That joint MBA/MS in computer science email they just sent was somewhere between evil and sadistic...



Just as I was starting to accept not receiving an invite, this email brought back all my anxiety! Finally, a joint degree program I would love to pursue but I guess it won't be happening. Surely, I should not form part of the ad campaign anymore.

I agree, after getting the joint degree email, the peace I had made with not getting an interview invite deteriorated. I called the admissions phone number and listened to the recorded message about interviews. It says that interview invitations are currently being extended, and they will continue to do so through the decision date of March 27th.

Everywhere else (including a previous poster who called and talked to someone, I think) said interviews are extended til 1-2 weeks before the deadline. I'm not sure what to think, but the optimist in me wants to hold out a teeny glimmer of hope.

I keep wondering if the joint degree e-mail was targetted, but it looks like absolutely everyone received it.

I interviewed and waiting for the decision.
Im not really confident. My interview went super well but still I have the impression that it is not the most important aspect of your application (More focus on essays and recommendation letters)...

I thought I wouldn't stress about it but damn this is hard!

Yeah my interview didn't feel like it went very well. She kept it to 45 mins on the dot and the email said to expect a 1 hr interview. She seemed mildly positive but I didn't feel like I put my best foot forward--it was less of a softball interview than I was expecting. So... hoping that it's not weighted too heavily here. It doesn't seem fair to weight one person's snap judgment about you heavily relative to the word of reputable people who have known you and worked with you through thick and thin for 4 years.

I'm surprised there isn't more activity on this board right now--where are all the other stress cases?

I suspect its because so few people actually got interview invites. At least, that's what I tell myself as someone who didn't get an invite. :P

Have also been surprised that it has been so quiet on here. Of the cycles of grief, I think I'm arriving at "Acceptance" given the lack of an interview invite.

In the same boat. Did not feel great coming out of the interview - my interviewer kept interrupting my responses / asking for additional detail / showed no emotion. Ended the interview by saying "oh i forgot to ask you whether you wanted to go to Stanford." Definitely not what i was expecting.

I interviewed, thought it went really well (1/2 hour interview, 1/2 hour lets have life discussions about women/leadership/business because my interviewer was such a Boss) but am so anxious for Tuesday... I imagine the lack of activity is because of many people not hearing about interviews(yet?) and those of use who have... what do we have to say right now? I imagine we'll be chatting up a storm on Tuesday! Best of luck to all

on another note, at the very end of the interview she told me she hosts a reception for admitted women so "can meet your classmates." it would be super messed up if she gave me a poor review and said that, right?!

Has anyone received an interview invite in the last few days? Or is it pretty much done?

If I wasn't interviewed, can I expect to simply receive an official "ding" from Stanford next week? Is anyone put on the waitlist in R2 who wasn't interviewed? Thanks!

Stress case here! My interview was fine but not outstanding...my interviewer was very nice and friendly so hard to tell if she liked me or was just being herself. So far, have been rejected from HBS and WLed at Kellogg, and feel like I have zero confidence about positive outcomes at GSB and Booth :( I thought Kellogg was in the bag, so getting WLed really shook me. The next week is going to be awful!

My interview went okay. I really have nothing to say which is why I don't feel the need to post. I am currently part of the zero-admit club, but i'm really hoping 1 of Stanford/Wharton will grace me with good news next week!

I threw an wish app in the well
Don't ask me, I'll never tell
I looked to you as it fell
And now you're in my way

I trade my soul for an wish admit
Pennies and dimes for an kiss interview
I wasn't looking for this
But now you're in my way

Your stare was holding
Ripped jeans Knight centre, skin palm trees were showing
Hot night, wind was blowing
Where you think you're going baby?

Hey, I just met you, and this is crazy
But here's my number gmat, so call me maybe
It's hard to look right, at you baby
But here's my number essay, so call me maybe

Hey, I just met you, and this is crazy
But here's my number gmat, so call me maybe
And all the other boys b-schools, try to chase me
But here's my number essay, so call me maybe

You took your time with the call
I took no time with the fall
You gave me nothing at all, but still you're in my way
I beg and borrow and steal
At first sight and it's real
I didn't know I would feel it, but it's in my way

Your stare was holding
Ripped jeans Knight centre, skin palm trees were showing
Hot night, wind was blowing
Where you think you're going baby?

Hey, I just met you, and this is crazy
But here's my number gmat, so call me maybe
It's hard to look right, at you baby
But here's my number essay, so call me maybe

Hey, I just met you, and this is crazy
But here's my number gmat, so call me maybe
And all the other boys bschools, try to chase me
But here's my number essay, so call me maybe

Before you came into my life I missed you so bad
I missed you so bad... I missed you so, so bad
Before you came into my life I missed you so bad
And you should know that... I missed you so, so bad

It's hard to look right, at you baby
But here's my number essay, so call me maybe

Hey, I just met you, and this is crazy
But here's my number gmat, so call me maybe
And all the other boys bschools, try to chase me
But here's my number essay, so call me maybe

Before you came into my life I missed you so bad
I missed you so bad... I missed you so, so bad
Before you came into my life I missed you so bad
And you should know that
So call me maybe

- With due apologies to Carly Rae Jepsen, and my application to Stanford GSB.

Anybody knows how the interviewers evaluate us? Is it a form with grades? or just a note saying whether or not we should be admitted?

Aw man, remember how we talked about being in the exact same boat, schools-wise? Well, we're STILL in the exact same boat! I was also WLed at Kellogg, and am also now feeling a lot worse about Stanford and Booth as a result. Not that I ever felt really good about Stanford, but still--ugh!

I've just been trying not to think about Stanford, since it seems like such a long shot... My interview went reasonably well, but I feel like my essays weren't the best, and I just overall don't have a good feeling about my chances. So I'm stressed, but... not really expecting a positive outcome enough to be really stressed.

Funnily, I know several people who were rejected by Kellogg and admitted to Stanford. I wouldn't let the Kellogg ding get you down. For one thing, every school is looking for different things. For another thing, my impression is that Kellogg is aggressive about yield management, and if you are clearly Harvard/Stanford material, they may reject or waitlist you to maintain their yield.
