    I'm just wondering if it suggests serious consideration or if I'm reading too much into it. Hard not to, I guess.

    Does anybody know if Yale has a GPA cutoff? I know it says on the website that there is no GPA cutoff, but I've been getting rejected from quite a few schools that have higher acceptance rates than Yale, and I'm pretty sure it's because of my GPA. I have a 3.68 GPA and am in the top 15% of my class. Thanks!

    @I_Love_Stanford No, it doesn't. They evaluate holistically, which means that your GPA, test scores, etc, are evaluated along with your essay and rec letters. You will likely never know why you were rejected from those schools, because almost all schools do holistic evaluations, so it could be anything, really.

    @luck2017
    luck2017 you are not authorized to access this page is what http code 403 means. Are you already admitted by SCEA or likely letter ? This is a correct response.
  • luck2017luck2017 Registered User Posts: 18 New Member
    No, I am RD (not SCEA) and didn't receive likely letter either. My declared major is Linguistics in my Yale Regular Decision application. However, I received Alumni interview notification e-mail in middle January (after 2 weeks submitted application). I am in Dallas, Texas.

    Just wanted to add my name to the list of RD non-likely letter applicants who were unable to log in to the portal. Can anyone else give it a try?
  • chipotleforlifechipotleforlife Registered User Posts: 29 New Member
    @Princessem If u haven't already, can u try to login to the portal? If Yale called u about the scholarship then it's likely you'll be admitted. Therefore, if it doesn't let u in with this link, then the rest of us are probably ok.

    Thanks, that's very reassuring to here!
  • PrincessemPrincessem Registered User Posts: 12 New Member
    I can't login, either. No worries. It definitely doesn't mean anything that we can't access it.

    @luck2017 Pomona College had the same issue a few days ago. Don't worry it's just a technology issue. Good luck!

    What exactly is that link for? I am a RD applicant and was unable to log into that link, but was able to log into the link off of the admission's website.
