I was reading these boards on Harvard and was AMAZED to see how negative the people who have posted about the school have been. Harvard has been by far the most wonderful experience in my life. There are, without a doubt, issues that the school needs to work on. It is a fairly big school, which means that not everyone is going to know you personally. It is a school with a very distinguished set of professors, which means that often students are embarrassed/to shy to take advantage of them. But beyond that the school is fantastic. If you make an effort to speak with professors I have found that they are almost universally interested in your thoughts and more than happy to spend time talking with you. The education which you are given is second to none. The world of ideas to which you are exposed is mind blowing. The students are unbelievably accomplished and a lot of fun to hang out with. The resources at your disposal are immense. Not everyone can love a given environment, but if you are a self starter and truly interested in learning at the highest level Harvard is absolutely fabulous. If you are really bright, but want some hand holding…best not to come.
