    Pros

    The people you meet here are incredibly capable and driven to success. Naturally, when you put enough Type-A's together you create a very competitive environment, but this environment can also drive innovation.

    Cons

    The culture of competition can drive some students to feel very disillusioned with the incredible opportunity they have of attending Harvard

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    More support for students
