I just got an admission package from the GSB this morning. They offer a very attractive financial package. I think the decisions are out for all groups including the econ group. Wishing you all the best of luck. I'm going out to celebrate now. :tup:

Thanks, guys. It's delivered by FedEx. I'm in the US. Waiting has been frustrating, and I'm so glad it's finally over.

congrats! It doesn't look like the decisions are on the website (and post on the gradcafe says decisions came by mail), so I guess I'll have to anxiously wait out the rest of the day until I get home to check if there's something there for me...

I received an acceptance packet today as well, although for the political economics track.

May I ask you same I asked the OP? Please, let us know if you were interviewed beforehand or not...and kudos on a super admit as well [clap]

I was not interviewed. The packet was the first thing I've heard from them since I submitted my application.

Just got a call letting me know I am in (Political Econ track). Haven't gotten the packet in the mail yet, but might be there when I get home. I also was not interviewed - don't think that's part of the application.

Has anybody received package from the Econ program?

carmine, was your package for the GSB Econ group? i'm not positive but i know decisions were not final quite recently, and it would not be surprising for the groups to send mail at different times. so don't lose hope if you haven't gotten notice (or at least until it's clear that some econ people have received a package.)

I called today (regarding the EAP program), and they told me no one had been notified yet. When I told her I knew somebody who had been admitted, I was told that indeed news would be released approximately on Wednesday, via phone calls or post.

So basically I got nothing.

Thank you for this information!
Then it is true that they did not notify anyone??

Of course it's not. Carmine and LoudAndClear are my evidence on the contrary. But the lady from the PhD admissions office said we all had to wait :(

Well, I was talking about EAP, not political econ. I do not know where Carmine applied to, but LoudAndClear did for Political econ.

I think it is strange that she said that the admits have not all been notified yet, because my admission letter was signed by the head of the entire PhD program at the GSB (a finance prof. if I recall), and not just by the head of the Pol Econ track. In either case, the admit day is March 14th, so I would imagine if you've been admitted, you'll find out in the next couple of days.

I promised to myself not to stay here anymore.....but I can't, and since I had such high hopes for Stanford's EAP, I'm really depressing.

Hey, Mr. FedEx postman, deliver the letter, the sooner the better!

I don't know if you will get into Mit... but.. otherwise, my italian suggestion is, go to Stanford GSB economics... just look at where the alumni are... top5 Econ departments OR top5 Business Schools... that makes the difference

Buddies, I have just been denied admission to Stanford GSB's EA&P program. Informed me via e-mail to see decision at website. Didn't hurt as much as NWU, mainly because I knew this was my biggest reach school......

Anyway, 1 dream school less, 7 more to go (discounting the four Fulbright schools which will be "no funding, so return to your home country, you filth" admits if/when they happen)

I am really sorry for you, let's cross our fingers for UCLA.. another friend there could be useful for the future...

Hey All,

I chanced upon this forum while looking for some info on financial packages... and wanted to reply since you're all anxious. Stanford GSB EAP did indeed inform on last Friday by email and by Fedex. I was told that only 5 people were accepted, only 2 from the US.

Their package was good, but not quite as good as Yale's...I was quite shocked by that!

Good luck!
