DING!

Similar to someone else said, it was expected and therefor not painful at all. It was definitely a long shot, kind of like trying to walk on to the Miami Heat roster. Or LeBron's hairline coming back.

Ding!

According to a Vocaz consultant, my "What matters the most" essay was one of the best essays he had ever read. It seems the adcom did not share his opinion.

Last night, I dreamt that I was admitted to Stanford ! What a bitter taste when I woke up!
Right now, I'm hoping my dream was the reality and I'm currently dreaming... I'm scared to check if the top is still spinning...

Okay, I'm having some trouble with my transcripts. I'm able to acquire copies from all the schools I attended, but here are my issues:

- For one school, although I can access it, I can't get the stupid thing to print entirely from the website. I was stuck having to copy and paste everything into a Word doc. Is this sufficient?
- According to the site, they want a copy of the back of the transcript so that they have the university's transcript key. All of the transcript copies I have come from the schools' websites.

What do I do? Help!

Try print screens or printing to PDF. It might help if you get the copies notarized, just to make it look legit.

The application says - Upload only one copy of the back page, to provide us with your university's transcript key.

The back page of my transcripts are blank. What should i do?

Thank you! I turned mine in at like 3 am EST last night. Fingers crossed. I understand that college seniors have historically had a crappy shot at Stanford (heck, everyone has a crappy shot at Stanford). So not placing too many expectations on the outcome - it is what it is. I just couldn't live without trying, lol. I'm such a sop.

And yay for TBP. We should :) What's your background in?

As a random side note, how do you check your application status? Like, where does it show whether they're reviewing and so on?

In my case, it just says "Congratulations! Your application has been successfully submitted."

It also says Round 3 decisions will be posted on Wednesday, 16 May 2012.

I believe they email directly if they want to do an interview?

And now we wait. :( I hate this. I just want to know either way.
