On the admit call/voicemail, DB said that my status would change online at noon. I'm assuming he meant noon my time, which is 9am PT.

Still on the WL. It would be nice if they gave some transparency on WL movement (how many from R1 started / were admitted / how many added in R2 / etc.).

EDIT: For those from the R1 WL it might be helpful to get a sense of what happened...

So far we've got megan accepted (congrats!) - any other movement either pos. or neg.?

Hahaha no worries! I think there is a connection between no recommenders = admitted. Hopefully see you in the fall?!

Meg926an, congrats on some amazing admits! Does this mean your definitely choosing Stanford over HBS and Wharton?

I haven't decided for sure yet-- GSB has always been my first choice, but going to attend the R2 admit weekend and then decide after that. What about you? Impressive list of admits to you as well. Have you decided where you will end up?

Not yet. I'm thinking I'll probably wait until after the financial aid offers come, in case there's a noticeable difference between schools, even though it's all need-based.

Two Masters Degree Options: Which is Right for You? [#permalink] New post 31 Mar 2014, 09:00
FROM Stanford Admissions Blog: Two Masters Degree Options: Which is Right for You?
Stanford GSB offers two different masters degrees focused on general management. Since you're reading this MBA Admissions blog, you're probably already pretty familiar with the MBA Program, which is a two-year, full-time program with no minimum or maximum number of years of work experience required for admission.

But did you know that Stanford GSB also offers a one-year, full-time program for experienced leaders? The MSx Program offers a Master of Science in Management degree to professionals who have at least eight years of work experience.

The two degrees share several similarities, but are also distinct in important ways.

What's the same?
Both the MSx and MBA Programs are full-time and focus on general management. They both feature Stanford GSB faculty and elective course offerings. They both provide the same access to Stanford resources like the GSB's centers, courses throughout Stanford, and university-wide institutes like the d.school. MSx students and MBAs both have the same opportunities to join clubs, attend events, and engage in the social activities of the GSB.

What's different?
On the other hand, the MSx core curriculum is tailored to more experienced managers. For instance, leadership coursework focuses on executive management development. Similarly, there is a specialized team in the GSB's Career Management Center that supports students who are further along in their careers and have honed their professional focus. The cohort of mid-career fellows in the MSx Program is around 83 while the MBA class size is around 408 students each year.

What about admission?
Both programs look for intellectual vitality, reflected in your aptitude and attitude toward learning. Both programs also consider demonstrated leadership potential. However, the MSx Program places greater emphasis on the amount of experience you've had (at least 8 years required). The MBA Program does not require any minimum number of years of experience, and looks at demonstrated leadership potential more broadly.

The MSx Program also considers your clarity of purpose as a criteria for admission. Clarity of purpose is reflected in a focused sense of professional direction, ambitious goals, and strong self-awareness. The MBA Program considers your personal qualities and contributions that add to the class. Personal qualities and contributions may include your experiences, beliefs, passions, dreams, and goals.

What program is right for me?
Deciding which program is right for you is a highly personal choice rooted in your own background and aspirations.

Unfortunately, that's stale information that I'm sure everyone has already reviewed more than once. The timings differ year from year, and frankly, it's just not useful info because there's more up to date info regarding the final day to hear back for R3 on Stanford's website. What I, and I think others wanted find out about is when they can expect to hear back for interviews as that is the logical next thing to look forward to. Thanks however for your attempt at helping the lazy crowd.
