" Amazing Campus with engaging classes and incredible people. There’s a reason it’s one of the best universities on earth. The staff are always accommodating and there’s pretty decent on campus housing. At times there might be a lack of large social activities, but as long as you manage to make a friend group you’ll be alright. There are definitely better party schools out there, but if you’re considering Stanford your biggest focus is probably on your education. Definitely recommended. "

" Though I only just started here, I already enjoy myself tremendously. The lack of required courses means that I can dabble in all sorts of disciplines unrelated to my intended major. This, in combination to the plethora of talk and activities on campus, results in an interdisciplinary cross fertilization unlike anywhere I’ve ever been. Additionally, as a byproduct of the immense freedom you are afforded, your Stanford experience can really be whatever you want it to be. "

" Very unique academic opportunities due to the interdisciplinary nature of the research. This enables unique innovations that would not be possible with more traditional department structures. The biggest academic drawback is the over-emphasis on engineering. "

" I was in the MBA program. The biggest highlight was the people: my classmates were incredibly inspiring, kind, smart and ambitious and the professors and faculty were deeply supportive, knowledgeable and experienced. I would do it over and over again in a heartbeat. "
