#1 Mistake of Stanford #ENGR145 Summer Students…

The largest mistake is coming to summer school at Stanford and hoping to get recommendation letters.

Maybe you were coached by a parent that didn’t go to college in America. Maybe you were mentored to get recommendation letters by a parent that doesn’t know what the current admissions climate is.
Pining for a recommendation letter won’t help. If you want to get into Stanford, listen closely…
-1- You’re in THE class for ENTREPRENEURSHIP.
Stanford admissions officers are looking for high school students with entrepreneur ability and promise. Ace ENGR 145 to increase your probability for admission.
-2- How do I ace ENGR 145?!
ENGR145’s Anchor Concepts: “Lemonade and ‘Gua Gua Guacamole'”
They move you to the right on the entrepreneur bell curve 
-3- You’re going to have to charm a mentor you don’t know to mentor you.
-4- I’d also set the goal to start and sell a company inside of ENGR 145
I’d google:
Ga Ga Guaranteed Exits
There’s 13 entrepreneur recipes I branded under Gua Gua Guacamole — executing 2-5 recipes will significantly help your effort to get into a school that passively and actively seeks out students that are entrepreneurs.
