This fall the Office of Undergraduate Admission is expected to maintain the status quo — save for two main changes. The office will bring on board a newly revamped admission staff after losing seven admission officers this year, and will decide whether or not to put a random auditing system in place.
While some applicants to Stanford got word Saturday of their admission to the Farm, others had already received a subtle nod via a “likely letter”–a practice common to several of America’s elite colleges. Of Stanford’s approximate 32,000 applicants this year, less than one percent of the pool received such a letter, according to Director of Admission Shawn Abbott.
