    Chill out. This isn't an Ivy, no matter what media says. The reason Stanford is great at what it does is because students aren't worried about beating each other, but collaborating and seeing each other succeed. Collaboration is key.

    If you are planning to get into this university, you must be prepared to learn. You must love learning not because of the money, fame, attention, or good job, but because you open your mind to learn things every time you have the opportunity to.

    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.
