Unlike HBS, looks like GSB does not limit us to 3 extracurriculars and 3 awards.

How many do you think is the right number to enter?

Don't want to list out too few. At the same time want to avoid listing the less impressive stuff

How many are people listing?

Take full advantage of this space. It's there for a reason. There are so many applicants to GSB, it comes down to the tiniest things sometimes on who they pick.

So this is a way for them to get some organized data on who's the best rounded and who could provide the most interesting perspective for their class.

So think about how these activities have led you to develop a unique perspective, hence unique contribution, making you unrepeatable and a must-have for the adcom.

In that way it could be what you see as less impressive, might be something they see as adding diversity.

So I would take full advantage of this space. Everybody who applies to Stanford has terrific work accomplishments, test scores, references.

Think about this as one extra way to set yourself apart, create a unique narrative, brand yourself.
