@Ellie K Stanford has a one-year masters program called a coterm, which "roughly 30%" of students do (https://irds.stanford.edu/data-findings/coterminal-students). Some students take some time off between the end of their undergrad and the start of their coterm, which explains some of the 5% taking 6 years.

Why are graduation rates for a four year degree in four years so low?! Only 72.9% of students graduate on time. That is really low.

Are there scholarships or grants for members of the marching band? Also, if I am the winner of a full ride scholarship in my state, is there some sort of reciprocity at Stanford? Thank you.

There are quite a few sports offered at this university but another sport that is widely played and is growing more and more popular is rugby. Many men and women find rugby as an outlet to get into colleges such as Harvard
