Experience during the program

So far I've only been here for 4 months but it's like fantasy land! Everything is just amazing (except for the weather which has been a little chillier than I would expected, that El ninio! )
You can actually burp to get an interview with whoever you want just because of the brand. My class is amazing, I would say that less than 1% of the entire class can be classified as "Minor jerks". Really lots of fun with everyone. Each day you get to meet and talk with other succesful CEOs and entrepreneurs, just amazing!
The curriculum is also super cool, you have both world class GSB classes and some "across the street" and d.school classes that are simply amazing

About professors, classes and curriculum

The first semester wasn't that good but the second one when you start having more control over your curriculum is already super amazing

About job placement process

Like I said, you can pretty much go to whatever you want, or at least get an interview.

Experience during the program

The best part about Stanford is the culture and the people. The admissions process tries to weed out anybody that is arrogant or inwardly focused. The result is a culture that is non competitive and extremely supportive. For example, your classmates can bet the best source of career leads and information on new opportunities you are exploring. I have been blown away by how much people contribute to the community (planning events, etc.).

The opportunities within tech and entrepreneurship are also incredible. With close access to VCs in the area, a number of students are involved with part-time internships or entrepreneur in residence programs. The on-campus resources for start-ups are also expansive.

The school is very tech focused. While there is something for everyone here, it has been more tech centric than I expected.

Experience during the program

Stanford is a phenomenal school with a huge diversity in student population. The people define the school, who are all highly accomplished, with different backgrounds and yet humble enough to help each other out (ofcourse there will be few exceptions to this).
Besides the traditional career path, I would say the school is also for people who want to discover themselves, are not sure what they want to do next but explore several opportunities. But its very important to be yourself and not get carried away by what others are doing.

Suggestion to future applicants would be try to showcase who you truly are then a list of resume accomplishments. Thats what sticks with the school the most. Also once you get in, don't be on cloud 9 that you are only meant to change the world. You will be happier if you still expect reality on what the job market is out there, etc

Experience during the program

As a recent alum, I can affirm that the GSB's reputation is well-earned. Highlights include:

- Tight-knit class of nice, down-to-earth, diverse students
- Strong brand with strong career opportunities
- Beautiful location and facilities
- Interesting coursework, particularly in 2nd year (more practitioners, niche electives, ability to enroll in courses in other Stanford departments, etc.)
- Relaxed culture (grade non-disclosure, no class Wednesdays, ample vacations/breaks)
- Significant travel/international experiences
- Strong focus on soft skills (Touchy Feely, presentation skills, etc.)
- Great exposure to CEOs/executives and leaders across industries (View from the Top, Executive Challenge, class speakers, etc.)
