I thought I would start a new thread of ppl who heard this month since the other thread says January. So, if you interviewed at Stanford and heard a decision recently, please let us know how it went and when you interviewed! Thanks!

I interviewed on 1/9/2007, and I haven't heard anything yet. I've been checking my mailbox 4 times every day. So far, I've gotten a credit card offer, a magnet for a local pizza company, and several things I've ebay-ed in order to justify my continual hovering around the post office...

Maybe tomorrow?! Haha... :laugh:

Hey folks, I just got an acceptance in the mail today, (no phone call, eastern time zone), w/ the letter dated 2/23 so I was reviewed last week. I interviewed on 1/22, and didn't really think my interviews went all that great, but both were quite friendly to me. Thus, keep hope even if you don't get a call or don't think you rocked your interviews. Good luck to all in waiting!

Hey all,

I interviewed 1/23 and received the very discouraging waitlist letter yesterday (from last week's committee meeting). Thought my interviews went really well but that just goes to show you never know....:confused:

Good luck to all still waiting... Just FYI, it seems from my experience and other posts that if you don't get the call on Thursday you get your letter (good, bad or ugly) via snail on the following Wed/Thursday, if that helps.

Here's what I know...

A friend of mine interviewed at Stanford on 1/19. She got accepted about a week ago (~2/28-3/1).

So, it took about 5 weeks for her to find out.


In last year's admissions cycle, two guys down my dorm hall (roommates) were both accepted about 2 weeks after their April interview.

Note that all these examples concern Stanford undergrads. Stanford tends to favor it's own, so the decision process was probably faster in these cases.

I interviewed on 1/9. I sent Stanford an email, and I was told that a decision on my file would be made this week (yikes...). Hopefully, I'll hear prior to next Thursday when I leave town.

This makes no sense. People who interviewed in the first week of Feb heard back, but there are still people in early-mid jan that haven't heard?? Eh?

Hi everyone,

I'm interviewing in a couple weeks. Were you guys told there was a general time window between interview and decision? I wonder if this process will be expedited since I'm interviewing so late in the game.

hi eekonomics,

congrats on getting an interview!

for the general time frame of responses, it looks like people hear back after little over a month. but it also looks like it's a pretty flexible time frame-- some people who interviewed later than me (i interviewed 2/5) have already heard back whereas i'm "going to committee" tonight... (eek indeed!)

i'm sure the dean will tell you about when you'll hear when you're there. good luck! :luck:

I know for a fact, speaking with applicants from last year, that they are interviewing for acceptances all the way through the season. Someone I knew personally interviewed in April and was accepted 2 weeks later. So you will be interviewing for a spot in the class, not the waitlist.

I don't mean to get you down, but that seems really late to me.

My interview request letter was dated Dec. 20, and I interviewed on Feb 22. The standard time interval between an interview invite and the interview day is about 6 weeks for Stanford.

December to April seems like a HUGE lag. Were you late in calling to schedule your appointment?

Anyway, you can still get in with a late interview. I know a couple of people (mentioned in a post above) who were accepted shortly after their April interviews.

Really.... When did you call Cassandra Sooter to schedule the interview? I believe I called on Jan. 5.

It seems that when she said that "those are all the available slots..." she may have been lying.

By the way, it is just me, or are the vast majority of the Stanford admissions office staff (except for Jonnie Perez) incredibly rude?

I got the invite on 11/20 and the earliest dates were in late Jan.. I didn't book right away cause I wanted to think about what date I wanted, but a few hours later the earliest date was Feb 14!! I booked that one immediately cause I didn't want everything to fill even more.

Yea, I agree that Cassandra Sooter is pretty impatient and rude. Jonnie is cool though.

I think you can ask Cassandra to put you on the 'interview date change request' list if you really wanna take a chance to get an earlier interview date (once it becomes available when somebody cancels their interview and such).

I actually found everyone in the office really nice. The only attitude that I got from Cassandra was when I called her at 7 am on the day of my interview. She thought that I was just calling about my application status, and had I gotten a call like that at 7 am, I would have been annoyed, too. During my interview day, Cassandra was really helpful, too. She has a lot of experience, so she's probably used to dealing with pre-meds, haha. Now my second interviewer was a different story, but whatever...

I think that my file came up for consideration tonight... *fingers and toes crossed*... Come on, Stanford...
