Do you have an idea on how they will inform us?
Is it the same agonizing process of Booth? Or emails notifications?

Haha. Thanks for the suggestion. I would use marriage only as a means to get a visa and start a company in the US. I am not looking for a relationship right now.

Ironically, I am principally against marriage as an institution. I believe it should be privatized.


How fitting, I'm of the same mindset. Sounds like we're meant to be together ;)

So, my fellow libertarian - am I correct in assuming you're libertarian solely based on your opinion on marriage? - shall we discuss our marriage contract? :wink:

I'm not big on labels.. I'm a free thinker :D

Let's do it!

On a side note, does Stanford waitlist non-interviewed applicants? If you withdraw your application prior to decision date, and you reapply, are you a "new" applicant or a reapplicant?

Officially, they do waitlist applicants without interviews. Unofficially, two people have claimed that they were admitted without interviews.

You mean this year? Where did they report that they were admitted without being interviewed?

Any word of recent invites? I've been trying to stay optimistic and holding out hope for a last minute interview, but it's getting increasingly difficult with nothing but crickets around here. Only two invites on this forum since their blog post stated invites are still going out. Since it's officially 1 week out, I guess I should shift my prayers to a waitlist spot. 10 years of W/E trying to compile a body of work worthy for Stanford & HBS and not so much as an interview between either...depressing. I just don't understand why schools don't notify candidates early when they decide the candidate won't get an interview instead of this torturous wait. I think every school should follow IMD's example and do a preliminary "do you have a chance" pre-evaluation.

Were these two candidates from the waitlist pool? Or are they just too awesome? :)

Sorry about the silence from HBS and stanford. But I think we can say that there are no more invites going out. From an admissions standpoint it's a little too late. But I do have a theory that they wait list some people that they couldn't interview in time for the deadline. Hopefully you hear some positive news soon.

This whole application process has driven me crazy. What happened this morning shows that I am indeed crazy, or at least, not far from it.

(I just wrote the following on my facebook. It is not really application related. But you may read it for amusement.)

I got sick. So I am now sitting on my bed instead of working in the office.

When I am sick, I tend to have long sleeps and in my sleep I have weird dreams. This morning, before I woke up, I had this weird dream which was quite amusing.

The dream started in a shop where the saleswoman made me rather angry. On my way to somewhere else, I started quarreling with my girlfriend until I got tired of quarreling. In this process I somehow realized that I was dreaming.

I started to float in the air consciously and asked my girlfriend "Do you want to fly?" She asked "Is it possible?" I said "Look at me." Seeing me flying, she was surprised. I explained that she was actually in my dream and we decided to fly together.

We had a lot of fun before we went to a restaurant. The following conversation took place.

I said "It doesn't matter if you have won or lost the quarrel. I was in fact just quarreling with myself."

My girlfriend understood and smiled.

I said further "Do you think other people in this restaurant understand it? Let's have a try.'

I picked up a guy sitting at the table next to me and asked him.

"Do you exist?"

"Pardon? Say it again?"

"Where are you from? How did you come into existence?"

He told me about his parents, etc., etc.

I interrupted him and asked "But what if your existence is actually made up by someone else? Let's say, you exist in a novel." - I said novel instead of dream because I did not want to give him too much clue.

He said "It certainly doesn't feel so. When I want to do something, I do it." He stressed on the I's in his sentence. Obviously, he was saying that he felt that he had free will and therefore he really existed and was not made up by some novelist.

At this moment I woke up but continued to think about the dream. I couldn't ask myself the following questions.

Is there a real difference between this guy in my dream and us "real" people in the "real" world? If an omniscient God exists, we can say that effectively we exist only in his thought. It doesn't get better if you are a materialist and believe in science, since all the physical laws seem to suggest that our feeling of free will is just an illusion.

So, do we really exist? Is Descartes' "Cogito ergo sum" still that convincing?

Last year.

One guy mentioned that in the 2011 thread.

Another guy I knew from a colleague who finished his MBA at INSEAD a few months ago. Both my colleague and that friend of his are from Israel. He told me that his friend applied to Stanford Round 1 last year and got wait-listed. And afterwards, without being interviewed, he got an offer.

i guess the waitlist--->admit is possible but i doubt that people get in without an interview (and b4 being wait-listed i guess)..its kinda sad...i was looking thru the YAle thread and it seems so happy and full of acceptances...come tuesday/wednesday we will only be checking to see how many of the 8 people who got interviewed got accepted.talk about a slow day
