What are requirements to get to Stanford University?

QUESTION
What are requirements to get to Stanford University?
What’s the certain amount of volunteer work, gpa, sat and act scores, acitvitys, clubs and advanced classes, that stanford requires?

ANSWER
I don’t really like private universities, because there are so many great public schools that are much more reasonably priced … especially in California! But since you asked, here’s what Stanford is looking for:

Application Essay
SAT is required (scores between 1800 – 2250)
SAT Subject Tests are optional, but highly recommended
High class rank (85th percentile and up)
High GPA (3.5+)
A LOT OF MONEY FOR TUITION.

There are no specific requirements for volunteer hours, activities, clubs, or advanced classes. They do, however, prefer applicants to have completed a number of volunteer hours and to have had a rigorous high school curriculum.

Hope this helps!
