Princeton is an incredible place to be.BrightUndecided
Princeton is an incredible place to be. I learn every day, and not just in class. The people at Princeton truly set it apart from any other college. Everyone truly loves Princeton and wants to be here. Everyone has had unique and interesting experiences that add to the environment. Academics are extremely challenging, but the classroom experience is worth it. Princeton is a beautiful, beautiful place. While it may not be the right choice for everybody, I can safely say that you will not be disappointed if you choose Princeton.

Princeton University is seriously a great institution.BrightPreMed and Medical
Princeton University is seriously a great institution. I'm currently pre-med, and can easily say that we cooperate a lot despite grade deflation. You will run into the occasional jerk, but most people will be extremely happy to help a fellow student in need. Faculty are great, and almost beg students to see them during office hours. My chemistry professor has begged us several times in lecture to take advantage of his time. The social scene is very fun, although I do admit to subscribing to the drinking culture. Certain people might dislike the street (like three of my suitemates). Believe you me, they have absolutely NO trouble finding things to do instead of drinking, and they love their time here as much as I do. If you're a downer and only see the negatives in your surroundings, I'm sure you can find plenty of things that are wrong with Princeton. However, if you open your eyes, Princeton has more positives associated with it than most other places in the world. Seriously, I'm not getting anywhere near a 4.0 and still wouldn't trade my spot here for anything.

These were by far the best four yearsQuite BrightChemistry
These were by far the best four years of my life. I loved being challenged in my course work. Exams, papers and problem sets were never about regurgitating information read or received in lectures. Instead, all independent work was an opportunity to acquired knowledge and determine how it could be applied to novel situations. More than anything, this approach develops your critical thinking skills. My social life was great. Everyone I knew was involved in multiple activities. The often maligned eating clubs were actually a great way to go out and know how to run into everyone you know. Students weren't competitive with each other so much as with themselves, which lead to great study groups. My only wish is that there would have been more support and one on one time with professors in humanities courses for non-majors.
