Harvard University Education

Tanya Said:

Why is an Harvard education any different from a state university education?

We Answered:

The reputation. Similar to Yale and Stanford. The saying is, if you have a diploma of any of the big ones, no one will accept that you really are an idiot until you are well into your 40s. ;-)

Allen Said:

The Online courses may or may not be delivered synchronously. An online course may need that students and teachers meet once or periodically in a physical setting for lectures, labs, or exams, so long as the time spent in the physical setting does not exceed 25 percent of the total course time.

Jessie Said:

Is a Harvard education really THAT much better than that of a somewhat decent state university?

We Answered:

It's really a mystery that no one on Yahoo Answers can provide an answer to. Harvard to me though is a place of contradictions. It obviously is good if billionaires and celebrities pay millions just to send their kids there to get B's and C's (i.e. George W. Bush at Yale). Why would they do that? It beats me.

Maybe we can look at high schools to solve the supposed mystery. At first glance, there are private schools and then public schools. However for anyone who's cared enough to look deeper, there are 10 elite private schools (sort of the equivalents of the Ivy League) and then other private schools, some good, most bad. At these schools, 30% of the kids go to good (top 15) colleges. Let's say the colleges are the equivalent of an employer for college grads. A lot of these kids are rich, good at one thing, or a legacy. But only about 10% of them. 20% of the blue collar kids get into a Harvard, Yale, or Princeton. The rest of the kids go to Colby Sawyer or Bates and work hard and end up near the top of the class with the skills that they got from prep school.

Then there are hundreds of thousands of public high schools. You're getting an "education", but in order to go to the local college or get a low paying job.

BUT, and this is a big but, there are public elite schools where kids take IB and AP courses from freshmen year and who have SAT scores in the range of the 10 elite private schools. This could be represented by a good school like UVa or Penn State or even an honors program at a relatively good college. You have good teachers and resources- obviously, it doesn't have the prestige of an amazing Ivy school, but colleges (i.e employers) still are as willing to admit these students as the private school kids. Even at some of the local public high schools, you get success stories about students who got into an Ivy. Of course, you had to do all the work yourself and worked harder than any of these kids.

So basically, what I tried to say, and I think I failed miserably, is that you can succeed from all the walks of life. You can go to Harvard or Yale and work hard and hope you're among the lucky few (30%) who becomes All-stars in the corporate world. If you go to a good public college though that stimulates and supports you, you can be an all-star as well and a lot of kids from these kids do end up making it. Some people who go to bad colleges but are genuinely smart or hard workers can end do well. However, these kids are going to have to work the hardest and really pave a road for themselves. If you go to Harvard, you have the greatest chance of being successful. However, considering you were supposed to be smartest high school kids in the world, and you would have been successful anywhere else, I don’t know why you would let that success be jeopardized by going to a school full of rich and influential kids who take that success away from you.

Getting into Harvard is a big deal, and so if anyone does congratulations. However, succeeding after getting in is a bigger deal and a much harder one. If you do, you’re set for great wealth. If you go to a state college, work your *** off and make the most of your college, and you’ll have a better education and life than most Harvard graduates.

After reading some of the comments that other people wrote, it makes me realize that there are a lot of false conceptions about Harvard. No, you aren't taught by professors at the top of their field- they probably work in the grad school, or are too busy furthering themselves to help a bunch of 20 year olds. From what my friends and sister have told me, classes are usually taught by TA's and you never have the chance to meet with these teachers.

Also, if Harvard is about the social interactions you have with other people, then that really is not related to education. You can choose your friends, and here at Penn, and even back in boarding school, I met a lot of interesting people who are along the same caliber of a Harvard student. I mean, I'm obviously not a harvard student, but I do go to Penn and two members of my family did go to Harvard, and about a tenth of everyone in my high school did go to Harvard- and there's not a big difference. My sister got kicked out for a year because of something she didn't do. Maybe that's influenced about how I feel about the school-but if you read everything I've written, I'm sure you'll think that Harvard isn't really that different from another good school

Paul Said:

Is Obama a good example of what a Harvard University Education will produce?

We Answered:

Sure just as Michelle Bachmann is an example of Christian education...

Jeff Said:

what is the best education system you can study in in order to get into a good university like harvard?

We Answered:

It does not depend upon the system. Harvard is looking for students who are highly outstanding in the system they are in. You need to be above the others in your classes wherever you are to get into one of these schools. They get so many applicants that they can choose among 10 with perfect grades for each spot in the class.

Elmer Said:

how is education system in Harvard university?

We Answered:

I'm amazed an American hasn't answered this question, but from all reports I've ever heard Harvard University has a high standard of education - particularly in business studies. Some of the top 500 entrepreneurs in the USA graduated from this establishment. Certainly it would do you no hard whatsoever to have it recorded in your Curriculum Vitae (Resume).

Harvard - founded on the 8th September 1636 - is the oldest institution of higher learning in the United States and is a member of the Ivy League. It is located in Cambridge, Massachusetts. Their motto is VERITAS (truth). You can view their web site at:
