Out of curiosity, does the online status change?

Thanks guys! The status does not change and the email is pretty simple. It gives me the alumni with who I will interview.

I will add that the email says that the majority of people interviewed will not be offered admission. I was pretty disappointed after reading that. I thought it was 50/50 for Stanford. I guess not.

Their website says they're aiming to interview 800-1000 people this year. So if you loosely just assume a class size of 400, they could feasibly reject ~60% of their interviewees.

Of course, I'd take the 40% accept rate over the 6% accept rate anyday... :wink:

Also, because stanford has an 80% yield, they need to admit around 450 for a class size of around 360.

Given the 800-1200 (1200, not 1000... at least in the email sent out after hitting submit on the application) number of interviews: Best case scenario is 56%, worst case scenario is 38%.

thx! Beyond his GMAT score, not sure what his profile is like, but my gmat is a little lower, and my gpa is definitely a lot lower... but i have really excellent, unique work experience.

No reason to give up yet... from admissions 411, the BW boards, and here... it really doesn't sound like many interview invites have gone out. I wasn't going to even start worrying until the end of next week.

Good luck!

egy, do you know of any invite released to international applicants yet?

Kudos on the interview invite (2/2!) to you and msday86, and please share your profile, especially your work experience!

Good luck, I hope you both get in come January.
