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!

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.

Apply if you want but remember that round 3 is as unforgiving as it is short. . The chances of anyone getting into Stanford are small. The chances of a couple getting in are even smaller. I wouldn't make it any harder by applying in the last round. Anything's possible though...

Hello guys,

It's great to read all the replies
Does someone knows until when we can hope for a Stanford GSB interview email? :oops:

Thank you very much!

I heard a rumor that interview invites were sent out alphabetically by last name. Does anyone know if there's any truth to that?

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 heard a rumour that in order to decide which applicant to admit the adcom make a woodoo doll of each candidate and try assess what they feel towards it. It may be true, as my stomach rumbled last night as if I was confused by someone's attention. Hope they liked my doll!

Would those invited to interview be able to provide: last name initial, as well as time of day your email was received (with time zone)? Seems the reported invites are still very few, but a couple data points might help confirm this. Would also be useful to understand if there is one time of day they blast the emails (to limit the constant email refreshing)! Thanks!

I promise there is not. The admissions committee has said it a million times: there is no order to the application reads. Even if they read them alphabetically, sometimes they put an application to the side and come back to it once they've read more submissions. So even if there was an order, it's disrupted by their jumping back and forth to revisit applicants they had on the margin.

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.

Wow... looking at last year's thread was not encouraging... looks like they had few r2 invites... and they kept rolling out slowly until March 7th or so... In speaking with admissions, I was told most invitations will be sent by Mar 13th which is consistent... I guess this won't be as active a thread as some of the other top schools... Best of luck to everyone and maybe ease up on checking in on this one in particular... We've got a month before making a real yes/no judgment call.

Columbia gets my deposit money until then... (due next week)

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...
