Stanford’s not for people like you.

I was an A student at Key West High School when I graduated from Key West High School in 1981. While applying to top ranked colleges, my guidance counselor, Mrs. Adair, told me that Stanford University was not for students like me. I’m African American. I knew what she meant. I graduated from Stanford University in 1985 with a BS in Biological Sciences.
