Obviously Harvard is stellar but it really depends on the undergraduate experience that you want.
Don't have a hissy.
Amherst is clearly superior.
However, the vast majority of people will choose Harvard, if only for the name.
lol @ sour grapes
Everyone's different...I can't stand the idea of going to a LAC so I never even considered applying to amherst, swarthmore, etc. If you're obsessed with the "perfect undergraduate experience," guess what....it ain't happening no matter where you go.
I think you are both embarrassing yourselves.
i guess waht ive learned form all this is that no matter what i do, people will think i made the wrong choice. if i turn down harvard there will always be people wondering why i did it, but if i turn down amherst there will always be people who will judge me for sacrificing what is probably a higher quality of education for the label of all labels.
