I went to Stanford, and I absolutely loved it! The people I met there were amazing and really changed my worldview. I am in graduate school, and after having met students from other top colleges in the country, began appreciating my Stanford experience even more. I think Stanford is best for students who can figure their own way and don't need a lot of handholding. The advising structure isn't well set up, but I thrived on my own, so it didn't matter to me. The housing is great, especially if you can get into a Row House (like I did). The university encourages overseas studies, and there are programs all over the world and more opening up. Residential education is more complete than almost any other university. And the policies about discipline/alcohol were laissez-faire when I went there, although I hear it's changing. The good weather helps too. Overall, I had a brilliant run of my college years!
