I love Princeton - in my opinion, it offers the best undergraduate education in the United States. A few things are less-than-ideal: the surrounding town is boring and obnoxiously bourgeois, students can sometimes be very pretentious, and the workload and grading system are oppressive. The administration can often seem somewhat unresponsive to student sentiment.

All the same, the professors and classes are phenomenal, and I've had a fantastic time going here. The academics alone make it worth attending. Princeton is absurdly generous with financial aid. Additionally, the school scores highly on quality-of-life measures - the dorms are (mostly) plush, the food is decent, and the people are (on the whole) fun to be around. Given the chance to repeat the college-selection process, I wouldn't even think of going anywhere else.
