I have scoured last years SLS admits and cannot find how they contact you. Does Dean Kramer call? Do you get an email/snail mail box?



I already have my 'list' of area codes sitting by my desk at work to watch out for :lol: (sad but true)
I am fully resigned to a long review process if necessary and am hoping I don't turn into a raging alcoholic while I wait... ;)

Put admissions out of your consciousness. Schools admit people at strange times, and SLS is notorious for making people wait.

Anyway, Dean Deal will call you, typically (but not always) from an unknown number.

Earlier today, at about 6:30 here (so getting close to closing time at Stanford), I received a phone call from an unknown number. I almost had a panic attack. :P :shock: :twisted:

Yeah, I didn't really expect it...my senses reacted before I could think about it logically. :lol: It was just on my mind because someone mentioned it right before it happened.

I was just wondering about your thoughts on whether or not Stanford may be more inclined to wl/reject because you don't seem to have a connection to ca. Is there any truth to this?

I don't think they care. They are not a state school. Even the UCs supposedly don't care that much. However, I have heard that employers in CA often want to see a connection to CA.

Your median LSAT and at/above median GPA, i'd say you have a shot. Probably depends on what softs/diversity you can bring to the school, as there are no numbers that are sufficient solely by theirselves for acceptance.

Do you think a retake may help?

Not sure, i've heard a lot of conflicting information. I've heard that Stanford doesn't care really past median LSAT, but I couldn't imagine it would hurt your application. I guess no one really knows, but seeing how Stanford is known for putting a lot of value on GPAs relative to other T-14 schools, a retake (and improvement obviously) probably wouldn't strengthen your application package as much at S compared to other schools that value the LSAT more heavily, such as Columbia.

Because their admissions decisions they send out so late I have to think it WILL help
I may have to retake in december and decided to send in my app now anyways.
