    From what I've heard it is unique in it's ability to push students in every aspect of their academic life. Learning useful life skills and allowing to become more independent in every aspect of life, I'd like to hear more about the many individual stories that people have, feel free to reply here.

    Comparative study between people who attended an exclusive college vs those who were accepted but chose not to attend showed no difference in career success. If you're accepted here, you were probably already on the road to success. Almost certainly more trouble than it's worth.

    Expensive, because it's an Ivy League, but world-class professors and amazing class resources. Because it has such a reputation, though, anything that doesn't live up to that is underwhelming.
