A great secret for those who are able to plan ahead enough in their b-school applications: many schools have pre-season women’s and diversity weekends to introduce prospective candidates to their MBA programs.
Going to one of these events gives you a great perspective on the school, and, to be honest, it puts you ahead of the competition. You’ll get insights you cannot find off a website or blog or… in your own imagination.
So here are the details for Stanford’s event — you do have to apply by April 15, but it’s only a short essay (not the big “What is most important to you and why” question!).
