Maybe the common factor of the invitees so far is that they seem to have received their notifications mid/late afternoon. So, perhaps that's an indication for all of us to chill (just a little) the rest of the day.

Also, my two cents on the whole notification process is that, while Stanford says they are trying to ease tension by shortening the window this year, they haven't made a logical change to the way the send out invitations. Why not send out notifications in batches once a week? They can continue reviewing applications on a continuous basis, but just save up those approved for an interview until, say 12pm PT on Monday. Then they can tell every applicant "if you do not hear from us at this time on Monday there will be no further communication until the following week" and each applicant only needs to get worked up at one specific time each week versus being constantly on edge. I don't see any downside here. The AdCom can still make decisions on an ongoing basis and interviews can be set up for whenever, following the initial notification. So the person approved on a Tuesday doesn't find out until the following Monday, who cares? They'll never know and the rest of us can get through the week without the distraction.

Anyways, good luck to everyone. Keep calm and refresh often.

Thanks. :-D

They don't have an interviewer in my local area so they've offered me a telephonic interview or an interview in New Delhi/Mumbai. I have indicated a preference for an in-person interview. Lets see what they say

Guys, for those who got the interview invitation, do you see any changes in status of your application? I mean if accidentally an invitation e-mail is blacklisted will I be able to see anything in my application that I've been invited?...

Hope it helps!

Congratulations to those you have already received an invite! Awesome stuff.

Just wanted to check if the adcom is doing a sequential review. What date did you guys submit your application? (was it well ahead of Oct 2 or right on the button or somewhere in between!)

Cheers :-)

Good luck to everyone

Does anyone know if Stanford sends out invites in batches, location wise? I'm from Bangalore, India and have invites from both HBS and Wharton. I know 3 people here who have received invites at the same time a couple of days back (for the same interviewer) and I haven't. Any idea if this means that I'm unlikely to get one?
