    After reviewing a small portion of what Harvard University has to offer, i think that this is a wonderful institution.

This is the school that gave us some of the best American presidents we've known, I know that they produce greatness.

    Harvard is perfect. The stereotypes associated with this school are right. People here are genuinely interested in your success.
