We request all applicants to add Stanford MSx program to your MBA timeline so that the applicant stats displayed in the first post reflect true picture of admissions. While adding the program, MAKE SURE you are setting it for graduation year i.e. 'Class of 2018'.

Essays


Essays help us get to know you as a person and learn what motivates you.

Questions to Answer
Essay 1
What matters most to you, and why?

Essay 2
Why this program now? What are your personal and professional objectives, and how will the Stanford MSx Program help you achieve them?

Important Points to Note:
  • Our two essay questions are meant to be straightforward, not trick questions.
  • We hope that thinking about and writing your essays will prompt self-reflection and that your essays will go beyond relating the “what” of your experiences, to the “so what” and the “why.”
  • Other parts of the application give insight into your academic and professional accomplishments; the essays reveal the character behind those achievements.
  • When writing your essays, resist the urge to position yourself as what you think Stanford wants you to be; it will only prevent us from understanding who you really are and what you can accomplish. The most impressive essays are the most authentic.

Length/Word Limit
We do not limit the length of your essays in the Stanford MSx Program application, as we want you to use as many words as you feel necessary to convey your message.

Having said that, these are business school essays, and good business writing is succinct and to the point. If you are using the combined Stanford MSx and MBA programs application, your responses to the essays are limited to a total of 1,200 words.

Formatting
  • 12-pt. font size
  • Double-spaced
  • Arial, Courier, or Times New Roman font (recommended)
  • Indicate the question you are answering at the beginning of each essay
  • Number all pages
  • Be sure to save a copy of your essays and preview the uploaded document to ensure that the formatting is preserved.

Optional Essay
Additional Information
If there is any information that is critical for us to know and is not captured elsewhere, include it in the “Additional Information” section of the application. Pertinent examples include:

  • Extenuating circumstances affecting academic or work performance
  • An explanation of why you do not have a letter of reference from your current direct supervisor
  • An explanation of any academic suspension or expulsion
  • Work experience that did not fit into the space provided
  • Academic experience (e.g., independent research) not noted elsewhere

Editing Your Essays
*Begin work on the essays early to give yourself time to reflect, write, and edit.
*It is improper and violations of the terms of this application process to have someone else write or translate your essays. Such behaviour will result in denial of your application or withdrawal of your offer of admission.

I'm applying R2. I'm going through GMAT prep with Veritas and wanted to focus on getting a good score first since my undergrad GPA was below 3.0. Already started the MSx app. I'll be transitioning out of the US Navy as a Naval Flight Officer with just over 11 years WE and 5 combat deployments.

Has anyone attended an Informational Session? Beneficial or regurgitating of the website?

I attend their online session (both the MBA and MSx). Lots of information that isn't available on the website. For example, there's one session with current students where they talk about which nursery school to enroll your kids to, or where the current students with family clustered.

It's mostly "soft" data but great to give nuance to your application package

I think for Stanford, it's mostly alumni if you can't get an on-campus interview
