384 total (out of 430 offers, which includes WL)


A friend currently at SLS told me 30% of her class came in off the WL


If that is true, there are no straight admits to be had .3*180 = 54. Also, they only made 409 offers last year, but 433 the previous year which is more analogous to this cycle.


No straight admits on LSN since March, and if last year's pattern is any indication, it's waitlists and dings from here on out.

Of course, i'm also just a bitter waitlister ;)

I'm looking at LSN and there are so many people who submitted their apps after I did and with better pure numbers than mine that already got decisions one way or the other. I wonder what reason they have for still holding on to my app.

As often said, it's not just about the numbers, right? For me, from complete to decision, Stanford spent over 15 times the amount of time NYU spent and over twice as much as Yale and Harvard. Even at the ASW, there were people who heard back from Stanford first yet were still waiting on, e.g., NYU and UVA.

I'd take their holding onto your application as a good sign. Perhaps you could write an LOCI or get a targeted LOR?


I've actually already written a LOCI, but I haven't submitted it out of concern that I still end up getting waitlisted and then don't really have anything to send in after that. Wasn't sure if it would be strong enough to tip the scales.

Unfortunately won't be able to get the LOR. If I could get an academic one, I'd definitely go for it, but I've been out of school so long it's not feasible. I'll just play the waiting game with the rest of y'all!
