Hello everyone, I am new to this site and I would really appreciate if I can receive advice. I have an undergraduate GPA of 3.045 right now this is prior to my spring semester grades being placed in and I project my GPA to raise but I guess not much since I will mostly have A's and B's. I am also graduating in December so I have one more semester. What makes me nervous is that Yale requires prereq's that I don't have yet (Micro, A&P I AND II, and Biochem) but I have the statistics portion. Luckily, Yale doesn't require any labs for the prereq's. Yale's minimum GPA req is a 2.8 however, CASPA hasn't calculated my GPA yet and based on what I've heard a CASPA gpa is way lower than your transcript gpa and I want to be competitive. Not to mention that I am a psychology major which is already not the usual biology/chem. My major (science undergraduate) is a 3.5. My plans were this summer to take these classes at a community college while completing classes towards finishing my degree at my usual university. The reason for this is due to COVID-19 and my school deciding to continue remote learning via ZOOM. My university doesn't have the best science professors from what I heard and what I seen (taking chem which I got an A in). I figured community college whose curriculum is already set up as online would be much easier for me to pick u in and CHEAPER of course. I say all of this to ask if it makes since to put myself through all of this in the summer if I may not get an interview based on the fact that my regular GPA is 3.0 and even if I take all of these classes and receieve a 4.0 I doubt my CASPA gpa will be raised by that much. My PCE (Paid) is 2000.
I wanted to start a topic about the waitlist. I interviewed 11/9 and was waitlisted 11/23. I just want to know a few answers before I say I want to stay on the waitlist. I have a few questions for current students/waitlisted people: 1. How many people are typically put on the waitlist? 2. Has anyone gotten in from the waitlist from the previous classes - about how many? I know David emailed us and said it was unpredictable - I get it. But just wanted to know the previous classes numbers if current students could provide an estimate? At what point did you get in if you were offered admission from waitlist? 3. How many applicants applied to Yale this year? Holdin' in there strong. I was impressed with the caliber of student at my interview session and know that people from everywhere applied. I have a few other offers but love Yale, and think I want to be on the waitlist. However, some of the other schools start in June whereas Yale starts in August. Anyone else have this problem? I know a few other schools start in January! Thank you in advance, good luck to you all!
