Haha, i'm afraid to check it again.


I think, for the good of our health of course :wink: , Dean Deal should just admit us.


Agreed. Surely they could find a use for our enthusiasm and SLS love!

You know there is consolation in the fact that people with higher stats have not heard back yet. So there's still hope. I'm reminding myself of this every day.

So Stanford's application pattern in terms of dates is all over the place, right? But has anyone who went under review in December heard back yet?

This is what I'm uneasy about too. Seems like they're going chronologically with dings but not so much with acceptances?

On LSN, an applicant that went complete on Oct. 18 was rejected yesterday. It's creeping up on us.

Everyone who isn't a ding or admit is on a de facto hold until later time.

None reported here (that I know of) but then again, there is a vast pool of applicants that we're not in touch with . So who knows.

Anyone know whether SLS has a Stanford obsession? Just wondering if they view Stanford undergrads or other Stanford affiliates in a more positive light than other institutions might.

Alright people. It looks like im out of the game now. Applied Early October and overnight the status checker changed to Decision. =......( It seems that SLS really does reject people in the order of apps received. Good luck to you all. Hope you get that phone call.

:( sorry. Im still holding steady at 10/18 for the moment... Really ready to have all this done with. Stress of uncertainty is starting to get to me. Still another month or so before all the major financial aid offers/finalist notifications are out.

There are a ton of former Stanford UGs here, but there are a lot of Yalies too. I dunno if that means the admissions office views them in any particularly favorable light or if it's simply a product of application numbers.

I heard that Stanford graduate schools in general, (Law, Business, Medicine, Education, etc) generally favor non-Stanford UGs rather than Stanford UGs because they want Stanford UGs to get a new experience... but that may be outdated due to the poor job market, increased applicants, etc. Just something I heard about 3 years ago...
