According to this: http://cs.stanford.edu/content/faqs#b15 you meet the minimum GPA requirements for MS at Stanford.

  10. Thanks ssk2. Interesting blog post btw
  11. Their webpages (e.g. http://cs.stanford.edu/content/phd-and-ms-programs) now say that the decisions will be sent by end of March, instead of 16th March as it was until recently. I was hoping to know the decision by the end of this week Does anybody know what they're planning to do?
