Date: Mar 22 2005 Major: Chemistry (This Major's Salary over time) Harvard is a place for a particular sort of student. You really need to be motivated, no one is going to help you if you don't seek out help, and professors will surely devote about 0% of their time to you. In fact, my contact with professors had to be the most disappointing aspect of my experience, as I rarely had any and when I tried, I found the professors, especially in the sciences very unapproachable and not very helpful. The student body is wonderful though and diverse, works very hard, too hard in fact. The social life was really poor and I found many weekends without any sort of social outlet. Extracurriculars were awesome, got involved heavily with PBHA and did volunteer work at shelters- getting involved really helped me to ground myself in the real world instead of the ivory tower of harvard.I think if I hadn't been seduced by the name, and if I had researched other schools, I would have ended up somewhere else, and I think many harvard kids would have too.
