Stanford GSB Posts Essay Questions, Deadlines

Late last week, the Stanford Graduate School of Business Admissions Blog posted the Class of 2012 application and notification deadlines. This notification came a bit earlier than usual, because, like Harvard Business School, the GSB has moved up the deadline for applying for Round 1.

This year’s application features some changes to the options for essay 3, and an accelerated notification date–before Christmas instead of in January.

You can find the deadlines here. Also, the GSB has posted the new short-answer essay questions; the two longer-format essay questions remain unchanged. You can find all of the questions, along with essay-writing tips from Director of MBA Admissions Derrick Bolton, here.

In July, the GSB will be adding more information to its site, including the admission application and instructions, so make sure to check back.
