Hurricane Sandy will get nowhere near Stanford's California campus, but the prestigious West Coast university recognizes the hardships faced by East Coast applicants. As a result, Stanford has extended the deadline for early action applications. Students now have until November 5th to submit applications. Here's the announcement from the university's undergraduate admission website:
Due to the potential impact of hurricane Sandy, the Stanford Undergraduate Admission deadline for Restrictive Early Action has been extended to 11:59PM (Pacific Time) on Monday, November 5, 2012 for students and high school personnel affected by the storm.If you're in the path of Sandy and you're facing a November 1st early application deadline, be sure to check with the college or university to see if the date has been moved.
