Stanford vs Harvard Kids
I know these are two of the most selective schools in the country. But I was wondering if there's a common thread between the kids that get accepted to Stanford as opposed to Harvard. I have heard that Stanford likes kids that are "different" and I use that term in quotes because it's not that they're not brilliant, but perhaps their achievements are more unique and stick out a bit where Harvard kids have won national type of awards, etc... not saying Stanford kids haven't.43 replies
