very nice, Mikus! Congratulations!

I have added the interview invites status on the first page. Will be good to see the number of invites for Stanford. (TL - hope that's alright with you..)

I think msday86 is 3/3 with H/S/W too, so there are two people that pulled it off this year. Congrats guys, quite impressive.

You need to apply to W and have the tri-fecta to be recognized.

Although if you get admitted to both, I think you'll do what no GMATClubber has ever done before.

If someone gets into H and S, or H/S/W, does that automatically mean 100 kudos and mod status? ;)

It's a tough question... Mainly because I'm trying not to get too excited about all of this working out. That said, it's obviously impossible not to be thinking about it even a little. :-) Based on that low-level background thought going on... which should be heavily caveated... I'm currently leaning towards hbs. Though before my visit last week (wasn't my first time visiting), i was leaning towards stan... The class visit i had at stanford a few months ago was good, but not great. The handful of classes i saw at hbs were all extremely excellent. I think there's a lot about the S program that is far superior to hbs, but there's still something about the history of hbs that is significant.

At the end of the day, I know I would be really happy at both, even if for different reasons.. So i'm not going to really worry too much about this unlikely scenario unless it happens. If it does, I'd obviously attend admit weekends, talk to alumni, etc. to try to figure it out. But frankly, there are worse problems in the world to have. Fingers crossed! :-)

I honestly don't think I'd get into W. I don't think W and I have a good fit.

Getting into both would be sick. Yeah I have to agree on HBS... my class visit was amazing. I was very impressed with the level of discussion that took place.

Would rather not comment on work experience until after decisions go out, one way or another. but it's basically limited in number of years, though excellent in scale, scope and impact.

I'm wondering what to do with the additional info section of the application. It says not to use it for additional essays. Do they just mean don't use it to answer one of the essay topics? I want to use it to discuss some aspect not captured in my applicant essays. Is that kosher?

liubhs02 - I think that depends on what you want to discuss. It is usually appropriate to discuss something that will give the adcom a clearer picture of you. However, as they mention, do not use this as a way to include another essay (from Stanford's list of topics) or even an essay from another school. Someone at the information session asked about how they can talk about course work they have taken that they don't have transcripts for and the adcom asked them to use the additional information section. In my case I chose to use the additional section to discuss some of the job changes I had made since the application section did not provide me enough space to do so in a proper manner. I haven't received an invite - so take this info as you will.

In the four essays allowed, ideally your examples should include all aspects of your life that are important to you, but if there is something else equally important that you want the adcoms to know about, that is relevant to your candidacy and to your post MBA goals, I don't see why you cannot include it in the additional information section. (terry or kry or this year's superstars - please chime in :))
