Missed the call while in the shower this morning, but just got the email. I'm shaking.

Stats, because I'm the most notorious in asking for them:

Complete 11.11
170
3.89
Softs are on LSN.

I think my cycle's over.

ROFL. I hope to god they have multiple spots for our demographic.

And thanks all! Tintin, to answer your question, yes, I'm pretty positive I'll be at SLS in the fall. It'd probably take Yale to sway me (in part because my family lives in CT).

He was a Stanford UG like me, which could have helped. Also, he had great LORs and softs.

No. The person fudged their LSAT score slightly; in reality, they had a 169.

The acceptance pattern I'm noticing is that those with (relatively) low LSAT #s have excellent softs, and those without excellent softs have high numbers. But that's nothing new for Stanford, which is probably the most holistic of the top schools, save for perhaps Yale and Berkeley.

I was complete in late November. It looks like, with these early calls, that Stanford has made its way through early November. I hope I at least have a chance of hearing from them before Christmas break, but it looks doubtful.

yeah managamy is probably right. stanford sure hasn't been shy at chasing lower lsats (for HYS) and good softs.

Dean Deal came through as a private caller on my caller ID, with no "Stanford" identification. Just a friendly heads-up!

Thanks for the heads up. Yesterday morning, I got a call from the 650 area code on my cell as I was getting dressed. I literally tripped over my pants--I had one leg in and one leg out--as I scrambled to answer the phone. It turned out to be an IT consultant who was fishing for some contracting work. I respectfully, but with what I'm sure was a disappointed tone, informed him that we didn't have any money available to hire him right now.

I got a 650 call yesterday too, but I must admit that I was much, much less polite. 8)

It's the 6-foot Serbian tennis player Ana Ivanovic, doing a golf promotional. She's pretty much my feminine ideal, as I mentioned on the Boalt thread.
