I would be interested to know if there are Harvard grads that say they wish they would've gone elsewhere, Michigan specifically.
I have a friend that is a rising Junior at Harvard, and I have gotten the impression that the experience a student has at Harvard is what he or she makes of it. If you want a "traditional" American college experience at Harvard I'm sure you can party your butt off and graduate. That being said, I think at less rigorous schools you can study 100 hours a week and be miserable. To me, it pretty much depends on the individual, at least to a certain extent.
