I am planning on applying early decision/action to either Harvard, Stanford, Yale, Dartmouth, or Williams and wanted to know what makes each of these schools unique. If you have any insider knowledge as to why I should attend any of these schools I would greatly appreciate it. Please ignore admissions rates and college ranking. I want to know regardless where I will have the best experience and the best education.
I am interested in possibly majoring in Government or Industrial Design(or a similar program within engineering), but want a school with a lot of flexibility for exploration.
I love both city based schools and schools in nature.
