Invitations are coming out from the 8th of february until the 8th of march so I guess we will have to wait for at least a couple of weeks.


Do we know how they worked last year? Are they just rolling invites for a month or do they do batches?

Reapplicant here - invites went out on a rolling basis. Timing of invite had no bearing on outcome. I got mine on 2nd day, and was eventually waitpooled then released. Good luck everyone!

Did you get any feedback on your previous application? Do you mind sharing a bit about yourself (Background, GMAT, GPA, age, experience, etc.)

Does anyone know what the typical time distribution of Stanford invites are? IE are the majority in the first few days, or are they evenly spread the whole month?

Narenn Can you please help out here. The plot distribution will help.

I would request to put your plots on the first page of each school thread. That way its easily accessible.

Anyone has an answer to that? Do they usually send some invites on the first day? (today for Round 2)


Yeah, apparently so. Last year I believe they started coming out around 11am PST.

I'll chime in about the end of the interview range (which goes for a full month)... I had a client a few years ago who had lost all hope because she had been dinged at HBS and Wharton, as well as some Tier 2 schools. She got an interview invite from Stanford on the ultimate LAST DAY of the month-long range and is currently a second-year student there.

So don't give up hope... they really do send invites out that entire time, and just because you may get one at the bitter end doesn't mean your chances are lower.

Best of luck!

I agree. On the flip side, getting invites early also doesn't mean you are shoo-in. I mentioned previously - I'm a reapplicant; I applied R1 last year and got invited on second day of the whole agonizing month. It was a relief, but I was waitlisted/waitpooled after interview, and denied when R2 results were released. I also have friends at the GSB who got invited in the final week and were accepted. Invites also went out on weekends. :) My point is - just sit tight, live your life, and one day you may just get an email with the headline: "Stanford MBA Admissions: Invitation to Interview".

Good luck to us all this time round!

Also, for those interested, I'm pasting my invite from last year:

Dear helloitsme16,

Greetings from the Stanford MBA Admissions Office! We have reviewed your application, and we are delighted to invite you to interview.

The first step in this process is for you to let us know your location and general availability for the next two weeks. This information will help us match you with an interviewer.

Please log in to your application. Click on "Update Interview Info" to provide your current contact information and to let us know where you are available to interview. Once that's done, we will connect you with an interviewer and you will find a time to meet for your 45- to 60-minute interview.

I'm sure you have lots of questions, so I have appended a few FAQs to the bottom of this email. If you have any other questions, particularly about the interview process or about scheduling your interview, please feel free to email me at [redacted] or call [redacted].

Thank you for your continued interest in the Stanford Graduate School of Business.

Warm regards,
MBA Admissions Office
Stanford Graduate School of Business



FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS ABOUT STANFORD MBA PROGRAM INTERVIEWS


Is it a positive sign to be invited to interview? What are my chances at this point?
Yes! Candidates invited to interview have been reviewed by the Admissions Committee and are considered competitive for admission.

We expect that about half of the candidates interviewed will be offered admission. We say this not to be discouraging, but to highlight the reality of a highly selective admission process.


What is the weight of the interview?
There is no specific weight assigned to the interview. It certainly does not supplant your written application. Rather, we place it among the other elements of your application as one part of our comprehensive evaluation process. The interview certainly matters -- all parts of your application matter -- but a positive interview does not guarantee admission, nor does a poor one preclude it. We are simply looking to learn more about you.

Please try not to think of the interview as some sort of "final exam" that you either pass or fail. As helpful as it is in learning more about you, the interview can only give us a snapshot of who you are on a particular day and time. Rest assured that final decisions are based on your application as a whole.


Is there any significance to when I received my interview invitation?
No, the timing of your interview invitation reflects only the order in which your application was reviewed.


How can I prepare for the interview?
Our number one piece of advice is simple: be yourself. There are no trick questions. Your interviewer will ask you to reflect deeply on your professional and personal experiences and will look for the behaviors, skills, and attitudes that we believe are key to good citizenship here in the Stanford community and vital to high-impact leadership post-MBA. In answering these questions, don't try to tell us what you think we want to hear. Be confident, and stay true to yourself. Above all, that's what we're looking for.

Additionally, try to take care of yourself the night before and the day of your interview. Get plenty of rest. Make sure you schedule ample time to get to your interview location. Eat and hydrate. Help yourself be at your very best that day.

Lastly, remember that the interview is not only an opportunity for us to learn more about you, but also for you to learn more about Stanford. It is designed to be a positive exchange of ideas and information, a conversation among equals.

Sorry HSidhu89 , I just saw this post. The graph below will display latest status of invites. Presently no R2 invite reported so far.




I also pulled up stats from past year's database to prepare this table that shows datewise distributions of invites.
