I am still waiting for my invitation to interview at Stanford GSB. Yes, I’m aware that it’s just two days to go till the window closes but you’re talking to the lady who got her Booth invite on the last day and her Sloan invite on the day before the last. I’m not giving up hope! I can’t!In my mind, I’m a member of Stanford MBA class of 2017, have been since August 1, 2014 and I don’t foresee any changes to that.
I’m currently preparing for my Stanford and Sloan interview (yes I know I haven’t received the invite, I’m not loony, but preparing for the interview is a better use of my time than worrying about when my invite will get here). I think my preparations are more detailed than my preparations for Booth, mostly because, I’m building on the answers I had planned for Booth and because I have more help this time.
I’m also shopping for my admission gifts (I always reward myself for a good job, any good job), I’ve identified what I want, and I’ll be purchasing them in advance at some point next week.
I know about four African applicants to the GSB (counting myself) and all of us are still waiting to hear from them. I think it’s too small a population to conclude on especially considering all the finalists for the African fellowship (which I didn’t apply for) applied in this round.
*sigh* permutation and combination are not my strong point.
