I think its less important to be like "you're so great" but if you have something like "because only you have this program and only this area has these things" that might be useful to them. I think esp on the waitlist these things might be helpful.

I think this cycle has shortened my life, heart attack or not. And to think I may do it again :? :o

My browser has decided to play games with my heart and consistently populates the left side of the status checker before the side that matters. Always a rush.

Oy this is a long wait. I'm not holding out a lot of hope for Stanford, though. I just don't know what's taking so long.

Maybe they're expanding their class and piloting a TLS Fellows program?

It's probably that. I'm going with that.


Lol

From S's website:
...However, some applications are held until the committee has reviewed the entire applicant pool. This second review occurs in April, at which time the class will be filled. (A small number of applications will be held for possible use in filling vacancies that may occur during the summer.)


I suppose we are in that "second review" now?

But wouldn't you be told if you're being held?

I think "held" at Stanford is an unofficial designation like it was at H this year, in that you aren't told officially that you are held, but you can surmise that a lack of ding or accept on a longstanding application (mine goes back to Nov) is a "held" application

Would a complete in early January be a long enough wait to be considered a "held" application? I feel like my wait time pales in comparison to some of the brave soldiers on this forum.

What this thread needs is more baseless speculation.

(just kidding, I'm as guilty as anyone)

No, what this thread needs is to see some more movement!

Based on this exchange I predict movement tomorrow morning.

Hey, our speculation isn't baseless! It has a perfectly weak and transient base!

FWIW, my friend sent in a long LOCI after being held a few cycles ago and didn't get in. My other friend did with a LOCI. They had similar numbers and softs.

I'm not sure Faye cares. But I guess it can't hurt to try.
