confused by this definition and your interpretation of "K-BA".

to illustrate, which of the following are you considering "non-traditional"?
(1) Bachelors anticipated @ age 27, applied to law school senior year attending in the fall (still 27).
(2) Bachelors received in 2008 @ age 22, now age 27 and attending in the fall (still 27)

Many of us applied 6+ months ago and haven't heard anything.

I think what Bagel means with a K-BA/BS being "someone who is graduating college at a non-traditional age" is that they took some time between K and BA/BS (I.E. your case 1 is a non-traditional applicant).

"An applicant who is older but a K-BA/BS just means they've had WE but they're not considered non-traditional students." is your case 2.

edit: put spacing for clarity

The first. It's someone who graduated undergrad at a non-traditional age. I think taking time off before law school is the norm, so that wouldn't be non-traditional. Some examples on non-traditional students are like enlisted men and women who have come back to school after their 4-5 yr contract. Students who had to work before going to college. Young mothers. Etc etc.

Yeah, what the above poster said. Little late on that.

Doesn't matter. Aba rules allow you to keep your stanford app open even after you say yes to nyu. This applies only if stanford waitlists or hasn't yet made a decision for you at the time you say yes.

$500 when you are presumably about to agree to pay close to $200k to go to Stanford..... cheap.

In the long run, yes. In the short run? Not everybody has $1000 (assuming you're depositing at two schools) at the moment to burn without putting them in a not so great place.

Does Stanford "hold" like HLS?

I apologize if this is addressed somewhere. I have little hope for SLS so haven't really researched the process as much.

no

I'm a relative newcomer to these parts, but my understanding was that Stanford did informally hold applications, but just doesn't inform the applicant that they have been held.

Well then it's not like Harvard right?
If the OPs question was does Stanford take a really long time with applications then the answer is yes. But surely the OP knows this based off the question.

If the law school application process were more like Game of Thrones this whole thing would be a lot more tolerable.

Just saying, I'll be a killer bannerman for you if you admit me, House of Stanford.
