Hey y'all! I recently got into YLS (!!!). Quick question: I realize that the first semester is credit / no credit, and all subsequent semesters are H / P / LP / F. But does Yale still rank students within the class? Any idea what proportion of students get each grade?

Very good. Thanks for the info. Now on a more important note: do they still send a snuggie as the admit gift?

actually got my snuggie like an hour after I commented that LOL, gave it to my mom because I think she's more excited about me getting into Yale than I am. I'm basically set here if I get a good amount of grant aid (30k+) and I don't get the Rubenstein, which feels kind of crazy to think about. Might see some of y'all in a few months!
