I don't know if the others on this site are just having bad experiences of what. Harvard is NOT too expensive if you are compare it to other colleges. Connecticut College, a small liberal arts school, is more expensive than Harvard. It is true, no college should be charging these prices, but they are! So Harvard is no worse than the others.

As far as the education, you can NOT get a better one. The professors are usually the authors of your textbook… they are the ones that professors from other colleges quote. (Trust me, I transfered in).

As far as the campus and Cambridge. I don't know what these kids are comparing the city to, but honestly there is so much to do its mind-boggling. Its Boston for goodness sakes. Its the largest city in New England. Trust me, there is a lot to do. More than the average campus, and it is about 100 times nicer than New Haven (trust me, I'm from CT).

The only negative thing about Harvard is that it is SOOOOO competitive. I think these kids were absent the days we learned about group learning and group projects in middle school. They just don't want to have it. It is often said that professors cannot assign group problem sets because they students will complain so much that they never have time to meet. This probably is the case, but our workload is insane. But seriously, working together is a good thing sometimes.
