    Stanford is an incredible place. It has the best research opportunities and economics in the world, and its arts facilities are exceptional and quickly becoming the best in the world as well. This unique experience is worth any amount of work done in high school to achieve it.

    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.

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.
