They probably found it but never got around to sending the confirmation. Stanford's email communications have been spotty in my case; they didn't send me a completion email until I wrote them to ask about it, but my file had long before been complete.
I had a similar experience in the Fall. I wrote asking if I were complete and I got two emails back: one saying yes, and another that was their boilerplate "Complete" email.

My experience was precisely what you describe. I doubt that we ever would have received confirmation had we not asked.

is it standard LOCI email protocol to attach the letter as a word document (addressed to Dean Deal)? if so, what do you write in the body of the email? (sorry if these questions have been asked umpteen times).

Lol! Well then, I stand corrected. I guess going off the impression she gave at the presentation would lead people astray. She didn't give explicit guidance then, which dudester has provided.

You might be better off sending it as a pdf attachment so you don't have to worry about formatting issues.

I don't know if it is standard but it is what I did so at least you won't be alone.

I sent in a LOCI because I was so worried that I needed to send one, but now I feel like it is terrible. And I just want to rip it out of cyberspace. It was not professional enough, was too long, and I just found a typo. Bleh. They probably were going to reject me anyway.

long time info moocher, first time poster: in earlier. applied near deadline. non-URM.

gotta weigh against penn 3-year jd/mba but probably returning to palo alto

so thrilled to delete the shortcut to this thread but still somehow paranoid about finding a small envelope in the mailbox

Congratulations! :D The Penn joint-degree program must be tempting, but there's really no place like Stanford.

Anyone somewhat relieved this process is ending but extra anxious that the chance of being accepted is shrinking and shrinking with each passing day?
I mean, I'm not, at all... lol
