The freshman class is beginning to take shape, with acceptance offers sent to high school students from 47 states and 31 countries. Stanford has sent acceptance letters to 743 high school students who sought admission to the Class of 2019 under the university’s early admission program, the Office of Undergraduate Admission announced today.
When I first came to Stanford, I thought I had it all figured out. My life was governed by a set of expectations and beliefs that I had built up slowly over time, in much the same way that we rationalize the universe through scientific laws that have stood the test of time. As a senior looking back on my little freshman self, I am amazed at how many of these conceptions – having planted themselves upon the doormat of Stanford – were promptly blown off their feet. Here I present to you the ten most spectacularly rejected ones.
It’s the start of a new year here on the Farm, and that means new classes, new dorms, and a big switch from life at home during the summer with family to life on campus surrounded by amazing students and faculty.
