    I'm from the UK and doing post graduate studies in the United States at Stanford. Stanford is a good school with a lot of opportunity, but it's a tad below Cambridge, Oxford, Princeton and Harvard . Overall though the environment is good. s efforts to admit students from all kinds of financial backgrounds. I have to say don? t bother coming majority of my peers at Stanford are rich, here if you daddy isn? t a doctor. I? m the first out of my family to go to college so I? m pretty poor and broke.

    Stanford is less elitist than HYP, but makes up for it with tech startup elitism. Physical sciences and STEM are dominant here, and anything humanities- or sometimes even social sciences-related is regarded as second-tier by many students. Socially, I feel as though many love it but if you're asocial it's a difficult 4 years. Mixed feelings. The professors are mediocre they can research, but they can't really teach. I am slightly disappointed by my selection to go here rather than Harvard, Yale, or Princeton. ...Continue reading

    It is the best school in the world. If wild is your most important criteria, you should go elsewhere though, of course, any place is as wild as you make it.
