Not sending in any targeted LORs, and my PS wont have anything Stanford-specific in it. Waiting to submit until I get my October LSAT score...

To those of you who submitted/will submit a targeted LOR, who did you get it from? Professor who went to Stanford, went to Stanford Law, employer who went there, etc?

So what can non-Stanford alumni say in their letter to target it to Stanford?

I assumed non-Stanford alumni/professors/etc recommenders can still talk about how you'd be a good fit at Stanford. I'm pretty sure that's the route mine took, anyways.

Thanks, are you an applicant this cycle, or an SLS 1L?

I'm applying this year, so it's possible what I did for my application isn't the best route...

On a side note, I sent my Dean's Certification form to my school much earlier than when I applied. I got the status checker today (finally!) and it's showing that I'm missing the form. Did anyone else send their form in early? Does it take a while regardless to have the form matched to your file?

I also sent mine way in advance of the rest of my file (like a month), but I just got my status checker and it says it's complete. So you should probably follow up with stanford/your dean. that's so frustrating though!

I sent mine in mid-summer. It was on complete when I got the status checker over a month ago. No delay.

Got the status checker and it says my file has been submitted for review with a status date of 10/17. Surprising because I only applied on the 13th.

Eeek. That extra form.

And so hard to get waiver.

:(

Still want to go though.

My school says they mailed it on the 4th ><
Whenever I go in to the Dean's Suite, the lady who handles these types of forms is either 1. at lunch, 2. in a meeting, 3. "She's supposed to be here soon" (I waited 40 minutes, and finally left my number and a message. No call back.) Gah!

I'm assuming that you are talking about the fee waiver for applying? A couple people have mentioned frustration about having to pay over $100 to apply to HYS (or others for which you don't have a waiver). I'm sure you realize how expensive law school is, but
http://www.law.stanford.edu/program/tuition/jd/ wrote:Local transportation, clothing, recreation, and the like are more variable items, but most single students will find that they need to budget a total of at least $74,982 for the school year.


Disregarding financial aid, you will be paying at least $225,000 for your JD. Makes the $100 seem a little less significant, eh?

Glad you guys like the pictures! I also have to apologize...they were taken on one of rare non-cloudless days. Since getting here two months ago, it has rained 1.5 times, and has been cloudly maybe 4 or 5 days. I kid you not, every other day has been deep blue skies with 75-85 degrees during the afternoon.
