"The portfolio really allows students to showcase how they problem solve, it is more personal and allows for students to be creative in their self-presentation. (It’s an) opportunity for applicants to share something unique that didn't have appropriate placement elsewhere in the application. Systematically this forces students to not re-use essay applications and allows readers to see which applicants are putting in efforts specifically for our program."Paul Kirsch, Managing Director | Stephen M. Ross School of Business

"We’ve increased the number of applications from around the U.S. and international students. We also had applicants from farther away than ever before — Ghana, China, Russia.” And while growing the number of applications, CSI has dramatically reduced the amount of time it takes directors and faculty to review applications. I definitely would recommend SlideRoom."Kimya Stidum, Program Coordinator, Stanford Clinical Summer Internship.
