Thanks! Still in a bit of shock...never thought I'd get in. I'm pretty sure it's my top choice.

Since Stanford’s colors are semi-Christmasy, I am trying to come up with a way to paint my nails all cute with Stanford pride. Will report back with the results.

True. And they have that dancing Redwood which looks A LOT like a Christmas tree.

Looking forward to your findings.

Well shit. That was crazy hard. After many failed attempts, this was the best I could do.

Oh damn, now I've tagged this thread even though I haven't even gotten in.

Haha! Thanks MoC, I’m sure everyone will know it’s me because I’m a teensy bit loud and crazy.

Wow, I love the enthusiasm on here-nail polish and everything!

Glad that the ASW review from last year was helpful. I started a new taking questions thread so hopefully it will answer some of your questions about SLS -> thread here

It already has a bunch of answers to 1212's questions (although I did edit them for grammar a bit before posting).

Also, regarding staying at Munger during ASW: I think last year admissions organized pairing people up when you RSVP'd. I just stayed with the same guy I stayed with during that first visit, so you don't need to go through admissions to do so. I know some people last year stayed at Munger because they knew people even after admissions ran out of hosts. (I'm sure you'll all get spots but if for some crazy reason you don't, let me know and I can connect you with someone with an empty couch/air-mattress, your preference on female or male roommates of course.)

Checking in, still in a state of shock! Though I got accepted to Harvard last week, it's going to be really tough to dissuade me from Stanford as I've been a CA kid my whole life. Thanks to Stig for the wealth of info and thanks to Amanda for posting a pic of the shirt (can't wait for mine)!

Just got the email. Can't believe I'm actually posting here--this is a dream come true! still wavering between Stanford and Harvard, but ahhh! will probably spend hours reading up on comments (Stig, your comments are incredibly helpful, thanks so much!). I want more than anything to make it to an ASW, but it might not be financially feasible from where I'd have to fly in from :(

also: T-shirts that actually fit?! my my.

So happy I can post in here! I'm ecstatic!! I was jumping up and down while Dean Deal was talking to me, but I think my voice remained calm and collected :p.

Congrats to all the new admits! Who wishes it were April already? My god, from those pictures, I can't see how anyone would choose Harvard or Yale over Stanford! Paradise.
