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.


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.

出願書類対策:Harvard Law School編 Part-1 推薦状の重要性

みなさん、こんにちは。前回はHarvard Law Schoolの出願締切日についてご案内いたしました。また、同校HPからは2020-21 Application Sample(昨シーズンのもの)をダウンロードすることができますので、本日はこちらの情報を用いて今後の準備を一緒に考えていきたいと思います。



You will need to upload your Personal Statement and CV/résumé and pay your application fee in order to submit the online application form. Please follow the instructions below regarding submission of your transcripts and diplomas, LSAC report (if you are using this optional service), recommendations, and official TOEFL report. You are responsible for assembling and submitting all of the credentials necessary for evaluating your application, and for making sure that all materials are received by the deadline.

同スクールへ出願する際は、大学独自の出願サイト経由で書類を受け付けていることから、Law School Admissions Council (LSAC※)の出願代行サービスは“オプション“となります。他校は、LSAC経由での出願で対応するケースが大多数を占めております。

Please note: We do not accept recommendations through this service.

これは、推薦状以外の書類はLSAC経由で受領するという意味です。LSACから提出する推薦状はGeneral Type (LSACのサービス内で左記のように定義済)で、推薦文には具体的な校名にも言及せず、全校共通のものを使いまわすタイプです。そうした性質を理解した上で上記の見解を発表していることを考えますと、Harvardの出願書類における推薦状は大切な役割を担うことが想像できます。
