A very prestigious university situated in the heart of Silicon Valley. Stanford rocks infinitely more than Harvard or MIT in the humanities, sciences, engineering, and especially life in general. Great exit opportunities, cutting edge research, and first-rate academics are just a few of the benefits at Stanford. It is the most complete university out there, and may very well be the quintessential school for the 21st century.
MIT student: Stanford is easy as hell. Its Computer Science classes cannot compare to our intense 6.170 and its biology classes remind me of home ec.
Stanford student: Pssh...when all is said and done, just know that at the end of the day I will have better grades, better employment opportunities, better connections, and better friends than douchebags like you. You'll have to lie on your resume just to be as employable as me.
