" Great School! Professional Professor.Would recommend if you're interested in Machine Learning. The class is small so you can always ask for assistance and professors are often very engaging in class. Class activities are always fun and you're surrounded by very motivated and varied people --each with their own interests. "

" Stanford is...Stanford. The culture is what you would think of a highly selective top university. It can be easy to get overwhelmed here, with all the super smart people launching their own companies and joining Silicon Valley straight out of school. It's less blatantly elitist than the East Coast Ivy's, especially given its generous financial aid package. This means that you'll have the opportunity to interact with a huge amount of diverse people (socioeconomic, race, ethnicity, LGBTQ), which appeals to many. But it's also easy to lose yourself in the bubble of privilege. It's a huge school, so expect less personalized attention. It's mechanical engineering department leans towards robotics/product design. There are other university departments that better prepare you for industry (taking the FE exam, CAD/FEA skills, co-op's, internships), for sure. Nonetheless, the Stanford name brand is powerful, so even if the mechanical education you get isn't the most comprehensive or hands-on, it well fulfills its purpose of landing you a post-undergraduate job.
