"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.

Looks like the typical interviewee profile here is: 3 years work experience, very high 750+ GMAT, 3.7+ GPA.

Getting no love from Stanford is hurting more than had expected, given that I already knew Stanford was kind of a tough reach for me ... ( Wasn't even thinking of applying initally but decided to give it a shot anyway)...

Anyway, congrats to all who got an interview and best of luck to the rest of us waiting :)

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

Good luck!:)

for the lady/gentleman reducing most of the applicants to 2 words consulting & IB and calling us boring, here is a tip that I got from multiple GSB alumni:
Stanford admits individuals, not profiles. The diversity that the GSB looks for is across multiple levels which includes leadership style, life ambitions, and motivations in addition to WE.
Not to be insensitive to your wait but you should really spend some time to reflect on why you want to shell out 200K on an MBA that promotes its peer-teaching environment given that a significant portion of the class will come from these backgrounds that you are calling boring...

I didn't say that this is big3 and IB applicants who are boring, but the process. As a person who received an invite from Stanford you should be able to see the difference. The world is much more complex, diverse and interesting to restrict to easy-to-understand career and life templates. It is not because I am not a big3 applicant that I say so; I would have said the same if I were one.

Stanford admits individuals according to alumni. Hmm, I would be surprised to here something different from an interested party. Who would admit that he is just a "template guy". Individuals, exactly that is why there are 20% of applicants only from big3:

http://poetsandquants.com/2012/05/15/to ... -stanford/

Not to mention those who worked in these companies right before they changed their work and applied (check on Linkedin).

Regarding the peer experience. We all know that this is a vanity fair. Signalling effect plays here a far greater role for employers than any particular skill, especially one obtained from peers and not from the acedemics. This is just how it works. And yes, this signal worth 200k.

Not to be insensitive to your wait, but you should really spend some time challenging popular templates. (Again these templates!)

Per my observation and confirmation with a UK Stanford MBA alum, Stanford accepts more UK applicants than any other top b-school... I'm curious if anyone knows why

Just a note: most alums would not know anything about this and would be guessing at best so I would definitely take that for what it's worth. I have never heard anything like that before, but I suppose it could be true.
