IN at Stanford!!!

I just found out this morning that I got accepted at Stanford!! It still hasn't quite sunk in yet, for sure. I felt like this was my long shot due to its small class size and the dreaded Essay A, but nevertheless I'm in!

I feel really fortunate to have this decision in front of me (although the immature part of me would have been ok had the decision been made for me!) I honestly am not quite sure which way I am leaning yet, although my family and friends have already chosen sides and have started a little b-school tug-of-war. On the Harvard side we have family + college friends. Pulling for Stanford are the Cali friends. My boyfriend claims he's neutral, but I'm guessing he would rather not relocate across the country.

So far, I have found the admit weekends to be the most telling so I don't think my decision will be made until the end of april. I want to meet the other admitted students & get a better feel for the program. Truthfully, although both schools are near either family or friends, it does sound like you spend most of your time with your fellow classmates so I'm really looking forward to meeting them and seeing where I fit best.

I'll keep you posted... good luck to everyone waiting for S decisions!

How funny, I was doing the "next blog" thing and happened upon this one. We live a few blocks from the campus and my husband graduated from the GSB last year. It is awesome!! You will love it.

Granted, you would love wherever you went.... we were at Princeton for Undergrad, moved here during the bubble and were so happy to stay for Bschool... if you have any questions, let me know... we still have lots of friends (married and single) that are there now and can put you in touch with people if you want to ask questions to people who are there now...

Good luck!

How on earth did i miss this post??? Considering that i am super jobless at work these days!!!

Many congratulations on the Stan admit. You really have a tough decision to make.

As for me, add me to the list of HBS supporters :)

But that's a plain decision though, discounting ur personal plans in and after school. If you consider them, it is very much possible that the decision points to Stanford :)

Congratulations!! You are certainly are in an envious situation. What are your post-MBA goals? If you plan to be in tech/vc, then Stanford will be a better choice. For finance, HBS should weigh more, considering that its much nearer to wall st. than Stanford is. One thing is for sure - either of them is an AWESOME place to be at. So relax.

We were trying to signal that the essay wasn’t The Most Important Element of the application so we thought saying “optional” might accomplish that. But, this season, every applicant submitted a response. We get it. You want to tell us things,please tells us harvard business school essays.
