Interestingly, some people, whether to console me or because of conviction, blame the application process. That's where I always intervene, because Stanford in particular has been exceedingly friendly throughout, and if my CV or essays aren't good enough, it is nobody's fault but my own.

Dont know if that is true. But it would certainly mean a DING for me. :cry:


Rumors are just that, rumors. If you're invited, you'll get your email. Don't worry about when it comes -- that has no bearing on the ultimate decision.

I got my interview email on Feb. 1, and my last name is in the last 1/4th of the alphabet. So unless you want to start speculating about reverse-alphabetical order, I'd say you're best off believing that it really is random...

Indeed all top US B schools claim they are reapplicants freindly, but I don't think that is really the case. Otherwise they wouldn't ask the question "Have you previously applied and what's the result." Official blog statements are just there to serve PR purposes only. Of course they will always encourage reapplications: it makes schools look better, have larger application volumes therefore lower acceptance rate, and more application fees:-) I just think applicants shouldn't take official statement too seriously sometimes.

From a pure psychological perspective, who wants to override one's own decision in the first place? If you reapply after two or three years, maybe they will give your app a serious look. But if your reapplication is only made less than a year after a ding, don't think that will be the case.

In addition, I have never heard of an admission offer to an Indian student in India in R3. R3 offer to Indian students yes, but already US based.

Just a thought.

Received an invite as well. Came in about 530 ET today (I'm domestic). They're only just starting to pick up. I know current students who got invites as late as March 14 (equivalent), so unfortunately it's just a long waiting game... Best of luck to everyone.

Hey all --

Long time lurker, first time poster. I've been obsessively checking these boards for people's interview invites, refreshing my gmail constantly, and my nails have been bitten down to nothing since February started. I figured I'd post when I got an interview to let everyone know that the invites are still going out. It seems really random to me, not in waves or even on specific days. Got it just now, 7:30pm PST. All of this to say that Stanford really does mean interviews go out until two weeks beforehand, please don't give up hope. And if you can't stop yourself from checking these boards like me, at least try & remind yourself that your chances don't actually go down with time as someone else posted -- you have the same chances you had when you hit the submit button. Keep the faith and everything will turn out as it's supposed to, I know it's SO hard waiting. I wish everyone tons of luck.

Also, I don't have a 700+ GMAT, so to all of those, don't stop believing :) I've noticed that people often want to know stats of interviewees, but I'm not posting them here because I'm paranoid and don't want to do anything to screw up my interview, so if you want to know something, you can PM me.

Got the invite!

It went to my spam folder and has the subject "Free delivery and every day promotions are waiting for those who will take at list few products from our shelves!" Weird spelling error and misleading heading aside, I could NOT be more relieved.

Guys, make sure your email service isn't filtering out messages from "Discount-Canadian-Meds." Other interviewees: Did you have so many choices? Antiobiotics. Pain Killers. Dealing with Depression. Meds for Men. I haven't heard of half of these, but I guess it doesn't matter. Eeeeek. So excited!

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.


Dont Worry!!!

You'll create a legacy for your generations ahead.

People, any tentative dates by which we will hear from GSB?

Hopes are dwindling as time ticks by.


Try and chill a bit. :) It's not even November yet, and I read that they keep sending out interview invites right until a couple of days before the decision date. (Sorry, won't look for the link now, please trust me. :))



Actually I remember an admissions officer saying that as well. They must enjoy reading our comments of turmoil.

To give some perspective to the obsessively anxious among us: look no further than last year's numbers. There were 178 applicants in R1 on gmatclub last year. 22 received invitations to interview. There are 200+ applications this year and only 6 have so far received invitations.

Conclude from this what you will, but I'm betting that there are a good dozen or more interview invites yet to be received among gmatclub folks, not to mention the many dozens for people who don't access or post on these forums. Statistics and probability being what they are, somewhat over 10% of the 200 of us on here should get invites, so let's not jump to conclusions prematurely. The only true conclusion right now is the one that dictates that no one knows anything until D-Day.

December 12th... it's on their web site

As for the anxiety we share - well, i'm a strong believer in doing the best you can on what you can affect, and accept the things you can't.

We've done our best, now we need to wait for it. It will either come, or it won't. :wink:
No use in going a-wall about it.



I completely agree with this comment! Hard to remember this when you constant refresh your inbox hoping for an email, but heads up. You had enough guts to even submit an application!!

From Us News they accepted 466 and from my visit they say the interview 800 to 900 so your chances pretty good man. Good luck


They said they plan on interviewing about 900, but that number often creeps up to 1200 or so. In the interview invite email it clearly says that they reject the majority of applicants they interview and they typically admit around 500 so they would typically be interviewing 1,000+ to keep that true.
The odds are still favorable to those without interviews, but "pretty good" is all relative.

Yeah but even 1/3 chances are better than 6.5/100. Though true, is all relative.
