I look forward to seeing Stanford's enrollment numbers this year. What are their impossible (caprcious?) standards?

Two patterns:

Emails = Strong numbers?

Snail Mail = Geography.  Closer to NYC = Higher chance of getting the acceptance package.

I don't necessarily think that the emails have been targeted to those with "high numbers." I think most letters have been sent, and more emails will be released within the next day or so.

Wow. I didn't anticipate such strong reactions to my news.

Yeah, well, for obvious reasons I was pulling for you. Lord only knows what's in my mailbox now or what will be in coming days. Very sorry to see you leave the pool, but at least you've got a slew of good options.

I don't suppose you murdered a nun or anything, did you? Because that would be reassuring to me.

LOL...nope, nothing like that. It could have been any number of things, e.g., they didn't like my essay, my school is probably considered mediocre at best, my major was easy (by relative comparison).

Best of luck with HLS - I hope you receive better news in the coming days.

Anyways, I don't know what went wrong at H, but I am more than happy with my acceeptances thus far, so I'm not too upset about it.

Good luck to all who are still waiting, and thank you to BK for the condolences.

a phone call from the Tobster--the point of which probably shouldn't be to collect significant supplemental info, anyway


But that is what the email about the call said.  He wanted to ask a few questions in order to make a stronger case for whomever with the admissions committee.  That seems like exactly the supplemental info requested in the hold letter.

Edit:  oh my word.  look at this deferral.

*whimper*  as these deferrals are inching closer and closer to my numbers, i am more and more convinced that mine is in the mail.  damnit this sucks!  school just started and i have a thesis to write! i don't have time to write another essay for law school!

I am in the same boat Chombi...most people with my numbers seem to be in already, so I expect a hold or rejection sometime this week. I have some new stuff to send the big H - I just hope they give me the opportunity to do so.
