I called the admission office today and asked how many invitations are being sent per week and the guy told me that it varies. He said this is only the beginning and invitations will continue to trickle out. The impression I got is that only a few invitations have been released far. When I asked him if most of the invites had been sent already, he said not even close. So let's keep our fingers and toes crossed.

Hello all,

Since I see a few thoughts about the interviews, I thought I would share my little experience. I do think that the interview does not weight much in the application, and that schools use it mostly to have a " reality check", but that the decision is almost made before hand.

Now about y Stanford interview. I was one of the very last ones to interview for R2 (10 days before decisions were released), so I did not post earlier. But now it may help R3 or next year applicants....That interview was different from what I expected, and what I had read about. No questions about tell me who you are, why MBA, etc,.... My interviewer started cold with " Why do you want to go to Stanford? "
He had obviously studied my resume thoroughly. Instead of asking the traditional " tell me about a time when you did not meet your objectives" , he asked " I see you did not go to the best engineering school in your country, how did you deal with this failure?" (which wasn't a failure for me, I am very happy with the school I attended....but had to make up something on the spot....)
He then moved on to more personal questions such as:
- " What is our favorite book? Why? What would I (the interviewer) learn that I could not learn anywhere else? Do you know any quotes? (he did know the book AND some quotes"
- Who is your favorite mexican artist ? (I am French but live in Mexico) Why?
- What is your favorite mexican band?

As most Stanford graduate I have met, he was VERY educated and had a LOT of culture about very diverse things. He also obviously took the time to personalize the questions. On my resume I stated that I am fluent in 4 languages, and he happened to be fluent in the exact same ones so we did 25% of the interview in each. Believe me it is a bit troubling to have to tell the stories you want to tell and have rehearsed in english in another language.

Overall, I got the feeling that he asked some of the mandatory questions- I think I remember he had to pick 3 or 4 from a list and then could ask anything he could see fit- just because he had to. But he was way more interested in me as a person, what I enjoy in life, what motivates me, and how I reacted to unexpected questions. We had a completely different background but he did find some small parts of my resume that we have in common, such as languages or music, and really grilled me on these. I don't think he was looking for a flaw, more for a way to get to know me on some common ground. But it was pretty unexpected and pretty destabilizing for me. Try to fit your " big leadership story" as an answer to " who is your favorite trumpet player and why?....."
At the end of the interview he repeated that his feedback did not weight much in the final decision and asked me to keep him informed of the decision. After I told him about the admission, he called me to ask if I had any questions and offered to put e in contact with some alumni from other MBAs in case I had a desicion to make (which I dont, Stanford has always felt like the best fit by far to me :-D )

Hope this will help some of you in the future. Good luck!

Am I making this up, or did the GSB info page used to say: "We expect to interview between 800 and 1,200 applicants this year?" Now it says between 800 and 1,000...wonder if they are scaling back?

http://www.gsb.stanford.edu/mba/admissi ... views.html

From a Derrick Bolton post in 2007:

We've gotten lots of questions from you about exactly how many interviews we conduct.

Since 2002, we have extended between ~950 and ~1200 interview invitations annually. For the 2007 intake, we interviewed ~1,050 candidates. The total varies based on both the number of applications we receive and the quality of those applications.

We've provided a range of 800-1200 because I typically begin the year thinking that we should only interview about 800 (but fail miserably to do so, as you can tell from the previous paragraph). Since you typically use last year's figures to gauge this year's chances, I felt it would be misleading to say 1,100 or 1,200 when there was a chance we'd finish the year at only 800. Hence the range.

Why ~800? There's no magic to that number except that at ~800 interviews, we'd be able to offer admission to ~60% of candidates interviewed. When I talk to our students and alumni, they say it just feels better to know that you are more-likely-than-not to be admitted after the interview. So that's been my aim for the past couple of years. Your applications are so phenomenal, however, that we want to meet far more than 800 of you! And your applications always will determine the ultimate number of interview invitations.

Let me reiterate that the information in my 1 November 2007 post is accurate: we will send many interview invitations in December and even into January. If you haven't received an interview invitation yet, please don't worry. There's plenty of time.

Think of it this way: the period between 22 October 2007 (when applications were due) and 24 January 2008 (when decisions are due) comprises nearly 14 weeks. Subtract two weeks for the interviews to occur and you have 12 weeks. We're just finishing week six of that 12-week period and will be reading files well into 2008. As we read files we will continue to extend interview invitations. Some days we might invite only two or three people to interview, while other days we might invite 20 or 30. No matter when you receive your invitation, it means the same thing: we consider you a very competitive applicant.

Great initiative JordinT!!

I seemed to be in the R2 pool twice. I wish that would double my chances of getting in but since it does not you can remove one
entry. :wink:

I've noticed that you're a re-applicant this year and with very impressive acceptance record this year. How was your outcome for
the other schools you had applied to last year? And what do you think enabled your application to improve so dramatically? (If you don't mind my asking)


Yes... I'd be interested in this too...


hi all, i updated roll call for recent requests.

in terms of my re-applicant status, i only applied to gsb (ding no interview) and kellogg (ding after interview) last year. in terms of what i think changed/helped:
- better essays: last year I was reluctant/shy about letting others read my essays but this year, I had 1-2 people read each essay. Combination of people who know me really well, people who don’t know me as well (what adcom would be), people who have succeeded in the process and just good writers. I think it takes a while to nail the essay formula down and just because of that, my later apps were better. also I tried to make sure that each thing I wrote had a purpose and said something specific about me.
- Better recommender choice/prep: last year 2 of my recommenders didn’t even finish their letters until the night before they were due and I had to help them (while I was still scrambling to finish my own essays). This year, I gave all my interviewers potential examples to use and themes/qualities that I was highlighting in my essays (hoping they would do the same). I think painting a cohesive and consistent picture is important. Also asked a partner that has a top mba to write me a letter which I think helped, since he knows exactly what they are looking for
- others – got a promotion between now and then. applied to more schools!
- Fyi I did use a consultant for one of the schools… the one I didn’t get an interview/or get into. Not sure how worth it they are.

good luck everyone!

HCGirl10: Thanks for that tip! I was wondering how to access the PDF version of the application.

hellopalo: The way I look at it is Q1 = who you are, Q2 = what you want to do, Q3 = what have you done in the past...making Q3 very important. If you go by the recommended word limits, 2 x 300 words is longer than Q2. For me, it's an opportunity to expand on what might just be a bullet point on my resume and talk about why it was important to me.

Re: choices, I don't think there are A-D options that you should force an answer to if you have entrepreneurial aspirations. I say pick the ones resonate with you. I did a quick rough outline for all four and then selected what I felt were the two strongest.


jankynoname: ditto on the info session. I'd been to another Stanford event before so I've heard a lot of the academic structure, etc. but it was great to hear from the alumni panel. It really helped me cement my decision to apply. It also helped me rethink parts of my essays.

Highly recommended for anyone! :)

Just found the forum. It looks like a good place to share information. I applied R1; for me, Stanford is the only thing on the radar.

Did anyone else have a great experience completing the application? I really admire Stanford for encouraging applicants to reflect on their deepest motivations in life... it takes a lot of courage to openly share your thoughts with strangers, especially when something so valuable rides on their judgment of your personal character.

As far as waiting for interview invites and acceptance calls: be optimistic - as long as you are doing what is right in life, everything is a blessing (acceptances, wait-lists, and dings included). Anything to the contrary is either (1) meant to help you identify what you are doing wrong or (2) proof of your lack of perspective.

Good luck to everyone!

@ snowhappy..

That's a great statement and certainly true. I think most people who think they have a shot at Stanford and apply are highly qualified people. Obviously to apply you've succeeded at most things in life. No reason why that trend should stop.

On another note, 5 weeks to go before decision date. For the people who haven't gotten an interview yet, there's plenty of time.

Hey guys!

I just joined and have been reading through your emoticons of pain, and (some) joy! Anyway, since you guys seem to be pretty well-informed on what profiles get in and what profiles don't get in, I wanted to know your thoughts on my unorthodox profile. I'm applying R2.

Graduated in 2006, 3 Yrs of work experience. 27 years old, however. (2 Yrs away from school to do athletics)
GMAT: 690 (will retake)
GPA: 3.42 from Ivy League, Econ major GPA: 3.63
-Olympic Team member, trained full-time while in school (when injured, GPA jumped to 3.93; however, when not injured.......you can do the math)
Working for bulge-braket ibank
Trustee of $60 million foundation
Significant leadership experience in Olympic federation for my sport

Any feedback or application strategies would be awesome guys!

AND best of luck!!!!!!! I'll add a couple happy emoticons to make up for the overwhelmingly sucky ones. :-D :-D :-D


Son,

This thread is currently filled with guys tired after weeks and months of waiting for their interview invites. Don't ask such questions here :D I think you already are aware of your achievements? So go ahead and apply. And pray for us in the meantime.

Just got an invite! I am SO relieved - and SHOCKED because I had written it off at this point. Sounds like they're still coming out though, so don't give up hope!

And yes, the invitation does require you to complete your interview within 10 days of receiving the email, so it all happens quite quickly.

Is it really relevant? Aren't you anyways gonna give your best at the interview? The percentages do not matter. The percentage of accepted after interview can be as high as 90%, but wouldn't be of any use to you if they put you in the other 10%. And what if they accept just 10% and you are one of them?

Just concentrate on your interview and do your best. Let the adcom do the calculations.
