I frankly don't think Harvard has added anything to my education that I wouldn't have been able to obtain elsewhere, and likely in a more pleasant environment. The teaching fellows are great, the professors almost all self-absorbed and uninterested in us (even when they are brilliant.) With all these super-bright fellow students around me, you would think there would be a much more engaging academic environment.

It is a picture postcard. Static. Lacking in dynamism. Unfeeling. Distant. I have learned much about myself. And I will have "Harvard" next to my name. College should have been so much more. And given Harvard's resources, it is a darn shame it isn't.
