Harvard was at ~10% I believe, Stanford at ~6-7%, Wharton at ~12-13%
Not entirely sure, need to double check

hey guys, you're NOT dinged until you get that DING letter (which I burned :P). Keep your heads up!

sudden, wow, very best of luck to you, you applied to tough schools in a tough year, but I'm still hoping you'll get into one of those (especially Stanford!)

elha, dude, you have an amazing profile, and if Stanford dings you, again, it's their loss (you might not feel that way now, and I know that feeling, but eventually, you should come to realize Wharton is a great school to get into and that Stanford is just too picky for their own good). As for reapplying, to be brutally honest with you, I think it's silly. Next year all the admissions directors I spoke with (2 of them) said the application volume will go up again, and Stanford is probably already at 6-7% this year, and HBS will only drop. I don't know how much either likes reapplicants, especially if the applicants haven't done something amazingly new from now till R1 deadlines (you only have 6 months to save a country :wink:). You have Wharton in your pocket, and it's in the coveted H/S/W triad (even if it's always third), you'll never have a problem with most places you go to in the future.

But yeah, all this is moot when you get your call from DB, so don't worry! :) In the off-chance that you don't, we'll have to smack some sense into you if you drop Wharton to reapply. :P

I was a stanford undergrad but wanted to throw our how jealous I am that some of you may be in Palo Alto this year!!!

Don't know if you'd heard but the MBAs have a club called FOAM (friend of archie miller) and alumni donate to it. The funding is used as a bar tab and the club usually invites KKGs (my sorority) to hang out with them. Tons of fun.

good luck all!

"It is a 'waitlist' letter." Don't lie to me Stanford, it's a ding. You know it, I know it. Good game.

Come on, we knew that already, 30, Banking, have never swum across the Atlantic and didn't receive the interview invitation. Anyway, it was fun to be there.

I'm sorry to hear that you got WL. Not that there's no chance, but it would be nice to have closure if that is how it is going to end up.

I've been skimming, and I noticed that you are 50/50 on applying next year to hold out for Stanford? Why, may I ask? Is there something about your goals and fit that makes Stanford imperative?

EDIT: I read another thread, and I see your reasoning. Although Wharton is Wharton, I can see how it would not be as exciting to go back to the school you went to for undergrad. Seriously, applying next year might not be a bad idea. However, I suggest that you leave Wharton off of your list. Rule of thumb for applications: make sure that the last school on your list is still a school that you would attend if admitted to nowhere else.

Wow .. that's insane. 1 in 40! I am glad I didn't apply to Stan. I am surprised I am saying this, because I consider myself one of those guys who encourage dreaming big. But it appears that the probability of an admit at Stan is just too low for the amount of time that Stan app needs. Unless you are absolutely hell-bent for a Stan admit, you are better off using that time to prepare apps for other top schools of your liking.

Those of you who got waitlisted, you guys have done a great job. Kudos! And all the best for getting off the list. To those who got dinged, well, no harm done, right?

terry12, feel blessed yet?

My initial reaction was to save myself the pain and reject the waitlist offer, but sadly, I can't. I am in. Good luck to everyone else that decides to tough it out on the waitlist as well.

Won't be posting here for a while at least -- too painful. I want to thank everyone that has contributed to this thread and GMATClub in general. terry12 specifically has been an amazing help. Enjoy your time at Stanford, terry!

Okay, off to start a drinking problem... :shock:
