Thank you. I have heard lots of good things too about Entrepreneurship at Stanford.

Nope - didn't even look at MIT...

I'm huge on Stanford's strong legacy in Entrepreneurship. I'm less concerned about what other people think about my degree - more interested in what I will learn and who I will meet. So MSMgmt -vs- MBA was totally not an issue for me. For people who get hung up about that, I will still be able to say that I went to Stanford GSB...

I really think that people with my level of work experience (18 years) will mostly agree with me...

Hello,

My question is to all the current admits to the Stanford Sloan Master's Program.

What is the process once you have submitted the application? Are all admits interviewed? If yes, what is the time-frame for interview notification/invites ?
Anything else specific to the Sloan program admission process that is different from the normal MBA process?

I applied to the MBA program and Stanford sent a mail saying I should send an additional essay if I want to be considered for the Sloan program. I have sent the essay before the Round 2 deadline (Jan 15), but nothing else is clarified about the admission process after that.

Thanks.

Hi BlueKnight-

I submitted my application on 1 Oct, before the R1 deadline (15 Oct I think).

I was not contacted to schedule an interview until 11 Dec. Interview was conducted on 18 Dec -- I spoke with one of the ADCOM directors. I got a call on 21 Dec with an acceptance -- offer was sent electronically on 7 Jan or 8 Jan.

I think a difference will be who you interview with. All Sloan interviewees are interviewed by the ADCOM staff. I believe that the MBAs are often interviewed by MBA alumni.

I'm guessing they invited you to apply to the Sloan program because you are either more experienced or older than the typical FT MBA demographic...

Good luck with your application!

Thanks Erik,

Yes I am a 33 year old entrepreneur so that might be the reason.

Hope to see you at the GSB next year.

Hi Ratnapukiran-

No, have not yet visited campus and I do not believe it is expected / necessary. However, I will be visiting campus later this week. I'm going to sit in on a class and try to meet some of the current cohort. Since ive been accepted already, I'm more concerned with figuring out where to live and how to choose electives...

Hi all,

I have applied to the Sloan fellow program by Jan 12th. I was wondering if anybody had feedback on their application so far. Anybody gotten a Yes or a No yet ?
Will they call you with a no answer? Are positive answers faster to come than negative ones?

I just got the call too ! :) Actually Melinda e-mailed me to call her... So, I just 'gave' THE call. She informed me I was in!!! Awesome news. So excited. Now, I need to figure out all about the program! And see if it is better for me than a FT MBA. (that's what I was going for originally)

Yes yes yes! So excited !

Thanks Erik! It's looking like I will! :) can't turn down the GSB really. ;)
And they give us very little time to return a confirmation of our enrollment!

The web (outside of Stanford material) is sparse on info on the program, alumni, etc... Any outside links any of you have found particularly useful?

Looking forward to the opportunity!

Hi,
Anyone else heard from the program? I had my interview 2 weeks back and haven't heard back. Wondering what is the timeline for decisions. Are good news faster to come by than the bad ones?

Thanks.

Hi there,

Haven't heard anything on my side yet. Did you apply in the second round?

Also, can you please share what was the general direction of questions in your interview. How was the experience? Was it an alumni interview or with someone from the adcom?

Would really appreciate if people interviewed in first round would also share their experience.

Thanks,

:-)

Received the call from Melinda a couple hours ago - I'm in. Very exciting.

Anyone else receive notification? I applied in the first round and interviewed in early December, given that it had been so long I assumed that I was passed over.

Congrats to everyone who was admitted! NewCardinal created a Linkedin group for the class of 2014 ("Stanford Sloan 2014"); for those who hasn't joined the group yet, it would be nice if you could so.
