the first meeting is in the beginning of january, so the people who interviewed before thanksgiving week will probably hear by then. after that it gets hazy, but sometime in january is probably a realistic projection.

For those who interviewed early and are expecting to hear back in January:
Did you have to send in some tax-return or family income information? I remember hearing something on interview day about sending that in...But I'm not sure if they want it before or after the decision is made. Thanks.

They don't need that before the decision is made. They just need it for any need-based financial aid package.

They told us that we would hear the first Thursday or Friday of January. That's next week. I'm freaking out. :eek:

for people who have interviewed -- where did you guys stay? (I dont think they gave us anything for finding a student host, right?) -- any relatively cheap hotels in the area to recommend?

thanks!

i stayed with a friend who lives in the area (and went to grad school there a year ago). the student tour guides told us that they don't advertise a student-host program because they don't like to burden their students with the responsibility of being hosts for half a year. but if you call, they're nice about finding you someone to stay with.

some people also said that hotel california was nice

k thx for the info. i feel its almost better to have no idea when acceptances come out otherwise you get so damn anxious. i remember when i interviewed there, the interview coordinator said that we would get phone calls, but i guess not. i dont know who to believe.

Interesting... I guess they aren't making phone calls this year? That's weird.

how did your interviews go? my faculty interview was with this really nice old guy and he wrote a TON on this little piece of paper. my student interview didn't go all that well. i think it was with a first year and he had never done one before.

i thought that both of my interviews went well. my faculty interviewer didnt write down anything, i dont think (which i hope can be attributed to his interviewing style, rather than what I brought to the table-- he didnt have a piece of paper/pen). but the interview was very long, and at the end he said he really loved my energy and enthusiasm and said i would be a good fit.

my student interviewer was awesome, said that i would be a great fit.

you never know tho... i am anxiously awaiting a response. snail mail here in az wont be for another couple of hours.

That's true. But you would think that at least someone on SDN would have received a call if they were calling...

Has anyone heard anything yet? Or are we probably going to have to wait until the week of the 15th?

I'm betting that there will be calls this week on Thursday. Just a hunch.

Obviously they haven't sent out mailings yet, or someone would have gotten something.

She must have. Even if they went out Saturday, someone would have gotten one by now. Half of Stanford acceptances are people in California.

almost mail time here

I think we'll get calls if we get in, hopefully tomorrow/friday. If something was coming in the mail, it probably would have come already to those living in the bay area.

its been a long week. i think at this point, its safe to say that the admissions lady lied. we would have heard by now if it was sent via snail mail, and i am sure at least one person on SDN would have heard too. hopefully the information about them meeting every thursday is right, and maybe today is the day!

good luck everyone
