Stanford published the new essay questions for its MBA program starting in 2015, with one question less than last year.
Essay A: What matters most to you, and why?
Essay B: Why Stanford?
Stanford grants a 1,100 overall word allowance for its candidates, and recommends using 650-850 words for the first essay and 250-450 for the second.
In addition, they released their 2015 deadlines:
Round 1 – 10/1/2014
Round 2 – 1/7/2015
Round 3 – 4/1/2015
Stanford updated that this year’s candidates will be required to submit two recommendations instead of three, and that the full application will be opened in the beginning of July.
