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!

Hi bradap, thanks for your question.

If you've earned 4s and 5s, I would not shade downward just for the appearance of fairness! Your recommenders should also have answers for leadership areas on which you can improve, so it's not as if the admissions committee will not get a full picture of your abilities.

My guess is that most recommendations shade toward the complimentary side. If your recommenders believe you've earned those scores, then accept them!

Best of luck!
Brian
