<p>I saw the following message, copy-pasted from an official email, in another thread.</p>
We have received nearly 25,000 applications for admission (the largest in Stanford's history), which means that we will be able to offer admission to just 10% of those students who have applied.
Considering how they only let in about 20 transfers last year (which was already an all-time low) can we expect the cut-off to be even harsher this year? Is it likely that they'll pull a Harvard and not admit any transfers, or will the number of transfers fit on one hand?
<p>A lot of people had assumed that the number of transfers would regulate itself back to the 80+ norm of previous years, but with this new piece of info I'm definitely alarmed at the outcome. And by alarmed I mean ****ting myself a thick pair of brown slackers.</p>
