Good luck to everyone hoping for a call today! Got off the waitlist from R1 yesterday, I know how nerve-wracking today is going to be. Try to stay distracted, be pleasantly surprised if/when you get the call, and don't beat yourself up if you don't. If things don't turn out the way you want, it'll sting a bit for a day or two, but then you just pull yourself back up and go back at it 110%. But of course, hoping for great news for most of you!!

Congratulations!! :) So happy for you!! Did you also post on ClearAdmit? Guessing they go through the waitlist all at once... in which case looks like it's all over. Ohwells!

I did, so it looks like there's only been one other call so far (pretty sure the other was a troll). You may still have a shot! Good luck and thanks so much!!! :) :) :)

I was fortunate enough to get a call last night - excited to meet y'all in the fall and best of luck to those still waiting. My advice is to ignore all of the speculation about region / alphabetic order / industry. It truly seems random based on my name / industry and the order of calls that have come in. There is still hope until the end and speculation will drive you nuts!

Every situation is different, but unless you are part of a unique military operation or have some other very, very, VERY compelling predicament that they are sympathetic to, a deferral is almost unheard of.

Hi All

It was such a fun ride here at GMAT club. For all those who are applying to b-schools in round 3 and it the next cycles, all the very best. I will mostly visit this site when it's round 3 decision time, simply because it is so much fun!

So till then, bye

I got accepted from waitlist. I wrote them a mail explaining them about both my professional as well as personal circumstances which made it nearly impossible for me to join school this year. Was delighted to hear that my request for deferral was accepted.

So, i'll say, go ahead and try to tell them your reasons very sincerely. Good luck!

I turned in my application for R3 on 4/2, and I mistakenly thought I would be less stressed after submission. So here I am, perusing the forum, because I can't get it off my mind! Thankfully there's more than enough incredible info here to keep me busy. Thank you to everyone who provided profile snapshots. I found it to be helpful.

My profile, to try and justify a spot in R3:
Navy pilot for 8 years (a little over 10 years of work experience by the time I exited - the difference being time in flight school at the beginning). I left active duty in February, and made a big move to a different city to explore working in a more dynamic field - energy. I'm at a private renewable energy firm in a hybrid finance/operations role now (think project finance, post-construction). I've had this plan in mind for a couple years: industry experience --> start my own firm in cleantech or renewables technology. Decided I needed an MBA as a key transition step instead of just WE. Stanford's curriculum offerings related to energy are the best thing out there, and I'm from Silicon Valley so it would be an easy transition back home.

Undergrad: top 30; 3.2 GPA in econ & pol sci; club sailing and crew (captain) but extra-curriculars don't matter much at this point since it was so long ago.
Grad: Service school, 3.6 GPA in strategic management
GMAT: 760 (Q49/V45/AWA6/IR7)

I'm on the older side, obviously, and I have kids so I made the case that R1 and R2 didn't work for my timeline since I couldn't swallow that much disruptive change right around the time I was leaving active duty. We'll see what the adcom thinks. Would love to follow up with anyone else applying in R3 just to see what it takes to get in for the most competitive round. Good luck everyone!

Hi Rajeev, I just PM-ed you. Would really appreciate your insights, if you can spend a minute to answer. Thank you in advance!

Nothing yet. I don't think I'll sweat it until a week from now. After talking with a current student (who got in during R2 last year), he didn't hear anything until 10ish days before the notification date.
