I was driving and received a call from a 650 number and I got hysterical. Needless to say, it was an automated phone call from kaiser permanente. WHY torment me, kaiser?! WHY

Also, interview with SLS students here, in case you needed any more convincing of how lovely SLS is: http://youtu.be/yrrqleeldM4

I only want to hear negative things about SLS until I get a decision; that way the blow is softened if the news I get is bad and the torment until then is less.

Speculation has been at a minimum again. Come on guys, let's give the Harvard thread a run for its money!

I thought for sure there'd be calls yesterday, today, or tomorrow because last year they called on Monday, Feb 4th and Tuesday Feb, 5th. Since today and yesterday are over and tomorrow is the 5th, I'm going to say that a huge wave of calls is coming tomorrow.

Please, Dean Deal? You know you want to!

Probably because of the differences in the admissions process. Stanford doesn't have any JS1 stuff or anything for us to gossip about, it's pretty much out of our hands and time for a long wait the moment we submit our apps.

Yeah, I think it's a combination of the two, and I believe fewer people apply to Stanford.

Also, please call me, Dean Deal? I will make this thread extremely active!

You're right about the application pool, S and Y saw drops in apps while Harvard saw a rise :lol: . I get that people think they have a better shot at Harvard since they admit a bigger class, but isn't Stanford just a tad bit less numbers driven?

It's definitely an "I love to watch you walk away" situation...

Is anybody else in the boat where you applied early enough that you don't want to hear ANYTHING from Stanford in the month of Feb??

Clearly it's because of my incredibly exciting polls in the HLS thread. Duh. ;)

You don't like the one poll I've had since November?

I hear that toast, i've been complete since early to mid-september. The problem is, with 4 months to go over my app, if they haven't called me by now…

Because Harvard actually lets people in and they do it in large waves. Here one or two people get in and then they disappear from the thread.

The fact that it is less numbers driven makes it, in some sense, more difficult to get in. Also, the high GPA floor makes Stanford extremely unfriendly to splitters and I think with the "Retake!!" mantra of TLS splitters make up a significant portion of this community.

As a splitter though, this could just be me being bitter.

I feel this too -- but I'd rather be ostensibly "held" than rejected. Plus if I get that ding in April, I'll most likely have solidified my plans anyway so the cold, hard sting will feel less...sting-y
