Stanford Leadership Grid [#permalink] New post 25 Aug 2011, 03:15
Hi!
Quick question here - about stanford leadership behavior grid that all reccomenders have to fill out.
(cant post URLs but just google 2012_entry_LBGrid_LOR or Stanford Leadership Behavioral Grid)

I am pretty close with all 3 of my recommenders for Stanford and they all said they would be happy to give me half 5s (the best score) and half 4s.

My question: should I tell them to give me a 3 on a few traits, so it doesn't look unrealistic? If all 3 of my grids are practically identical with 4s and 5s, will that raise eyebrows? Or do most people get ranked with 4s and 5s?

Thanks for any insight!

These grids need to eventually be put to pasture - they're silly and antiquated in my view.

Anyhow, 4s and 5s are fine (that's what most applicants will have) -- there's no need to overthink whether it's unrealistic or not. The most important aspect of the rec form are the written responses to the short answer questions, not this grid.
