I think they will start doing so 1st week of november. However, unless you are one of the first invitees, this process is the most killing since you are left expecting all the way upto december 1st week.

A good read about Stanford's selectiving while we all wait: http://poetsandquants.com/2011/10/26/st ... pplicants/

“It’s not an important metric in the grand scheme of things,” Bolton told The Stanford Daily. “So when applications are up, that’s fine. When applications are down, that’s fine. My real concern is, what’s the quality of the class? As long as we have 396 really bright, really energized, really thoughtful, really committed students, then we feel good. We don’t define success based on number of applications. We define success based on the quality of the class, and then later, the impact the students have once they go out into the world.”

Another link for passing the time and getting to know the admissions staff. Stanford updated their admissions blog, but it's just stories from their travels and not anything regarding applications or interviews:

Update: No link. I haven't been a member for 5 days, so I can't post links yet. Maybe someone who has been on here a bit longer can pass it along for everyone else.

Agreed! Stanford should definitely take this feedback and try to improve their process. Harvard and Wharton have a narrower window which makes life so much easier!

Read through the portion of last year's thread for Round 1 applicants and it appears the deadline to submit was one week earlier than this year (approx. October 6th) and the first invitations came out the last week of October. It also appears the first interviews last year might have gone to international applicants, although there was debate in the thread if that was actually a pattern or just a byproduct of the small sample size of people posting in the GMAT Club forum. The majority of the invitations came in the middle of November with some members getting invitations to interview as late as the second week of December. It looks like mid-November is when most of the interviews came the in 2009 as well.

If Stanford follows a similar schedule this year, than we should start seeing interview invitations come out next week, but we may have to wait till mid-November for the bulk of the invitations again.

Maybe this year will be completely different, but I thought I'd post this for anyone who is obsessively checking the board or assuming that Stanford will send a big batch next week since their application was due 10 days after Harvard.

Great stuff. It looks like some of us should be hearing back sometime this week or next week then.

Has anyone received an invite? Someone on the beatthegmat MBA Watch feed said they received an invite on Friday at 5 PM EST. Do you think they're really starting to come out already?

well, i doubt that person on MBA watch is lying (i just saw that too), but so far that is the ONLY thing i have seen indicating that invites have started to go out. i think it's going to be a long process! i'm sure people will post either here or on MBA watch as they start getting invited.

Congratulations! Looks like the slow trickle is beginning this week. I think the majority will still come out the middle of November like the last couple of years, but now the excitement can begin.

Care to share your basic profile so the rest of the forum can start obsessively looking for non-existent patterns in small sample sizes?
