I'm a little confused. I just stalked last yrs thread and it seemed there were about 30 or more interview invites for R2. Do we even have 10?

is it possible to get interview invitation or acceptance letter after the decision day?


No. The decision day is the just that. The day you will get a final decision (admit/deny/waitlist).


If so, is it possible to be on the waitlist without an interview? All applicants should have interviews, right?


All admitted applicants should have interviews. Stanford does not interview all applicants. I believe there is a possibility of getting waitlisted without an interview. You'll have to wait until the 28th to see what Stanford decides.

Do you have an idea on how they will inform us?
Is it the same agonizing process of Booth? Or emails notifications?

How fitting, I'm of the same mindset. Sounds like we're meant to be together ;)

So, my fellow libertarian - am I correct in assuming you're libertarian solely based on your opinion on marriage? - shall we discuss our marriage contract? :wink:

I'm not big on labels.. I'm a free thinker :D

Let's do it!

On a side note, does Stanford waitlist non-interviewed applicants? If you withdraw your application prior to decision date, and you reapply, are you a "new" applicant or a reapplicant?

Officially, they do waitlist applicants without interviews. Unofficially, two people have claimed that they were admitted without interviews.

Any word of recent invites? I've been trying to stay optimistic and holding out hope for a last minute interview, but it's getting increasingly difficult with nothing but crickets around here. Only two invites on this forum since their blog post stated invites are still going out. Since it's officially 1 week out, I guess I should shift my prayers to a waitlist spot. 10 years of W/E trying to compile a body of work worthy for Stanford & HBS and not so much as an interview between either...depressing. I just don't understand why schools don't notify candidates early when they decide the candidate won't get an interview instead of this torturous wait. I think every school should follow IMD's example and do a preliminary "do you have a chance" pre-evaluation.

Were these two candidates from the waitlist pool? Or are they just too awesome? :)

Sorry about the silence from HBS and stanford. But I think we can say that there are no more invites going out. From an admissions standpoint it's a little too late. But I do have a theory that they wait list some people that they couldn't interview in time for the deadline. Hopefully you hear some positive news soon.
