- I have loved Harvard since I was in 6th grade. I am going to be in 9th grade next year. Only 4 more years to go to my dream school. I believe it is the best place for a great education.

Harvard Engineering needs a makeover
- My daughter is a Harvard graduate in Engineering ( SB) and now pursuing an Engineering Doctorate at another Ivy school. First i think Harvard should put more resources in undergraduate Engineering if it plans to retain its dominance as the # 1 global university. Stanford, Columbia, and MIT are closing in on Harvard global impact in science and technology. Second, Harvard Faculty deflate the grades of the only SB program and Harvard Engineering graduates are put at a competitive disadvantage in grad school applications, except someone familiar with the rigour of Harvard SB in Engineering and its only SB degree can put the GPA in context which often is belied by an excellent GRE performance.

- This seems like a really great school. Like judging by the the pictures it seems really nice. And also by looking over Harvard University's profile. I'm a 7th grader that goes to a middle school in North Carolina, and I'm doing a project saying really what I want to do in the future, and this is one of the schools I would LOVE to go to!

A Parent's Perspective
- My eldest daughter transferred from Smith to Harvard. (Being a McGill grad myself I thought that was pretty cool as we considered McGill the Harvard of Canada back then in the 60s.) She majored in English, graduated with honors and received her commission as well as her A.B. degree. (She had done ROTC at MIT simultaneously.) We loved visiting her in Boston. Cambridge is full of lovely shops and eateries. While our daughter claimed she had worked harder at her boarding school than she did at Harvard, she did enjoy her experience there, made a lot of friends and got a fine start on her career. Time and money well spent.
Harvard University's Location
- I didn't go to Harvard (I'm a BU grad), but Harvard Square is such a great location--shopping, music, street performers, theatre... I found myself hanging out there most weekends. It's also a quick subway ride to downtown Boston, or a pretty walk to the Charles River. The greater Boston area is such a fabulous place to be a college student, and Harvard sits on some of the best real estate in the area.
