Stanford Rejection-just call!
« on: March 28, 2005, 11:56:15 AM »
Up until a few minutes ago I was under the agony of hope known as Stanford Admission. I just called them and they were kind enough to inform me that, "They will not have a place for me in their class this year." Hey, at least I didn't have to wait for the envelope. Suprisingly candid, yet refreshing!

Give 'em a call if its killing you to know!

I got my rejection letter in the mail on Thursday night while I was working a 30+ hour shift at work.  Good times.

Yup--got my Stanford rejection letter yesterday! It's my first ding, and...actually, I'm not very disappointed. I didn't really fall head over heels with the school when I visited earlier this month and am WAY more excited about some of the choices on the east coast. Anyway, for those who really want to go to Stanford, I can see that it would be difficult, but I'm glad it didn't hurt as much as I thought it would.

I figured that if a rejection was in my future (which it undoubtedly is) I wanted it sooner than later, so I took your advice and just called this morning.  The lady looked me up and said that they still had not reached a decision yet on my file.  She said that they were re-reviewing some applications recently and that I should find out at some point in the next while basically.  I'm not taking her response as good or bad necessarily, just that I'll have to actually wait for the little envelope just like (most) everybody else.

Eliza-- It's the real deal. We've been through this in the Latino thread. :).

As for calling Stanford: I think I'll keep false hope alive for as long as possible, thankyouverymuch.....
