Stanford University is fantastic at offering students every possibility for research and post-grad work. You are certainly challenged daily on performance however, there are many doors open for you to succeed.
Yes the courses were engaging and very useful they are useful for the career that everyday people are choosing to do everywhere i went and every student that graduated from Stanford University only said good things about the University I even thought they were lying but at the same time thought that it was true so then I decided to try to check out the University i went for 1 month to see if it was a good University but you don't believe it but it was true i was amazed and surprised of how good that University really was that i stayed at the collage and now am in i really recomened people to go to this University you wont regret it .
