Reading results from past years on Gradcafe I expect Stanford econ to release the first results by next Friday (13 jan). I saw some reports of early admits on gradcafe, but not sure if we can trust them (and even if they are true, these are clearly outliers or insider exceptions that do not apply to the majority of applicants).

Hi! Does anyone know how Ph.D. interviews usually work? After receiving the interview email, how many days do we usually have before the interview to prepare? I'm asking this because I don't know whether we need to start preparing for the interviews right now, or is it totally fine to wait until the interview invites are sent?

I am new to this, so any related info will be greatly appreciated!

Good luck! Yeah I heard that the last cycle was brutal... What programs are you targeting for this year?

Do you know if most programs offer interviews before acceptances?

 

From what I heard, most econ programs don't have interviews (please correct me if it's wrong), but almost all Bschools require interviews.

Thanks! This year I applied more widely (i.e., programs in the 20s and some business schools). Last year I only applied within the top 20, as per my letter-writers advice, but it was more competitive than they were expecting.

Last year, it was on the Thursday of this week (so today) that Stanford started sending out letters, based on the 2022 Sweat Thread. Good luck everyone! This is such a brutal field to get into!

Pretty much the exact same story here.

Stanford could still send some results out today! It would be actually great. I prefer it to be before than after the weekend. At least we don't lose the weekend out of anxiety, and we can  still use friday and saturday night to drink and forget about it. Brace yourselves.

Still no news from Stanford... By the way, has anyone heard anything from any business school programs?   

I got an interview from HBS Business Econ a few days ago. However, I am not sure how many invitations they sent nor if they have finished inviting people to the interviews.
