I'm a third year undergrad at Stanford, and boy has this place turned me into a walking pile of sit. I hate how snotty the students are. I hate the crappy dining hall food. I hate the fact that everyone single one of my classes is techy. I hate the fast pace of the quarter system. I hate handing my parents' money to go to a school I hate. I hate the blandness of the students, the faculty, and the city that is Palo Alto and the Silicon Valley. I hate how no one cares about anything except career advancement and social status. I hate how no one respects privacy. I hate how impersonal the people are and how no one is willing to share their troubles. I hate the snottiness of the students. I hate the fact that everyone came from the top of their high school class. I hate that there is no school spirit. Well, that about sums it up; good luck to all who choose this school.

This is a terrible place and no one cares about the students. Many students are miserable, but only say it to a few friends because everyone is supposed to be happy here. The counseling center is completely swamped - so many students are unhappy that it takes 3 weeks to get an appointment. Not very helpful if a student is in crisis. The University doesn't seem to care. They spend money on warming and watering their palm trees - not on students.Professors only care about their published reputation or getting rich from their latest start up. If you want a good education, and want to meet nice students and learn from them, DO NOT GO HERE.

No one should go here - the professors only care about their latest start up, students only get in the way. The bureaucracy is incredible - you have to apply to do anything and the administration doesn't listen. After all, they are Stanford! They don't care - they have the name and rep. So many students are miserable, but don't want to admit it since they are supposed to be at such a great place. There is really nothing good to say about this place.
