Even though I understand that only less than a third of invitations have been sent, the wait makes me crazy!


How do you know it's 1/3? Based on the days left to the decision date?

I don't know... I got a feeling that more people have gotten the invites but just didn't report it on the forums... But I'm also hoping you're right!

No. Don't think about it.


Thanks for your response. But why do you say that? Is it applicable even if I have a fairly unique international profile? I plan to apply together with my wife.


International intake happen in Round 1 and Round 2. And with no offense, most applicants to the GSB are self-selected as having unique profiles. And applying with your wife would not help either, because you are going to take two spots out of an already extremely limited intake. R3 intake happens domestically also for visa reasons. You will not have enough time to settle down everything. So instead of wasting your chance on a R3 this year, think about R1 for the next year--if you are really serious about GSB. Because if you failed this year in R3 and apply for R1 the next admission cycle, they will treat your application as a reapplication. They won't care which round you didn't it, and that won't help you. So, think carefully before you make that application, and don't spoil your chance on a R3 app.


OK I'm sure you intentions are good, but there is a lot of misinformation in this post. It's important not to simply repeat 'conventional forum wisdom' as if it is true, when it has been directly contradicted by statements from the school.

- most applicants to the GSB are self-selected as having unique profiles
What does this mean? You still have to apply and get in. You can't self-select admission.

- International intake happen in Round 1 and Round 2 ... R3 intake happens domestically also for visa reasons.
Says who? Internationals can and do get in in R3 - it is not domestics only. Sure, as an international you might have to work fast to get a visa, but I do not believe that the schools make R3 decisions based on this.

- Because if you failed this year in R3 and apply for R1 the next admission cycle, they will treat your application as a reapplication.
Of course they will treat you as a reapplicant, you are one! But you are assuming that this is some sort of kiss of death. Stanford is reapplicant friendly (as in fact are most schools). There are plenty of reapplicants to top schools gaining admissions on these forums.

In fact, what you have said is directly contradicted from Stanford's admissions blog:

"So the real question to ask yourself is when do you want to enroll? If the answer is September 2009, then you should apply now in Round 3. If you’re admitted, great. If not, then you’re in a better position for September 2010 having already begun the self-reflection process for your first-round application."
- http://www.stanford.edu/group/mba/blog/ ... und_3.html

Long story short, if you have a competitive profile apply. If you don't get in, you can reapply next year.

Well I think you have to show why your candidacy has improved between two applications. It can take three years or it can take a year it depends on you and your experiences. I think that reapplication if backed up with serious arguments why you are a stronger candidate now can be a positive thing. It shows a dedication to a school and persistence. This process is too complex to have any binary situation.

How did your interview go Cerasi? Any questions you weren't expecting?


I think it went well, although it wasn't what I was expecting overall. I'd prepared for a bunch of behavioral questions, but I think I was only asked two: a success-type story and a failure-type story. The interviewer broke in a lot and took the conversation in a different direction frequently, so I didn't get to tell complete stories. All of the "big" questions were very predictable, but the follow-ups were very pointed and specific--not things I could have prepared for.

We talked a lot about topics that weren't directly related to my experiences or future plans, which I assume was either to see if I seemed like an overall intelligent person, or because the interviewer just liked talking about those things. Unless I've just totally forgotten, I also don't think they ever specifically asked why I wanted to go to Stanford / get an MBA, so I had to work that into various tangents.

Basically, I came away from it feeling like the interviewer just wanted to talk to me and see if I seemed like a normal person who could converse intelligently on a range of topics, including my field of interest.

"Stanford doesnt judge solely by GMAT", but somehow all of the invitees, including in R1, have a score 760 or more. May be there is just correlation between goodness and GMAT, but i do not believe it to be so strong.

Seems I have to resit GMAT for the next year admissions:/



It's too early to give your hope up.
I got invited to interview this morning with the exact same GMAT score as the one you have on your profile.

Not to be picky... but...

2.5 Years consumer goods, 730 gmat.

And I had my interview this morning


Well, you are being picky, judging by dozens profiles on linkedin and poets&quants research.

Good luck!:)

I guess ill just withdraw my application now. It seems Mr. Ahmad Musa from Nigeria wants to give me $100 million.

I wouldn't withdraw it just yet. He offered me the same thing, but in the end he could only send a check for $35,000 and he needed $7,000 of it back to cover sending fees so I deposited the check and sent him the $7k, but he told me he will finish payments by the end of the year. Until we find out if he will pay it all we should still keep our apps in.

This statement from aerien confuses me, why anybody's legacy should benefit them in admission. How does it matter that your uncle or your father being the alumni makes you a better candidate. It's your own personal
Candidacy that should matter. If any school gives undue advantage to any candidate because of their legacy then it's discriminatory and gross injustice to us who have no uncles and father from Stanford to back them up.

Or aunts or mothers? (women have been at GSB since it started)

I am a legacy as well (don't hate me)... the letter the alumni get says that legacy admit rate is twice that of non-legacy, but that said they still do not admit 85-90% of legacies.


Sure, I can accepted that from Columbia...or Harvard maybe. But not from Stanford and its halo of supreme justice. "You can fool all the people some of the time, and some of the people all the time, but you cannot fool all the people all the time."
