    Prestigious, yes. Competitive, definitely. Worthwhile, can't say.

    One of the most respected, rigorous, and valued schools for Engineering. If I had the money to go, I would.

    I am only a high school junior but I have my hopes set on this school. I hear it is the best business school in the US. Could anyone verify this information for me?

    Tried to get a job with a CS degree out of Stanford, was turned down and they hired a Cal student instead. Reason was that the never taught us what P and NP was. Stanford education sucks.

    Stanford has been my dream school for as long as I can remember, and once I visited the campus last summer, my desire was confirmed. It meets nearly every requirement on my list and the overall atmosphere was exactly what I was looking for. Every one was extremely helpful and I was able to talk with someone from the admissions office to answer a few questions that I still had after the tour.

    I absolutely fell in love with Stanford's campus as soon as I visited--I'm dying to be able to attend this school. Is there anything specific that Stanford really is stringent on during the application process? Thanks!

    Stanford felt like a new family. The most amazing thing was that everyone there just accepts you for who you are. The weather and the people are beautiful and sunny and warm.
