Harvard University Reviews
Great if you know exactly what you want to get out of it. Don't go in with no plan. Scholarships and needs-based aid is definitely there, as are ample networking opportunities. Academic advising is very hit or miss, and it really depends on who your advisor is.
Harvard was a fantastic place to meet other students who are passionate and committed to what they do and what they care about. Those relationships remain the best in my life, and push me to new levels in my own work. The institution itself is relatively hands-off, however, meaning little direct mentorship and/or close relationships with professors.
Awe-inspiring, disconnected from reality, occupies its own bubble, open doors for official students, over-run by tourists, elitist, little sense of community,historic, urban, incredible resources for all things
