I hope not. But I think that our chances are very very slim at this point. An above poster called and was told that very few acceptances were going out at this point (weekly instead of daily). And I'm sure that Stanford would have the vast majority (90%+) of their acceptances out before ASW for obvious reasons. I think our best bet is to make it onto a WL and hope that they slide down the list with cross-admits to Yale or Harvard who foolishly choose those schools over Stanford. I'm hoping for a lot of fools. :|

Wait, I thought the SLS person told CosmoLaw that decisions were being made daily and NOT weekly at this point. Or maybe I have RC fail...

i would be so so so happy if i just could move on with my life and look at the brighter side. I mean it would be AWESOME and a dream come true to get into stanford, but i read a study showing that the happiest people are people that never had a choice to make, and if i don't get into stanford, i won't have a choice to make and i can move on to another law school of my dreams. lol

A 1L earlier in the thread said that he knew of people who were accepted on the day before ASW...It might not be a big round, but it sounds like there is the potential for at least some!

Well my address is about 1 mile from Stanford, so I guess I'll know it's rejection really soon. I'll post if it's WL, but it doesn't matter for me because I have a deadline for grant money at Cal for April 15th. Good luck to all!

Actually I don't either, LOL. Maybe CosmoLaw will see this and clarify? But I think we'll just have to wait and see at this point. :?

YES! My teacher put in the wrong grade for me but I finally got it fixed. Got straight A's again this quarter. Will be sending a transcript in to SLS as soon as possible. Do you think I should write them an email informing them?

that's just it... the response was nebulous. I came as close to a quote as I could.... so I guess we can make what we want of it

oh and it was more the tone more than anything... it wasn't like yeah we've still got tons of seats left... it was more of a "yeah we're winding down, the door is not completely open but not quite shut either"... haha, that sounds a bit moronic perhaps, but that's what I got from it... all in all, I'm exactly where I was before the call in terms of my expectation of number of seats left

DLS at some point late in the afternoon, just now checked. :cry: :cry: :cry: Here's to hoping it's a WL.
UR 1/18. LSAT at 25th, GPA above 75th. I'll probably be across the Bay, so I guess I should start spelling it "Stanfurd" :wink:

Good luck to those still waiting!

Sorry man. We've lost a lot of good people lately :(. I'm just hoping I stay alive long enough for my updated transcript to get to SLS.
