Stanford University

In 1876, California Governor Leland Stanford purchased 650 acres for a country home and began the development of his famous Palo Alto Stock Farm.

Stanford University is located between San Francisco and San Jose in the heart of California's Silicon Valley. Stanford is one of the world's leading teaching and research universities. Leland Stanford, who grew up and studied law in New York, moved West after the gold rush. Later on, the Stanford's engaged Frederick Law Olmsted, the famed landscape architect who created New York’s Central Park, to design the physical plan for the university.

Persuasive Essay

       Ever since I was five, I was a huge fan of justice in crime. I loved the action and movies made about law enforcement. Basically I was born for the job. However, I would like to attend Stanford University because of its programs in law enforcement and criminal justice.

          I attended Pebble Hills High School from 2014 - 2018, and was part of top 1%. The AVID program helped me be organized and get the best grades possible. As the president of NHS, we did a lot of community service involving children and more.Further more i have outstanding leadership skills as well as communication skills.

        Personally i would like to get accepted at Stanford University, and be part of the Trees. It has been my dream to graduate from a major important school like Stanford. Even though the acceptance level is bellow 22%, i know i am capable to take o the Stanford challenge.

       Finally i would really appreciate if i could get accepted in to such a prestige school, and graduate with honors. The competition is really rough, and i know i am not the only one with the dream of graduating from Stanford, but i would like the help needed to achieve that dream.
