With its liberal arts focus, Harvard provides the type of education that helps you to become a better thinker. You probably won't gain as much concrete knowledge here as you would at a non-liberal arts college, but I think this has more to do with the concept of liberal arts itself so it's not really Harvard's fault... One problem that does appear to be Harvard's own is that many of its professors are renowned for their research, which means that they're good at research but not necessarily teaching. They all know their stuff; many just have trouble teaching it. This is...

    absolutely the best school for those wishing to pursue the so-called "soft-sciences". and boasts one of the best and most rigorous liberal-arts programs in the world. of course, the old world charm that the castle-like buildings if the university doesn't hurt either!

    Harvard seems like a great school, the campus is beautiful & I've heard that academics are wonderful. Although tuition can be a bit expensive, they are a private school, so they are need blind & majority students get their financial needs fully covered.

    The students are great, teamwork is encouraged (I've heard from transfers that it is to a unique degree), there are a lot of ambitious people but nobody is too competitive. There are a million things to do, in terms of academics, extracurriculars, and events. It is true, however, that going to school with a bunch of smart ambitious people makes you question your abilities and it's harder to be at the top of the curve here, but I love it here nevertheless.

    It brings in hope on the fact on what you want to major in but not always the fact since you are able to change the major. Also fun when it comes to interacting with the community, clubs and events. Finally it can be very interactive with the students applying to the campus to students which are in the campus.
