Subscribe to be notified when I share my accepted Stanford essays :) MY STATS: I applied Regular Decision, not Early Action SAT: 2130 | ACT: 30 | GPA: 4.0UW and 4.8W SAT II: 650 USH and 720 BIO (my stats suck, I know.) I just wanted to share the stuff that I wish I knew before I started the process a year ago! These are my tips and advice to get into Stanford, Ivies, and other top schools especially when you don't have the cure for cancer, the last name Obama, or any Nobel Peace Prizes (yet). The one thing I hate the most is the "college prep/admissions" industry because not everyone can afford essay readers, private counselors, or SAT tutors (I know I couldn't). So this is my little way of helping out other high schoolers navigate the process on their own and get into some amazi...
New research shows people in underdeveloped parts of the world are not as likely to complete massive open online courses, or MOOCs. But small psychological activities could help motivate them, closing the global achievement gap.
People tend to grossly underestimate how likely others are to agree to requests for help. And many don't know how to ask for help. They also overestimate how many people will come to them for help. Francis Flynn presented at the "Small Steps, Big Leaps: The Science of Getting People to Do the Right Thing" research briefing at the Stanford Graduate School of Business, co-sponsored by the Center for Social Innovation.

Shannon Turley, sports performance director of Stanford Football discusses the benefits of a yoga practice for competitive athletes. Though other coaches have teased Turley and his "alternative" tactics, Turley stands firm that yoga, the breath, and mindfulness is part of his team's special sauce that not only helps them win, but helps improve player morale on and off the field. Mobility, strength, and posture have all improved for Stanford's players since implementing yoga into the training curriculum.

Professor Ng delves into locally weighted regression, probabilistic interpretation and logistic regression and how it relates to machine learning. This course provides a broad introduction to machine learning and statistical pattern recognition. Topics include supervised learning, unsupervised learning, learning theory, reinforcement learning and adaptive control. Recent applications of machine learning, such as to robotic control, data mining, autonomous navigation, bioinformatics, speech recognition, and text and web data processing are also discussed.

I wanted to put my Nvidia Pascal Titan X cards to go use by helping Stanford university collect data on protein folding. Anyone with a computer or even an Android cellphone can donate cycles to this protein folding simulation called Folding@Home and help get closer to a cure for Cancer's, Alzheimer, Parkinson's, Huntington's and many other horrible diseases that are caused by protein folding abnormalities. ▼ Updates▼ 9/4/16 - Getting flooded with emails from other teams wondering how we're climbing so fast, I link them this video :D 9/6/16 - We're now the #1 team in the world for active users! 9/6/16 - We're now the #2 team in the world for daily processing power! 9/6/16 - We're now the #147th team overall in the world! 9/8/16 - We just passed 1,000,000,000 points! 9/19/16 - We just pas...
President John Hennessy and four Stanford students - from China, India, Pakistan, and the Czech Republic - discuss the financial challenges of getting to Stanford and the incredible experiences they've enjoyed with help from scholarship donors. Funding more Stanford scholarships for undergraduates from outside the United States helps them broaden their horizons, perhaps even shape the future of their home countries. Equally important, their presence on campus helps all Stanford students gain an education that is truly world class. Recorded 2007.

Help us caption and translate this video on Amara.org: http://www.amara.org/en/v/BAtM/ (September 20, 2010) Leonard Susskind gives a lecture on the string theory and particle physics. He is a world renown theoretical physicist and uses graphs to help demonstrate the theories he is presenting. String theory (with its close relative, M-theory) is the basis for the most ambitious theories of the physical world. It has profoundly influenced our understanding of gravity, cosmology, and particle physics. In this course we will develop the basic theoretical and mathematical ideas, including the string-theoretic origin of gravity, the theory of extra dimensions of space, the connection between strings and black holes, the "landscape" of string theory, and the holographic principle.

Stanford Law School's Project ReMADE is a pro bono boot camp for formerly incarcerated people seeking to start their own businesses. Now in its fifth year, the 12-week program teaches basic business skills to aspiring entrepreneurs and helps them build the social capital needed to launch and sustain their enterprises. Students from Stanford's Law School and Graduate School of Business lead biweekly classes on topics ranging from accounting and marketing to negotiations and public speaking. Additionally, entrepreneurs meet with student mentors and Silicon Valley professionals to develop individualized business plans. At the program's end, the new entrepreneurs present their business plans to a panel of executives from local micro-development organizations. For more information: http://proj...

Just off a plane from Africa, Bill Gates visits Stanford to talk about innovation, but not the software kind. Scientists and engineers, he said, need to focus on products that help improve the lives of the world's poor even though the market directs people to help the wealthiest.
