There must be a reason for it. I don't know what, but imagine they have a counter built into the status page that keeps track of the number of times you checked your status!! that's sick :twisted: my optimism is giving its place to evil thoughts. lol.

This would be a bit of information I hope they can't see. That might be slightly embarrassing... :oops:

I picture all of us in that "What's your number?" Prudential commercial holding up signs with a number. Except the number isn't our retirement number, it's the number of times we've checked the SLS status checker. 1,000,000 sounds about right.

Vuvuzela!!! wrote:I had a quick glance at last year''s LSN data. 50 of the acceptances had a reported decision date. 12 of those acceptances have a decision date later than today. So if that is any kind of guide, Stanford leaves a little less than 25% of their acceptances for the second review.

I'm sure some of you will be hearing. Good luck.

Edit: 2009 data was 43 acceptances with a decision date, and 11 of those 43 with a date later than today (they start the 24th). So I think the 25% figure is a good estimate, unless LSN has a strange reporting bias.


There are 34 acceptances on LSN for this year. Do you think that number fits with your stats?[/quote]


I fear that looking at just those who reported decision dates skews the sample to the latter bit of the cycle. My feeling is, earlier in the cycle people are less willing to out themselves with dates. One possible reason why 25% estimate might actually be lower.

Stanford is now officially the very last school I am waiting to hear from, and it is the one I have cared about the most. I really hope the wait was worthwhile.

Pretty silent today on this thread. I'm guessing the next two weeks are going to be really busy, though.

I'm guessing this week will be quiet. Everything will start to blow up next week and the two weeks after that.

Haha.. wait until you start doing ASWs and meet people "considering" Yale.. well adjusted many of them are not. Unless I have seen a tremendously unrepresentative sample, the idea of Yale being "laid-back" does not compute.

I was being funny. They go to UVA.

I met someone yesterday who deferred twice to Yale and still doesn't want to go. Me sad.
