    @geraniol I read the sentence: "Just make sure you've thought about why you're interested in Stanford" and then remembered my answer to the short answer question "Name one thing you are looking forward to experiencing at Stanford"........... .. ...

    I literally wrote the most basic answer.....ugh....it's fine I'll survive lol. If I say some BS like "It's not the college I go to, it's what I make of the college" to the interviewer....how will that be taken? :'))))

    Did any one receive an email Subject "Diversity at Stanford" from Assistant Dean for Diversity Outreach? Does it mean something for the Stanford applicants who got this email?

    For people who applied for financial aid, is there a specific checklist box in your Stanford portal for FAFSA or CSS?

    @slumbermachine No but there is a checkbox for Stanford on the FAFSA form. Not sure about CSS because I haven't done it yet.

    @cuteraspberries If you told me that during an interview, I'd probably say yes that's very true, but now since we're at a Stanford interview tell me why you want to go to Stanford instead of Cal :)

    Did anyone receive an email from Stanford, the subject is "Diversity at Stanford"?

    Very generic... it starts with " Diversity has been a core value at Stanford...", at the end of the letter, there are links for websites of diversity and inclusion

    I also applied REA. My interview/extracurriculars/grades/test scores/scholarships/awards are pretty good... Also, I have quadruple legacy at Stanford. My dad, grandma, grandpa, and great-grandpa all went there, so I feel like if I get in, it will be because of that only. Stanford said that legacies have a 3x greater chance of getting in, but I find that hard to believe. Does anyone have some input on this?

    It's true about legacies get in at about 40% of the class, Stanford and Princeton et al. To make up for the guilt/privilege, they then accept 18% free lunch kids, a bunch (approx. per their own website states 20%) of first gen, then a bunch of "diversity,"...leaving a very very few for just the regular "good 'ole," exceptional top of the heap kid of any middle class whatever race background...

    @BeCheap4me2
    Legacies make up just under 20% of the Stanford class...still too high, but much less than the 40% you claim. They are admitted at a rate of about 3x that of non legacies, so roughly 14% chance of admission.

    Two questions: if I put "White (Middle East)" on my application, am I part of this "Diversity"? Also, my grandpa and two uncles all went to Stanford, so am I a legacy?

    In past years, hasn't Stanford release their decision a week early??? I'm thinking it will be released on December 7 or 8 this year, but this is definitely based on dates in college decision reactions videos lol

    @cuteraspberries aunts/uncles don't count as legacies. Did you fill out the legacy section of the application?

    The early result is always released on Friday right prior to Dec 15.

    @fritzy00 I did, and I also noted that one uncle and one grandpa were faculty once too.
