respectfully request to be left out of this discussion once and for all.

Hi, I've just read the whole story.
I've received a call from Ms. Dino last week (4/march), I'm in, but I am in process of applying for financial aid so I am still a little worried. It is very probable that they've called us before...

I just called the Graduate Programs Office to find out.
They've told me that not all decisions have been made. I asked her "that means that some of them have already been made then?". She said "yes". She told me that we should wait until next week and that still have chances of being admitted.

I again made YLS a phone call a few minutes back. They repeated that decisions shall be made next week. However, they did not deny that some, though not all, candidates might have been informed by phone. Interestingly, they also said that all the candidates shall be informed simultaneously by mail next week.

I think there is no 'hoax' theory here; just some confusion because of the unclear and selective communication emnating from YLS office.

I would again congratulate all the candidates who have received phone calls; and others may just relax and wait for their decision by next week.

I think Alex is right. This thread reminds me of last year's witch hunt "Beware of frauds ("Kay" is not an HLS student)" - http://www.llm-guide.com/board/28785 - where the prosecutor (LLM-Guide veteran "josepidal") became the accused and never showed up in the board again.

I think Alex, and all other YLS admitted who deleted their posts after this discussion are right in doing that. Personally, I believe that this forum is ment for LLM applicants to share their experiences with eachother in an informal way. And although in the past a case of fraud came out, I don´t think it is right to call the graduate admission officer from any law school to " quote the information given on this thread about the calls received by candidates on March 7th". Such informal and personal quotes can damage a forum user who uses a nickname or other information that can identify him/her. That´s my opinion and congratulations to all!

Hi Guys,

I am sorry to disappoint the "conspiracy theory" believers, but it was not a joke. I know everybody is very stressed (I have been there too) but that isn't a good reason to attack people who share news (nor the admission officers!!). You should know that if you worked hard in the past and made a good application, the good news should come soon.

Please, if you don't believe it, keep it to yourselves and stop writing me. To the other YLS admitted, congratulations and let's meet in another forum.

I had the same concern that EL80 has now.

I took the special care of changing my nickname (actually, I signed the service again) before giving the news because I was affraid that someone would call Yale and say something unpleasant. By the way, Kobayashi is the character from "The Usual Susupects" movie.

For those of you not called yet, I think there is two possibilities:

- You were rejected.
- You were put in a waiting list.

What I have heard is that both information will last long to reach you. Even if you were put in a waiting list, the chances that you will receive an offer are quite low - very few people turn down the Yale offer. But to be in the waiting list means that you are a really strong candidate and you should apply again. I know people that, even receiving a plain rejection, got accepted in the next year.

Good lucky, be cool.
