Students are self-centered and never do what theyBrightMechanical Engineering
Students are self-centered and never do what they say they will (for group projects, clubs). Professors don't care about students - often don't show up for classes. All they are working on is their research or latest start up. The administration only cares about their reputation. It is a miserable place but no one will admit it because its supposed to be so wonderful. Don't come here!

- A university dominated by women.Sociology
- 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.

Question
Pretty sure I made a terrible decision comingComputer Science
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
