Help us make LSD better!
Tell us what's important to you
its normal to have no date change since the day you application was complete?
@kimberlywexlery: in the same boat :(
ik Stanford is very slow and doesn't have a ton of admits right now, but are there really no URMs? Im on mobile so maybe I'm mistaken?
nope I am on a massive monitor and I am not seeing any
I think no date change is normal... which is frustrating. SLS my dream school:/
Not all data points are on LSD, there could be more SLS admits and specifically URM admits than LSD indicates.
Anyone know when the next wave is?
anyone else's change to decision letter sent today?
im sure its an r I just wish they would send an email lmao
@GraniteCountertop: you talking about 02/22?
Where does it say DLS? Under mailings or the status itself?
yes its in my status checker at the top
I meant if it's in the "status" part of the status checker or like its own thing?
its own thing
Anyone else's SLS moved to the top on LawHub?
After moving twice to the top , the top part in red letters still says "Your application for admission to Stanford Law School is now complete. "
Please someone tell me that's a good sign 🥹
Chubby it's happened to me, all it means is they're looking at it
Not a good or bad sign
@ChubbyHesitantArmadillo: its a good sign. (source: you asked someone to tell you that)
got the DLS at the top
looks like they're sending Rs up to late oct
does anyone know why there is almost a floor at 3.9 this cycle? There are very few sub 3.9 As even though their 25th percentile is 3.83... does everyone just have a 3.9 now lol
Guess I'll take my 3.83 elsewhere!! lol pls let me in
@ChubbyHesitantArmadillo: my lawhub moved like two weeks ago, but is the red text new? Didn't notice that it was new but could've been wrong lol
Using a mechanical keyboard and chugging gamer sups while maintaining eye contact to assert dominance and lower the curve
Wrong chat lol
I assume Stanford not moving at all since Dec is a good sign?
Idk man
Honestly, I have no delusion of getting in. I just want to get the rejection mail and hang it on my wall
