I was asking a friend of mine from college now at the GSB about the social scene there, and here's what I heard back:

"In another moment of frankness, I'm not really a big fan of the broader social scene at Stanford--it seems largely Frat 2.0, to be fair. Not everyone ascribes to it, and some of the closest friends I have in my life I've met through the GSB, but the larger social community strikes me as an extension of college (which is not something I'm too big a fan of). That said, there are plenty of opportunities to make much deeper connections with other students in the GSB, but I don't like to do it over beer bong at the local sports bar..."

Any thoughts?

Yes - don't you think this is likely to happen at any school though? Despite the cultural fit that many people talk about, there are bound to be different kinds of people in school, even if it's just 400 people. It will likely take the first couple of semesters to find like minded people whom you get along with better. And it may even be the people who go beer bonging (not sure if that's the right term) but in a different setting. At least that's my take on it.

You can definitely submit before all your recs are in. I wasn't going to wait around for my director when he has this bad habit of submitting the rec letters a few hours after they are due. Right now I'm in the process of walking him through how to submit the Stanford letter while he is out of the office at a conference. He can't seem to find his email with the access code and password!

Anyone else facing similar issues?
