Officially giving up hope. Good night all, and congratulations to those fortunate enough to get the call.


I think it is that time for quite a few of us.


What a tough day for some of us. Good vibes to all, I'm thankful for the support. It was a true pleasure.

Yes I did have a change, but it was almost 3 hours before I got the call.

Rough way to end things.. But I'm shocked that no east coaster posted about getting a call! Or am I missing something and they do those calls in the morning eastern time?

Just the one DC applicant that posted earlier. Surprised as well, but the representative pool is pretty small after all.

I am curious how long people spent on their apps. I feel I spent way too long

I am a third time applicant and got interviewed for the first time. I'm just so disappointed in myself right now.. Sigh! Life would have been so different if that call came through.

I spent probably 30 hours (not incl. 5 months of GMAT prep) on Stanford. I actually spent (in retrospect) too little on What matters essay. I spent most of my time on the last two essays. I was not interviewed but I am sure is mostly due to my undergrad GPA, oh well. I spent about the same on HBS and Wharton but was interviewed at both.

those who are still waiting to find out, here's the deal. if your recommender listing on the online app is no longer visible and your app status is now submitted, you're in. Otherwise you are not. except if you are on the waitlist of course.

While I think what you say is true, I just hope you are wrong...I am still positive!! I hope they just haven't changed that status for me as they haven't called me!!
ARGH! GOOD LUCK EVERYONE HERE!!!

Stanford is indeed a strange school. Given my unique background (I come from and had all my education in west africa) and number of reviews I had of my application by people connected to stanford, I thought my worst would be to at least get an interview invite.......I am sure a lot of us are wondering exactly what this school is REALLY looking for given the amount of time we spent on the application
