I know, and it's definitely better than being waitlisted or rejected, but SO has deadline for PhD program in a few days and I have a scholarship deadline same day, so an actual decision would be really really helpful. I'd go to Stanford in 1/2 a heartbeat, but I'll be very sad to walk away from a lovely scholarship only to find a rejection waiting for me!

I totally understand. That sucks. Did you ask for a rush on your decision?

And what is the consequence of accepting the scholarship and then withdrawing?

While the Yale dream has ended with a whimper, I, too, am still UR at Stanford. You guys really think this is a good thing? I hope so. Maybe we'll be the "few offers" still left! Obviously, she's looked at our apps several times by now - and I'm hoping she'll find room for us.

pleasepickme, based on that blog posting, I think it's likely that, if you will ever be accepted outright, it will happen within the next few days. Good luck!!

You need to let them know about your SO. I have / had the same situation as you, and SLS is more than willing to provide a quick decision.

I have let them know about both, so here's hoping!!!!! Deadline is Thursday, so maybe by then?? Thanks for the encouraging words, everyone. With this process dragging on for so long, it's easy to forget that there may still be a happy ending.

Here's hoping for calls tomorrow. I'll wait for Stanford forever (literally, Dean Deal, ever!), but I'd really like to be able to make decisions and plan the next part of my life.

I've heard that Stanford lets a lot of people off the waitlist. There's still a chance!

So are people expecting phone calls today?

I think if they have any chance of wrapping up the cycle by friday they're going to have to call a little more than usual....atleast hopefully.

FWIW, the waitlist letter said that they were done accepting people. That doesn't necessarily mean that they are done notifying people of acceptances though, so good luck yall.

Wow done accepting people? crazy. Then why are so many of us still labeled under review? No wait list or rejection yet....I don't know what to make of this.

Can you post the original writing from the letter?
