Probably all admissions hands on deck for asw.


while mindful about the earlier complaints of those who have gotten in at H (or Y), this lack of decision is really frustrating. i'm extremely interested in stanford but grew up on the east coast and have no actual exposure to the school. i so wish i could make up for this at ASW but this no longer looks like a possibility. as much as i'm enamoured about the idea of small-class sizes and living in paradise, i just can't commit three years and hundreds of thousands of dollars sight unseen.

grffffffffffffffffffffffffffph.

Wait, have you gotten into Stanford but are complaining that you can't go to ASW so now Stanford is out for you?
Because if so..........................................

Yeah, that does kinda suck. Yale supposedly has a second, mini-ASW for their late admits and people who couldn't make it to the main one but S doesn't have anything similar. I mean, I'll give up my H seat in a heartbeat for SLS and if (against all odds) I get Yale, I'd give that up too without ever visiting S, but it would be nice if all admits were notified in time to make ASW.

Then again, maybe they're done with straight admits and the rest of us are all WL/dings.

I don't think so Toast. I think they're complaining that *if* they were admitted at this point in the cycle, they wouldn't be able to visit during ASW to make a completely informed decision (regarding SLS vs H/Y). See bolded passage above

Maybe someone could anonymously call and ask about the admissions timeline. Perhaps someone's girlfriend or boyfriend or parent or sibling or stepmom desperate for approval could do it

The '.' at the end is taken off when you're about to be admitted

A non-negligible number of people just checked their status checkers.

JUST IN CASE.

Anyone here sitting at 2/7 submit? Anyone willing to engage in wild speculation on what this date means? Dates here are all across the board!

I went complete and was submitted for review 2/6. Still nothing, but I'm hoping, SLS is first choice.

Would you take S over YH, though?


As of now probably not but you never know. I guess I won't be admitted in time for ASW (just lol) so I probably won't visit.

I say that because before getting Y I was sure I'd choose HLS even if I got Y, but after getting it I'm not so sure anymore and it's now 50/50. So maybe the same thing will happen with S.

I thought Y would be a moral victory but it's really exerting its pull

Just remember that there are people who would give their kidney and/or first-born children to have the chance to actually go to these schools. Collecting acceptances shouldn't be a thing.


+1 I agree. As soon as I knew I wouldn't go to school X I withdrew my application.

But to be fair to the OP it sounds like this person isn't totally sure, and in the long run I'm not sure it will hurt anyone. The class is going to be filled from the waitlist anyway, regardless of when an accepted student decides he isn't going, so the only people who lose are, I reckon, are folks who would go if they got in but wouldn't if they got WLed and people who are borderline admission but are bad at getting in off the wait-list (maybe the write a shitty LOCI?). Love to hear other people's thoughts, though.

For people that wouldn't consider S or H or other schools but are nonstop on the forums for the schools trying to get in for the sake of pure ego and then a withdrawal, meh.

harvardians looking to trade up are fine. main point was that yale is just so beyond the pale, basically the fairy tale castle of law school admissions, that a gentle admonishing seemed in order.


As an H looking to trade up, glad I have your seal of approval :) Depending on your career plans, I can see S vs. Y being a tough choice (at least, for me it would be). But if I had a Yale golden ticket in my pocket I sure as heck wouldn't be bitching about Stanford in here!
