Don't worry about it. Mine's checked as well even though I've never studied abroad.

It's the same way for me. I wouldn't worry about it.

Hi,
Does anyone know whether the status dates update/change, like they do at NYU and Georgetown, as applications are being moved through the applicant pile?

Mine still says, "Your application has been submitted for review" for about 2.5 months here. It doesn't sound horrible...unless everyone else's is updating...?

I wouldn't be able to attend otherwise, so I'm holding off on applying before I know for sure. I've looked all over their website and on the PDF they have breaking down their policies and can't seem to find anything. Was planning on calling Monday, but figured maybe someone knew. Thanks!


Hi there, fellow international applicant!

I can't provide you with a direct link as I am on my phone and a bit in a hurry but I checked in details for this information last year and I am PRETTY SURE (let's say 99%, just in case it might have changed or my memory might be wrong!) that Stanford law school do have a program similar to Y and H for international students. I'll try to get back to you on this when I'll be on my laptop!

Mine's been like that since the end of October. Not quite 2.5 months, but it sucks. I feel like status date changes give us something to do while waiting

Stanford sent me a fee waiver last week...I know I have no shot of admission there, why would they tease me like this?! YP be damned, that's just mean!

I thought they didn't do fee waivers? Or is it need based?

It's not need-based, but maybe it could be military service based? I have a hard time believing that could be the case, considering I never submitted anything to them asking if they offered fee waivers for my service. It's all very confusing.

When I initially applied, my study abroad option was not checked and my file was listed as incomplete even though everything had been turned in. I emailed them and informed them that I would not have a study abroad transcript and they emailed me back almost immediately and told me that it was fixed and my file was not complete. So evidently it has to be checked.

Any insight as to the day when decisions will be released this week? My guess is Wednesday, but there's really nothing to support that. 8)

There's nothing indicating that SLS will wait to give out decisions after the new year. If past cycles are any indication, we should be seeing some acceptances later this week. The admissions blog also tends to post around this time indicating when decisions will be going out. If they'd chosen to postpone acceptances, I'm sure we'd get an update.

ETA: Yale also doesn't wait until after the new year. So the above post is completely off base.

In fact over here it looks like TLS' first Yale phone call acceptance happened this afternoon....

Come on Stanford. For the sake of our sanity, at least give us a blog post of when you expect to start making the calls. :-) Especially if you're gonna make us wait until after Christmas.

Yale has already let in a handful of people in. I'm guessing Stanford (hopefully) starts later this week.

Had a dream that I got into Stanford. Was shaking and crying with happiness. My parents were unimpressed, and there was also a unicorn at ASW. I was so depressed when I woke up ): no Stanford AND no unicorns.

The day isn't over... You definitely could see some Palo Alto love today and if you visit the man in the alley, you may be able to see some unicorns while you're at it!

Be sure to update your application with a C&F addendum when you're finished :wink:
