I was wondering if I can get some opinions about the difficulty of the biology major (or relative fields) at Stanford. What is the environment like? Is it like a cutthroat environment where everyone competes for an 'A', or does it have a more laid back atmosphere? I heard it was more laid back like Duke compared to the ivies.
Generally, is biology one of the tougher majors at Princeton? How doable is a 3.7+ at Stanford as a molecular biology major?
How competitive is it within the classroom? In your opinion, what do you think of the course breadth and difficulty in the classroom?
