I'm trying to get an idea about how social life in Harvard compares with that in MIT. Or other ivy leage schools for that matter. Would anybody offer an opinion about that?

Harvard social life is so much better than "those kids at MIT". All they do is drink and play board games. Big up to HARVARD.

Not really. It depends on your idea of what social life is. Both places offer society in their own way.

Let's get away from all the spin about Boston and these two schools. Let's be honest. Cambridge itself is not a particularly beautiful or exciting place. It's sort of ticky tacky and touristy, filled with pollution and dirty streets. It has some decent music and dance clubs, but nothing spectacular. No one goes to MIT for the social life. The social life at Harvard really depends upon the student and his/her intersts and personality and living conditions. It's funny, but often colleges in smaller cities (Princeton, New Haven, Prodivdence) have better on campus social life and environment than urban schools.

Colleges in smaller cities should have better on-campus social scenes since they have less to offer off campus.
