Even with competitive academic credentials, most any applicant has to consider Yale a long shot. But given its campus culture, do you think that Yale would give extra consideration to applicants with the appropriate level of academic credentials who have significant accomplishments in music (esp. voice) and drama?

Why not? It's an extra curricular all it's own. I don't think they'd put in "special" consideration ("special" as in minority, legacy, recruited athlete, ect), but if you've gotten, say, all-state in chorus, or whatever you do, it's impressive nonetheless.

Gadad, the top academic kids who are also active in performing arts at S's school tend to get into Yale. When I browsed through the "college book" none of those kids gave up an iota on the stats. They would have been strong academic candidates even without the performing arts.
