Does anyone have any idea about the number of kids that get off Yale’s waitlist? I don’t think they publish those stats on CDS but if anyone knows about the trends in the last few years based on stuff said on CC or Reddit…?

20-50 in an average year. More last year due to so many taking a gap year. Speculation is that it will be less than in an average year this year, but who knows?

Unless the anticipated yield is way off, I would suspect there would be very limited use of the waitlist. No one will know anything until after 5/3.

Also wondering (realistically) how late can a waitlisted applicant be accepted a seat ?

How many are on Yale’s current waitlist? How soon could be the earliest a “WLer” could be notified of acceptance ?
