Stanford GSB Releases Deadlines For The 2017 – 2018 Application Season



Once again, Stanford is at the front of the pack releasing application deadlines for the class of 2020. The deadlines for the 2017-2018 application cycle have just been released. If you have been putting off thinking about applications, this can serve as a gentle reminder that the season is underway!

Round 1:  September 19, 2017

Round 2:  January 10, 2018

Round 3:  April 4, 2018

What is noteworthy?

While the deadline dates are not that surprising, Stanford has moved up the time of day that the applications are due. This will hopefully not matter for you since I am sure you will all be finished well ahead of the deadlines, but the apps are now due at 10AM Pacific on the deadline date.

What do do now?

While the questions have not been released yet, it is good time to start thinking about the stories that you want to tell. Look back at what Stanford has asked in previous years and start to draft material that you can use in essays once the questions officially come out.
