dls without anything else is unfortunately an r
When did y’all get your status checkers?
I applied a few days before the deadline and haven’t received a status checker. I don’t know if this is a good or bad sign. I’m guessing that because I’m below both means that they didn’t review my application right away. Maybe held onto it because I’m URM NA. It’s kinda driving me nuts and I think I should start mentally committing to my lower T-14 acceptance
just email them and ask for it
Thank you. Is the Lawhub status checker accurate?
i'm sorry, i couldn't say. not familiar with it and haven't used it
just checked it and no, it's not accurate, at least for me.
I appreciate it. Mine updated a fews days ago saying that I’ve been submitted for review. A little frustrating.
I sent a nice email, hopefully it doesn’t impact anything. But who knows.
i doubt it. i sent one too and got in :)
Has anyone gotten off waitlist?
@AnxiousExistence: sorry I don’t know. I have Stanfords phd offer too so I entered the housing lottery before deadline and before I knew I was admitted
@LushEasyGibbon: I'm still on the waitlist. I've been scrolling here and Reddit, and I haven't heard of anybody get off the WL yet
WL usually doesnt move until mid/late June
y'all think there will be more sls WL movement in july?
theres no way
Why not?
very small class size + looking at past cycles it seems they just accept few ppl in June and move on, but who knows
SLS sometimes takes ppl in August but I'm just managing expectations u know
has there been movement this year?
I haven't seen anything?!
i just got accepted to SLS off the waitlist!!! (july 11)
congrats!! look forward to seeing you in the fall :)
Hi did you just get a call from SLS
and no email>
@AnxiousExistence: what did you mean by package? thanks in advance!
yes I got a call and after I sent an email accepting they sent me an official letter and forms
Still holding out on the Stanford waitlist... not 0% chance I suppose?!
