Congrats to those admitted - I believe we already have around 5 or 6 person here getting the nod.

I guess SLS is passing on me, but will only know for sure at the end of the month, or early April?

Wishing those admitted an excellent time in Palo Alto. Please share your credentials with us if you don't mind.

Stats:
1st in class undergrad
1st in class law school
In the US system GPA would have been a 4.0
Did ok on TOEFL the one time it was taken 110 (but no real practice for it)
Not a native English speaker

Thoughts about SLS
Really excited about SLS. Applied very late to Harvard so may not receive and admissions decision among the first wave. Most likely the only thing that might sway towards Harvard would be a very good scholarship offer.

The Stanford campus is amazing, such a beautiful area. It isn't so congested as Cambridge and Boston are. Not to mention the weather in California is some of the best in the world.

On the downside for both is the cost of living is crazy in both places. So if we are going to spend a lot of money to live there, I'll be happy to avoid dealing with snow in the winter while going to Stanford. :)))

HLS and SLS are both great schools (obviously) but HLS seems a lot more pretentious and a SLS it just seems more relaxed while still being focused.

One thing to note is that SLS is not set in a big city like HLS, NYU and others are. If you want a big city hop on Caltrain and go to San Francisco. Stanford is an easy place to use a bike to get around and as mentioned the weather makes that a great option.

Just a reminder to those whose first choice was to get into SLS, if you don't plan to go to other schools where you were accepted, kindly send a polite letter to those schools informing them of your decision not to attend. Quite likely there are other students here anxiously waiting for an opening at some of those schools.

So far the schools have been very gracious when declining their offers. Some even were willing to increase their very generous previous offers of scholarships.

Hopefully everyone will get into the best program for them! Good luck to all.

Big congrats to those who've been admitted!!

Did all of you receive the phone call? Anybody receiving an admission without being interviewed?

Thanks for sharing!

I'm interested on your note on sending a polite letter to schools that you do not intend to enroll. Is that the way to do it or just reject their admission through the admitted student page or both?

I would recommend sending a direct not to anyone you had personal contact with or from where you received your admissions notification if it was from a general email address. It never is a bad idea to show you are cultured and have class.

Call last week. I haven't heard of anyone this receiving an admission invitation who didn't get a phone call.


I received an admission offer without a phone call. But I got an offer for the Law, Science and Technology program.

Thanks - a bit comforting but may tend to be false hope for the rest of us who by now have not received any call/email.

I guess those rejected would only know at the end of this month/early April?

Thanks for sharing. I also know somebody who received an offer from CGP on Monday without being interviewed.

I appreciate Harvards approach in this regard, that it announces admissions/rejections at the same time. Waiting under slight/false hope is killing and cruel.

on the other hand, Im assuming that it shouldn't take days for SLS to send 20+ admission letters for CGP, since we did not hear about any admissions yesterday, its quite likely that all offers have been issued by Monday and those who have not received call/admissions yet are out including me...
