Good luck!

Not to douse your enthusiasm, but I have heard that they don't release most of their decisions until January.

They release a very small batch right smack in the middle of December. Admits only. God, I would KILL to be in that batch. I'm going to Vegas with a bunch of guys on 12/18 and a Stanford acceptance would make that weekend something to (not) remember.

I know. But they sent one of their batches of decisions out last year in December, so I'm holding out hope!

That would be very nice. Harvard for Thanksgiving, Stanford for Christmas would be a lovely pair of presents.

If all goes well, we can shoot for the Triple Crown (Yale) in the spring! Your numbers are sensational, by the way, especially in a solid undergrad program like WUSTL. I assume that you only applied to Alabama for the Itunes.

Thank you! And you're absolutely right about Alabama. Application fee waived, $20 on iTunes, why not?

I thought about doing that and then right before hitting submit I remembered that still had to pay $12 for the law school report.

Did many of you submit the Stanford "diversity" essay?

*big sigh of relief* Stop scaring me, friend! :P

No, I didn't submit the optional diversity statement. Since I don't exactly offer the type of diversity that they're targeting with that essay, I thought that it was better not to write it than to write an unconvincing statement that implicitly illustrated just how little I have to offer in that regard.

I have much more confidence in my stats than my softs. If a LS isn't convinced by the hard data that I have to present, I don't think that we were probably made for each other in the first place.

agreed, i wrote a pretty weak DS for penn and mich, but didn't think it was good enough to warrant sending it on to stanford. figured if they didn't like my softs/writing i was probably screwed anyway.

I'm 99.9% sure Stanford picks their class at random from 168+ / 3.8+ applicants

Hmm, I thought that you'd learned your lesson regarding prognostications. Wait for the first 167 acceptance. 8)

Okay, so that was hyperbole. But really--I thought they were just GPA and soft heavy. But in comes bgc, who has amazing softs and a 3.9 / 179, flat out rejection from Stanford.

I don't know. Very strange admissions patterns.

Yes, bgc scared me a bit. Perhaps he embezzled public funds or concluded his PS with a paragraph on why he wanted to go to Berkeley.

He probably didn't even send in a PS, just the image that was on all the "Fuck Stanford" t-shirts of the Berkeley Bear screwing the Cardinal.
