    Ah, has anyone else been stressing out in the last few days? This past month I've been pretty much putting it at the side, being aware that our chances are low to none, but within the last two or three days I've been thinking about it a lot (too much for sure; my dream last night was about it).

    I'm not too worried. I guess I'm just interested in seeing how it will all turnout, but I do agree with you, this year it doesn't seem like Stanford will pull many if any from the wait list. I'm pretty occupied with activities, so that might be a stress reliever.

    So, out of curiosity, where did you guys/gals submit your deposit money? For me, it's UC Berkeley.
  • LeidolonLeidolon Registered User Posts: 37 Junior Member
    I submitted mine at the University of Minnesota - Twin Cities.

    When the university in question is STANFORD, almost everyone would be excited!

    Hello everybody!!!
  • ThemustThemust Registered User Posts: 95 Junior Member
    Hahaha, agreed. Hello, Harvard17!
  • harvard17harvard17 Registered User Posts: 549 Member
    Hello, with warm wishes and crossed fingers, Themust!

    Will we be informed via email of Stanford's decision to move to the waitlist or will there be a public announcement for the same?
  • ThemustThemust Registered User Posts: 95 Junior Member
    If I'm not mistaken, they will start releasing decisions anytime from May 7 to July 1. It's pretty much like a rolling admissions now. Correct me if I'm wrong.
  • LeidolonLeidolon Registered User Posts: 37 Junior Member
    Looking at last year's admission news, they first announced they were taking students from the waitlist on May 7th, but didn't start sending the emails until May 12th. Other waitlistees were emailed that they were on the extended waitlist, and on May 27th the last round of admitted waitlist students were contacted.

    On a slightly related note: The director of admission Shawn Abbott has just announced he has resigned and it will be effective on May 14th! I hope this doesn't signify/change anything for the waitlist. Here's the article about it.
