Did Yale overadmit last year?

<p>Hey, I heard from someone who goes to Yale that the school apparently overadmitted last year by a hundred or so people, and this might mean that a hundred or so less people will be accepted this year. Is this true? If it is true, I'm assuming that's just more bad news for the Class of 2005, the biggest, most competitive class to date, now with a FURTHER increase of rejection probability! Hooray for me........just another reason to think of my chances at Yale to be dismal at best. :D</p>

<p>Well, here is an interesting article on that. I don't know what the repercussions will be though.</p>

<p>yea...that was an april fools story</p>

<p>hahaha nice call goldoro. Um......so is the rumor I heard of last year's oeveradmissiong purely a result of the April Fools article? Or is it also like an actual situation?</p>

<p>Class of 2007 experienced higher-than-expected yield...wound up with 50 or so more than desired...led to overcrowding.
Class of 2008 came in at 1308 if I recall correctly, about on target.
That's because they anticipated a higher yield and accepted fewer students. Overall, class of 2008 admit rate was under 10%.</p>
