I'm maintaining some hope that there are still some acceptances left in the tank. Good luck everyone.
...did this happen last year? or is this just a really crazy year for stanford?
This is a really crazy year all around. Low applicants put a crunch on numbers at the high end with every school trying to play cautiously to make sure they can keep their numbers while not admitting too many people. Harvard's put tons of people on hold and hasn't moved on them either, which is probably delaying a lot of Stanford admits from accepting. Brinkmanship all the way.
But that's the thing, I am not a low number applicant. I don't know what would be taking them so long to make a decision :/
i feel as though they're still considering the ones that are left. maybe a lot of us will ultimately ride the waitlist or be rejected, but the fact that we haven't received decisions is telling. we could have easily been rejected or waitlisted last week, or the week before last. perhaps stanford is waiting to see who withdraws after asw or after yale/harvard/t-6 deposit deadlines. clinging to hope!
