Were those accepted notified via phone?


Yes, it looks like everyone who was accepted got a phone call from the Dean.
Well, for everyone who has been waiting, today is finally here! Good luck everyone!

Any May 10 deposit deadlines out there? Curious if May 1 is it.

Haha, does anyone else doubt that Ryan Lee is his real name? I'm skeptical...

The numbers comment makes me think there won't be any more acceptances being rolled out.
I wish Dean Deal would have at least thrown us a bone and let us know what's happening to those that are still waiting...

when were you accepted? i'm trying to figure out if the may 1 deadline is re:postmark or if the actual check needs to be received by that date.

I read this as a middle-finger-type gesture toward all the still under reviews. I mean quite honestly for those of us who applied relatively early on (early enough to expect a response at least) this is just about as inappropriate as it can get.

EDIT: What I meant was, yes it doesn't bode well for us and I'm pretty unhappy about hearing this type of thing before getting any response. Obviously a little frustrated.

Considering the post mentions around 220 outstanding acceptances for a class of 180, I really think our odds are looking pretty slim at this point.

220 seems a small number when you consider its yield. Isn't it close to 50% or am I way off?

Those numbers alone actually don't sound bad. They definitely have more than 220 outstanding acceptances. 220 I think was the number of people at ASW. Stanford's yield historically has been near 50%, I think?

I feel like you may have already been dinged if SLS didn't llike something about your file/feel like you would be a good fit in the class? I hadn't heard from HLS and decided to withdraw my application this past weekend. Today i received an interview request. The law school admissions process is a mystery to me, but at this point I feel like no news should equal good news (or at least waitlist territory)?

SLS yield is around 50% and several people at ASW are definitely not planning to matriculate. Many are planning to defer and have extended deadlines in order to make a decision re:deferrals. No idea how this will all pan out, but I think there is still hope.

Why is this? Why do you think still under review is worse than DLS-WL?

I agree. In addition, it is also telling that she had time enough to update her blog as opposed to going through the under review pile and making a decision. I reckon we won't hear today. They'll wait for the mail tomorrow, see how many deposit checks they receive, and then ding us all to kingdom come.

I guess there isn't a good reason to think this. No reason to think anything until you hear I guess. There certainly aren't many if any non-WL acceptances left, but there could be a few. Again, I'm just frustrated.

I thought today was the absolute last day to hear something back, no?

It's not definitive on their website, they'll 'try' to have everything done by today. But seeing as there is a may 1st deposit deadline(I think), it makes sense for them to have an idea of how many of their initial admits will actually accept.

Thanks! I'll need it. I'm just gonna wait for the letter I think to see if its WL or reject.
Good luck to you too on getting off the WL.

Good luck! Did you get an e-mail notifying you of DLS?
