Tickets are free (not counting being built into tuition), ergo not hard to get. The only caveat is the Big Game, which is only free if you have gone to enough other home games (something like 5?).

Most students never went to a single game. But there was a strong contingent (perhaps 20 or so) that made it to almost every game.



And who did YOU root for at the Big Game? :D


He cheered for Cal like a boss. :D We still like him despite it.

I may or may not have been wearing my retro Marshawn Lynch jersey in the middle of the Stanford section.

Hmm, that's weird, according to the decision date graphs waitlists didn't start until around late March I think.

Yup. They really mean it when they say they are holistic. Though from what I've seen on this forum, holistic includes showing an interest in Boalt, and writing a sufficiently long PS.

Plus they are not above rejecting/waitlisting someone who they don't think would actually attend. I think they're actually the 3rd most selective law school in terms of acceptance percentage, even above H.

Sort of like being a "good" guy really means lavishing extra attention on a specific girl :P

Loving how the Stanford thread is all about Berkeley right now. And I gotta admit, it probably does make for a much more interesting class of students when their admission wasn't just based on numbers. If you're gonna be spending three years with those people, don't you want to know that they've got more going on than standardized testing skills?

I fail to see how being able to write 4 pages of grade A bullshit is somehow on a different level than an LSAT score.

That jersey would be pretty worthless but for that run against the Saints in the Wild Card round of this year's playoffs. BEAST MODE

I'm sending an LOCI as a document attached to an email. Should I fromat it like a business letter (flush-left, addressing, spacing, etc.)? That does make the one-page conventional-restriction quite tight, since the actual content would be restricted to less than a half-page... :?

Why is Stanford's median LSAT so low?

I am 170, 3.9X, but I have another, lower LSAT in the low 160's from October. However, I had to fly to a different country to take it, so I noted that on my addendum.

Seriously, any chance at Stanford? Just went complete. Of course I'd go there at sticker if I got in.

You have a chance, but SLS softs and the entire application package is important.
