Stanford Transfer 2016

Anyone heard back?

I just got an email to access my status checker. And *surprise* it says incomplete because I'm missing an official transcript? But I swear I remember sending it to them.

Mine also has everything checked but says incomplete. I think it's because of the dean's certifications. They aren't listed on the requirements list, but I think this is the first year they are requiring them prior to admission decisions.

Also have everything checked but 'Your file is incomplete.'

This is not good for my nerves.

Considering there's at least 3 of us with the same issue, I'm not too worried about.

My receipt confirmation was like two weeks ago, just got status checker yesterday. They don't appear to move very swiftly )

Has anyone actually been changed to 'complete" ?

Stanford seems to be really bad at updating their tracker for documents. I'm positive they have my transcript, and yet the tracker says they don't.

We're in the same boat. My transcripts were mailed to their office over a week ago, but the status checker states they're not in, and thus, my app is still incomplete. I emailed admissions about this yesterday morning, but still no response.

Everything of mine is sent in and checked off, but still says complete. Called them two days ago, left a voicemail. Still nothing. STTTanford, back at it again with the subpar admissions office! :lol:

I've left multiple voicemails there, never had one returned. I did eventually get on the phone with someone, though I wasn't able to get any useful information.

FWIW, it sounds like nobody has received a full "app complete." I'm in the same "everything checked but still incomplete" boat.

Don't worry about the status tracker. I applied to transfer to Stanford two years ago. My status tracker said 'incomplete' all summer right up until the day I got into Stanford.

Anybody know if SLS decisions come out within a few days of HLS decisions?

I have everything checked and it says "submitted for review."

As I recall, it's typically a week or two later. I think maybe two weeks later.

Is anybody still at app incomplete? I'm still showing no transcript. Really hoping not getting grades until June 15 did not fuck me over.

Mine is as well. I submitted on 6/15 and overnighted everything to them via FedEx/UPS. Did not get a status link until yesterday, and app shows as incomplete pending receipt of "class rank," which my law school does not provide. Pretty nervous, especially since some are already under review.

Same boat, but I mailed mine in way before the deadline. Like, a month before. Yet the transcript button is still unchecked. I called and left messages and email them, all to no avail....

Not sure how critical the class rank is, tbh. I sent them my 1L transcript along with a report reflecting class rank info, but on the status checker they only checked off the transcript requirement.


Is yours marked as complete or under review even though everything is not checked off? I asked my school to email them today to provide the info and I also emailed them, but based on the comments describing their radio silence I do not expect to hear back.

Yes, several of us are. As one poster said from last year I believe, it was like that till a decision was rendered.
