If you applied to Stanford via Early Action have you already gotten the email with the decision?
All applicants who applied via Early Action were supposed to receive an email with the decision today, and I haven't been able to log into my account all day and am going insane. I'm just wondering what time you received the email. I know the admissions office won't be able to give any information regarding the decisions until Thursday, so I don't know what else to do at this point but sit tight and wait for my school to fix their system so I can retrieve my email. Sorry this is so verbose, I'm just freaking out. I hope if you applied you got an email informing you of your acceptance and are now doing a happy dance. : ) Update: Each of your encouraging answers brought a smile to my face, so many thanks to you all. I was finally able to access my email about an hour ago after being on pins and needles for a full day wondering about the decision. I WAS ACCEPTED! : )See Answer 10 Add Answers
Skylark, you little genius,
I have several good friends with graduate degrees from Stanford, as well as a lot of friends from top Ivys and sister schools. All superior people, on many levels, but none have close to the ultra-impressive Multi-talents in art and vocal and instrumental music that you display on SkylarkMelody.
That fantastic artistic ability along with the perseverance, intelligence, creativity, cleverness and depth of understanding you show on Yahoo Answers tells me that Stanford or Ruskin/Oxford should be more concerned about getting you as a student than you should be anxious about receiving their early acceptance notification.
Relax, and have a good time at whatever top-notch school is lucky enough to recruit you and someday proudly display your name as an honored alumni.
Good Luck in whatever you decide to do, and where ever you decide to go.
Believe me.You are a rare gift.
A SUPER BIG CONGRATS IS DUE HERE ...
THEY ARE THE TRULY THE LUCKIEST ONES IN THIS SCENARIO.
TONIGHT THE CARDINAL ADMINISTRATION IS DOING THE HUGEST HAPPY DANCE THEY HAVE EVER DONE. THE DEAN IS DOING CARTWHEELS. THE PRESIDENT IS DOING HANDSTANDS AND THE FACULTY ARE DOING FLIPS.
THEY REALIZE THAT YOU ARE TO THEIR ART PROGRAM WHAT TIGER WAS TO THEIR GOLF TEAM.
SKYLARK, YOU ARE THE VERY BEST OF THE 689!
Sky you are the kind of girl who uses SAT words like "verbose" (what does that even mean?) all the time. I'm not lying when I say ur the smartest girl i know and from your comments on your Facebook it seems like everybody at your school thinks that to. Didnt u just win a HUGE scholarship or something that everybody was congradulating you for? Obvie your really really smart and Sports is right that your sooooooooooooooo talented. If you weren't so nice people would hate you coz you have everything, lol. Stanford would be insane to 2 accept you.
Your going to get in!!!! I just KNOW it.
I'm well past the age of applying for uni, and even back then I wouldn't have even dreamed of going there because there is no way they've have taken me. But you, Sky, would be an asset to any school. I agree with the others here that you are an exceptionally talented and smart girl. I have no idea what that person directly above me was talking about, but you don't "suck" in any way. I was amazed at that poem you just wrote and all your answers so that you are very smart. You aren't just smart for a girl your age - there are people three times your age who aren't nearly as smart as you. My wife came in as I was watching the video you made for your mom and she got all teary eyed. You're a genius and a sweetheart.
If you don't get in to Stanford, then that's their loss but I bet you got in.
CONGRATULATIONS, SKY! I knew you could do it!
It seems to me that I have jumped on your bandwagon right at the perfect time!!!
You are going places Sky...
.to wonderful, magical places - and it is an honor to sit back and watch you as you go along for the ride ...
Like I said....one day you will be famous ~ your talents leave me speechless and in absolute awe.
I think it should be Stanford applying to have you attend their uni!
Best of luck with everything babes....I have no doubt that whatever you do, you will achieve with greatness.
