Yale athletic likely letters

If I haven't received my likely letter by now, does that mean Admissions has rejected my application?

    Not all athletes get Likely letters. Did the coach say you should expect one?

    You've not been formally rejected -- no one has.

    I had an OV, recruits in my sport receive LLs, my application is being supported, some fellow recruits have already received lls, I haven't.

    Hard for any of us out here to guess. Good luck though.

    The coach will discuss with you the offer of the LL.

    The coaches bring in more athletes that spaces for LLs.

    From those athletes that come for OVs, the coaches then rank them...and them start offering LLs.

    Contact the coach and ask if you are being supported by a LL.

    (You had a successful pre-read and OV correct?)

    Did you apply SCEA based on being offered a LL?

    Call the coach. Ask the status of your LL.

    I can say that the admissions office will not mail the LL without ALL of the pieces being in the file...all LORs, scores, transcripts etc. When our student was applying (LL) the LORs wwent snail mail, while the rest was transmitted digitally through Common App.
    Coach had to call hs advisor and request a fax of the LORs because it was holding up the LL 2 weeks!!


    FWIW I asked K1 about the current recruits, and K1 said that the team is under the impression that the LLs have been committed to all except 1 or 2

    The coach should be able to tell you as soon as "it's in the mail" if you were approved. And a friend had the same experience fogfog described. There was some kind of communication break down between the HS and Yale. (Lost transcripts and LORs). Faxing records sped things along. But don't do it unless Yale says they're missing something.
