Fall 2015 Essay Questions

 

Use 12-point font, double spaced lines and do not exceed 1100 words for all two essays in total.

 

1.

What matters most to you, and why?

 

A strong response to this question will:

  • Reflect the self-examination process you used to write your response.
  • Genuinely illustrate who you are and how you came to be the person you are.
  • Share the insights, experiences, and lessons that shaped your perspectives, rather than focusing merely on what you’ve done or accomplished.
  • Be written from the heart, and illustrate how a person, situation, or event has influenced you.

 

2.

Why Stanford?

 

A strong response to this question will:

 

  • Explain your decision to pursue graduate education in management.
  • Explain the distinctive opportunities you will pursue at Stanford.

 

 

MBA Recommendation Letters

 

For more information visit Stanford GSB Letters of Reference.

 

Please make sure that all of your recommenders have submitted the online Letters of Reference before the application deadline. Stanford Graduate School of Business strongly suggests that your recommenders submit Letters of Reference at least one day prior to the application deadline. You should expect that late Letters of Reference will not be included with your application file.

 

Professional / Workplace Recommendations

 

One of these two recommendations must be from a current direct supervisor. If you are unable to provide a letter from your current direct supervisor, include a brief note of explanation in the Additional Information section of the online application. College seniors may use a direct supervisor from a summer/part-time/internship experience or alternatively, from a extracurricular/volunteer/charitable activity.

 

Your second Professional/Workplace Letter of Reference must come from someone else in a position to evaluate your work—another supervisor, a previous supervisor, a client, etc. or the peer recommendation below.

 

  1. How do the candidate’s performance, potential, or personal qualities compare to those of other well-qualified individuals in similar roles? Please provide specific examples.
  2. Describe the most important piece of constructive feedback you have given the applicant. Please detail the circumstances and the applicant’s response.

 

Peer Recommendation

 

This recommendation should be from an individual of equal position with whom you have worked on a project or on a team from any of your extracurricular, professional, chartiable, or other activities.  Choose individuals who have had significant direct involvement with you within the last few years.

 

  1. How do the candidate’s performance, potential, or personal qualities compare to those of other well-qualified individuals in similar roles? Please provide specific examples.
  2. Describe the most important piece of constructive feedback you have given the applicant. Please detail the circumstances and the applicant’s response.
