They are not necessary for admission. They may give you some boost if the professor who writes the targeted letter is familiar with or has some kind of link to Stanford's program, but not many applicants can get that kind of letter. Plenty of people get in without it. I don't think it's a make or break component of the application.

How much does applying earlier matter at Stanford? I didn't get the sense from reading about Stanford that early applications were emphasized that much...do you think it's too late to apply with long-shot numbers (3.82/173)? LSP has me as strong consider but looking at LSN I am skeptical of that.

Stanford, along with Yale and Berkeley, is among the most holistic of the top law schools. Your softs will matter. If you have interesting softs, you definitely have a chance with your numbers.

And I doubt that Stanford looks much more favorably on early applications. Any effect, if it exists at all, is slight. It shouldn't deter you from applying.

I submitted in Nov. but never got the complete email. Called a few weeks ago and they told me my app. is complete and under review so I guess some emails do get lost.

Last year there was a large-ish group (10+ on LSN) who were admitted the 16th and 17th. I'd bet the beginning of next week brings more calls.

Lucille was suffering from a hangover-related headache and sought her medication. That's when she mistook the the red-eye alcohol warning for a winking-eye alcohol suggestion.

turns out they sent it a few days ago, but it landed in my spam folder (along with my Berkeley acceptance!). strange.

Why isn't there more Stanford appreciation here on TLS? I see H vs. Y all the time. The TLS review made me really hopeful of getting in :D

Later this week, I predict.

Last year, Stanford released a large batch of decisions--well, large by Stanford standards--on January 16, which was a Friday.
