Agreed!! What an experience .. good luck to all R1ers .. I guess we all need it.
Any ideas when the interview invites start going out? I know that they do keep going out until the last week before their Dec 14th decision date

Also, a piece of advice to all those submitting today or in later rounds - if you have issues with your resume uploading in the proper format, try changing the font of your resume to Times new roman and make sure your bullets are standard form. Do double check your application in pdf form (you can check by pressing the print button on the bottom left) to make sure your resume is not out of format

One of my recommendations came in at 5:01. Will I get pushed back a round?

I have the same question: how late will recommendations be accepted?

Hi guys,

I actually had the same question (I wasn't too sure about one of my recs) and called the admissions office a couple of days ago. They said there's a chance that late recommendations might not get added to your file if submitted late, so your application would be evaluated with 1/2 recs. It's best to take shekmba's advice and call them.

I recently took part in a conference call (on Ocotber the 4th) on admission processes and the Stanford representative said that if a recommendation comes in late what they do is they review the candidate with the rest of the materials that are attached to the file online (e.g if you have one recommendation that came in late you'll be probably reviewed with two recommendations on your file instead of three). She also said that it often happens that to send a recommendation 1-2 days after the deadline is still ok.

Has the status on the online app changed for anyone? Or has anyone received some kind of confirmation email stating that the application is under review?

I find in general that the communication from the Stanford admissions office is not at par with other schools. I do know they respond very well to email; I just wish they were a bit more transparent about the process.

No status change for me. I have the same situation with Booth too.

Does anyone know when does Stanford start to send out interview invites for R1 applications? Do they send invites in bulk or as one-offs as they read the applications?

Found this on GSB website in relation with the above question. Hope this helps everyone.
"The timing of your interview invitation reflects only the order in which your application was reviewed in the Admissions Committee. Interview invitations are extended from about a week after the round's deadline until about a week before the round's notification date, because it takes the Admissions Committee that entire period to review all applications thoroughly"

Ditto. I wish Stanford had a narrower window for sending out interview invites - it would save applicants a lot of heartache.
