I had a thought that might help some of my fellow GSB hopefuls so I thought I would share it here. I'm fortunate (and a bit foolhardy) to have applied to a range of schools this round, and most of them will send out their interview invites in the last 2 weeks of October based on current announcements and last year's R1 timelines. Stanford only stops sending invites out on the 4th of November. So come the evening of the 4th, I would be facing 3 potential scenarios:

1. I would have received an interview invite from Stanford, in which case I would be elated, and you'll hear my screaming from South Africa.

2. I would not have received an invite from Stanford, but would have received an invite from another top school such as Wharton, Booth, MIT, or Haas. In which case, I'd be excited because those are all great schools and I would love to join any one of them.

3. I would not have received an invite from Stanford or any of the other top schools I applied to. Maybe I get an invite from others like Ross or Darden, maybe not. But if its the case that all 6 of my top schools said no, then I really shouldn't be that disappointed that Stanford rejected me. I would then need to recalibrate my expectations and decide on taking what I have or re-applying, in a much wiser position than before.

Come November 4th, all will be clear for each of us, and for most of our schools as well. I hope that helps some of you navigate these uncertain few weeks.

Guys I was re reading my application an realized in the "aspiration after graduation from GSB" question I did not fully include my complete career goals but instead my inmediate goal after graduating... do you think this is something bad? I did include my goals in the Essay but still.... I am worried when they read the question they will think it is such a "small" goal.... what do you think?


I'm on the same boat, I put my short term goals there, but am nervous that I didn't tie it in well enough in the other essays. I spoke about my passion for education and for creating a social impact fund, but only put that I would like to transition into an operating role in that industry after graduating and didn't mention my long term goal of creating a social impact fund there.

Should I be nervous or should I send additional info? Any advice is appreciated

I'm going to talk to a friend that's at Stanford to see what she thinks. I'll let you know what she recommends doing in this case.

But if anyone here, advisor or otherwise has some advice I would be infinitely grateful.

Hi everyone,

For the goals and aspirations section, I wrote about immediate goals. I was fortunate enough to receive an interview to the GSB, so I don't think they care particularly about short vs long-term, more so that the aspirations you include align with your application.

Hope this eases people's tensions!

I received the following insight from a former adcom at GSB: "the order in which interview invites are sent is less dependent on the competitiveness of the candidate and more a function of how the quickly the reviewer finishes their quota of allocated applications"

Those who have already received the interview invites, can you tell me when your interviews are?

We are planning to organize a Stanford interview prep session and would like to schedule it as per the interview timeline
