Fall Campus Visits

Registration has just opened for Fall Quarter Class Visits, which begin on Monday, 8 October 2012. Find out more about these, and our other on-campus events, on our website.

And, as we always say (because we mean it), visiting Stanford GSB is a great way to get to know our program better, but a campus visit is neither required nor expected. Out of fairness to all applicants, we do not give preferential treatment in the admission process to those who have visited the GSB.

Worry that it's there, but not about where...

Recently, I held two webinars for Round 1 applicants to answer your last-minute questions. Many of your questions had to do with small, logistical details like..."Where do I put my CFA?"…"How do I abbreviate an award that won't fit?" …"Should I put my 40-hour weekend job in the part-time or full-time employment section?"

We're glad you’re paying attention to the instructions and trying to represent yourself carefully and correctly. Please be assured, however, that your admission decision will not hinge on whether you put information in one box or another. We read everything you submit. If you're not sure where to put something, just do what makes sense. Feel free to include a brief explanation in the Additional Information section of your application.

And, yes, don't forget to run spell check. :-)
