I realize that Harvard accepts incredible students, but do you think that the undergraduate program is tops??? According to www.studentsreview.com some Harvard undergrads think that Harvard's undergrad reputation is overrated. Any insights???

it's not for everyone. Like any other school, Harvard has a "personality" and if your personality doesn't fit Harvard's your not gonna like it no matter how good it is. it seems overrated to some, but really good to others. it's a personality thing, not a jealousy thing

I stopped trusting the Harvard students review (and the site in general) when I noticed one little thing:

HARVARD's Surrounding City: B (6.6)
MIT's Surrounding City: A (9.2)

Are you kidding me? There are too many Harvard-haters.

Well, if you mean #1 as in US News, then yes, it does. US News doesn't make the criteria up- each criterion is a calculated, factual number score, and if those are the rankings you're going by, it obviously has to deserve its top spot.

As far as a general ranking would go, I think that Harvard has the best of all the tangible elements of a college, and so if the intangible things- your personality- matches with that of Harvard's, it's almost certain that you'd have a "#1 experience."

Then what is the personality best suited for Harvard, Stargal?
