Early Deadline Coming Up for Stanford University on November 1

stanfordColleges really want to get to know you during the college application process, and it's also a great opportunity for students to get to know themselves better! There are so many changes going on both on the inside and on the outside, that taking a moment to check in with yourself can get easily overlooked. College essays force you to look within, some use a more subtle method, and others in a much more deep and obvious way.

If you're applying to Stanford, it can be quite clear that the school wants to learn about you and what makes you tick. Take a look at some of Stanford's questions below.
