Stanford RD 2018 Discussions' Thread

<p>i got wiped out today, lol.
just hanging on to a small stanford chance. most of the people that make one HYPSM seem to get crossed admitted to at least three of them. </p>

<p>My D also got 6 rejections today. Her hopes are now down to Stanford, USC and Vanderbilt. Good Luck…</p>

<p>It sucks, because we all probably are well-qualified applicants. It really is unbelievable how competitive this whole college thing is.</p>

<p>Just got rejected from Harvard, Princeton, Yale, and Berkeley, and waitlisted at Cornell, Columbia, and Penn. I have a 2380/800 Math 2/800 Physics/770 Lit/4.44 GPA full IB with strong honors and extracurriculars, so really unsure of what happened. Stanford is the last school I hear back from. I’m just so worried now.</p>

<p>@stephenmills
I hope you applied to some safety schools/ Did you apply to Berkeley and Cornell as an Eng’g major?</p>

<p>Waitlisted at Princeton/Brown/Berkeley today. Rejected at Harvard lol</p>

<p>My D got accepted to Cornell and Berkeley. Rejected at HYP. WL at UPenn. She’s not expeecting anything from Stanford. She might attend UCLA since we’re not qualified for any aid from Cornell.</p>

<p>Not giving up on Stanford lol. Though I realize, it’s literally the toughtest school to get into. Best not to invest too much in it though.</p>

<p>But I’m happy, this proccess is almost done, I almost know where I’m going</p>

<p>I’m taking my non-acceptances as good omens, since Stanford does look for something different. :wink: lololol</p>

<p>@Lilliana330 Haha, yo tambien.</p>

<p>@Lilliana330: I really want to believe that, but my inner skeptic tells me that it’s gonna end up the same. At least the whole college admissions process is almost done because the last few days have been soul-sucking.</p>

<p>@yangmaster Well, all we can do is wait & see :confused: And yes, glad it’s over!</p>

<p>When does Stanford come out?</p>

<p>Decisions start releasing same as today, but not immediately. You just have to wait on the e-mail.</p>

<p>Got rejected by Duke and Berkeley… Though I have UChicago, Stanford has always been my No.1 Dream School :x </p>

<p>@chemicaholic Uchicago is the perfect school. I would die to be taken off the wait list. So even if Stanford doesn’t work… Please be somewhat happy :slight_smile: </p>

<p>Less than 8 hours to go!</p>

<p>Legacy at Stanford, accepted to Yale and Columbia, but rejected by Cornell, Penn, and Dartmouth. I just got my acceptance packet for Haverford, so Stanford is the last school I’ll here back from. I honestly have zero expectations – I had none yesterday, which made the acceptances so much better.</p>

<p>Acceptance rate is <5% apparently because of increase in number of applicants. I’ve basically already been denied.</p>

<p>@davelee1054: I think it’s safe to assume that in order to mitigate any disappointment.</p>
