Did you have to accept on the spot or did they give you time to think it over?

I think Dean Deal said August 5th was the deadline to accept. No need to accept on the spot (though I was trying to).

Does anyone else's status checker say "If" in the middle of the screen? I figured it was a bug, but curiosity happens.

That's awesome dude. Congrats! Were you applying anywhere else or just Stanford?

Mine had said that since the beginning.


Weird, it just happened to mine today. Meaningless things.

If you got a call AND it says that... you totally got in. Just sit back and relax, maybe pop a bottle of bubbly!

You're in, they don't call for rejections :) Congratulations. Best of luck to everyone still waiting.

Also applied (successfully) to Harvard, but I'm going to withdraw just as soon as I get something on paper saying that I'm in at Stanford. I'm starting to think I should have applied to Yale too, it would have been sweet to sweep the trinity (though I still would have taken Stanford).

If I worked in admissions, I'd only call for rejections and only informally email acceptances. The responses would be much more mellow, and I wouldn't need to hear oh my god's 10 times a day.

I wish they'd done emails. Then I wouldn't still have that tiny, irrational thread of "maybe they're not done calling yet!" hope.

Well, I got the IF. At the very least I'd love to at least get a keep it real e-mail from Stanford.

"We did not have that many applicants this year, but your application was so pathetic we could not possibly admit you and still be a credible institution. Thank you for your joke of an application."

Now, that would be an institution I would be honored to be rejected by. These other sugarcoated ones, eh. I'm not a fan of the it's not you, it's me.

mine too - there's a big IF between the columns? Probably good you don't have it as if I have it, it might be the ones labeled as Idotic Fools. I was top 50% at Phoenix Law Online but I heard Stanford is getting more competitive this year.

I don't have an "if," have we confirmed that it isn't just a glitch with the bottom "If you have any questions..." message?
