“There is a big distinction from Harvard collegeQuite BrightBiology
There is a big distinction from Harvard college and the University. The College is for the Undergrad and all of Harvard's laurel's and reputation rest in the University. Note that almost 90% of Harvard's resources are put into the University-not the College. That said, Harvard does not care about the college.Professors are impossible to interact with and to access. You would be well advised to go to an elite school that focuses on the Undergraduate. I noticed my friends who were also admitted to Harvard College and chose schools like Williams, WUSTL, Rice, to name a few, learned more, were happier and ended up doing better. Ask any Harvard Undergraduate if they are really happy and you will hear "no", across the board. It's sad but you pay for the name not the education. The Graduate programs here, on the other hand, are amazing and worth their stellar reputation. There are people here who have never seen a minority in their lives-seriously.
“Don't go directly to graduate school.Quite BrightEducation
Don't go directly to graduate school. Go into the world for a while and make sure that you know what you want to do and where you want to study. Choose a school and classes by who you want to study with not just the rankings of an institution. Make connections once you are in school, maintain them and use them once you get into the work world.
