Firstly, a HUGE and heartfelt congratulations to everyone in this thread who has been accepted, and to (nearly) everyone who applied and didn’t make it this year; you are amazing, worthy and courageous in this extremely selective process. When the baseline of what Yale looks for is exceptional, a rejection is not a condemnation of ability or character and there is an element of chance involved as not every bit of criteria that would guarantee acceptance is known by design.
Except you, newyorker13. After reading your RACIST comments spewing Trump-ian, alt-right, proud boy-esque rhetoric, I am absolutely THRILLED you didn’t make the cut. The only phrase you didn’t mention to complete my bingo card is "snowflake."I would go through and refute you point by point, but you are not worth it. Who are you to pass judgment on a student as unworthy when you DON’T KNOW the criteria by which they are admitted or their story but instead tear them down on the basis of skin color. Since we’re making assumptions, I bet you are white. You proudly mention William Barr as a hero. You are what’s wrong with our society. Take your privilege elsewhere.
