Are there even any second calls or are you already out if you didn't get a call for CG&P yet?

To be honest I have some difficulties to understand why they are calling LLM candidates. The only reasons I see so far is that they want to check if you can have a conversation in English (what are your toefl's score?). Every students applying at Stanford are very motivated and in light of the questions they are asking, I don't really see how it can help them to decide whether they have to accept you or not...

Any other Inside information would be most welcome :)

The personal contact makes it slightly more difficult for most (though not all) applicants to decline the offer and pick another school. Asking the applicants a few questions increases the bond to Standford as you have worked 'harder' to get into the school and thus a stronger bond is formed between you and the university.

Additionally, the stronger bond does not only prevent a few students from accepting other offers, but also will enhance the sense of pride of those who got in.

Or it's simply what most interviews are about: Stanford wants to find out if you fit in as a person :p

hi, based on previous year experience, does anyone know when IELBP applicants have the possibility to receive the interview call?

I applied IELBP, and looking forward to updated news on enrollment...

I have the same doubt.

Do we have news about new phone calls?

Nothing here. I assume that the phone calls for the CGP program already finished.

Does anyone know when they stop calling candidates for all programs, and when they start sending acceptance/rejection emails? Would be great to know how many more days we all have to wait.

Apparently, last year's admission email for CG&P went out *today*(28th of February) as per last year discussion. I don't know if this year is going to be the same, but given that the calls have been ~similar, we could expect it by this week or the following, I think (again, for CG&P).

Nope! Hopefully we will be hearing from them before IELBP (according to the order in which programs are presented on the SLS website).

Important information guys: I have just spoken to a friend who is now attending an LLM at SLS and she told me that not all admitted students receive calls... So, don't worry if you did not receive a call, you may still receive an email with an offer! ;)

Many thanks for the info. Do you know the background / reason why some applicants receive calls and others not?
