I'm not quite sure I want to know that.


It's one's SDQ (SLS dedication quotient)


On a scale of 0-100, I am 109.7%.


I prefer to think of it in standard deviations. We are like 10 standard deviations above the mean for SLS dedication.

So you are saying, you are 1.097 out of 100?


No. Scale is 0-100%. 109.7%.

I hate math.

This has probably been discussed on this board before but I don't know where to look, so...
I've been UR since 11/17 and the date on my status checker hasn't changed. Should I maybe send a LOCI?

I sent one recently (UR 11/29) just in case. I don't think there's anything wrong with doing all that you can. Since they seem to send out DLS chronologically, I'd do it as fast as possible. I just sent a LOR to LSAC and it'll be a few days before it shows up on SLS. Here's to hoping I don't see the dreaded DLS before then. :|

So, please help me out. Here are my dates:

App sent: 12/6
App received email: 12/7
Status checker email: 12/16
App complete & submitted for review: 1/14 (this only happened b/c I called to check on the status of my dean's certificate, which they had on hand)

So, my question is--when should I expect a DLS/phone call? When y'alls are talking about chronological order, what date are you working from (I'm guessing the submitted for review date)?

Thanks, TLS. I lovehate you.

We really don't know. You could receive a phone call at any time. However, if you are going to go DLS, it is speculated you will hear once they get to the January admits. To give you some perspective, they have not even reached December yet.

Well going by my predictions. You could hear bad news this week, good news next week, or no news until April. But again, that is just my guess.

Stanford is open about the fact that they take a long time with their decisions. Just to be clear, though, I am pretty sure people from Dec. and Jan. have had acceptances. Just not DLS yet.

Thanks for the info. Also, does the DLS show up in the mailings box, or should I be looking somewhere else when I open the status checker?

From what I have heard, it shows up at the top of the status checker written in that red font. Your decisions date goes blank. The DLS is not in the mailings box.

My best guess is that the DLS status will be updated by the end of the week for all of those applicants who went "submitted for review" in November (myself included- 11/30). But then again, who really knows, right? The law school process just cannot be understood no matter how hard one tries!

This just sounds so very ominous and bleak. Submitted for review 1/5 here so I'm still feeling safe.

Seems that way, based on past posts. Sorry :(

Would you mind sharing the last date on your status checker (the "submitted for review" date)?

Not necessarily. I doubt they can get through the December and January applicants in one week.

Wouldn't they just go ahead and finish up the pool now that the deadline has passed? I am guessing they get through Feb by March.

The DLS haven't been going out that long and they've already covered, sept, oct, and this week perhaps nov? Dec and Jan is all that is left, considering that the due date was Feb. 1st. So, I'm obviously just speculating, I presumed that they should need another week (perhaps 2) to complete the 1st round of DLS for ALL applicants. Then continue with the second round of scrutiny for those left standing.
