- A university dominated by women.
- People pretend others are invisible here (extends to the Bay Area as a whole).
- You might learn better at another university while finding it easier to get good grades.
- Don't fall for the college marketing scam.- You are more likely to enjoy this school if you went to a private high school or high school in NorCal.
pretty sure I made a terrible decision coming to Stanford. i would not come here if I had the chance again. should have heeded the warning signs and transferred. I thought the name of the school would be worth it, but I really, really, don't want to be associated with this school when I graduate, so I guess I've lost at everything here, except one-dimensional absorption of test-taking-knowledge
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.
