My understanding is that Stanford reviews applications in the order they are received, with the exception of some that it holds until April. Is that right? If it is, and my complete date is a few weeks before that of some people who were admitted today, is it right to infer that I'm either waitlisted, rejected, or waiting until April? Or am I overreading something that could be happenstance?

I'm thinking people with Sept/Oct/Nov complete dates will be waitlisted/rejected/de facto held. Not sure about the more recent dates.

Disagree with this. From reading over last year's thread, it seems like they do start going back and accepting older complete dates later in the cycle-and, according to LSN, two of the acceptances today were September applicants.

How much later? That may just be what I mean by holding those applications until a later date before making a decision.

I agree with Koala out of sheer optimism.

Welp, 150 PM. Looks like the long lunch break today is coming to a close, time for more calls?

Mine's mid-December. But there are some people admitted in the thread from early January. I guess it can be +/- a few weeks in complete date terms?

I think so. That's how it's been so far too.

This has to be true because mnindc got in today and applied in Sept. and so did I.

Also, mnindc and I have similar numbers (though his are more Stanford friendly than mine) so I have to accept this out of self-interest.

I'm trying to take comfort in the fact that those accepted today with January complete dates (that we know of) were URMs...maybe the first non-URM January-complete acceptances will come in the next wave :lol:

The first dings on TLS were 2/20 last year, I'm quite certain. I didn't cross-check the TLS thread with LSN, though.

In last year's TLS thread they start talking about LSN rejections on the 14th and 15th. I think that the 20th was the first day a TLSer got rejected though.

This is what I read viewtopic.php?f=7&t=192688&start=1350

So I very (very) rarely post on TLS but I wanted to come out of my lurkerdom to say that

I JUST GOT INTO STANFORD!!!!!!! I have been waitlisted the past two years at Stanford so I have literally been waiting for 2 years, 4 months and 12 days for this phone call. Absolutely blown away.

Dean Deal called at 3pm Pacific time

I went complete 11/27
LSAT: 174 (retake)
GPA: 3.9+

Good luck everyone!!
