Stanford 2013/2014


I think they will send decisions next week... I also havent heard from NYU... Is this weird?


I guess, Stanford will have to send its decisions by next week or it will transgress the deadline of April 1.

Also, NYU has been sending its decisions since March 5. I think all the applicants have been notified so far. What ever be their decision (Accept, Wait-List or Reject), they should have notified it by now. I would suggest talk to them and ask!!

How are you guys ranking stanford in terms of your preference?

I assume you guys applied to some other schools, and was wondering how you are weighing your options (hopefully stanford becomes one) - specifically for me, I am bit confused with SLS v Cambridge v CLS (I have decided to opt out of NYU/Penn, in favor of Cambridge i think).

I would appreciate the advice. I am interested in business law, and energy and policy. Entrepreneurial focus and applied to the stanford ELP.

Hi there,

It is subjective, I applied and Stanford is my first preference overall because of my interest in Law Science and Tech. While Berkeley is ranked No.1 in IP - Stanford has a better ranking overall. In general, I have noticed that some of the most exceptional people that I look up to - also seem to have come from Stanford. The exclusivity, smaller class size, the professors in the LST course, the courses offered are several factors that made me choose Stanford.
You should look up these professors, their background, read what they write about, the work that the college is up to etc. You should also look up what alumni from that course are doing in that specific stream.

Also considering the fact that I intend to come back to practice in my home country, brand-recognition also plays a role in securing clientele, building a reputation etc. An average person might recognize Harvard/Stanford but may not recognize/know Berkeley or Columbia.

I'm wondering if Stanford is still making phone calls for corporate governance? If haven't received the phone call, does it mean I've probably been rejected? :(

Hi R,

Thanks for the reply; I share most of your sentiments (class size, alumni, profs in my interest field, location)...

Stanford was also my favourite going into the process -

Good luck, and thanks for the help.

In. From China. Admission email received 30 mins ago. Corporate governance program.

No financial aid will be granted. So far, I have not had sufficient saving to cover the all expenses. Is there anyway we can get any forms help from tthe school?

Congratulations MMX!!! Do you mind sharing if you received a phone call or anything prior to the acceptance e-mail?

Regarding financial aid, I think you should seek some help in your own country. If the school has not granted you any help, I think this would be the only solution.

Had phone interview from Jared Ellias four days ago. He generally asked questions regarding your resume, including what paper you wrote and what are they talking about.

Good luck to everyone.
