Application
Essay A: What matters most to you, and why?

For this essay, we would like you to reflect deeply and write from the heart. Once you’ve identified what matters most to you, help us understand why. You might consider, for example, what makes this so important to you? What people, insights, or experiences have shaped your perspectives?

Essay B: Why Stanford?

Describe your aspirations and how your Stanford GSB experience will help you realize them. If you are applying to both the MBA and MSx programs, use Essay B to address your interest in both programs.

Length

Both essays combined may not exceed 1,050 words. We recommend up to 650 words for Essay A and up to 400 words for Essay B. We often find effective essays that are written in fewer words.

Short Answers (Optional)
Optional Question A

In the Essays section of the application, we ask you to tell us about who you are and how you think Stanford will help you achieve your aspirations. We are also interested in learning about the things you have done that are most meaningful to you. If you would like to go beyond your resume to discuss some of your contributions more fully, you are welcome to share up to three examples (up to 1,200 characters, or approximately 200 words, for each example).

Question: Think about times you’ve created a positive impact, whether in professional, extracurricular, academic, or other settings. What was your impact? What made it significant to you or to others?

Optional Question B

We know that each person is more than a list of facts or pre-defined categories. We are interested in how your background may have influenced your life experiences. In answering this question, consider how your background, such as your work, education, skills, interests, culture, socioeconomic status, sexual orientation, gender identity, race, ethnicity, where/how you grew up, and/or other factors had an impact on your recent actions and choices (up to 1,200 characters, or approximately 200 words).

Question: Tell us about a time within the last three years when your background influenced your participation in a situation, interaction, or project.

Stanford Opens Door To Deferrals For International MBA Admits/学生ビザ取得が必要な合格者に対して入学延期を認める方針発表

【PoetsandQuants】
Stanford MBA はUS入国に際してコロナウィルスの影響により、学生ビザ取得が必要な合格者に対して、入学延期を認める発表を行った。
入学延期希望者は7/22までに学校に申請することが求められる
入学延期が認められると合格者は2021年もしくは2022年入学を選ぶことができる

JULY 22 DEADLINE FOR DEFERRAL REQUESTS

Moss, an assistant dean of admissions & financial aid at Stanford GSB, set a deadline of July 22 for international students to request a deferral, pledging to respond to all requests within five days by July 27th. “We will not be considering deferral requests for those students who need a visa after July 22,” she added. “While we want you to have ample time to reflect on your enrollment options, we also need to finalize the Class of 2022 to prepare for the Autumn quarter. Consistent with our usual deferral approach, we will still consider other deferral requests, (such as those due to unexpected health challenges or compulsory military service), after July 22nd on a case-by-case basis.”

The complete email from Moss follows:

I hope that you and your loved ones are safe and healthy. Despite our expectations that embassies would begin opening in July, many continue to offer limited visa services. We recognize the stress this has caused for international students who need a visa to travel to Stanford, and we want to support you during this challenging time.

We know that obtaining a visa is out of both your and Stanford’s control, and we also cannot predict when embassies will resume regular operations. Given this uncertainty, we are offering those admitted students who need a visa to travel to Stanford the opportunity to defer enrollment. If you request a deferral, you may choose to enroll either in the fall of 2021 or the fall of 2022.

If you would like to defer your enrollment, you must apply for a deferral by Wednesday, July 22nd, and we will respond to your request by Monday, July 27th. We will not be considering deferral requests for those students who need a visa after July 22nd . While we want you to have ample time to reflect on your enrollment options, we also need to finalize the Class of 2022 to prepare for the Autumn quarter. Consistent with our usual deferral approach, we will still consider other deferral requests, (such as those due to unexpected health challenges or compulsory military service), after July 22nd on a case-by-case basis.

You are invited to join me on Thursday, July 16th at 8:00 AM PST for a Zoom call to discuss this deferral opportunity and address any questions you may have. If you are unable to attend, this session will be recorded and posted on MyGSB.

I want to applaud several of your classmates for surveying international students and providing insights on the concerns students have regarding their academic, career, and social experience if they need to begin the MBA program online. Dean Hayes will be sending a follow-up communication which describes the GSB’s plans for the fall and addresses some of these concerns. She also will be joining me on the call Thursday.

We are committed to you becoming part of the Stanford community – whether you choose to enroll this fall or in the future – and will continue to serve as a resource for you as you consider the options. While we respect that some people may decide to defer, our sincere hope is that many of you will begin your MBA journey this fall. The world needs leaders now, those who are impassioned to change lives, change organizations and change the world. We are excited to collaborate with you as you develop lasting skills during this extraordinary moment in history.

All my best,

Kirsten Moss
Assistant Dean of MBA Admissions and Financial Aid
