Stanford is holding an in person info session/networking event in Texas that I’m going to tomorrow. This will be my first time attending an in person MBA admissions event. I’m nervous. What should I talk to the adcom about? Any advice is appreciated.

Diversity Programs & Initiatives

When we opened in 1891, our initial class of students included groups who had historically been denied equal access to higher education, such as women, Native and Black Americans. And we’re constantly evolving to live up to the ideal that all are welcome, even as we acknowledge past wrongs.

Working towards a diverse campus, where people from all types of backgrounds could work, learn and innovate together has contributed to our legacy of impact.

    Interview

    Easy process, scheduling was quick.
    Interviewed with multiple people in one day, it was a combination of in-person and zoom, it was well coordinated. Everyone was nice. I heard back within a week, as they had shared. The manager was great at answering my questions.
