The "If" that begins the sentence "If you have any questions, please contact the SLS Office of Admissions at admissions@law.stanford.edu" is now erroneously displayed at the top center (between the "Bio/Address/Demographics" box and the "Status" box) of my Applicant Status Report. Anyone else noticed this? I checked my status using two different browsers this morning, and the page was displayed the same way with each of them, so I think the glitch is on SLS's end.

Otherwise, there's been no change; I'm still under review.


It's been there the whole time

This has been the case for me since I got the status checker. I wouldn't read too much into it - it seems like an ordinary glitch.

Word.

Perhaps we applicants can take heart in the knowledge that Stanford Law School communiques have foibles, too.

Wow.

So I know that TLS is not representative of the whole applicant pool... AND that not everyone's first move when getting an acceptance is to go update their TLS friends.

But every time I see an isolated incident of just one call going out, I can't help but agonize over what the heck is going on in that admissions office. Like did Dean Deal make one call and get distracted with other pressing issues? Did she take a coffee break/a bathroom break/etc.? Is she coming back to make more calls? Please come back. Pretty pleaaassee.

That being said, congrats on the acceptance, GMA!!!

All my love Specs, but my JS2-deprived heart can muster little sympathy for your cambridge-bound tuckus :wink:

Hahaha thanks for the love guys. I wasn't looking for sympathy, I am in a great position right now, just trying to drop some knowledge for future generations. :)

I will be hanging around for a bit to join in the celebrating of those who get in and to empathize with those who don't.

Odd that there was just one - that we know of - today (CONGRATS btw!!). More calls tomorrow maybe?

I'm glad I didn't go DLS but at the same time it is killing me to be stuck in the middle for so long :/

I have a non-TLS friend who apparently got in today. 4.0 w/ an LSAT above median. Not sure of exact score.

Huh, so I guess there was a wave that just missed most of the TLS crowd. I haven't been keeping track but have Thursday/Friday combos been common? Looking for something to hope for tomorrow!

Bad.

It likely means rejection at this point if you haven't received a phone call. Sorry man.

I had an feeling that's what it would be. Oh well. I'll frame the letter regardless lol. It's been fun ladies and gentlemen! As I make my grand exit on Valentine's Day, I wish you all the best of luck!! I'll be rooting for you guys!

By the way, we should all stay in touch after we're done getting into schools. It's quite a journey we're all on and it'd be good to be all connected in real life as we'll all be future colleagues.

Happy Valentine's Day folks!
