Harvard University is one of the best college experiences one can have if one is lucky enough to get in. I got into Harvard as well as UC Berkeley, UCLA, Stanford and UPenn and for me Harvard was my top choice. The academic environment is stimulating, cutthroat, open-minded and progressive. It is the most truly collegiate atmosphere in the country. The other students are from everywhere and are the best of the best. Do you have to work hard? Heck yes, and no one is going to hold your hand, so if you're into self motivation and individual accountability, you'll do just fine. People are genuine, they aren't fake nice or anything like that. Get to know your professors and pick their brains. Get involved on campus. Take classes in a variety of subjects. Work hard, play hard. Open your mind to learning, that's what college is about. Those that just want a degree and getting out need not apply. There are many other places that are cheaper and more convenient for career preparation. If you truly want to learn and open your mind to new things, come here. You'll be going to college in the best college city in the country, as well as the best college area in the country, the Northeast. Make these four years the best ever. You'll have the rest of your life to be an adult, Harvard gives you four years to be a student of the world.
