Today is Round 1 Deadline Day

It's "deadline day" as we call it around here, the due date for Round 1 applications, but also the kick-off to our admissions reading season. All hands are on deck, answering the phones that are ringing off the hook with last-minute questions, and responding to emails from applicants and recommenders. Years ago, before electronic applications, our office would be besieged with piles of FEDEX packages and applicants walking (sometimes running) in to drop off their paper applications. Although it's quieter now that everything is paperless, there is still an unmistakable buzz in the air. It's the excitement of a new season and the anticipation of reading applications by the amazing people from the world over who want to come to Stanford. We can't wait to get started.
