It seems that at least a part of Columbia's offers (in addition to those made in the course of the fast-track application process) are out. Yesterday, I received mine. I'll keep my thumbs crossed for all applicants who are still waiting...

I haven't heard anything from Harvard, and in accordance with what they say in the application instructions, don't expect to until late March when they communicate most of their decisions.

I am quite an unusual applicant. Mid-career professional working for an IO, already holding an LLM from NYU, and with an interest in academia. Not sure that will be of any guidance to others...

I applied to Yale, Harvard, Stanford, and two other universities. Stanford SPILS and Yale informed me yesterday that I am accepted to both. No result from Harvard.

I am actually Chinese. I applied everything from within China. I received the completion email from Stanford in late January, I believe. They did call me and asked me a bunch of questions. That was last Saturday morning, while I was asleep. Then yesterday they emailed me saying I am accepted.
I received my Yale phone call of admission last night (Chinese time, of course). Yale did not interview me.

Many congratulations to all admitted to Stanford! So, SPILS decisions are out, any news on the Corporate Governance & Practice program?
