I also received the call!!!
I think I did it OK, but still sound too nervous I guess.
My fingers crossed....


Lucky and Blooming,
Congrats! That's mean that you are in the short list of Stanford. Almost all of the LLMs admitted in the past 2 years have been interviewed before receiving the offer.
Could you tell us for which program have you applied (i.e. corporate or IP)? And, if you don't mind, from which country or at least continent are you from?
Thanks in advance and good luck to all of us!

Well as I already said my interview went really poorly. I applied for the corporate program and my application was received on or about December 20, 2007. I'm from Europe. I was surprise cause in the 10 min of the interview they asked a lot of personal question and only 1 about my working experience. Don't worry, I'm sure I'm not gonna get in...

Lucky, I told you again not to be so pessimistic! Try to think positive! The interview is only one of the several admissions criteria. Cross your fingers and wait! We do exactly the same...
When you mentioned "personal questions" did you mean questions with regard to your personal interests etc or something like "why Stanford", your motivation to the program etc? Sorry if becoming a little bit nosy but I am sure you understand the anxiety of all of us while waiting the call! Thank you once more!

To blackbelt and The Counsel,

I applied for the Corporate Program, and I am from Asia. I know at least another fellow from my country who also received the call yesterday though I'm not sure which program he/she was applying for.

Still two weeks' time to go...

I did my LLM in Stanford. You cant be admitted without the interview (it is the only LLM that requires it) and they dont schedule anything, they just call an check if you have a good reaction over pressure.

If you received the call, you have 50% chances of going in. If you go in, they will send you an e-mail. They send all e-mails at the same time and after they start calling usually they release the result in two weeks max.

Hi Gloss!

Thanks for your very helpful post! Any information at this stage is much appreciated!

Sorry to bother you. Do you mind tell us if the 50% is a rough estimation made by yourself or is based on facts or precedents?

Thanks in advance!

To someone interviewed by Stanford faculty staff,

Did they mention when are they going to release the decisions?

Blackbelt:

I discussed the admission process with the coordinator of the LLM in corporate when I was there. This number is based on this conversation, but it is not exact. For the Corporate program they select around 30 students to call, from around 50 that go to the final stage of admission. From these 30 students they call, they offer 15 seats max (I am talking about Corporate). There is no wait list, so either you are in or not.
For the IP, just reduce all the numbers above to half.
The total number of students accepted for the LLM specifically is around 20-23.
No scholarship provided of any sort, just full tuition.

Thank you so much, Gloss!

You mean that SLS does not extend a seat refused by an applicant to any other applicant? Therefore, the number of students actually attending the program depends on the acceptance of the first and unique round of offers?

Now, I understand why people claim SLS LLM to be a such selective program...

All the best!

Yes, unfortunately, they dont extend.
Regarding the "selective", I dont know if people ever thought about that but with only 20-23 seats total it is very probable that a big number of students that are accepted in HLS are not accepted in SLS, because HLS has more than 100 seats. The same rule applies to YLS.
On the other hand, 1 or 2 students per year refuse each of SLS and YLS to go to HLS. In my year just 1 in SLS.

Yes. I got an e-mail this Friday from Stanford saying they will release results very soon. I should be contacting some of the admitted students from my country. Each alumni is encouraged to get in touch with new students from his country to share his experience in Stanford/after Stanford and to build a stronger network.
