- High school students who applied to Yale early are worried that their competition might be taking advantage of Yale’s non-binding admissions option.
Given that Yale is the only member of the Harvard-Yale-Princeton trio that still accepts applicants early, and that Yale’s early program is non-binding, prospective Elis said they are frustrated by the possibility that Yale is not the first choice of fellow applicants. Five of seven early applicants interviewed said Yale was their first choice, and they hope they will not lose a spot to someone who is actually holding out for admission to one of the University’s rivals.

Due to the hiring freeze for this academic year, the school is under strict budgetary constraints and administrators at the School said this meant that the new hires will have to come at the cost of other positions.
- Nine members of the Yale International Relations Association went to Haiti last week to blog about the election and collect footage for a documentary on the nation’s political climate, as it struggles to recover from a massive 7.0 earthquake this January.
