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?

Really sorry it took me so long to reply, been busy with exams, etc. I think kry and mbagal have covered things pretty well. I'd caution you against using the additional info section unless absolutely necessary... clearing up confusion about multiple transcripts or choice of recommenders (not going with current boss, etc.) is fine, but I wouldn't try to add another dimension to your application.

BW forums has reports from a few people that they've gotten interviews in the past week. I'd imagine they're probably done with ~50%. Seems like the interview invites only really ramped up a few weeks ago... and we know they'll need to tail off in a few weeks.

A total guess though. I might as well be a random number generator.

Congrats on getting the app in!! It's a good feeling! :-)

The exec challenge is simply mind blowing. Especially given that it's a new thing (started with the new curric.).. it's particularly impressive that they're able to get so many top alumni from all around the world... it really speaks to how incredibly tight the community is.

You guys totally broke the "yep" chain!! SHame on you both!

ndiaconu: I haven't heard of much activity this week either.. but it's not entirely surprising since Stanford is now on it's winter break. They did say they would continue to send out invites, but that they would be bundled together. It might be that they haven't sent any of those bundles yet. Don't really worry too much though... From years prior, it sounds like plenty of interview invites go out through decision day.

Any Indians out there who've received interview invites yet? Also, does being an Indian applicant and not having applied for the Reliance scholarship put me at a disadvantage?

Hey all -

Derrick Bolton posted an update a few hours ago about where they are on interview invitations:

Quote:
As of mid-week, we have extended around 400 interview invitations to first round candidates. We expect to invite an additional 150-200 applicants to interview in the next few weeks, as we read and evaluate first round applications before the notification deadline of 22 January 2009.

On the January 22 first round notification deadline, we also may ask 50-100 applicants to join the waitlist without having been interviewed, and may interview those candidates later.

I hope this is helpful. Best wishes for the holiday season.
Derrick

Hummm, that's almost 600 interviews for probably not more than 200 admit offers! 35% rate, not good, not good...

yep.... doesn't sound so good. :-/

the other thing that's interesting is that DB had said they would interview between 800-1200 people this year. If they're doing 600 in round 1, what does that mean for the other rounds.

Though it is interesting that they would keep people on non-interviewed applicants on the waitlist. Not sure, I get the move.

Hopefully vacation will keep this out of sight and out of mind until 2009. Then we'll all get to obsess for a few more weeks...
