Unfortunately I think so. Although we'd all like to be proved wrong.

Ya that's what I'm leaning toward, although a few more wouldn't surprise me too much.

I don't think you can really say there will be no more straight acceptances, but if there are it probably won't be you that gets it...so plan accordingly.
Rapidly transitioning out of wait and see into let's do this mode here.

So you can get a DLS and then get a snail mail letter that it is a WL? They don't email you if you get Waitlisted?

Correct-both waitlists and rejections are via snail mail. If you go DLS and don't want to wait, you can call the admissions office and find out which one it is.

A friend called.

Decisions are made daily.

He also asked the million dollar question with a favourable answer: Yes, straight acceptances are still possible.

possible is better than "no more straight acceptances"

I mean, that's a little bit like them saying "if your status checker says you are under review, you are still under review."

But you got that beautiful Dillard from UVA to be proud of so you're sitting pretty.


Hey at least you got on H's waitlist (unlike me), keep waiting and I'm sure you'll get some good results

Soooo I'll be in Stanford tomorrow. Maybe I'll pop in and make an animal sacrifice in front of Faye's office or something.

She prefers large game, preferably with split hooves. And remember to spread fake palm leaves across the alter.

Also some ancient chants are probably necessary

I popped in last week on my way to Berk to be like 'look, here I am' but I got really awkward all of a sudden once I was talking to them and I don't think I did myself any favors. Luckily, they don't seem to have cared whatsoever about me as a person so they didn't even ask me my name (tho I gave them my first name anyway).


Were you announced? I could see them thinking "Wait wtf who's this guy and why is he here and why is there a pool of crimson blood from a dead bulldog in my carpet SECURITY!!!"

a school like Stanford, like their peers in the T3, really only consider pure white bulls with no stray marks, anything less won't make an impression on the admissions office...and they're pretty good at detecting bleached bulls. be sure to offer your prayers to Apis before as well as after anointing yourself, nude, as per the instructions they provide in the prospective students FAQ.

Shoot! I should have double checked the FAQ before I wrote my personal statement about how great anubis is. Thats almost as bad as forgetting to put your lsac number on the essay.

I mean, while that's better than a "the class is full so everyone still UR is SOL" response, I think it's kind of a non-answer. Like, it's still possible for Sarah Palin to be president one day in the sense that she's over 35 and a US citizen. Thank God, that's almost certainly not happening in this lifetime.

Hopefully the odds of our acceptances are similar to Hillary Clinton's chances of becoming president. I'd like THOSE odds.

Just found out DLS on the status checker in the last hour and called... I got rejected.
Good luck to ya'll!

I'm glad that I finally have gotten all the results from this cycle.
