Coming to Harvard was one of the greatest challenges I have ever endured. I had a 4.0 GPA with a 2300/2400 SAT. First and foremost, Harvard professors DO NOT care about the students. The professors in this school are more focused on their own research rather than the wellness of the student. I transferred out of Harvard because the academics are a joke. I was seeking a challenge and this is definitely not the school to find a challenge. I transferred to Fordham University in New York because I was offered a full scholarship. Looking back at my Harvard days, I was very disappointed in the faculty. The students range from arrogant self absorbed individuals, to friendly and down to earth individuals. Overall, I give Harvard a C in terms of Academics. The reputation is phenomenal; however what good is the reputation if one is lacking the knowledge? I enjoy my new school not only because it?s free but they actually offer a challenge in terms of academics. I plan on going to graduate school at Yale University or Cornell University, notice I will not be returning to Harvard.
responseTotally agree. Why don't parents tell their kids that professors at elite schools get rewarded for research, not teaching?
