Waiting for interview calls...

Any stats about how many people generally apply in R1 ? What % get interview calls and how many of them get admits on an average? Just curious

Cheers!


Any info on the stats??

I too made it to R1!! Wonder how early a submission the Oct 2nd interview invitee did.... :shock: :roll:

From an earlier post on interview potential stats:
romanmissionary wrote:
Last year, adcom sent out between 550-600 invites during R1 (see MBA Admissions blog, Dec 19 2008)... given the above assumptions, we have between 12.9% and 22.6% interview invitation rate for Stanford R1.


As far as admissions rates go, Derrick Bolton stated that at ~800 interviews, Stanford would be able to invite ~60% to attend the school (see Stanford MBA Blog, Mythbusters Archives, 30 November 2007). 60% of 800 is 480 - which then would let us know an approximate yield of Stanford admitted students (if class size is ~380 and admission is 480, the yield percentage would be ~80%).

If we assume that adcom's yield projection is the same (which isn't true - yield increases in rough financial years), then we say that they will invite 480 to attend Stanford this year. Assuming that the acceptance rate is equally interspersed among interviewees regardless of round (so that rounds with more interviews get more acceptances), we would have a 60% acceptance rate at 800 interviews and a 40% acceptance rate at 1200 interviews. Going to the extreme, if Stanford sends 600 R1 interviews and only 800 total, then we would have 360 acceptances R1. That's way too high; I remember reading somewhere (sorry, I'm not sure of the reference) that R1 admits were close to 230 for last year. 230 admits would be much closer to the other extreme - if Stanford does 550 interviews R1 and then does 1200 total. That would end in 220 acceptances - which I think is probably pretty accurate and fits with the 40% of interviewees getting an acceptance.

If we make all those assumptions plus those of the earlier post (some of which are good, some of which may be completely bogus), between 12.9% and 22.6% of R1 applicants get an interview invitation (probably close to 17% - one in every six - is my guess) and 40% of those are accepted - which means that the acceptance rate for R1 would be between 5% and 9%. I would guess ~6.8% - meaning that about 1 in every 15 applicants would be admitted from ~3300 applicants for ~220 admits R1. The numbers may not be completely accurate, especially due to changing yields, but that's my best guess.

Hey,

When did you submit you application? Any idea what the last date for receiving interviews is?

Hi All
Congratulations if you have an interview invite. Good luck with your interview process.
For rest of us, good luck and hope you have some nails left by the time you receive a response.

I have updated the roll call and started updating the status for interview invitees here. If you find that your status is wrong or you are in the wrong round let me know so I can fix it.

Shiva

Its just a system update. It is something that is supposed to happen about 4 weeks after the deadline (see application instructions). At least it means that your application has been printed.

Hi guys,

In response to some of the questions:

I submited a few days before the deadline but I wouldnt worry they are calling for interviews as soon as they review the app, a friend of mine got admited last year and he was called for interview 10 days before the final notification date.

My profile

26 year old, I am an economist from Venezuela. gmat 610 ( frustrated with this score but decided to work very hard on my essays rather than take it again).
- 1 year working in finance, 3 years working in Marketing as a Brand Manager and know I am in the export business.

Good luck to all of you.

Ps: The interview was very relaxed, the interviewer asked a lot about me as a person and future plans... at first we reviewed my resume.
