    Stanford University is an amazing institution and filled with myriad opportunities for students of all types. It's quarter system ensures that one is nearly always in mid terms or finals; and thus it is most rigorous. It's like taking a drink of water out of a fire hose.

    I found it amazing that you don't have to choose a major until you're in your junior year. On top of that, most people qualify for at least $30,000 in grants. This is definitely one of the top schools on my list!
