Facts & Statistics

Tips for Getting In
  • Be unique; don't follow the regular high school crowd. Do you!
  • Be yourself.
  • Have awesome essays.
  • Take challenging high school classes.
  • Talk about your passions in the application.
Things I Wish I Knew Before Coming To School
  • For most classes, you can collaborate with others on problem sets and assignments.
  • Friends don't always make the best roommates.
  • Get a bike! Stanford is the second largest campus in the world; you need something to get around.
  • Prerequisites for classes are not enforced; take whatever you want, if you can handle the work.
  • Stanford is on the quarter system. You will have three final periods, one every 10 weeks.
  • You will skip 9 a.m. classes.
Interviews & Information Sessions
Call the Office of Undergraduate Admission to make a reservation, at (650) 723-2091. Stanford does not do interviews of any sort for undergraduate admission.
Campus Tours
Free tours are available twice a day, seven days a week. Tours depart from the Stanford Visitor Center in Memorial Auditorium at 11 a.m. and 3:15 p.m. Tours are offered year-round, except during the winter holiday break and certain holidays. For more information, call (650) 723-2560 or e-mail
Overnight Visits
Stanford does not provide formal overnight visits for prospective applicants, except in the case of athletic or diversity recruitment (if you have friends or family who attend the University, you can definitely come and visit them to get a sense of the school). However, if you are admitted to Stanford, you can, and should, come to Admit Weekend in mid-April. About 800 prospective freshmen (ProFros) come to Admit Weekend to check out Stanford and stay in the dorms from Thursday to Sunday. Keep in mind: this is Stanford's way to convince you to come to the school, and most people will be trying hard to make the place seem perfect. Still, you will have a great time and get a good feel of the campus in order to make your final college decision.
