At this time last April, I was in the midst of a whirlwind of college visits, class sit-ins and long deliberations over which school to ultimately attend.

These students, joined by the 750 who were accepted under the restrictive early action program in December, make up a total of 2,040 total students admitted to the incoming class. At 4.3 percent, this year’s admission rate is the lowest in Stanford’s history, down from 4.65 percent last year.
Most students have accepted an inevitable downward trend as the University grows more prestigious. As usual, some speculated that the mistake-admission rate would eventually fall to zero.
