" The environment is not too competitive, it is more like you are competing with yourself. I think overall you get a lot out of any college/university you go to, but with Stanford, you meet a lot of really interesting people and can choose to have a lot of experiences in entrepreneurship that you wouldn't get other places, especially with the school being in the hub of silicon valley.

" Competition is pretty manageable and less than expected. project work assigned is quite difficult and debugging can take up all your time. A lot of research opportunities are available and internships are relatively easy to come by. "

" I enjoyed my time at Stanford, but the options for off campus housing were extremely limited (both by price and availability). Obviously it’s an amazing school with excellent facilities and outstanding professors, but the social scene is limited by the on-campus housing. "
