Experience a Week in the Life of a Stanford MBA Student [#permalink] New post 13 Jun 2014, 10:00
FROM Stanford Admissions Blog: Experience a Week in the Life of a Stanford MBA Student
What's it like to be an MBA student at the Graduate School of Business? Depends who you ask. Colin, a former US Naval Officer, makes quick trips home to change his newborn's diaper. Amanda and her classmates learn about the capital asset pricing model and the Modigliani-Miller theorum from her finance professor's M&Ms. Jennifer wakes up just in time to make it to her Career Life and Vision group meeting.

See the day-to-day experiences of nine students from the Class of 2015 in our new Week in the Life profiles. You'll learn what life is like at the GSB as these students share their favorite memories, post-graduation goals, and more.

Deadline for applying for Africa Fellowship is this Friday (June 13th). Its different from the round 1 application.
Can someone explain to me how to make a one page CV (required in Africa fellowship application) when you have a lot of professional experiences? Should I just skip some of them or should I use a very small font? :-D



At your business school, you will learn people discussing elevator pitch or expressing yourself in less than 30 seconds. It basically means being concise and clear in your communications. I believe every manager should learn to do that.

In for Round 1! Looking forward to tackling this challenging application process.

It's demanding, but it brings out the best in all of us, I think.

Hi all,

Aaaah, application season has started. I was blessed enough to be admitted to Stanford GSB and I will be starting this fall (Class of 2016). The GMAT club was such a resource for me and I loved the sense of community that eased my nerves. I am an African applicant (management consulting and accounting background). I've started a VIDEO BLOG (my preferred medium) to reflect on my application process as well as actually going to b-school - the objective is to be of service to applicants by sharing my story (not that I am an admissions guru or anything) and also having some people join me on my journey.

**The highs, the lows, the preparation - but most of all, the EMOTIONS** :-D

I hope you enjoy the videos and find them useful, send through any questions by commenting on my videos.

Stanford GSB: Class of 2017 - Calling All Applicants! [#permalink] New post 20 Jul 2014, 20:53
In for R1!

Thought I'd share the key takeaways from my Stanford GSB research.

- Innovation and risk-taking
- More similar to MIT Sloan [from my shortlist], i.e. technical/scientific and more entrepreneurial
- Collaborative instead of competitive
- Focus on leadership and experiential learning, students like to share feedback
- Small class and squad (5-6 people) size
- Grade non-disclosure policy
- Maybe more targeted at older candidates?
- Class of 2015: 7,108 applicants, 406 matriculating = 5.7% success rate! More stats here: http://topdogmba.com/2014/06/19/165/

This is from discussions with adcoms, professors, support staff, current students, alums and admission consultants. It is not complete, I may have put my own spin on things (linked to my specific interests) and some stuff may well have changed, but I'm hoping to spark a bit of debate and hopefully help your applications too.

Any thoughts?

Thank you for sharing; it's always nice to read blogs of other applicants!

Just want to point out one thing: for the Class of 2015, 7108 applied and 483 were accepted, making the "success rate" closer to 6.8% - 77 crazy people (my opinion!) just didn't matriculate. 6.8% is still painfully low, but every little bit helps!

Keep up the great blog :)
