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...
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.

Your body hosts literally trillions of organisms—bacteria, fungi, viruses, and other tiny life forms—that collectively make up your microbiome. But what does your microbiome do, and how can it affect your health? Dr. Sonnenburg, bestselling author of The Good Gut, will explain the link between our Western diet and chronic illness. He’ll also suggest ways you can take back the reins and restore your health through diet and lifestyle. Presentation by Justin Sonnenburg, PhD, Associate Professor of Microbiology and Immunology
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.

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.
