So if one hasn't received an invite for R3, is it safe to say one has been rejected? :(

I wouldn't necessarily say that. Stanford usually sends out invites in waves, and last year there was a small wave on April 29th and a bigger wave after. So, until May 9th, nothing is certain. If you haven't received an invite by then, then yes, I think it would be safe to say that we've been rejected.

I'm a long time lurker of this forum, a round 3 applicant too.

No news so far. I would go out on a limb to say if there is no news by this weekend then it's all over.

I remain hopeful.

Seems to me there is just one more day for Stanford. Me thinks Monday evening the dance ends, and if I dont hear by then, I am most likely dinged. Living on a prayer

My guess is that all the interview invites for R3 have already gone out. Oh well, hopefully my "magic power" is to create miracles.

I guess that is it from Stanford? Havent heard any activity since Monday, and dont see why they would wait for so long before having another wave... Truly depressing, I think I need a couple more days of mourning to get over the imminent ding

I think that's all, but what did you expect? The chances in round 3 are close to 0!

I just called the Stanford hotline. They said interview invites would be extended through May 15. However, this would seem to conflict with this from the email confirmation: "Invitations for interviews will be sent up until the week prior to the decision date for the round in which you applied." However, as I just laid off I have other issues to contend with at the moment...

What do you mean by hotline rboots? The admissions office? And they said May 15th?! I'm really confused.

No updates, no clarity, the GSB adcom way. Blog filled with random stories.

At this point they might be saying that to stop people from reaching out to them and probably will just send out a few odd invites. Seems there was just one invite wave last monday, so they prolly have been trickling out invites. I just wouldn't understand why GSB would be the only business school that doesnt have its stuff together. It must be one of those years when they got more acceptances than expected in round 2.

Really really wish they were more transparent, but understand at the same time its mighty competitive so time to adjust to reality.

I don't have data on this but I hear Stanford skews younger than some other schools. That being said, if you're a strong applicant, I feel regardless of age you should be able to prove yourself in the application process.

Stanford does skew younger but it's moreso a function of the applicant pool and less an issue of a bias against over 30 applicants. There really aren't that many 30+ applicants to top FT MBA programs. I know several 30+ (non military) people at Stanford.
