Overall, I'm incredibly happy with Harvard. I think that there are currently a few problems with the academics—which, of course, are being ironed out—but that these problems aren't as big as some people make them out to be. If you're expecting the world's best, anything that's not absolutely perfect is going to be a bit of a disappointment, I guess.

But the thing to remember is that it's not ALL about the classes. It's also about the people. The VAST majority of people here are nice, approachable, and brilliant. Almost everyone you'll meet has a few things about about them that will make you go, "wow"—or maybe one big thing that will make you go "WOW." People here are more than just test scores and grades—they have amazing interests, a passion to learn, create, and explore, and are generally friendly, social, and incredibly interesting to get to know—not to mention surprisingly modest.

I would highly recommend Harvard.
