Hi,

Everyone knows that an interview invitation is a good sign at pretty much all schools except Kellogg (mandatory interviews of all candidates). However, I am wondering what an interview invitation really means. Specifically I am curious what it means for your chances at HBS, Stanford, Wharton and Columbia. Do your chances of admission go up to 30% or to 50%? Or is it not that meaningful?

Is anyone accepted without an interview at these schools?

Thanks

I mistakenly posted this twice last week, but I was wondering if anyone has any insight on the above post regarding the significance of an interview invitation.

Thanks

mbaguy513,

An interview invite from HBS gives you about a 50% chance of admission. Between 40 and 62% of applicants interviewed by Stanford are ultimately admitted. At Wharton you have about a 33% chance of admission if invited for interview. My info on Columbia is not up to date, but circa 2006-7, they interviewed 49% of applicants, interviewed 84% of their admitted applicants, and admitted 17% of their total applicants.

Hope this helps,
