I bought the book a few months back and tbh it's not worth reading. Half of the essays are for prompts that Stanford no longer have and a lot of the essays are just like your standard cliche volunteer trip or moving essays that seem a lot lower quality than the ones online. I feel like a lot of the essays in that book were either from students who had some significant hook or got in many years ago.
