Ooops: Princeton, Yale, Stanford, Cornell

What say you regarding a true scientist? We've read all that is online, and each offers its own opportunities. DD will visit, but I don't like what I don't know (a normal dad). Any students/alumni that have been there and done that . . . willing to give a bit of advice, please? Thanks in advance!

    My D appreciates that Stanford believes in interdepartmental collaboration, which leads to some pretty exciting research, and innovative ideas, discoveries, and inventions.

    Thanks TheGFG! I'm really appreciative of the input from those that KNOW. She'll visit, or course, but we do need some heads-up on what to look for specifically (good and bad). Thanks.

    They're all great schools. I know students at all (except Yale), and all of them have been satisfied. Let your daughter decide for herself. Sheesh.

    Thanks Slorg. She will. Now, if you don't mind, tell what is not so great at Stanford if you have attended. Thanks.
