You are going to be soo disappointed if you don't get in lol


Yes, I will be. I have a strong tendency when I want something to pursue it relentlessly until I get it.

Not that I expected a decision until April, but this makes me sad.

Looks about right. I've been hanging out on/around the Stanford campus a lot this week (tutoring near there), and I have a jacket, but I don't really need one.

The whole area really is exceptionally nice, weather and otherwise.

This dropped all the way to the 3rd page so I have to bump it up.

When do you think they will resume making calls again? Is a week after they re-open a good guess? or do you think Dean Deal (since she said she has been reading applications over the break) will be ready to make a few phone calls as soon as they open back up?

1/3.

I am trying to enjoy my acceptances rather than worrying about a call that may never come.

Did this for Yale, so I figure it might be interesting for Stanford, too. Just data mining from last year. Correlating blog comments with LSN admits (with the occasional comment about rejections) and (if I feel super-ambitious) maybe even some TLS comments from last year should yield some information about the basic Stanford admissions calendar. This omits, by the way, anybody who was missing an admit date or didn't have either a submit or a complete date.

Date accepted: complete date or submit date if asterisked, LSAT, GPA

12/11 (Fri): 10/09, 179, 3.83 and 10/21, 170, 3.91, and 10/2, 179, 3.9, and 10/22, 178, 3.96, and 10/2, 169, 3.92, and 10/15, 175, 4, and 10/6, 175, 3.95, and 10/21, 175, 4.03
12/12 (Sat): 10/22, 176, 3.95
12/15 (Tues): 12/1, 173, 4, and 10/29, 179, 3.94, and 11/6, 161, 3.91; blog post not directly related to any of this
12/17 (Thurs): 11/11, 170, 3.89, and 11/18, 171, 4
12/18 (Fri): 11/23*, 175, 3.88; blog post indicating that Stanford is shutting down for the break

1/8 (Fri): blog post indicating that they're back
1/14 (Thurs): 10/29, 171, 3.81
1/15 (Fri): 11/24*, 170, 4.02
1/19 (Tues): 11/6, 171, 3.91, and 11/23, 175, 4.04, and 11/1*, 175, 3.8
1/22 (Fri): 1/19, 168, 4, and 11/10*, 175, 3.62, and 12/14, 178, 3.96, and 1/13, 173, 3.94, and 12/12*, 177, 4.12, and 1/15, 178, 4
1/27-1/29 (Wed-Fri): A whole lot of rejections, the first of the cycle for Stanford.
1/29 (Fri): 1/19, 170, 3.97, and 1/22, 172, 3.92; blog post that indicates that the deadline is approaching, but the class is not yet full

2/1 (Mon): 11/4*, 172, 3.95
2/2 (Tues): 10/26, 173, 3.88
A million rejections in early Feb. From here on, really.
2/11 (Thurs): 10/26*, 166, 3.76
2/24 (Wed): 2/11, 173, 3.84
2/25 (Thurs): 2/12, 167, 3.73, and 10/15, 172, 3.82
2/26 (Fri): blog post indicating that Dean Deal goes out of town in mid-February each year

3/5 (Fri): 11/15, 175, 3.91, and 10/28*, 177, 4.05
3/6 (Sat): 1/6, 174, 3.98
3/29 (Mon): First reported waitlist! This one was 11/19, 171, 3.91.

4/2 (Fri): 11/19, 171, 3.64, and 1/6, 173, 3.85
4/7 (Wed): 1/7, 175, 3.8, and 10/29, 177, 4.1, and 11/3, 174, 3.81, and 12/29*, 178, 3.91
4/8 (Thurs): 12/1, 171, 3.98
4/9 (Fri): 11/25, 168, 4.15, and 10/22, 164, 3.89, and 12/2, 171, 3.85
Decisions keep flowing in through mid-April (mostly slow down at 4/16), but no one else reports an acceptance after this point.
4/11 (Sun): blog post indicating that decisions will be finalized this week

Only 39 people report being accepted to Stanford with enough information to make this list (a decision date and a complete or submit date), which is a pretty small fraction of what they admit, and, as noted over in the Yale topic, these people are applying disproportionately early (probably). Still...

By far the biggest day was the first one (8 admits on 12/11, which is crazy!). Other big dates with 3 or more admits are: 12/15 (3), 1/19 (3), 1/22 (6), 4/7 (4), and 4/9 (3). This indicates that January is likely to be a pretty big month overall for the TLS crowd (and April), but there's no one day that really jumps out (well, maybe the Friday after MLK Jr. Day, which would be 1/21 this year). Also, they definitely do start admitting more people more or less as soon as they come back, although January appears to build up (more decisions in late January than in early January), at least as far as the LSN crowd goes.

I don't know what's up with the total lack of March admits. That seems like data bias more than anything else, but I have no idea why.

Check out that 10/22 complete date who was finally accepted on 4/9. That's not a waitlist or anything. That's a straight-up admit after nearly six months. They apparently do that all through April, because that's not the only October complete date who was admitted in April. Complete date and decision date appear to be only mildly correlated at best; further, while those April admits for October/November completes are mostly people with a (relatively) lower LSAT score or GPA, they're not all. Check out the 4/7 admit with 10/29 complete and 177/4.1 numbers.

If you're just waiting for a rejection, you'll certainly have to wait at least until the end of January, and maybe until the beginning of February or later. A waitlist apparently won't happen until late March. (This seems crazy late, but maybe these are ones that they're hanging onto with the hope of giving a spot that they end up not having. They do appear to do that.)

More thoughts as they occur to me.

I'm glad this thread has been bumped up. I wanted to, but I realized I have nothing new to contribute. I just want a call, haha.

Edit: Haha, nevermind. Tomwatts did much better than I did. Thanks!

Oh, one other thing: some people get in obscenely quickly. Check out that 1/22 admit who was complete on 1/19. That's nuts. What is this, Duke?
