Haha, unless I get a WL. Then the fun is only just beginning. :D


Very true. But I think if you get a WL you got to start planning as if you aren't going and just hope for a lucky surprise.

It appears that she is not in a good mood today. If you interned for Senator Boxer, you're in trouble! If you have a targeted letter from Senator Boxer, you're in more trouble!

Something makes me think that they are busy dealing with the PR issues more than apps at this time. :roll:

I think they've decided to waitlist us, but have been waiting to release the waitlist batch until they usually do in April.

There is a chance that I would have finished my masters by the time I hear. And I applied before I started.

:lol:

It that was the case, wouldn't the DLSs come out a little more furiously last week or so?

Unless they want to hold us until after ASW to see how many show/deposit/withdraw.

Haha yea I think the same thing. At this point I probably have too much in motion to make the change to Stanford worth it so ultimately the waitlist could just save me the stress of seriously thinking it out.

Yeah, I feel a strong sense that i am going to be WL'ed. I have a little more flexibility because I am not tied down by family, significant other, other job-specific ties, etc.

I don't feel like ASW would give them that much of an idea about class commitment, would it?

This doesn't make sense. Why do they have to adhere to "protocol" just for the sake of doing so when potentially hundreds of people are tearing their hair out waiting to hear back?? Cruel. :(

Judging from other ASWs, a lot of people deposit and withdraw right after.

WL will kill Berkeley for me...

Probably a time sink to send one letter at a time. They can finish evaluations more quickly for all by not doing a piecemeal delivery of decisions.

Or maybe they are just behind because they are having a good time reading TLS and laughing at us. :)

This has to be credited. What other excuse is there to hold on to an app for 6 months? Especially when it is two months after you stopped accepting applications. I've literally seen nine-figure business deals develop faster than this.

Muni bond deals are usually structured/done in one day :lol:

But then maybe because SLS is not just plugging numbers in a formula :wink:

Whatever the reason, I echo what so many others have said already that I'm just ready to move on with my life. This whole application process has been so much more mentally exhausting than I thought. Wish I could have been one of those people who just never gave it a second thought after entering Submit, but then again I probably wouldn't have come across the collective knowledge that is TLS either. For the most part, we just got to remember that it's mostly over in the next 2 weeks.

Now, you and I both know there is a very quick way to reach a decision – look only at the numbers and skim everything else – but that is so antithetical to our philosophy here at SLS and that idea will never take hold. It is not a numbers game to us.


Sorry, couldn't resist.

+1 million! My dad keeps calling/emailing me once a day to ask if I've heard from Stanford or Yale yet. And the answer is always the same...sigh.

Although dinged at Stanford, I appreciate that they took their time to reach a decision (I hope). It was 4 months in the making.
