I currently have to remove about 15 words. In Essay B I mention "the GSB" a lot. Would it be acceptable to replace this with "Stanford". I know that Stanford is the overall institution, but considering the question asks "Why Stanford?" I think it would be deemed acceptable.

Sorry for the overly trivial question.


Yes this would be fine. The best thing to do is to vary it up throughout the essays. Good luck!

Best,
Scott

In for R1.

No, you can't view attachments.

One more question about app - I don't see the date for my digital signature. Is it normal?

For some reasons I received admissions update this morning not to my current e-mail address but to the one, with which I initially registered. Is this a reason to contact admissions office to make sure they use right address?

Applied R1 to Stanford. Thought I'd share my profile, I know I enjoyed reading others.

Work Experience: Started edtech company during/after school, acquired by the company I now work for.
1 year software developer/product manager at fintech unicorn (think Lending Club/Prosper). Switched to product manager 4 months into the job by request.

Extracurriculars: President of fraternity during college, still involved on alumni board as VP.

Undergrad: 3.42 GPA, Computer Engineering at UIUC, graduated 2014
GMAT: 770, 50Q/44V, 6.0 AWA, 7 IR

Race/nationality: Asian American
Sex: Male
Age: 24

Goal: Complete transition into product strategy role, either as such or as consultant. Connect that with what has otherwise been a highly technical career (interned at top high frequency trading firm as a software dev, also worked at both a national supercomputing lab and a national physics lab as a research intern), to become a general manager in tech.

Have the same problem... They sent to my old email address. All other emails were sent to the new one so hope it is not an issue...

Let me know if you find anything about it! Appreciate it :)

I recall reading an article on Forbes or on the Economist, in which it was stated that the rate of acceptance at Stanford is even lower than the rate of acceptance for internships at Goldman Sachs :)


GMAT
Range 590-790

that's good! with 590 accepted to Stanford? awesome!
