Y Combinator's moving further up the funnel to educate and identify great founders and companies in a semi-scalable way. Super smart. @sama - In the blog post, it says "At the end of the class, participants will have a chance to share what they’ve built with a wide audience." Is this like a mini-demo day? How will this work?

Difference between YC and other ax is others pick founders with just great backgrounds whereas YC picks founders with great character and help them build a great background. See you soon in S'17.

I do like that YC creates lots of interesting content surrounding their platform. This is no exception. I'm sure lots of people will have signed up to this. Really intrigued to see what is shared at the end too... Waiting to see the story of "I signed up to Startup School, 6 months later I was accepted into Y Combinator"

This is awesome. @sama, for someone who watched your Stanford lectures, what will be the major difference in the new format?

For someone outside of the valley, who really itches to surround him/herself with likeminded founders, this should be epic. I know I appreciate the effort and can't wait to give it a spin! Stay motivated & best wishes!
