    Everyone's thought of the "april fools" e-mail. Luckily, it does not happen. As I said earlier, Stanford releases its decisions on the last Friday of the month, usually. This year the decision date could possibly be March 27.

    a friday would make sense - it gives them a reprieve from depressed students and angry parents 'cause they're closed on the weekend lolz.
  • CrystalProphecyCrystalProphecy Registered User Posts: 820 Member
    haha yeah. i would expect a lot of angry calls and setting them out on Friday would be a smart move.

    I can imagine what it'll look like:
    AO: Everyone ready?
    Everyone: Yeah. Go ahead.
    *pushes send button on a billion emails*
    AO: EVERYONE LOCK DOWN AND RUNNNNNN

    ^LOL i can hella see that.
  • ab2013ab2013 Registered User Posts: 1,756 Senior Member
    ^^No way. That takes too much coordinated effort.

    Let's just send in Jack Bauer to force decisions out of Stanford AO. It's much easier and more effective.

    Yeah, tennis and nhs are right on... I think.

    The Friday before makes perfect sense. Angry phone calls are lame. GET OVER IT!
  • nhsharvardnhsharvard Registered User Posts: 1,947 Senior Member
    Carnacki, you're right that angry phone calls are lame, but understand that a rejection from Stanford is painful. The rejections during EA are even called the Stanford slaughter.

    Though, an acceptance (hopefully) from Stanford would be great!

    JACK BAUER!
    Jack Bauer could get into Stanford.

    Dude, I bet it actually is REALLY nervewracking for the dean to finally push the button and send the decisions, not so much because he's afraid of angry parents, but moreso because of the second-guessing: "Did we accept/reject the right people? Will they want to come? What will our yield look like? Can we afford the FinAid for all the impoverished kids we admitted?"

    I mean, that's a helluva job.

    >>What will our yield look like?<<

    I bet this is the question that really keeps admissions deans up at night. I they misjudge and the yield is low the school drops in the all-important rankings. If they misjudge and get a lot higher yield than they planned for, they find themselves in the uncomfortable position of trying to find a place to put hundreds students they don't have dorm space for.

  • ab2013ab2013 Registered User Posts: 1,756 Senior Member
    ^Tony Almeida or Carlos Bernard??? I do kno that Jack Bauer went to UCLA for undergrad and Berkeley for grad ... (ok I'm a 24 die-hard fan I must admit ... season 7 is totally awesome so far even though it's (1) nearly impossible and (2) doesn't make any sense, but hey it's TV, right?)
  • ab2013ab2013 Registered User Posts: 1,756 Senior Member
    (in a much more serious tone than above)

    ^courer:

    Actually Brown had this issue last year, so most colleges will try to be extra careful ... especially Brown.
  • CrystalProphecyCrystalProphecy Registered User Posts: 820 Member
    ^ Agreed. I think Brown had the "basement turned dorm" issue? I feel bad for the freshmen who had to go through several months living in a basement.

    I hate this waiting. I know it's gonna be a rejection, and I kind of want to get it already. Also, I think I saw somewhere about it being 26th or 27th, not sure and I can't remember where I saw it
