@nygiants, as far as we can tell somewhere between Dec. 7th and the 15th. They say 15th at the latest, but they almost always do it earlier. Because the 15th is a Saturday, they might do it the closest Friday, ie the 14th. However, they might do it the Friday before that, which would be the 7th. In last years they have done it on the 9th, so that's also possible. However, last year I think they did it on Tuesday the 12th! So basically, like I said, pretty much anywhere from the 7th to the 15th. I also heard it will be after 3:30 PM on whatever day they choose.
(Of course, this is all talking about the decision email; a physical acceptance letter will be sent on the 15th to those who got in. If rejected, there is no physical letter.)
@PittFan04, How does your state association work? We hold events throughout the year, such as weeklong summer workshops, weekend retreats, two state conferences and a leadership day at the local amusement park. We have a state board with 6 kids and 5 adults, and its extremely awesome to be involved in. I wouldn't be the same without it
@chewey56 mine is very similar! We have 7 student reps and 7 adult reps plus specialized positions. We host an annual leadership conference, summer workshops, and a student summit in addition to regional conferences. Getting involved was definitely one of the best decisions of my life. I'm glad that you feel the same!
This is worrying me quite a bit, as neither of my teachers have sent in their letter of recs. Would you guys happen to know if I am REQUIRED to fax it at this point in time? Or is electronic submission via the Common App still acceptable?
Is it true that in the recent past Stanford's acceptance pool has a higher % of hook candidates (urm's, donors, legacies, profs' kids etc) than earlier? I tested this theory and sure enough 4 current students I know fall into the hook category, but are excellent students too. It appears that having a hook and a decent academic record (that most admits do) pretty much guarantees you acceptance. I would be curious to know what % of current students had hooks?
I guess I have a hook... I am a legacy in the form of my great-uncle, who was a well-known football player for Stanford and in the NFL. However, because he's not a direct relative (ie parent, grandparent, sibling) I'm not sure how much help that will be.
In addition, I am a student at the Stanford University Online High School, and I'm hoping that will help me because the Stanford admissions officers are well-acquainted with my high school.
