I have always dreamed of going to Harvard but I know that chances are against me. I was hoping I could get feedback on College Confidential. I'm not sure what I even want to major in--maybe Jounalism, Pre-Med, etc.

PS: What Ivy League University has the most lively Student Atmosphere. I want to go to a university in a somewhat big city that has a good university atmosphere. And also should I Apply to All Ivy League Universities.

Is there anything I am missing. Should there be something that I should be focusing more on.

Thanks So Much
