terry,

I see your point, Stanford must really be unique in every respect. Your insight is really appreciated, thanks.

Stanford Reapplicants [#permalink] New post 28 Nov 2008, 23:14
A lot of school's require an additional essay for re-applicants. I couldn't find one on Stanford's application and I'm afraid I might have missed it somewhere. Does anyone know if Stanford requires a re-applicant essay?

Woah, it looks like Stanford is incredibly difficult to get in. Only one GMATClubber got an interview invite so far? Is this because invites haven't come out in great numbers yet?

Thanks bball. I could see some robust material in many of the sub-fora on this site. That's what got me here. I'll be hanging out on this thread and the Kellogg thread as well.

I wouldn't read much into the few invites that have gone out so far. I'm pretty sure that the vast majority of them have not yet been sent out.

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%.


hey congrats..awesome..mind sharing your profile? are you a big time achiever like msday?? if soo then us poor normal mortals stand no chance at hbs or stanford
