This is always great news!

I suspect that the "former professional figure skater" is Rachel Flatt. She was the 2010 U.S. Women's Figure Skating Champion. Can anyone confirm this?

Loving that over half the transfer students are from Community Colleges. Let the folks who had to have A-G for all students digest that statistic. A Stanford degree at half the price and an unquantifiable decrease in pressure.

There were only 18 students admitted from Community Colleges. I suspect that there is a razor thin chance of attending Stanford using this route. So the above comment is either disingenuous or intended to be sarcasm.
