I mean, feel free to wear out that F5 key if you'd like, but just FYI-once you go to "submitted for review," your status doesn't change one bit until you get a phone call (for acceptances) or until it changes to "decision letter sent" (which means a WL/ding without an accompanying call, or email if international). No date changes, no other changes.

Exactly 10 days for me.


Looks like I'm getting dinged =/



Don't be so pessimistic. According to the spreadsheet, some people took a month to go complete. You'll be fine! :lol:


I actually ended up getting my status checker today! :D

The excitement for my newfound status checker was short lived. :(

So the 30th is the next predicted date for calls, then, based on history and our very precise science of speculations?

I've heard they fixed the status checker--it shouldn't change at all.

Hey guys just one question, does Stanford has a history of admitting applicants late in the cycle? I mean What about those submitting late? I tried sending a letter to Stanford regarding submission of feb lsat and they approved it just yesterday. I am very well aware of the fact that I am highly disadvantaged now that I am submitting my Feb lsat. But I just want to know if you guys know someone who has done the same thing or has anybody here planning to submit really late in the cycle?

Thanks!

Last admits pre-WL were mid April. It was only 3-5 spots by that point though. Seemed like some were newly considered candidates, some were files they'd been holding on for a while. There was decent waitlist action in August, but thats a re-evaluation of the entire pool

I was one of the April admits. I can tell you that as we approached ASW, Faye and the faculty committee definitely worked overtime to get as many people evaluated and invited as possible. I got the call on a Saturday morning, and got further emails that night, actually. I believe 2 others were admitted with me as well. After the initial January wave, offers basically slow to a trickle - 2 on one day, 1 a couple days later, etc.

Did you submit really early in the cycle? Mind sharing your stats?

This was a disappointment/relief to hear. I'll make sure to check back here to congratulate/sympathize and update when I get my ding in mid-March.

I am assuming this January wave is a big one. Has it happened yet?

Yeah oops... I posted this and right after I went downstairs and got the letter from Columbia. The law school gods are having a fun time with me today.

So, to revise: Oh please take your time, dear Stanford. We are in no rush whatsoever. We know your sweet, sweet admission is worth every second of the wait.

So, fellow Stanford waiters, I'm home sick and instead of writing my 250 or filling out my NeedAccess, I decided to again casually peruse last year's Stanford thread.

Last year, Dean Deal called a bunch of people on Wednesday 1/30, including a January complete.
Then she called a few more people on Friday 2/1, and a few more on Monday 2/4, and one more on Tuesday 2/5.
Then nothing until she made a few calls on Tuesday 2/12.
And then there was absolutely no movement until the ding wave began on Wednesday 2/20.
More dings were reported on Friday 2/22, Monday 2/25, and Thursday 2/28.
The first acceptances after the mini-wave on Tuesday 2/12 were on Thursday 2/28, and then she released a few more acceptances on Friday 3/1.

For the most part, calls were made in mid-late morning PST, though at least a few calls were made later in the afternoon.

Take this information with a veritable bucket of salt, as we've already seen fairly significant deviation from last year's cycle this year.
