Mine is fine with Firefox. So I doubt it's the browser.

Step 1- try it on a different computer

Step 2- if that doesn't work, contact Stanford

I have the same problem when I try to log in using the bookmark I made to the site in chrome, but when I click the link in the email they sent it works every time. I am on a Mac also and this is all through chrome. I don't understand it, but hope that helps!

First blog post of the cycle. http://blogs.law.stanford.edu/admissions/

This is worth bookmarking if you haven't already. Last year there was a post on the morning of the first round of calls: "It’s mid-December and I’ve not yet started to make my calls to you. That will change very soon ..."

Unexpected humorous tone makes me want this even more (is that possible?)

Happy Monday.

+1. The most beautiful thing about it is that that's her voice without a doubt. She gave me that exact advice last year, along with helping me make decisions between SLS & HLS. As a result, I deferred and am going to SLS. Any advice you can get from a Dean of Admissions is a priceless gem!

lol, jesus, easy there... we want to encourage Elshal to post so he can update if he gets anything before the rest of us.

checking in is only not cool if you're posting in a thread where everyone's waiting for something big that day or week. so if you're bumping this thread unnecessarily with a check-in late-december early-january, then you're just giving everyone a gratuitous heart attack

Checking in. Applied last night. My numbers make Stanford a reach since I'm not a URM. They gave me a need-based fee waiver, so no harm in applying :)

Anyone who has perused the 2011/12 thread know when the first decisions rolled out last year?

About the various status checkers problems: mine only worked once (in September) and has never worked ever since, I tried on several computers as well as several browsers. I recommend you contact SLS about this. That's what I did, we try a bunch of stuff such as resetting ny password but nothing worked so they will just email me directly when a decision will be made upon my application.

If my status checker says, "file submitted for review," does that mean it's complete? Thanks!

That would be surprising considering I submitted 2 days before I received my status checker with that status! Although Stanford is definitely a reach, I wouldn't consider my numbers alone enough to warrant an auto-ding.

Do you guys really think we'll hear soon? What is the earliest people received acceptances last time?

First week of December!? That is extremely early.

Good luck, fellas.

Hey everyone, just checking in here. Stanford is sort of a reach for me, as it kind of is for anyone, but I'm excited about the chance!

So I got my status checker and it says my file is incomplete, but everything that they require from me is in. I sent my dean's letter in way before I ever applied and the checker says that it is there. The only thing not checked is study abroad transcript, which I won't have. Hmm...
