Got my ding today!  (Also dated 4/30) It's still unfathomable to me that it takes 5 months to reject someone.  Sadly I am a little flattered...  :)

Nice!  Let us know what they say...

A decision letter was mailed to you 4/30/07.   
The application fee is not refundable.


Haha...I mean I wasn't planning to go there anyway, and I obviously didn't expect the application fee refund.  I was really just doing it to be funny/annoying.  Hopefully if enough people request their fee back, they'll reform their admissions process a little.  Although, I have no idea about the logistics of admitting a couple hundred people from thousands of applications, so maybe I shouldn't complain.

I don't know about the logistics either, but seing as how every other school I applied to has a similar load and was able to give a decision before now... Stanford get your act together!
Just when you thought it was safe to go back in the courthouse.

I was waiting for my letter for a while, and it turns out it was sent to my parent's house and they had it there for a few days. Do you guys have two addresses?

Nope.

Got my waitlist today.  It was date 4/30 but postmarked 5/1!

From their website:

Notification of Acceptance
The law school uses a rolling admissions process, acting upon applications throughout the admissions season as they are completed. However, some applications are held until the committee has reviewed the entire applicant pool. This second review occurs during April, at which time the class will be filled. (A small number of applications will be held for possible use in filling vacancies that may occur during the summer.)

The Office of Admissions will make every effort to send applicants a first response (accept, deny, or wait list) by April 30.
To secure a place in the entering class, applicants accepted for admission must pay a deposit.

Seems to me like they failed to make every effort!
