For those who already had the interview,

do we really have to wait till the 27th of March or is there any possibility to hear something from GSB earlier?

Thanks!

Rather than asking for background info, can those who got interviews hypothesize a bit on what you think made your application stand out? What did you write about in your essays or did you think your recommenders told a certain story that stood out?

I understand since Stanford's essays are very personal if you prefer not to share, but if you're comfortable sharing I'm curious. I think that's more helpful then knowing the industry/GMAT/GPA distribution of those who got interview invites/offers of admissions.

and they said they would call you if they don't hear from you in 3 days they sent out the email invite, so no need to check spam folder :)
I think 03/08, Friday is probably going to be the last day of invite

If you're interested I would be glad to share my app: (this is also good for me as an interview prep)
I'm don't think there was was a particular part of my application that stood out, actually I can definitely say that there was no silver bullet (no special awards, no special circumstances, etc.) . Instead, I would say there it had a certain coherence. For instance, the 3 essays almost read like 1 big essay. The interviewers had very different perspectives to give (one life coach, one direct manager and the peer) but I am sure they each stressed different points of why I would fit well in an entrepreneurial environment (I made sure to give a brief about what traits Stanford seems to look for). I hope this somehow helps...

I spoke to several members of the adcom at different instances and they all told me that they will issue invites up until a couple of days before Mar 27th. So I guess that is Mar 25th !! .. I dont know where the two weeks thing is coming from ...

I checked my status and it says " Your application is currently under review." just wondering if this is a generic message that gets triggered after we submit our applications or does it mean that people are actually reading the application during that time frame...

I have been stalking this forum compulsively for the last month, so I felt obliged to pitch in.

Just got my interview invite today, an hour ago! Good luck to all else waiting, keep the hopes up, I was already convinced I was a goner by this point.

I'm in NY, I-banking background, took the GRE (I guess schools really don't care? We shall see), 3.66 GPA from a non-Ivy.

Best of luck to everyone, plenty of time left!

I got my interview invite today.
Mix between an international and domestic applicant. Emigrated to the US from Germany 1 year ago.


Good luck to everybody else who is still waiting! They are still reading applications, so don't give up :)

Hey folks,
question to ask (first post! - though I've been following this thread). I have a GSB interview, but mine is with a staffer, rather than an alumnus - and I can't seem to find a lot of information on what it may entail. The only thing I've seen is Derrick Bolton's note that staffer interviews are targeted. Any thoughts, feedback would be great - I wonder if me being local has something to do with it.
