Harvard U has changed drastically over the years. It was originally a prestigious private university for the high-performing elite class. Changes have been implemented to make the university more twentieth century and more inclusive. Being accepted is not easy, even if you are academically prepared for the rigorous coursework. Changes have been made to accept more minority and female students, as well as students from economically, disadvantaged backgrounds. Students who are selected to attend, usually are in the top 5% of their class, which means that the majority of students are highly gifted, and take their studies very seriously. Professors must challenge these students even more, so only the strong can survive. Harvard's reputation is how it can secure thousands of dollars in donations, and endowments. Student body and student life tends to be like any other college in America. Although Harvard is highly prestigious as an Ivy League school, it is not free of scandals and poor student behavior from time to time. Despite all this, most graduates of Harvard usually land pretty decent and good paying jobs after graduation.
