Stanford is a great college.BrightZoology
Stanford is a great college. I've dreamt of attending it all my life and now I'm almost graduated. All of you haters, shut up! Seriously, the only reason you're even trashing the place is probably because you have no friends, bad grades, and nothing to look forward to. But, I will advise you to be careful when choosing who you want to be friends with, because you could be entering the wrong group for you.

I enjoyed my years at Stanford and am definately coming back to get my science degree. Stanford has done so much for me; raised my confidence, set my future, and shown me that I can achieve the best. If all of you sad, sorry, babies would just suck it up and do the coursework maybe you wouldn't be so damn moody about the school. So just freaking shut up and get through it.I swear, some people be using this website like a diary.

Although I graduated back in 1978, I continue to visit StanSuper BrilliantBiology
Although I graduated back in 1978, I continue to visit Stanford frequently. My four years there were the most fun, the most exhilarating, and the most maturing of my life.

I find the current students to be friendly and happy. They almost uniformly express their appreciation for the chance to attend Stanford. All of the alumni I know have a feeling of intense loyalty to the school.

I LOVE my school.Quite BrightUndecided
I LOVE my school...but it's a challenge. I'm challenged every single day, and while it is easy to slip and let work just slide, it really hurts you. The quarter system goes fast and while it has its advantages, it doesn't leave much time for catching up. You have to stay on top of your work and you have to be independent. The school, people, environment, and everything associated with it are amazing. When I get the time, I look around and I note just how great my experiences here are and just how vast the opportunities are for students. Everyone is brilliant in their own way here and it creates an atmosphere that is unparalleled. I know that my education is preparing me for life, and though I do find myself struggling, I know I will look back on my days here with nothing but gratitude and positive reminiscence. There really is no other place like it. I feel absolutely privileged to be able to go to school here.
