I hear that if you hum the Stanford fight song backwards 3x, your chances of being interviewed and admitted go up 10%


In round 1 on this thread, there was a lot of talk about karma. People did good things, and ended up with an interview invite. I volunteered helping disadvantaged kids last weekend. Then this week, I suddenly got an invite... just sayin'

Let's all keep in mind that some of the candidates will be considered further - wait listed. And some wait listed candidates eventually get interviewed and some of those do get in - so even those who haven't received interview invitations may be considered later on. And while Stanford is a top school, there are other top schools, and there are lots of stories of success of people who never even attended business school ...

Alright. I'm officially losing my marbles waiting. I'm stuck at work working on a bullshit deal that I could care less about because I mentally checked out of my job 3 months ago. Derrick, are you listening man? Not even an interview, seriously? BUT I WROTE THE MOST AMAZING ESSAY WHICH LEFT ME TREMBLING WHEN I COMPLETED IT. I was so proud of my witty answers to your 'just for fun' section. Am I really going to have to pay for the sins of my undergrad (low GPA)? Does the billion dollars in investments I've done mean nothing to you man? Are you still with me Derrick? Every bone in my body is screaming I WAS MADE FOR STANFORD. I wake up every morning in cold sweats and immediately check my phone - praying for an interview invite. I pledge to tithe a % of my annual income to your already massive endowment. Nothing but silence. Really man? Really?

Ok, I'll go back to staring at these useless financials of a company that is most likely run by the Swiss-Italian mafia. Maybe I'll call in sick tomorrow so I don't have to deal with my bosses smug face till Monday.

Make it happen Big D, I know you got me. I know it.


Man...I hope you get an interview invite! LMAO!!!!

Damn...you're analyzing the financials of a mafia?? Stay alive till the summer and get out!!!

And the billion dollar investments are quite impressive (at least to me)!

Here's to hoping more interview invites go out to gmatclub members over the next few days (and all the other applicants out there for that matter) :) :)

Fingers crossed for everyone over here!

Man, I think you are speaking for many of us with this!

I am all in Round 2 so don't even have an offer in hand to reassure me that I can stick it to my boss in a month's time.

Hang in there buddy. We'll make it happen!!


It will happen.....in R3, if not in R2..... in 2015, if not in 2014.

Those who have lived with this dream would make it happen for sure. Difference is only of time. Quoting here a nice line that I found in BB's one post.

Best Luck to both of you and Congrats to all those who got Interview invites from GSB!!

Best,

Guess it's the final stretch, no matter what! Just curious but have people been getting dinged along the way in Round 2 or is going to be one of those en masse mailers on the last day where we check our application status to hear the bad news?

It will be soon, though. Another two days of speculation but on Tuesday everyone will find out his or her status.

I actually think they do work on the weekends. Some people have reported receiving invitations on weekends. And also it's possible they will still issue some invitations (even if very few) on Tuesday itself.
