Essays help us learn about who you are rather than solely what you have done. Other parts of the application give insight to your academic and professional accomplishments; the essays reveal the person behind those achievements.
When writing your essays, our best advice is simple: answer the question. Resist the urge to “package” yourself into what you think Stanford wants to see. Doing so will only prevent us from understanding who you really are and what you hope to accomplish. The most impressive essays are the most authentic.

Essay Questions

We request that you write two personal essays. In each essay, we want to hear your genuine voice. Think carefully about your values, passions, aims, and dreams prior to writing them.

Essay A: What matters most to you, and why?

For this essay, we would like you to:
  • Do some deep self-examination, so you can genuinely illustrate who you are and how you came to be the person you are.
  • Share the insights, experiences, and lessons that shaped your perspectives, rather than focusing merely on what you’ve done or accomplished.
  • Write from the heart, and illustrate how a person, situation, or event has influenced you.
  • Focus on the “why” rather than the “what.”

Essay B: Why Stanford?

Enlighten us on how earning your MBA at Stanford will enable you to realize your ambitions.
  • Explain your decision to pursue graduate education in management.
  • Explain the distinctive opportunities you will pursue at Stanford.
  • If you are applying to both the MBA and MSx programs, use Essay B to address your interest in both programs.


Your answers for both essay questions combined may not exceed 1,150 words (1,200 words if you are applying to both the MBA and MSx programs). Each of you has your own story to tell, so please allocate these words between your essays in the way that is most effective for you. Below is a suggested word count, based on what we typically see.
EssaySuggested Word Count
Essay A750
Essay B400
Essay B (if applying to both the MBA and MSx programs)450

  • Double-spaced
  • Write the question you are answering at the beginning of each essay (does not count toward the word limit)
  • Number all pages
  • Upload one document that includes both essays
Be sure to save a copy of your essays, and preview the uploaded document to ensure that the formatting is preserved.

Editing Your Essays
Begin work on the essays early to give yourself time to reflect, write, and edit.
Feel free to ask friends or family members for feedback — especially about whether the tone and voice sound like you. Your family and friends know you better than anyone. If they think the essays do not capture who you are, what you believe, and what you aspire to do, then surely we will be unable to recognize what is most distinctive about you.

Feedback Vs. Coaching

There is a big difference, however, between “feedback” and “coaching.” You cross that line when any part of the application (excluding the letters of reference) ceases to be exclusively yours in either thought or word.

Appropriate feedback occurs when others review your completed application — perhaps once or twice — and apprise you of omissions, errors, or inaccuracies that you later correct or address. After editing is complete, your thoughts, voice, and style remain intact. Inappropriate coaching occurs when you allow others to craft any part of your application for you and, as a result, your application or self-presentation is not authentic.
It is improper and a violation of the terms of this application process to have someone else write your essays. Such behavior will result in denial of your application or revocation of your admission.

Karen’s Essay Analysis (个人观点仅供参考,转载请注明出处)


Essay A: What matters most to you, and why?
这篇文章的重点不是这个“what”,不需要费尽心思试图琢磨出一个惊世骇俗夺人眼球的答案。我看过的成功录取人的Essay中,这个“what”本身绝不稀奇,有的甚至有些俗套,有的也许就是正在看这篇解析的你曾经想过的内容。但每个“what”背后的supporting evidence,却都自成一体,彰显出与众不同的个性。


Essay B: Why Stanford?
Why school和申请人未来想做什么、希望从商学院获得什么——这样一个vision,终究是分不开的。因此,文章的开头,建议申请人还是先简要阐述一下自己的professional goal(s),这个goal(s)最好具备以下几个特点:

说清楚了goal,文章的后半部分则要描写在Stanford GSB所能获得的一些“独特的”机会,比如课程、项目、活动、学生组织等等,记住,是“专属于它”的资源。表明一下你打算如何利用这些资源去更好地实现你的目标。
