It seems that we are at the same number that last year's thread was as it neared its conclusion, but at a much earlier time. I'll remain on the waitlist, although I'm really hoping to hear good news once the June LSAT scores are released. I wish Stanford were a little more transparent with their waitlist. Granted, you know what you sign up for when you remain on a waitlist, but it would still be very comforting to receive sporadic (I'm talking about month-long intervals) information about the waitlist and movement, instead of having to use the limited information available the internet to surmise the situation. :p


They've got a facebook group for the WLed?

Thank you! I sent a LOCI recently. I hope I get some news soon... I don't want to wait until the end of July. :(

Thanks to those of you who are providing continuous updates to us (me?). Riding this waitlist out, as I hear that S makes offers up until Sept. Really hoping for a reasonable response, though lol. Happy 4th!

I've been a longtime lurker, but decided to join to say that I've withdrawn, so best of luck to those who remain. Also, fwiw, at the beginning of the waitlist season I heard that it was a pretty normal year at Stanford, in that they were about 40 short of the desired class size.

Thanks! Best of luck to you!

unlikelyjapan: *sigh* Just getting on to post my usual sadness at seeing the FB group grow without my addition. Thanks, though. :p

While there are probably some incoming law students who are not on FB, there are definitely still people in the group who have deposited elsewhere.

There are 6 people in the group that I know are enrolling at YLS in the fall (and they show up in the Yale directory as incoming law students), and there are also 2 people who have had HLS on their FBs for a while now. Not sure how these 8 managed to stay in the group.

Most of the people in the SLS group (including recent additions) are listed as incoming law students in the Stanford directory. I randomly sampled some of the names, and there are several people in the FB group who are not listed (and they have been in the group for a few months). I presume that this could be due to a number of factors: the FB name doesn't match exactly, etc. But some may have deposited elsewhere or deferred.

There are also at least 2 current students in the group, and of course, the SLS administrative account is also in the group.

So, as far as I can tell, at least 11 of the 169 are not in the incoming class.

Hope this helps, and good luck! :)

What are you guys doing about tuition at other schools that you've deposited at? Holding off for how long?

Only on Stanford's waitlist. I withdrew from all other schools. I'm thinking until the first week of August (which is when they start sending rejections, I think lol). I see that some people from the thread were admitted, though. Previously there was only one WL -- > Admit, so congrats to those new admits!

Also, new blog about the wait list by Faye. http://blogs.law.stanford.edu/admission ... your-feet/

Wonder if something inspired her to write that.

Totally don't understand flip-floppers, totally unprofessional I think. At this point you should have your plan of action together if Stanford makes the call.
