Hello everyone and anyone, I will be attending CSSSI at Stanford this year and I'm super excited. I am currently a sophomore in high school and I want meet other who got in and are planning to attend. I also want to learn about its competitiveness (maybe even the acceptance rate)? Sorry I just want more info on this program (probably from alumni or current students) but haven't found any recent discussions about it

    Did you find out about the progam competitiveness? I’ve heard its acceptance rate was about 15%, but I’m not sure. However, I guess there were more applicants than usual this year, therefore they created a 3 session. I don’t know how it is this year.

    @MatheusSM No, I haven't. I also read that same stat in a different thread on CC (I think) but I'm also not sure. But you're right, they must have created a third session for a reason.

    In my acceptance letter they also said “this year we have had a strong applicant pool with an overwhelming number of qualified of students from countries throughout the world”

    @MatheusSM Right after that in the letter, they even bothered to claim that "due to space
    limitations, we are only able to accept a limited number of students, so consider yourself part of an elite
    few."

    They didn’t send anything to study before going right?

    Hey everyone! Little late, but for the future years.

    I attended the program a couple of years ago, and I still keep in contact with the staff. I had an amazing time and would absolutely recommend it.

    However, also I wanted to let people know that the program recently changed ownership and the quality has gone down significantly. From what I can tell, while in the past it was part of the curriculum to perform surgery, now according to the website you 'gain exposure' to surgery, which I think is considerably different.

    Some of the staff also said that the new owners have never actually been involved in the program before (aka so they won't know how to run things), and the program isn't going to be taught by surgeons and medical students anymore.

    The owners started a new program in Maui instead (called AAMS) - i did it last year and had an absolute blast! Highly recommend for anyone interested in surgery!!

    Just thought I'd share this information since the Stanford program is still charging the same amount of money, but now you get way less out of it :(
