    I also wish y'all that applied to Stanford an acceptance. Let's keep hoping for the best!

    I keep psyching myself out. "My essays weren't good enough", "But I have a good hook", "But I don't have good enough test scores", "But they'll like my references". Is anyone else experiencing this? I just want the wait to be over.

    ^ Me too! I feel like I have enough hooks for it to be a 50/50, but that's most likely not realistic... :-S

    Good luck to everyone!

    @burtmacklin, I'm guessing you watch Parks and Rec?

    And yeah, I go from times where I think that I might have come off really well to times where I think that I came off horrendously.

    @jessecoleman I'm thinking the same! I sent them an update on March 1, thinking that somehow it would help. My stats aren't great and I have a few hooks and awesome recommendations but with acceptance rates so low there is no way to predict who's gonna get accepted. The top kid in my school got rejected from MIT and he had the grades, the EC's, and the recs albeit no hooks.

    My Cal Grant award shows Stanford as my "school of attendance." There's no option for students to select a 1st choice, the site's doing this by itself.

    Trying to not read too much into this...

    @lucyplayspiano The official date is April 1st. However, Stanford always releases decisions the Friday before. Sooo it's confirmed, just not on paper.
