Hey mvictor , i didn't get any notification that i got a mention. i would have loved to help. please get in touch via pm next time.

For my application experience, I didn't get to use an admission consultant and my essay was about social impact. What helped was asking myself - why request for each of the information? - and how my answer will reinforce my overall goal.

This is the email I got few days ago:

Hi, Victor
Thank you again for applying to the Stanford MBA Program. We know you made a significant investment in your application; we value your effort and hope you found the process rewarding.

The days and months after submitting your application can be daunting. To alleviate some of this anxiety, we have outlined the next steps of the review process below.

Admission Process Dates

10 January 2017: Round 2 Deadline
Beginning on deadline day, the MBA Admissions Office prepares applications for review and distributes them to members of our team to read. Over the subsequent weeks, we review applications and decide which candidates will move to the next stage.

6 February through 8 March 2017: Interview Invitations
During this period, we will extend interview invitations daily via email. Interviews are by invitation only, and an interview is required for admission. We hope to interview roughly 1,000 applicants this application year.

If you are invited to interview, you will receive that invitation between 6 February through 8 March . If you have not received an interview invitation by 8 March, you will not be interviewed in this round.

8 March 2017: Application Status Update
On 8 March, you may log in to your online application for an update on the status of your application. At this stage, there will be three possibilities:

You have already been invited to interview, and will receive a final decision on 30 March. On 30 March you will find out if you will be admitted, denied, or offered a spot in the waitpool.
You were not selected for an interview, and your application is denied. This decision is final.
You are being offered a spot in the waitpool with the possibility of being invited to interview at a future date.
30 March 2017: Decision Notification Date
All official decisions will be released and available when you log in to your online application.

Rest assured there is nothing more you need to do to get our attention or improve your chances for an interview; your application speaks for itself. Out of fairness to all applicants, we don't consider information submitted after the application deadline.

Thank you!

Thanks in advance for your patience. During the coming weeks, we will review each and every application. Getting to know you and your fellow applicants takes time, but the result will be a tremendous Stanford MBA Class of 2019.

If you have questions, please contact us at +1.650.723.2766.

Thank you again for your interest in Stanford. We are excited to learn more about you.

Stanford MBA Admissions Office

Hi there, are you applying to R3 or MSx? I charge $70/hour (however will increase this soon) which is less than a third what most firms charge.
Feel free to book a consultation if you would like to speak about the possibility of working together.
Many thanks,
Farrell

so first...I get a phone call from CA...a guy got the wrong number...almost gave me a heart attack...
then received this email...again my heart almost froze for a moment...it's general info about R2

For just in case, here it is...

Hi, Victor
First things first -- this update is not specific to your Stanford MBA application. It pertains to all second-round applicants.

That said, we know waiting is hard! We have been hearing from candidates that knowing more about what's happening inside the "black box" might be helpful, so we are writing to share a little more information with you.

As promised, we will begin issuing interview invitations on 6 February.
Also, as promised, we will send invitations regularly through 8 March.
If you have not received an interview invitation by end of day 8 March, you will not be admitted this year.
We also want to share with you Stanford's response to the recent events regarding U.S. federal immigration policy. If you are affected by the president's January 27th executive order, we know that waiting for more information may be even harder for you. Please know that we are proceeding with our admissions process as usual and closely monitoring any potential implications for our current students and admitted students. Stanford University and the Graduate School of Business remain steadfast in the commitment to building a diverse global community of scholars and leaders.

Now, back to the interview process. Here are some of the questions we've received from you:

Why does it take so long? Why don't you send all the interview invitations on one date?

Because you're human and so are we. This is not an automated process. We respect the time and care you put into your application, and so we want to take the time to understand each applicant's background, aspirations, and potential. While scores and grades command attention in the blogosphere, each of you is more than a combination of statistics; we are building a community as well as a class. Yes, it's slower, but that is because real people are getting to know you through your application.

If I receive my interview invitation soon, does that mean I have a better chance of getting admitted?

No, we do not review applications in any particular order, and applicants are not ranked when we send out interview invitations. The timing of your interview invitation reflects only the order in which your application was reviewed - nothing more, nothing less.

Remind me, what happens next?
By 8 March, there will be three possibilities:
You have already been invited to interview, and your application is under consideration. On 30 March you will find out if you will be admitted, denied, or offered a spot in the waitpool.
You were not selected for an interview, and your application is denied. This decision is final. You will receive an email on 8 March notifying you to log in to your online application to view the status of your application.
You are being offered a spot in the waitpool with the possibility of being invited to interview at a future date. You will receive an email on 8 March notifying you to log in to your online application to view the status of your application.
Rest assured there is nothing more you need to do to get our attention or improve your chances for an interview; your application speaks for itself. We are enjoying the opportunity to learn about you through your application.


Warm regards,

Stanford MBA Admissions Office
