Welcome to the new Stanford thread. First it was status checkers, now every page this is being asked.

Good times.

I'm convinced Dean Deal and the committee are running an experiment on how long it takes us to regress to complete mental cases.

That's what the history books will say about this new experiment once this thread turns into the hunger games.

Have admits been getting a semi-personalized email from Liz Magill?

It reads like a form letter where they went "Your excellent record at <insert college here> - both in the classroom and out..."

Yes and No - mine reads: "Your excellent record at <insert college here>, your work experience with <company>, and your interest in <law topic>." I guess my record at my college outside of the classroom wasn't excellent.

True dat... I've convinced myself that YLS is the worst LS in the world, where I would receive an abysmal legal education too superfluous to comprehend and where I would free to death at the onset of winter.

That being said, most of what I have decided it true.

Yeah, everyone I talk to basically laughs in my face when I say, "HLS is great, but I'm still waiting on SLS and YLS, and for clerkships, those schools are more secure. I need to think about things." The answer is always, "Well, I know a certain someone who got into Harvard, and his name is BARACK OBAMA :smug:"

Yeah, HLS will get more big name people b/c it attracts the type of people who want to have big names. Also, cuz it has 3X the student body.

At this point, I'm so confounded by my options that I am reserving judgment until after ASWs. I remember the moment I fell in love with my UG while visiting and knew that I had to go there, and I'm hoping a magical moment like that occurs during one of the law school visits. (Also, you flatter me about SLS... :oops: )

DLS indeed. Not unexpected, but it stings. I really wanted this one. Harvard and Yale I couldn't care less about. Stanford, though, stanford was special. Just to confirm, no email means no hope of making it on the waitlist?
