Numbers twin.... did you have something that made you special? I want Stanford to love me!


Nothing really all that special. I had a big leadership post in college and am currently in my 2nd year of TFA, so good softs but nothing ridiculous. Good luck, I'm sure you'll get some good news!

But in all seriousness, congrats! And as a lifelong Californian I can state with confidence that you will love Palo Alto and the rest of the Golden State :)

So, is it that they are giving applications to individual professors or an admissions committee? Is that why admissions are trickling in seemingly random order?

I got the status checker finally, but now I'm incomplete.

I should have known my UG dean would forget to send in the certifying statement. :?

I specifically told my UG dean to email me when he was done. Paid the 35 bucks to courier the statement to stanford directly.
Was it worth it? probably saved me a week or two haha

Any September completes (preferably in my #s range) still in limbo? I'm trying to be positive, but if I don't hear anything by the end of the week, it'll be hard for me to feel that an acceptance is coming.

Not sure your numbers but September complete here. I'm trying to stay positive hoping that my rejection comes tomorrow. The sooner the better.

Yup, submitted day one. At this point I think I'm just hoping for a waitlist...

+1 but trying to stay positive because it seems their decisions don't follow a strict order as much as the others. Or maybe I'm delusional.

I know some schools will ask professors who may not typically be on the adcom to read certain applications, but I'm not sure if that is the case w/ Stanford. I am pretty confident based on what I've read that the number of adcom members that read an application varies between applicants so that could be affecting the decision order.

I'm a September complete as well and still haven't heard anything back yet, although I heard back from Y and H, though, so I can't complain too much.

Numbers twin, also completed in September, also haven't heard anything. I'm getting very close to caving in and buying some winter clothing since it looks like I'll be spending the next 3 years in the Northeast instead of Palo Alto.

Mad jelly about h/y but it gives me hope that you haven't heard from Stanford.

Lol, five minutes after I got into NYU I was freaking out I accidently hit the urm button, finally figured out lsac saves your completed apps...
