How I Got Into StanfordeBook - 2012
Let's face it: competition these days is stiff. More high school seniors are applying to college than ever before. The increased competition means greater numbers of eager students stuck with envelopes delivering a quick thanks-but-no-thanks rejection. Maybe you didn't know exactly what you wanted from your college experience the first time you applied, or you've done extremely well at a local school and are ready to swim in a sea worthy of your talent. Maybe going to Stanford is your dream, and you can't give up on receiving that diploma quite yet. Applying as a transfer student allows the school admissions to have another look at you, and presents you in a different pool of applicants. Every year, worthy applicants are turned away simply because of the limited capacity of the class. Still, transferring is tricky business. Transfer admission is even more competitive than admission to the freshman class. Recently, there have only been between 20 and 40 transfer students admitted each year. The year I transferred, the number was fewer than 20. This is partially because the students at Stanford are too darn happy: student retention rate at the school is typically 98%.
