Students insist that Stanford is “the most amazing school in the country, with a great mix of academics, athletics, and weather,” and it’s hard to argue with them. The school really does offer it all to the laid-back-but-ambitious crowd lucky enough to receive an invite to attend; as one student puts it, “Stanford essentially disproves the theorem that if it sounds too good to be true, it probably is.” Undergrads here “can and are able to do so much.” Take, for example, the anthropology major who reported “great opportunities such as researching over the summer in the Peruvian Amazon and working with the Center for Ecotourism and Sustainable Development to create a network of indigenous leaders interested in ecotourism.” Or the myriad of super-curious here who extol “the many interdisciplinary majors: human biology; history, literature, and the arts; materials science and engineering; symbolic systems; science technology and society; public policy; modern thought and literature; urban studies.… It’s amazing how many different fields you can combine.” And perhaps best of all, “there is not any counter productive cut-throat competition. Staff and students are all very supportive of each other, and it’s really an environment where you can explore and succeed.”
