For example, mention specific programs you are interested in and/or professors with whom you would like to work. If you have other personal reasons for wanting to attend Stanford, definitely mention those.

Anyone can say Stanford is their #1. Not everyone can convincingly demonstrate the same sentiment.


Completely agree. Also, stating that Stanford is #1 without submitting recommendation letters that are targeted would probably put your sincerity in question. Those letters are great ways to convey why Stanford is your #1 without using valuable space in your PS.

I thought I was just being delightfully faux-British, but perhaps there was additional unintended meaning. Or maybe he was amused by the irony of "full stop" followed by a period.

This, plus the faux-British, plus the fact that you never see this anymore. It's also a holdover from the days of the telegram. Just win all around.

Decidedly UN-Internet, might I add.

Can't believe I actually laughed at that, lol. Also, can't believe I'm home before 10 on a Friday night. Damn you, Beat the Clock!

Does anyone happen to know what Stanford's report request schedule is right now? Sent another LOR to LSAC, assigned it, but I'm not sure when they'll request it.

It says "The law school report will be updated and sent each time LSAC receives a letter of recommendation" on LSAC, but I think it's changed since then.

Stanford does have a propensity (as does Y it seems) to do a bunch of late admits, so maybe we'll see a couple of mini-waves now that the application deadline has passed.

While Stanford is the pipe dream of all pipe dreams for me, Faye and co. wait until early-mid April to admit some people. They're still sitting on a lot of applications. So, keep hope alive!

ugggh waitlists! i dread the waitlist. i hate uncertainty. i've heard they wait until april to reject a lot of people though, even early applicants. doesn't make much sense but that's how they roll i guess...

my roommates tell me there's a letter from stanford waiting at home for me, so i guess that means a ding. oh well, i expected it. looks like three more years of crappy northeast weather for me...
