Does anyone know when dings start going out (based on stats from last year round 3), or has anyone received one? Eeeeeek


From the application deadline page, it says applicants will be notified on the 19th. I can see them calling admits earlier, but I'd be surprised if the mass ding email doesn't go out on that day.

qaum, what was your impression of the interview? Pretty standard?

someone i know was called by DB on march 30th which is the night before decision notification day, so i assume DB will call people on the 18th then to maximize the agony of waiting :)

my interview was enjoyable... although there were standard questions... the majority of the time we kept it fairly informal and talked openly about the GSB experience... The discussion went longer than 2 hours even though we had originally budgeted only 45 minutes...

I was asked several questions such as my personal interests, times i have gone above and beyond the call of duty, etc

when the tables were turned, I asked a lot of questions around how he changed as a person, moments that made him think, inspiring people he met, the most interesting class he took, family life at GSB...

i think the scripted questions were just to sort of get some insights and create an opportunity for interesting conversations, i didn't get the sense that he was taking detailed notes and writing them down to communicate back to the AdCom

I stuttered a lot in my interview, i think, because i was really trying to think about the question and give honest answers, rather than say whatever was at the top of my head...

I feel like I could have come across more "planned" - but I think the quality of the ultimate answers (as i literally spent time talking about how i was thinking about the question) I provided made up for the weakness in structured communication...

i was really impressed with the interviewer and his background. he spoke multiple languages, grew up in several parts of the country, and had been overseas many times, and rotated around several start-ups.

anyways everything i have heard (including interviewer himself) said that iv does not matter much at all - lots of people get interviews but are then not offered admission - so basically that means i may have made it past the first cut of applicants - but i still only have a limited chance of getting in

from some of the various blog insights, only 40 interviews go out in round 3 in the first place... roughly 20 get in that are not on the waitlist already (i am unsure what % of the interviews are pure r3 apps or wait list apps)...

so i guess from the best available data i have, it is basically a 50/50 shot for me... :)

given my terrible stats all around... i am not gonna hold out too much hope... but if it happens i will be extremely extremely happy!!! of course i appreciate stanford at least giving me some lingering hope...

i will keep everyone in the forum updated...

cheers!

ha ha. biggus and i had a strategy session about this in palo alto. since at the moment we have like negative influence over DB, our conclusion was to work on scaring away the dual H/S admits who were clearly more H in personality. in exchange for our services, you have to keep that crazy ring tone on your phone from that night tho until you get the call. :-)

It's the final countdown, wish us luck!

thank you buddy! i am still sending you very positive vibes! maybe i should set my ring tone to the same as yours and we can synergize or something :P

i am truly blessed by this opportunity and feel extremely humbled just looking at some of the incredible people in this forum and amazing people outside of it that applied and did not even get interviews

thank you again everyone, and i hope to be back here this fall helping all of you with your applications. God bless all of you!
