It's actually ding or waitlist, but waitlists haven't started yet.

Should we be honored we survived thus far, or angry that they're still dangling the carrot? Maybe they just left mine so they could have a good laugh later, too.

Kind of. You learn ahead of time by the status checker. If it says decision letter sent and u haven't gotten a welcome , then u are dinged or possibly wait listed.



Thanks for this one Seoulless. So technically acceptance goes via email? Whoa so it's gonna take a bit longer to know if you are wait listed or dinged! :shock:


Acceptance: you get a phone call out of the blue, no change on status checker
WL: email
Deny: DLS on status checker and no email. You receive a letter in the mail a few days later


Okay that's much clearer. Thanks orangec90. Good luck to all of us waiting

I'm unable to log on to status checker (it says my userid is not recognized). Anyone else with that?

Others in this situation might want to chime in if they are still around, but I know of at least one deny email notification this month.

Were they international?

Also, waitlist isn't via email (or at least it hasn't been in previous years). Your status changes to DLS (just like with dings), and you can call to find out whether it's a ding or WL, but either way, the official notification is via snail mail.

Email notification will happen if Dean Deal can't get through to you by phone. I received a call + voicemail and she said nothing about acceptance, she said she'd follow it up by email. In the email she said I got in.

I've never heard of an email ding, though.

You are right. My bad. I just checked with the friend again. Status checker change to DLS but no email.

you need to find the way of zen. seek the mind above the mind. stare at the Stanford Law logo on the status checker until enlightenment dawns or your decision letter is sent, which amounts to the same thing.

Don't blame yourself; I've learned that it is almost always best to blame the equipment. Unlike every other law school and despite its close proximity to Silicon Valley, SLS hasn't been able to figure out how to use the interweb to email decisions. Hence, we keep checking....

I feel like physical mail is classier than email in this day and age. Faye's definitely one of the stalwart veterans of law school admissions, and I'd like to think this is a reflection of her values.
