    Be sure this type of atmosphere is for you before making it a goal to come here. If you come here, everyone seems cool, calm and collected ... that's the Stanford way, it's call duck syndrome which means floating on top and paddling like mad below.

    Just be yourself, think about how Stanford is a match for you as much as you think about if you are a match for Stanford, because if you try really hard to get into a school where you don't belong, you aren't going to be happy or feel like you fit in there. That being said, Stanford is a very inclusive environment and everyone is very friendly, if you are a hardworking student who also likes to lay back and enjoy the California sunshine it's probably a great place for you to be.

    Work hard in all your classes and get involved. Take standardized tests more than once to get your best possible score. Make sure you have a teacher look over your essays for grammatical errors and other improvements.

    Be well-rounded. Don't just be the top of your class in academics. Play sports, conduct community service, start a small business, make your own movies, dance, sing, paint, and participate in church activities. Be as different, but as respectful, as possible so that when you get to this university, you contribute to the wonderful family we have here.

    Apply early if you are really sure Stanford is your top choice. It is a great feeling to have your matriculation settled in December. Get to understand the culture of each college you apply to. Just because someone loves a certain school does not mean you will love it too. If you cannot visit the campus, try to reach out to a diverse group of students currently attending it. I say diverse so you can gain a comprehensive understanding of the school's culture and student body. The college process is overwhelming, but ask for help whenever you need it. Guidance from experienced students is extremely helpful and more accessible than you think it is.
