That is the healthy way of looking at things, regardless of one's numbers.

I don't really know if this was sarcastic or not.


Haha, I was serious. I would be thrilled to get in, but I'm not letting myself think too much about it, and downplaying hopeful thoughts. Makes an acceptance that much better and a denial that much easier to deal with.

But it doesn't look good anyways, as 9 of the people with sub 3.9 gpas were URMs. So pretty much, my mid 3.8 means I am fucked.


What about sub-170 LSATS?

Didn't look because it doesn't apply to me.

But it looks like LSN only has 9 reported sub 170s, and 5 of them are URMs.

Edit: So not really enough data points to make any conclusions. I'd assume that if your <170 you better be praying to a better god than I have been praying to.


I don't understand how their LSAT range is so low then. I'm 169/4+ (yes I get it that numbers only get you in the door and that you must be awesome to Stanford), but they can't possibly admit only 172+ people.

Remember that the LSN graphs are a self-selecting sample.

Consider this: What if all the 168-170 admits just couldn't be bothered to obsess over the website? Stanford has a reputation for a blackbox admissions process after all. Don't lose hope.

OH MY GAWD IM NOT GETTING IN T.T

There's a couple explanations/factors for their numbers. First, their small class size. This means that their 25 th percentile is less than a hundred People. Then you have to take into account I'm using lsn. There weren't enough data point to draw any real conclusions.

With a median of 3.88 I have to assume that stanford's lsn is not an accurate predictor of admissions.

I'm so nervous... Stanford is my only real shot at T3 since I heard that it places more emphasis on GPA than LSAT (4.0/169). I went UR 11/12, though, so it could be a while.

Uhhh did anyone else see the people on LSN who got 180's and were waitlisted last year?

I think I might be giving up on my reach of getting into Stanford. The only applicants who got in last year with my stats were URMs.

SLS is like the amazingly beautiful and intelligent girl that is out of your league, but you think you might have a chance because she is so down to earth and friendly. But then you get friendzoned and she starts dating the star quarterback. Only you can't be mad because he just so happens to help you with your math homework, donated his kidney to your sister, and rescued your cat from a burning building.

Wow. The things that happen while I'm at work!

Congrats to all that heard back today! With my .79 gpa I won't be hearing back until April for sure, but I'm rooting for all of TLS and I'll live vicariously through your awesomeness :D

Not long. I submitted 10/15, and I think I was submitted for review 10/22. But that was slightly earlier in the cycle so they may have had less applications to process at the time.

Hey guys, I applied on December 1 and still haven't received any information about the status checker. Stanford is the only school that has yet to provide me with my password. Is this unusual?

I'd wait at least a few more business days. I'd probably shoot them an email early next week if I still hadn't received the status checker.

Right now, all that is going through my head re: this thread and Stanford is that scene from Bruce Almighty where Jim Carrey keeps shouting at Jennifer Anniston, "LOVE ME."

Also, it follows well with the theory that Stanford is a hot girl.

LOVE ME STANFORD. LOVE ME!!!

Started around 2 yesterday.

Although, I think they probably admit all the high number applicants they want, then move on to the median crowd. I have patience :)

I'm jealous... patience is def. not one of my strengths.
