News from Dean

An Update About the Release of Admission Decisions

December 2, 2009

Restrictive Early Action candidates will be sent their admission decisions on December 15.

Admission officers are currently in final committee selection meetings making decisions on applicants who have applied for admission through our Restrictive Early Action program. Decisions will be released by way of email on December 15th, sometime after 3pm (Pacific Time). No decisions will be available on any Stanford Web site at any time and decisions will not be provided over the phone. Applicants offered admission will also be mailed a packet of information — including their official admission offer from Dean Richard H. Shaw — on December 15th.

We know this process can be a time-consuming one and we respect all of the hard work you have put into your college applications. On behalf of the admission committee and Dean Shaw, we wish our applicants (and those planning to apply for admission through our Regular Decision round) a wonderful holiday season.

Regards,

Shawn

Shawn L. Abbott
Director of Admission

Add me to the R2 roll - I will officially send in my application once I get my last recommendation :evil:

30/m/US/7 WE (off the beaten path by a good bit though)

Received a 3.5 from a Tier 1 Liberal Arts College (Ranked between 50-75)

Fingers crossed and good luck to all!

Thanks Aenigma! But see, this is what worries me. I've heard (only too late) that AWA can be cracked easily by following certain pre-defined templates. After hearing that, I was in 2 minds whether to re-take the GMAT just for the sake of a better AWA. Although I didn't go for it, I feel really bad for having such a low percentile just because I didn't know about a 'template' I could have followed :-(


I'm really glad you didn't retake the GMAT for a better AWA. With a score like yours it's not even remotely worth it. I'm positive that a 4.5 on the AWA per se will not keep you out of any school. Be proud of your great performance and focus on the things that really matter.


Hey thanks again! I guess I'll just have to wait it out and see if the schools agree :P



Templates don't really matter with AWA. I got a 5.5 and never looked at an AWA problem or template before the test. Also, I heard that if you just write half way decent (4+) they don't really care about it. Good Luck.

Another set of questions, this one regarding the interview:

. was the interview arranged through an online system?
. was it possible to select different locations (eg: campus vs home)?
. was the scheduling flexible? I read somewhere that one has 10 days to schedule the interview; I also wonder what is the latest it could be scheduled for.

I'm located in Buenos Aires, Argentina. I travel extensively, and have a hectic schedule. So I don't know if for me it would be best to have the interview in Buenos Aires, or in Stanford, or maybe in New York. This is not a minor issue.

If I'm in the wrong thread, please do let me know.


1) No. You receive an email with the contact info of the local alum that will be interviewing you.
2) No. The vast majority of interviews are done by alumni around the world. Some people will interview with admissions officers on campus, but it seems like that's mostly for locals, and still a minority of them. Either way, you don't have a choice here.
3) Last year it was 2 weeks.. though i've also heard that this year it's 10 days. You also get contact info for the person to sets up all the interviews and you can work with her to find mutually agreeable solution. If you're traveling a lot, it could be possible to conduct the interview in a remote location... but in all likelihood it'll be in buenos aires.

I am a little freaked out though...I live in NY, so it would be very easy to have an alum meet with me...but instead they want me to come ON CAMPUS to meet with an admission officer, in person. They are giving me a month to make the trip. Seems unusual, doesn't it?

Don't be freaked out! You're right - it seems unusual, but I think that meeting with an admissions officer is a wonderful opportunity to showcase yourself to adcom! From what I've read and from what you've probably read too, alumni interviews are blind (e.g. they only have your resume as background), but because you are meeting with adcom, your interview may not be blind. Keep that in mind as you prepare...

Good luck and congratulations! I think if anything, it's a wonderful sign!

PS - moderator, please add me to the roll call - R2 / F 28 / 3.6 GPA / 700 GMAT / 4 yrs WE: 2 yrs financial advisory, 2 yrs corporate development at an apparel retailer / so-so ECs / LT goal in retail strategy

I would assume that there's a pretty decent history of NY-based applicants choosing HBS over Stanford. They probably want to test your commitment to Stanford and the West Coast (especially if you get invited to interview at HBS also).

Does anyone know the rationale behind Stanford's "trickle" approach to releasing interview invites? Or is there actually a "flood" of invites out there right now that I am just not aware of?


I could be wrong, but i feel lo-pro and mystery are part of the brand and a way to differentiate the school from louder business factories like HBS.
