As per historical forum stats, 14% of R2 applicants have got interview invites. (Last 3 years average) We have 152 applicants in R2 this year and 14 applicants - or 9% applicants - have reported invites on so far, so I think a big wave of invites is likely to come.

So we still gotta be optimistic until the final end!

Well friends, it was a fun ride and a pleasure to share the craziness with all of you on this forum. Here is the final update, mostly for the benefit of those who apply in future years. Best of luck to those waiting to hear on March 30 as well as to those who didn't receive invites in this round... Thanks all!

Why would they care? If I were the one who would be reading the letters, I would not check whether the letters were written with double space.

Stanford normally calls a day before the actual decision release date. So two days left for the decision.

International applicant in R3

I am having real trouble on deciding to apply in R3. I think I have a relatively strong application but I am not sure if it matters in R3.
I read comments on livewire about how it is too late for internationals due to visa processing.
I am based in Canada, not sure if this makes the visa process faster.

Could someone please shed some light on this issue?
It will really help me decide whether to apply

Visa shouldn't be too yuge of an issue, especially given that GSB starts classes a bit later than other schools. Check admitted Canadians' profiles and see how you compare, and if favorably then you stand a chance.

I cannot advise you on the Visa situation, but in general we caution people to really think twice about Round 3 -- especially for a school like Stanford which is THE toughest school to get into with a less than 7% acceptance rate. Everyone thinks their application is strong, but the reality is that unless you have a very unique situation (military, had a child, something that's a good excuse for not applying in the other 2 rounds) and are not either literally famous in your field or some other kind of superstar, it'll probably be tough to justify a spot for yourself. Good luck either way!
