The decision on whether to come to Stanford is yours and yours alone.
We’re glad it’s your turn, Class of 2016, so here are a few tips to make sure you get the most out of your Admit Weekend experience:
But no matter what your parents and college counselors and all your rejected peers may think, Stanford isn’t perfect, at least not for everyone.
As Admit Weekend approaches and over 1,000 prospective freshmen (ProFros) are soon to descend on the Farm, The Daily took a look back at the history of Admit Weekend.
Until this year, Admit Weekends always unsettled me. Don’t get me wrong, I always wanted the ProFros (Prospective Frosh) to like their Admit Weekend as much as I had so that they would choose the best school in the country, but there was something that always got to me, just a little.
The 1,190 prospective freshmen that attended Stanford’s Admit Weekend this past weekend have until 5 p.m. today to decide whether they will join Stanford’s Class of 2015.
On the surface, I’m writing this column to convince one of my best friends to pick Stanford over Yale and Harvard (how’s that for subtlety, Rachel?), but beyond that, this column is for every Stanford ProFro who is currently undecided about where to spend the next four years of his or her life. I can sympathize with the nervousness about having to choose by May 1. Fortunately for me, Stanford’s Admit Weekend 2010 ended on April 24 — a full week before the deadline. But fortunately for you, Class of 2015, I didn’t decide until April 30, either, so we’re essentially in the same boat.
Despite initial concerns regarding the larger than expected number of ProFros (prospective freshmen) on campus for Admit Weekend, those involved with the event generally gave positive feedback.
