Plenty of amazing people to meet, and honestly that's the only thing that's really cool about being undergrad. Downsides are lots of arrogant and competitive students, faculty more interested in research than teaching, a general focus on graduate and professional education instead of undergrads. Profs and students are for the most part brilliant, but somehow it doesnt all mesh together how it should.
As for social life, ethnicities stick to themselves (asians, internationals, etc.) so "diversity" is pointless.
Grading varies widely from course to course, instructors make up their own scale on a whim.
