Harvard is a school with a plethora of resources, bright students, and an accomplished faculty. Professors are generally approachable, though you have to take the initiative to meet them. In fact, many faculty members complain that students do not attend office hours. I've certainly had my share of large lecture classes, but there are quite literally hundreds of small seminar classes, and I've generally enjoyed those that I have taken. If you're interested in medicine, there are so many opportunities, either at Harvard Medical School or the Harvard-affiliated hospitals. Grading is generally uniform in science exams in which there are definite right/wrong answers. Also, just because it's Harvard does not mean that you can't do extremely well here, either in terms of grades or extracurriculars. While it may be true that the competition for certain extracurricular spots can be intense-i.e. if you want to be President of the Crimson- there are so many opportunities for leadership if you simply look hard enough, especially through community service. Also be wary of some of the reviews on this site-many people not associated with the university like to vent their negative opinions about it.
