jumping on here to track the movement. About to put down some money for housing elsewhere but I'm still hoping for a call from SLS before I get too far in.

Congrats! Super jealous, but good job! Do you mind sharing your numbers? If you don't want to post them publicly would you mind sending me a PM? I just want to compare.

Again, congrats!

3.98/176. I also recently sent both a LOCI and an additional LOR. I'm pretty sure the LOR was what made the difference

LOCI sent with the "please keep me on your waitlist" form, which I sent in around April 18. LOR sent sometime around May 14, although I don't know the exact date since my recommender sent it.

Was the LOR from a Stanford alum?

Sent in a LOCI yesterday, just a simple note in the body of an email telling them that I still want to go there.

I finally settled on a school. Withdrawing from Stanford to go to Harvard. That means that there is definitely still hope for you waitlistees. I wish you guys the very best!!!

Kretzy, I'm glad I got to meet you at least once. :)

Best of luck, smov_operator--hope you have a good three years. While I'm neither SLS nor HLS bound (Sadly! I wish I were!), I personally know 3 people currently deposited at HLS and who are dying to get into Stanford Law off the waitlist. (I'm a senior in college, and two of them are classmates, the other was a year ahead of me and has been out a year.) They realize they're long-shots at this point for SLS, but they are all still very much holding out hope. None (at least to my knowledge) posts here, so here's a very small bit of encouraging news I can pass on to each of them!

Nope, from a professor that just came to my college this year. He couldn't send a letter in the fall since we'd just started working together, but he taught 5 of my classes this year and advised my thesis. He was really able to speak to my drive, abilities, and personality significantly better than any of my previous recommenders. I'm pretty sure that made the difference.

Anyone want to indulge in baseless speculation? Do you think that early movement of the waitlist means that there are a lot of wait lists spots and they want to start filling them early? Or...do you think it means that they have just heard early from everyone and have very few spots to fill?

The way this cycle has been, it may be the latter... However, I'll just hope for the best.

to our knowledge, they have only filled one spot. This person sent in what sounds like a very good LOR. I think based on this LOR, they decided to snatch up the person early as they knew they had at least one spot to fill. Who knows what is to come for the rest of us waitlisters though....

I was just at sls today; I heard that dean deal is out of the office this week, so I wouldn't expect any action this week.

Amidst the incessant stream of rumors and speculation, THAT is some pretty useful information.

I hope she is reviewing my application while in Hawaii. It would put her in a good mood.
