You seriously need to calm the fuck down. Every school is different. You will get your decision when it comes. There is no point to trying to figure out what's going to happen.

I didn't mean to come off as rude. The poster has posted a great deal in 3 or 4 different threads here that all basically ask the same questions, and generally comes off as very anxious about everything. He/she needs to calm down and just wait for the decisions to come.

It's all good. These forums need more people like you. That said, I wish Geneva all the best in her cycle and I completely understand her anxiety.

Haha. I'm actually just curious as to what my chances are. I was shocked to be admitted to Berkeley and am thrilled by the possibility of even having a shot at SHY. I think it's perfectly reasonable to speculate while waiting and to see if I can potentially up my chances by sending in a LOCI, etc. Expressing curiosity in how the admissions process works and trying to maximize one's chances =/= "very anxious about everything". But uh, I appreciate your concern?

This will probably only increase your anxiety, but an acceptance at Berkeley indicates very little about your chances anywhere else.

My Stanford-related stress and anxiety is reaching Le Roy mass hysteria proportions.

Hey everybody. Quick question - did those who emailed LOCIs get a reply from the Admissions Office?

I have seen many people say that they did get a response relatively quickly. I myself sent in an updated resume and I received a confirmation email within three hours. Depends what time of day you sent it though. My experience with this matter though is that they usually get back within the day or the next day unless it's a weekend.

Hah, I was waiting for this. I thought that you and 1212 might be feeling pretty good right about now. Esp because you still haven't heard from H yet right??

Also, is it bad that I am playing Call Me Maybe on repeat and wishing Dean Deal would do the calling? Goodness gracious, what I wouldn't do for some love from the 650!

Haha, I’m not going to lie, I called my mom and said “fuck you, Harvard” like, twice. The rankings change obviously doesn’t mean much but I’m glad that one of my prospective schools is in the number two spot!

It has now been a week since there was even the slightest bit of movement on LSN...

Does Stanford usually do their decisions in any semblance of chronological order? I had my application in in early January, but my undergrad took FOREVER to send in the Statement of the Undergraduate Dean, so I only went complete February 17th. I know that fact probably makes me a real long shot for Stanford so I probably shouldn't even bother thinking about it, but I am wondering if going complete February 17th will mean I'm going to have to wait until like April to find out. Does anyone have any idea?

I wish I was accepted while Stanford's confidence was low from being overshadowed by Harvard. NOW I'VE GOT NO CHANCE
