Oh, you're probably right. I thought that S was gonna pull a Y and start emailing decisions since it's getting so late...


I'll take it via carrier pigeon if it's an acceptance.

FYI carrier pigeons are not extinct. Passenger pigeons are extinct.

Only if you define "morning" as ending at 10:40 am.

There have been one or two reported calls in the afternoon. But most are in the morning california time.

Just got notice that I was waitlisted. The letter was sent yesterday. Hold on to your hats.

I'm assuming this means at least some DLS's from yesterday are WL.

Every day that goes by with no DLS or phone call makes my hopes both rise and fall a little bit more!

+1. Had a dream a few nights ago that I got a rejection mail, but it was in a hallmark greeting card with a spanish saying about overcoming adversity. This needs to end haha

Do they decide on WL after making all acceptance calls? Does that mean the rest apps are all rejects or WLs?

There were 3 people last year on LSN who got accepted after the WLs started rolling out.

So the answer is "almost"

With a rather poor LSAT score (below 170), I feel extremely lucky and humbled by my admission to Stanford. I wish you guys good luck.


No call first? :shock:


International?

-Missed call followed by email yesterday morning.
-I am an international student but I have been in the US for quite a long time.

Those 3 spots are reserved for r6, Cardinals, and Knock this year (I hope). Maybe dean Deal is secretly lurking this forum and wants to add a little to the excitement. :mrgreen:

If this thread hits 300 pages I'll know it's because you three got in and hilarity/congratulations ensued.

Couldn't agree more. The rational part of me realizes that a waitlist or rejection is very likely BUT there is this other twisted, disgustingly optimistic part of me that keeps thinking-- hey, I've survived some review without being dinged and acceptances are still going out...

Just want to put in another encouraging word for those of you looking at being waitlisted.... SLS does pull from waitlist, and sometimes early!! I got pulled in the last week of May, and I know others who got pulled in June, July, and yes, all the way into early August. You are JUST as likely to succeed here if you get pulled from the waitlist as if you got in straight out; at least two waitlist kids got GREAT grades, and all of us did just as well in finding 1L jobs as anyone else.

I sent a total of four LOCI, so if you're anywhere short of that, I would say it doesn't hurt to send another. Show your love!

SLS is absolutely and unequivocally worth the wait, so don't feel discouraged. Good luck!!!!!

Thanks for the encouragement.

Maybe I am paranoid, but is it possible that they review in alphabetical order? My last name starts with Z. I went under review 11/9.

It's not that bad. It could be a lot better, I admit.
