Oh, and UCLA: CD-ROM. That airfare thing is pretty impressive, BTW.

Could the admits mention their completion dates, if they get the chance? I know that a few of you applied very early indeed during the cycle, so I was wondering if they appear to be going chronologically.

Congratulations to you!! By evening, do you mean after 5 pm?? When did you complete?

We're nearly numbers twins, so your acceptance gives me a lot of hope!

I meant the evening here (Eastern), around 7:15. So still business hours for Stanford, I suppose, but after I had given up obsessing about it for the day. I looked at a couple of threads from past years, and it actually looks like the pattern they followed today (early morning + right before closing) is pretty consistent. Good luck!

Feel free to add to the list.


Boalt = airfare.


yep I think airfare officially tops the Stanford t-shirt



I don't think the subsidized airfare is given to everyone though. Right?

Boalt only gives $350 for airfare and it's only like a half day event

SLS gives $400 plus ride to and from airport and it's a 3 day event with all meals and activities paid for. Last year they took people out bowling and covered the drinks. Then golfing the next day

Is this for all admitted students? Or do you have to submit a need-based app for it?

all admitted students.

Not sure if they're cutting back this year b/c of the economy. I doubt it though

I definitely did not.

Congrats to all those admitted. Even on a rainy cold day with a hellacious four-hour Torts final, Stanford is the best place in the world to be. Definitely plan to come to ASW, and actually come for the whole event (unlike me). Besides, my wife is (maybe) making the desserts for the dessert receptions -- definitely a step up from the crap they served us last year. I came for one day, hell-bent on the University of Michigan. That one day alone changed my perspective, and here I sit. Many of you will feel the same way, I'm sure.

I've thought really hard about it, and have come to a conclusion that I am pretty comfortable with:



I'd definitely give up one testicle to attend SLS.

I love how this thread is causing everyone to reveal their gender. As for me, I'd be happy to donate my first-born to SLS.

Which is fine since I don't plan to have children. :P

In at SLS, got the nod yesterday by email.

Applied last week of September, complete as of first week of October.

Congrats to all the other admits and good luck to the crew of hopefuls on this thread.

Yeah it's white and says "Stanford Law School" in small letters on the chest. It has "SLS" on one sleeve and nothing on the back.

I got the complete email on 10/2 (submitted 9/23).

I used my generic PS but changed the font to size 11 to give myself more space to include a pretty lengthy "Why Stanford" paragraph.

Good luck to everyone waiting as well, pending my Dec LSAT score I'll either be waiting with you or holding off until 2011 but SLS is far and away my #1.

Thank you and good luck!

While the airfare and airport rides don't apply to me (I live in SF), the rest of that is awesome.
