Don't expect anything from Princeton - let it surprise you, positively or negatively. Whatever you expect is not what it will be.

No, there are really few shining geniuses here. Environment isn't competitive, at least not in most departments. Kids come here and tend to start imitating each other in style—the polo shirts, the J.Crew, the Banana, the pink chinos, etc.—as well as mindset. This isn't a politically-active campus. I feel like I live in a bubble. People claim to be liberal, but I'm sure their parents aren't.

My reason for coming here? THE NAME ON THE DIPLOMA. Not the education itself. Other universities—particularly the larger state schools—have far superior student facilities. Princeton doesn't need to offer such amenities to entice students to come here, so bear that in mind.
