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


Yeah I've found it quite informative.

What I figured: Y > S > H > C > C

You have every opportunity from S as you do from H, but you have the advantages of a smaller class size, greater public interest opportunities (if that's what you want to do), or less competition for firm jobs (smaller class size + more students going to public interest), and a friendlier environment.

But maybe I'm saying this because I don't have a chance at Harvard while, as a median-median student, I could at least theoretically get Stanford. Fingers crossed. No DLS yet!

Yale's the big dog, though.

Hey so for some reason I can't for the life of me figure out, the email from Stanford with the status checker link in it has vanished from my inbox, and I can't find a link to the checker online. Could someone post the link?

Thanks!

Would make for a humorous ASW...

But I actually don't see how that could work on an online message board? :wink:

Write a LOCI to Dean Deal mentioning this. It will totally get you in.

I still haven't heard from Stanford and have a $60k scholarship to another top 5. Should I wait until I hear from the admissions committee before writing a LOCI or go ahead and send them one before hearing back?

I would send one now - that's what many people (including myself) have been doing here.

I want to ask this question again as well:

For those of us who haven't heard back, is there any financial aid stuff we have to do for Stanford? I don't want to miss any deadlines...

I think FAFSA and NeedAccess are supposed to be submitted by March 15.

Edited: Or maybe it was March 1st now that I think about it some more. Either way, I'd do it soon if you haven't yet.

Any admitted/current students know when aid packages are usually sent out?

Uh oh. We need to submit finaid materials even before we've heard their admit decision? Didn't know that.

If you applied to several schools and have been admitted to them already, this shouldn't be a big deal. Just have FAFSA and NeedAccess forwarded on to Stanford as well.

But yeah, do all the generic financial aid stuff for all your schools. The only thing I held off on are tax returns and specific school forms, for the obvious reason.

Thanks so much the head's up, TLS friends! I also wouldn't have known about Yale's Dean Cert if it weren't for the TLS crew.

For those curious about the deadline at SLS, March 16th is what I found here: http://www.law.stanford.edu/program/tui ... ancial_aid

I remember a few days ago (maybe weeks?) a day that calls started at about 2pm PST. Maybe Dean Deal will make a few today after lunch (crosses fingers).
