d.school Winter 2015 Pop-Up Common Application
Welcome! We are excited you're applying! If you have any questions about the process or just want to chat about design, reach out to Tania at tania@dschool.stanford.edu


Let's get started!
 
The Details:
You can apply to ALL Pop-Ups with this one application.
The application deadline is Sunday 12/14 at 11:59pm. Applicants will be notified of admissions decisions by 12/21.

For detailed information on classes including times, dates, contact information, etc. see: dschool.stanford.edu/classes and email Tania at tania@dschool.stanford.edu with questions! 

Pro tip: We recommend being judicious in selecting which classes to apply to. If you're super excited to take a d.school pop-up, applying to all of them may hurt more than help your chances of getting in because teaching teams are unable to discern your interest in their individual class. Admissions decisions are made by individual teaching teams.

Hope to see you here soon!

Describe the best experience you've had working on a team. *

As is the case with most d.school classes, this class might involve working (and learning to work) in teams. Tell us about the best experience you have had working on a team. What made it work? What role did you play?
 
Tell us about your previous experience with design or design thinking. *

Share a time you used design thinking in a class, project, or challenge. This could relate to academic, professional, or personal work. Or if you're totally new to design thinking tell us what you find exciting about it and what drew you to the d.school.  There's no right or wrong answer here: classes are looking for a diverse group of students and skill sets.

Pledge of Attendace *

If my application is accepted and I decide to enroll in a pop-up class, I pledge to attend all class sessions. I understand that by failing to attend all sessions of a pop-up class that I have enrolled in, I may be jeopardizing my chances of being admitted to a d.school class in the future.

 
Keep in Touch!

In the future, I would like to hear about upcoming d.school classes and events. (You can always unsubscribe).
