We love it when Brave Supplicants do their homework.
We got this question from a military candidate recently:
I noticed Stanford has a comparatively lower percentage of Veterans in its class than many of the other top schools (3% or so versus 5%). Any theories on why that is?
Well yes! In fact, we do have theories!
Today we’re going to share them with you – if you’re in that contingent of military MBA candidates.
If you have access privileges on your account to view our Military MBA content then you’ll see this material. If not: Happy Inauguration! Merry Weekend! Best wishes for 2017! Or whatever other type of good-will generating we can do for you. We’ll see you back here on Monday for a standard installment of snarkness.

As a wrap-up comment:
Trying to interpret or extrapolate anything from the Stanford dataset and class profile is not usually a very fruitful effort. Stanford admits PEOPLE not numbers. The numbers can help point you in the direction of the standards of excellence that they tend to select on – but they don’t tell the whole story.
Good luck to all who are trying for Stanford this year! From the military or any other background.
