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).

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.
