5.0 of 5 stars
Easy enough to say, Harvard is the number 1 college in the world
Full of spoiled rich kids who came in through parents
Be born really lucky or a complete genius. Otherwise no chance

Rigorous academics, great social life, networking opportunities, proximity to Boston
Lack of greater support for international students, inadequate dining food quality
I would suggest all potential students to take a challenging courseload before coming here.
4.0 of 5 stars
Resources - while at times difficult to navigate, University has an unrivaled breadth of resources available for students.
Difficult to navigate at times - a lot of bureaucracy and redundancies.
It is one of the best -- if not the best university in the world. It will challenge you, it will motivate you, it will at times crush you - but depending on how you choose to handle each challenge thrown your way: you can walk away with one of the best educations and experiences available.It's what you make of it.
Peers are incredibly impressive and driven, the connections you make are more valuable than anything taught in the classes. Grade inflation. Anyone who tells you it doesn't happen is lying. Name that everyone knows and respects.
Competition surrounding every aspect of life: everyone is constantly trying to one-up the next person. Easy to miss out on a lot of things when always measuring yourself versus your peers instead of enjoying the moment.
Social life is dominated by the final clubs. If you're in one it's great, if you're not, it can be kind of tough, especially as a guy.

The extremely engaged and active student body. The number of student organizations and dedicated students is dizzying. The number of weekend parties in the dorms and on campus means there is always something to do. The requirement that everyone eat in the dining halls creates a sense of community and comraderie.The access to the politically connected fits the school's reputation.
The weather. The amount of time people spend studying and worrying can be intense.
If you are passionate about learning, and enjoy meeting others that feel the same way, there is no better place to be. People are truly nice and cooperative. I did not study alone for a single class, despite having an initial aversion to study groups. There is truly a sense that everyone is in it together.
