What is your overall opinion of this school?

Stanford University is the most famous school in the department of technologies and other science. They lead the 4th industrial revolution and make great changes of them. I visited the school last year and I decided to apply for the school. Finally I got acceptance mail from school. The school grant me a great amount of scholarships but I heard that the living expenses are very demanding. However the school was amazing and It was really good experience.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

This school is my dream school. My older brother goes here, and he loves it! The competition in the university is very high and can be stressful, but the administrators are there to help you pass the class. The clubs and organizations are incredibly active. The sports teams are so well bonded, they act like family. Stanford is not known as a party school, but after the mid-terms, the students are very active.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

I will always love Stanford for the memories and the people I have met. Stanford, in many ways, is amazing--sunny all the time and a campus out of a magazine. What's special about attending an "elite" institution is the number of opportunities available--funding for projects, opportunities to travel for free, opportunities for publication, opportunities to work with leaders in your field and more. If you're looking for opportunity, you will find it at Stanford. What sucks about Stanford is probably what sucks at any other private institution in the country: change is slow, it seems like administrators don't care what students think or want, the financial aid department can ruin your day, there are a ton entitled white, rich kids here who pretend like they're not entitled, white rich kids. STEM will always have more opportunities than other fields; the influence of Silicon valley is prevalent. Oh, and you can't find a place to eat past 10 PM other than Late Night Dining, Happy Donuts, and L&L Hawaiian bbq. Tragic.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

Besides its stellar academics, Stanford provides a diverse set of opportunities for students to explore, ranging from engineering to the arts; however, there tends to be an emphasis on STEM fields and compared to the arts. For example, many art classes come with a fee, which discourages many from taking art classes. Stanford also provides plenty of resources in advising, internships, and research and also encourages students to explore a variety of fields through the courses offered as well as extracurricular activities.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

I went on a college trip and Stanford was on my list. My experience made me want to stay forever. The overall feel was welcoming, positive and encouraging. Students genuinely looked happy to be living and learning at Stanford University. Having the opportunity to share ideas and innovate on the outskirts of Silicon Valley is such a unique and once in a lifetime experience. The food is good too! Hopefully I can represent Cardinal this fall!

What is your overall opinion of this school?

I don’t know I was never accepted. I could have applied but my ACT score was really low. Harvard=36 Standford=? I don’t know why they didn’t select me at random. But, it is fine a person from Louisiana got in that I do not know. But, he is not contributing to my education . Unigo should not have to beg me to write for a scholarship. We still make grammatical errors , but then grammar does not matter because we have tools to fix our problems.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

Stanford, the iconic epitome of elite education and dream school of thousands, and rightfully so. The beautiful campus draws thousands of tourists, and the university presents itself with an aura of prestige and world-class education. In the midst of the sunny Bay Area, on a campus where students jump in fountains in their free time and sunbathe out on the lawns peppered with palm trees, Stanford almost seems like the perfect paradise. It isn't, though. The infamous Duck Syndrome makes its way through the student population--a term coined to represent the seemingly peaceful duck floating atop the water, while its furiously paddling feet are hidden under the water. The rigor of classes combined with the feeling of needing to appear perfect wears down on the mental health of students. Such is the culture of such an elite university--any flaw that it seems to have must be covered up in order to perpetuate this image of prestige, such that many students often initially feel that they do not belong here, or are lacking in many ways compared to their peers. However, Stanford students tend to be welcoming and appreciative of diversity, and that is one thing I appreciate. Students are very vocal in their opinions and engage in intellectual conversations regularly. Activism is constantly seen throughout campus. Professors and teachers also tend to be accessible and willing to help. In my experiences, office hours with TAs and professors have been extremely helpful. Most people are understanding of the rigor of the academics, and are non-judgmental in giving help.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

There's a reason this is everyone's dream school. Stanford puts incredible effort into making its students comfortable in every non-academic aspect so that they can focus on growing intellectually. The food, the housing, the weather, everything is in place to make sure you're happy and healthy.

Overall its a great place to be and study. There is something to do for everyone and anybody can find an intellectual pursuit they enjoy. Stanford has an awesome weather too and everybody enjoys it outside playing sports recreatively or doing fun activities.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

Stanford has provided me with opportunities galore, a community of students who are invigorated to learn, professors who are at the top of their fields, and a place to work hard but enjoy my weekends and social activities. Courses are rigorous and fast paced but professors are willing to help and be accommodating, and there are many services and tutoring to get help if needed. I love this place! It's beautiful, and every person I meet is so diverse, truly bringing something special to the campus.
