    Unlike many other schools, Harvard does not use a random process to determine housing arrangements for freshmen. I mean, where you live is random, but not the people you live with. The housing office staff tries their best to pair you up with people who are similar to you in terms of lifestyle but different enough to create an interesting mix. Although there are some cases of housing disasters, most people I know like their roommates and are close with others in the same dorm. Even better, you get to choose who you want to live with for the rest of your 3 years there. If that's not enough for you, there are PLENTY of clubs/organizations for you to join and meet people, and an endless amount of concerts/shows/dances/parties/other fun events throughout the year. The work is, of course, difficult but definitely manageable if you know how to use your time wisely. Also, the fact that you're allowed to check out the classes before actually enrolling in them (known as shopping classes) definitely helps you to decide which ones to take. Basically, you get to sit in on the first lecture or two and give it a test-run before you decide whether to sign up for that class. Just when you think it can't get any better than this, there's also a very useful student evaluations website (the Q Guide) where you can read feedback from past students. If you read the Q Guide and shop the classes, the chance of you taking a class that you'll hate is substantially reduced. The real problem is having to choose from a myriad of interesting classes. read full review

    I absolutely enjoy being there. Wonderful students, wonderful staff. People actually care about you at Harvard. People always ask me, Do they party at Harvard? Yes! Maybe not as crazy as some schools, but we definitely have some great parties. The Cambridge/Boston location is very exciting. The only con I've noticed is a lack of school spirit sometimes. read full review
