The college is great overall for undergraduate and graduate studies. I would definitely recommend students to apply. They have an alive social clubs and activities around the campus.

School is big and impersonal in the CS dept. Sometimes there is an overemphasis on work over learning. Overall, however, courses are well taught and my comrades are interested and intelligent.

Stanford has been difficult, but rewarding. Sometimes, however, it feels like University-sanctioned services intentionally rip-off students which is why I have underrated affordability of living. It is also often hard to get off of campus, and there is not much to do off of campus in the immediate surrounding area.

Degree: Computer Science
Graduation Year: 2016

The pros are that it's one of the best universities world-wide, it has the best professors and the most advanced research groups, it receives all the attention from the industry and it collects the best students from the whole world. The cons are that they expect you to compete at best of your strenght all the time, and everyone is ready to pass you and leave you behind. In a friendly way, sure, no backstabbing or anything, and the faculty and staff is available for help, but in the end you're on your own and if you stop it's your fault. Also, it's very expensive and it is in a very expensive area. But hopefully it will be worth it.
