Yale is arguably the best overall, but do not confuse Yale's undergrad program with Yale SOM, which is a grad only program, and is one of the very best worldwide. Harvards strenghts lie more in the composition area, and Princeton's program is also highly regarded. Columbia is also nicely rounded. The others can be iffy, even marginal, in terms of balance and peer level/quality.
