Is it sad that I check now on the weekends even when I checked after close of business on Friday? I mean its not like anything will change during the weekend, but I still panic every time someone mentions a DLS.


Sad? Not really. Understandable? Absolutely. Sign of developing neurosis? Probably.

Hang in there man.

Officially picked up my rejection letter from the mailbox. It came with the boyfriend's GULC and Duke acceptance packets to further rub it in lol :roll:

DLS'ed. That's odd, I checked yesterday when everyone else was updating and it hadn't yet. Oh well, first rejection had to come eventually.

Haha it's alright. I legitimately didn't have the softs for a class size as small as Stanford's. I just hope that Harvard doesn't turn my hold into a rejection before April or I'll feel silly having planned a trip to Boston to visit :) .

GL to everyone, Knock and Card especially.

I'm going to be out of the country for a couple weeks pretty soon and my phone isn't going to work. If SLS decides to bless me with admission, will Dean Deal leave a message?

I'm not sure about a message, but it seems like if you miss the call you'll get an email.

123kl, would you ever choose S over H anyway?

I missed the actual call, and yes she left a voicemail and sent an email minutes thereafter.

S definitely has its advantages over H. If I got in, I'd definitely have to go visit to decide for sure.

Among those who got into both H and S in the last three years, 30 chose S and 30 chose H (I know, I couldn't believe that it worked out so perfectly either). And of course, there were a few H+S admits who went elsewhere, but I didn't tally them.

Also, among those who got into Y+S+H (very small numbers) in the last three years, 11 turned down Y to chose S, while 6 turned down Y to chose H. I looked back even further in LSN history, and the trend seemed to be that H and S used to steal roughly equal numbers, with S gaining the upper hand in the most recent cycles.

I realize these are very small numbers that may not be representative. But I think they show that, when facing off head-to-head, Stanford and Harvard are pretty much equally appealing to cross-admits. And, additionally, it seems that Stanford is at least as good, and probably a little better, at stealing cross-admits away from Yale.

I never thought I'd seriously consider S over H...until I visited H and it wasn't quite what I was hoping it would be. Now I'm really hoping for a call from Dean Deal (...along with everyone else).

Because finals loom, a story, a recommendation, and a wish:

Faculty & admissions staff have suggested to me that Stanford gets one in three Y/S cross-admits (most of whom also get H...) and is more or less in a dead heat with H.

If you have specific ambitions, there are very compelling reasons to choose of the three schools over another; if you don't, you should choose on quality of life, as none of the three will constrain general options in any quantifiable way. All are fantastic institutions (if for slightly different reasons) and you're unbelievably lucky (and hardworking, and talented . . .) to have been admitted.

Best of luck, and hope to see you all at admit weekend!

I really didnt mean to start a y/h/s debate, I was more curious about 123kl in particular based on conversations we had previously had. Sorry for the confusion

I don't think anyone took it that way. It's TLS - debating schools is what we do.
