Sort of a weird question but for those who were submitted, did your email address (as its displayed in your status checker) change to lowercase letters? A friend of mine told me that this was the "status checker hack" when he was applying and I'm wondering if it still works? Apparently once Stanford had made a decision, your email address would be changed from all caps to lowercase letters and you'd get a decision within a day or two thereafter.

if DLS + lowercase letters --->in
if DLS + no change ---> Ding/WL

Thought it was interesting and was wondering if anyone could confirm?

I have not been admitted, my email is in lowercase letters though. I didn't notice it before, so I can't say if it has changed. Is your email all uppercase?

Yeah, it's been fixed. People with lowercase emails probably started off that way; there were a few like that last cycle too, and they were all furious because the emails did change before a phone call and so they couldn't tell in advance. :(

Mine is also in lowercase, and IIRC it has been for a long time. No decision.

Aw, come on. As last year's applicants can attest, it is just not the Stanford thread without freakouts about the status checker every page! The lowercase/upper case debate is classic and soon someone will panic that they can't log into their status checker. It's practically tradition at this point! :D :P

Surprised to see no action today. I guess they are on a new schedule?

I got a phone call during an interview today. My phone was in my back pocket on vibrate. And I sat there thinking:

wait, what? all my friends either know where I am or know better than to call me. It's 4:30. I haven't been online since this morning I don't know what's going on. Who could be calling me at 4:30?

Stanford. Stanford is calling me.


Left the interview.

It was my grandmother.

She had butt dialed me. :cry:

Indeed. Weren't the tea leaves strongly suggesting the 30 was going to be a big day?

Yes. Surprising how Yale and Stanford have been quiet. Last year the 28th-30th as seen on LSN were big days.

My IRL friends think I'm nerotic for checking my checkers every morning. Then I read posts on TLS like the ones found on this page, and that's when I know I am still sane.
