Major: Computer Science (This Major's Salary over time)
I had a ton of choices at the end of my senior year…one year later, I can be confident in saying that I picked the right school. The campus is beautiful and the people are from everywhere and very nice.

My first computer science class was sort of a make or break experiment—did I like programming? Did I like the department, etc. But my professor was great-funny, engaging, and informative-and my TA was also very accessible and helpful. Just like the name suggests, TAs never TEACH a class at Stanford. Instead, they help convey complex ideas and thoughts in a smaller setting that's more conducive to questions.

The only thing I really don't like about Stanford is the town—Pallo Alto. It's so boring and upscale. It really makes me miss my hometown.

Be sure to get involved, though, and you'll never be bored. There's so much to see and do on campus.
