I totally understand and appreciate that they’re doing LGBT outreach but standard mail really, really isn’t the best medium without letting people opt-in first.

Like the others I'm a bit speechless they did this. Glad everything is okayish.

Does anyone know if a Dean's cert required with the application? If so, how long do you have to send it in?

No, it’s not required with your app.

I've been putting off submitting for so long because I just can't think of anything good to write for the optional essays. Shamelessly looking for validation for submitting without them. Have been people done this? Or should I just try to write something half-hearted? All I have now is a pretty straightforward, boring answer to the library question.

Stanford is known for wanting people to demonstrate interest (they want an LOR specifically for them, etc.). I don't think the point is for us to blow their minds with these pretty informal prompts. I'd just submit it.

I would just submit something to tell them they’re special.
-1L at SLS that didn’t submit them and only got in off the waitlist once (s)he sent a compelling letter of continued interest
