  • Not close to the Centre as a good metro ride, Harvard is definitely worth a visit if you are in Boston. It really is sort of a separate district in the city, full of culture and a magical atmosphere. Walk among the red brick buildings and green fields in perfect English style makes you feel almost a college student.

  • The place is very beautiful. Old buildings with great architecture, nice trees and grass outside, but there you should stay. There'sno entry to the buidings unless you have a Harvard employees or stud...  read more »
  • This place is garbage, just pure toxic, radioactive, steaming pile of garbage. First of all, I would have never resorted to ad hominem attacks and 1/5 star reviews if this place did not ooze more radioactive garbage than Chernobyl itself. The people here are a bunch of egotistical elitist snobby scum who only enjoy circlejerking their intellect and being elitist and downright demeaning to the poor and unintelligent. Rejecting people because they do not fulfill the minimum Bill Gates wealth level scholarships and money requirements to enter this giant toxic waste dump just to make greedy rich scum richer than before is just dumb. This place sickens me to no end. No worthwhile education, just snobby scum being snobby scum. Evil bullies being mean to everyone "below them," it is pure corruption at heart. Fancy papers to classify these snobby scum as better than everyone else in the world. They have snobby rich scum professors and esoteric knowledge, but they do not have anything that truly stands out from the rest of the world.
  • During Harvard application there is an entire page, full of selections for you to choose "if you are a decedent of..." "if you are a direct relative of..." blahblahblah, the only school that requires the filling of such information. Purified nepotism and cronyism that they can almost crystallize. It's more of a place to secure social status of an offspring from money and power rather than a education/research institute. The daughter of Chinese President Xi went there as well as junior Bush. That should tell.
  • Most famous people who went here, aside from President Barack Obama, have dropped out of here. The techies: Zuckerberg and Bill Gates. The place must have been a nightmare for them, as its focus is entirely liberal arts. There is no way a liberal arts school can reign in the top #1 spot in America by US News and World Reports, like we really believe that. If we all just sat around all day and studied nothing but liberal arts we would never accomplish much at all. The real thinkers are victimized by this phony system of inflated egos: technical blue collar people like repairmen and construction workers, plumbers, electricians, technicians who know how to repair an engine. We need more unions so these professionals can make more money and won't be dependent on handouts. Thanks for reading my Google Review. my ex was JP Morgan's great grandson. He said that sure his sister was smart enough to get in here and use the family connections. His dad was the dean of Harvard medical school. i didn't really like him at all, but he was a fun friend to have at that time. i think his mom should help me out with some cash loan
