I loved Stanford, although my experience, at least the social side, was a bit different than many. Being a granola-type, I lived in one of the international houses (Haus Mitteleuropa) and later in the vegetarian-concensus house (Columbae). The friends and community I gained there has stayed with me throughout the years. Also the skills I gained in a house devoted to concensus decision-making have helped me tremendously in my roles as team-leader and board chair.

Academically, I got a lot out of Stanford, but I got this primarily from the Mechanical Engineering dept (I doubled in Bio and ME). The ME dept was great and was really focused on undergrads. Frankly, the Bio dept courses sucked and the Bio faculty seemed determined to avoid undergrads, but I made a real and 'undeterable' effort to do independent projects with the professors and got a lot out of those experiences.
