I’m not really sure what to make of this seeming contradiction.
The methodology behind the “Most Stressful” rankings is pretty lame, but there is some truth to the notion that Stanford students experience certain kinds of stress. I imagine it is the same kind of stress that kids at other elite, competitive universities experience … but Stanford students get to experience that stress under the shade of palm trees and under sunny skies 10 months of the year. Maybe it does make sense.
