My son Alex is a sophomore in high school and is determined to go to a really, good college. Since we were driving down through San Francisco I decided we should take a tour at Stanford University. I wish we could have toured a few other colleges in that area but I was on a tight schedule and we had to get to the Monterey aquarium by at least three o'clock.
Stanford has such a beautiful campus. We went on a tour, that was lead by one of the students, which lasted about 2 hours. Alex loved the school. There's just one problem, out of the over 36,000 applications Stanford gets; only 2427 got admitted this year! Yikes!
