Hey guys, I plan on applying to Stanford next cycle and just wanted to see if you all could answer a few questions. First, is it silly to write a "Why Stanford" statement.. I know its generally thought of as ridiculous to write a "Why Harvard/Yale" and I know Chicago frowns upon extra documents but Im not sure about Stanford. Second, anyone know when Stanford begins reviewing applications?

Sorry :(.
Assuming you'll do the same for me, I'll hold off on the whole "you have such amazing options regardless" platitude.

Ok, not to make things more complicated, but they sent me an e-mail today telling me I was WLed, and that they sent me the letter on April 12. Since I'd called them on April 13 and they told me I was UR, I was confused, so I called, and they said something about not notifying people of decisions on the phone. So...?

Good luck to all still waiting! :D

Maybe it's worth emailing them instead of calling? They might respond with an email. I would LOVE IT if they emailed, just get it over with faster!

Ha, I'm not that smart (or that patient) to pull off a scheme like that. But, just advice to all those who continue to call: if possible, verify that, in fact, a letter was not already sent!

I still find it weird that the letter hasn't reached me. I know it's East Coast, but it seems like it would be here by now, like everyone else's.

FYI - that saxamaflob profile is extremely strange. It was created in December and was like the #4 viewed profile on LSN after like three weeks. I think it's fake.

turned in my wl form in person just now...

i spoke to a couple 3L's in my PE tennis class this morning and they told me that I should try and ask someone if I can go to the ASW this weekend... well I asked Faye and she said no it's only for admitted students, figures

man, after almost three years of doing my MS part-time while working, I finally quit my job in December to go back and wrap up my MS before law school. Just as I'm starting to really enjoy the campus and love it here, I have to move somewhere else. I'm happy to have at least experienced Stanford a little bit, but I seriously can't get myself excited about going anywhere else anymore.

Sorry, tintin. I was pulling for you from afar. They sure took their time with your application.

Good luck choosing between Chicago and Penn; they're both great law schools.

First, I'm really sorry to hear that, tintin, I was pullling for our little UR crew. What great choices you have though, congratulations on them!

Second, there goes what they told me about not telling decisions by phone.
