Questions regarding Stanford Admissions/Stanford Life
Hello fellow CC members,
I wanted to reach out to students who are currently attending Stanford. This fall I will be entering my senior year, and I have a few questions regarding Stanford as it is definitely my first choice.
Question 1: Stanford now has a 4.7% acceptance rate. Although I am a good student overall, I wouldn't consider myself a genius. Thus, I was wondering if you need to be incredibly intelligent to do well at Stanford, or if it is mostly hard work that will allow you to do so.
Question 2: What is the competition like? After reading some posts on CC, I feel as though a majority of the students are very modest.
Question 3: How is the work load? I understand there are other posts that can answer a question like this; however, I was wondering whether some of you Stanford students can give me an example of your daily routine and how you manage your time.
