Checking in too. Top 2-3% at CA T1. Let's get this going.

Are we supposed to submit law school transcripts direct to Stanford or through LSAC CAS? They don't seem to specify in the app...

Really? I talked to them last week and they said to send them a scanned copy when I submit my application because CAS hasn't received my official copy yet, but they did indicate that they would be relying on the CAS transcript for the actual evaluation...


When I spoke with them, it was my interpretation that an official, sealed transcript got the job done. (Also, via status checker I saw when my transcript arrived & processed/checked the box)

Can some past transfers weigh in on how much regional preference matters for Stanford? Top ~5% at non-CA T-20. Wondering if it's worth it to toss out an app.

Moronic question incoming: how do you check your status? I submitted my application this evening with my transcript being sent by LSAC CAS (they finally received it), but have no idea how to see how things are going.


After about a week they send status checker credentials.

I went to Wisconsin, had never lived outside the state before coming to SLS and got in. My class is about 50-50 people with some California connections and people like me with none.

Edit: meant to quote the person asking about regional connections.

Thanks for the response. Do you mind my asking your approximate rank?

You have to preview the application under Step 2 in order to be able to click on continue.

This happen to me.

Email Stanford so they know you are trying. Also look for somekind of checkmark or box to click agreeing to. I missed it when I tried to submit

Msg. above me, that was it

Thanks, I previewed from inside the app but not from outside. After I followed your advice, it worked! I'll buy you a beer when you are in boston next.


Haha no worries.

Throwing my hat in the ring. 3.8x GPA at a bottom T14 school (top 10%) some weird softs and strong California ties.

Anyone know if they will review app without the undergrade dean's certification? I'm having trouble getting my undergrad to cooperate.

BTW, anyone transferring out from a school that does not give out class ranks on the transcript? My school tells us unofficially only whether we are top 10% or top 25% but we are not allowed to disclose it to another school.

What did you do in a case like this? Thanks.

doubt you have to worry about it, stanford is probably very familiar with most gpa/rank combos; if memory serves me correct you're trying from cal right? If so, they def should know

im also throwing my hat in, top 10% (probably 8 or 9, def not within top 5) at mvp; gl all

while this may end up biting me in the ass...I'd say you should still apply. Cal is next door and you never know what could happen. Though chances seem small, if you get in after being 25% at cal then it's a no-brainer to transfer
