Pros

Stanford is the place to come if you want to push yourself to the next level. You get to work with world class people on cutting edge projects. Creativity, science, technology, and entrepreneurship are at the forefront in the Mechanical Engineering department.

Cons

It can be intimidating to be at Stanford at first. There is not a lot of guidance in finding what is right for you. But there are so many different opportunities. As with any big university, there is also a lot of bureaucracy.

Advice to Management

There could be more to help grad students navigate the complex bureaucracy around housing, funding, and paperwork for graduation. Stanford leadership is out to change the world, and rightly so, but I would also love to see Stanford make a more concerted effort to have a meaningful impact in the local community.
