Yusi “Molly” Zhao, daughter of Chinese pharma billionaire Tao Zhao, was admitted into Stanford in the spring of 2017 with Singer’s help. No one in the family has been formally charged in the scandal.
When talking to Christine Liu, I often found myself forgetting that she’s still only a sophomore at Stanford. Looking back, it’s not hard to see why.
For starters, she’s got a resume to make even the most draconian of tiger parents proud, boasting a published scientific paper (with another one in review), a startup, and an international science fair medal — all by the age of 19. Her winning science fair project, a machine learning algorithm for predicting epileptic seizures, has the potential to radically change the way we approach epilepsy health care. Yet, what stood out the most, above and beyond her myriad accomplishments, was a very distinct sense of maturity, of wisdom beyond her years. There’s a purpose to her ambition, one rooted in personal experience and a deeply intrinsic desire to succeed — maturity was simply a requisite.

Two Swedish graduate students, Carl-Fredrik Arndt and Peter Jonsson, were biking through the Stanford University campus one night in January 2015 when they came across Brock Turner and his victim.
The two friends had a gut feeling that something was wrong when they saw Turner, a Stanford freshman swimmer, and an unconscious woman behind a dumpster. Turner, now 20, was consequently convicted on three charges of sexual assault and sentenced to six-months prison time by California judge Aaron Persky.

Another letter, this time by a woman, has been written in defense of the former Stanford swimmer who was found guilty of sexually assaulting an unconscious 23-year-old woman behind a dumpster of a campus frat party.

High-school senior Brittany Stinson shared a personal statement that subsequently got her admitted into five Ivy League schools and Stanford.
The achievement is quite impressive seeing how Stanford, the “Ivy League of the West,” had a lower acceptance rate than any Ivy League at 4.69%. Stinson, who was accepted into prestigious universities including Yale, Columbia, University of Pennsylvania, Dartmouth and Cornell, told Business Insider:
Quick, grab a savvy individual on the job hunt or who’s looking to get ahead, and ask them what’s the most important factor behind landing the right gig.

So you owe it to yourself to make the best connections, and to find the right people who are going to help you get where you need to be. GraduatePrograms.com agrees, which is why they surveyed 10,000 former and current business school students to identify which schools have the strongest networks.
For the last couple of years, Snapchat has been working hard to lure students from top computer science programs by offering them more money than most recent graduates could ever dream of earning.
