It's Thursday the 13th, according to the emails. We can almost count the days on one hand!

i already stalked last year's thread for this time during the class of 2014 decisions. Last year calls went out day of decisions (10am-afternoon). in previous years, calls have gone out as early as two days prior to the decision day...but I think (as someone mentioned earlier) delays from Hurricane Sandy will probably mean decision day calls.

Yeah Ive been stalking the crap out of that thread for months. Basically all Ive learned is that if they dont call me before 4 pm, I am going to be afraid to check my email. I scheduled my Cornell interview for decision day to take my mind off of this one. But man would I feel better in my next interview if I had one school in my pocket. Please call me in the AM Yale, I beg you to let me in.

Be careful what you wish for. Last year I interviewed w Cal the day after I got into SOM and I was so spacey and weird bc I was still emotionally reeling. You can see from the left hand side how that turned out. Laser focus! You are all rock stars!

Side note: I know admissions has moved to a day-of only call policy, so I wouldn't expect anything prior. Good luck, breathe deep!

I feel like I am not admitted. I did not nail the interview enough, and my profile is not strong enough, I think.

I was full of confidence and positivity when I applied for the school, but I am kinda getting lose it.

This waiting drives me crazy though.

How effective is the good old reverse jinx anyways? I am asking because every hour or so I keep thinking about things I could have done better - in my essays, in my recos and in my interview. Feeling anxious now, 13th and 14th for Yale and Tuck. Phew!

So on Thursday do we receive an email with the actual decision, or just an email that tells us to check our online application for a decision letter?

shushu, dont fret. I would say my interview went below average, maybe average at best. My profile isnt particularly strong. But nothing I can do about it now. Let's just hope for the best on Thursday. It doesnt matter what we think, all that matters is what Yale thinks.

BTW, thought this weekend would go painfully slow seeing is how I cant wait for Thursday. But it went really quick, like every other weekend. Just shows that life goes on.

One long day ahead and then the longest day ever.. Pretty much if I get a call or not, I am going to freak out.

Tell me about it. Technically, it'll be December 13 in the Philippines in less than nine hours and yet I won't be hearing from Yale until December 14 because of the time difference. @_@

I know a current student already posted that admissions has adopted a day-of calling policy... but maybe the holidays can come early today?

For those who haven't received an interview invite yet, just thought I'd offer some hope. I was trolling through the 2010 message board and it seems that on Round 1 Judgement day when everyone was receiving their acceptance/rejection/waitlist calls and emails, 1 person actually was invited to interview. Obviously I have no idea about this year but atleast theres hope!
