When do you think we will hear from them?


I do not have a clear idea, but I do know, from the earlier posts, that Stanford conducts the phone interviews and selection process program-wise. SPILS candidates are the first to be selected (around last week of February - first week of March) and the Corporate Governance candidates are the last ones (around last week of March - first week of April).

There is one more problem about Stanford that I observed on this Blog and other of the same kind. Since Stanford selects only a handful of students every year, the no. of applications received are also less, as compared to other Law Schools in the US. Therefore, there is paucity of response on forums like these!!

But I would suggest that there is still some time left before the panic button gets pressed. So keep yourself calm, relax and hope for the best.

Best of luck everyone!

Shiny, congrats! :))) Just curious, how long was the talk? did you discuss general topics or you were asked any specific questions related to your personal statement? Thanks!

Well.. I do not think there is something to congratulate yet. But, sincerely, thanks.

The interviewer was quite friendly and did not make difficult questions. He asked about details of my backgrounds and specific cases (or events) mentioned in recommendation letters and my personal statement. As long as you can explain which field of law is most attractive to you and why, the interview itself would not be tough. Actually I enjoyed the conversation. It took about 20 minutes.

The only problem indeed was that I could not expect when I would get the call. It was "Sunday" and I was on my way to the church. Having unexpected (and important) conversation over the phone on crowded street was not a good idea. I think it would have been much better if the applicants could schedule interview first to prepare and take it at appropriate time and in quiet setting.

Please forgive me for not sharing more details including specific nationality and place (whether I am in Japan or other countries). I really do not think it makes any differences as long as one is in 'East Asia.' On the other hand, I'm afraid that it might reveal my identification which I do not want. Sorry.

I also received a call from SLS last Thursday. It was a conversation, rather than an interview. He asked specific questions about my personal statement and then general questions about M&A (I applied for the Corporate Governance & Practice LLM) and the economy in my country (I am from Latin America). It lasted about 15 minutes. In the end, he asked me to be patient because they were still going through the applications and the decisions would be known only by end of March.

Hi,

I applied to the Law Sci Tech programme. I have no hope whatsoever, especially after 2 rejects+1 waitlist.

Next year it is, I guess. Sigh.

I still hope for a stroke of luck which is why I'm checking this forum :D lol.

I, too, applied to the LST program and have not heard anything. I noticed that snoogie was accepted by Harvard (Congrats, snoogie!), which gives me a little hope that they've still not decided.
