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.

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

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.

Unfortunately I have no clue on international. Regardless... it really doesn't sound like many have gotten out yet. Plus if you believe them, there's really no logical order to when things go out.

Thanks on the kudos... I'm really excited! I figured i'd just apply to my two top choices this year to see what would happen... I thought I had a chance... but didn't expect this! :-)

On the profile, I don't want to say much until after decisions are released on January 21/22. But basically I have excellent GMAT, so-so grades, and excellent, unique and diverse work experience. I'll be happy to go into more detail, regardless of outcome, come January 22nd.

What do we think? 30% of interview invitations remaining?

Getting anxious. :(

Probably more than 30%, I really think that Stanford evaluates them as they come.

Nice! I am one of the only older applicant (29 at mat) to have received an invite. I find it hard to compete with the younger crowd for HBS and Stanford :shock:

Seems like by mistaking msday86 for falibay (kudos to you too!) I brought him luck!

Now it would be nice to get an invite myself...

Thanks terry12 for the words of comfort, there's also a bit of a psychologist in you.

Stanford is the "handmade" of the admission processes, yet it's tough not to think your app has been already seen, and dissed.

Congrats msday86!! Hope your interview invite translates into an admit. Good luck.

I agree with terry12, and my guess is that the adcom. has read only 30-40% of the apps so far. Those who are still waiting (including myself) still have a good chance. Let's keep our hopes up.
