Stanford GSB MBA Essay A | Admissionado
A few years ago, one applicant wrote the now famous so-called ‘tortilla essay’ and it was published on the Internet. Immediately, at least in MBA admission circles, it became the equivalent of the infamous “Peanut Butter” memo from a disillusioned Yahoo executive. It spread around the net like wildfire, and many applicants copied the style. It was when Stanford did not place word limits on essays.

Stanford GSB has released its and for the Class of 2017. Last year Stanford resisted the urge to cut an essay (while many other top MBA programs did reduce their number of required essays), but this year is another story: Stanford now only requires two essays, including its famous “What matters most to you, and why?” question. Plus, the Stanford GSB admissions team made a curious change to what we thought was one of last year’s most interesting application essays.For this essay, the school asks applicants to enlighten its admissions team on how earning an MBA at Stanford will enable you to realize your ambitions.When Stanford GSB’s former Dean of Admissions Derrick Bolton first introduced the ‘What Matters To You and Why’ admissions essay in the MBA application over thirteen years ago, did he have any idea that it would become such an enduring and iconic question? Even if you don’t include Stanford among your short list of target schools, this prompt is well worth reflecting upon before you start writing your applications.The early notice by Stanford started last year when the school announced its new dates on April 20th, nearly three weeks earlier than HBS’ May 11 posting last year. This coming year’s application season will be led by the school’s new assistant dean and director of MBA admissions and financial aid, Kirsten Moss, who doesn’t officially assume her duties until June 1. Moss, a Harvard Business School MBA, had had been managing director of MBA admissions at HBS from 1999 to 2001.
