Quote from person at Command who went there

  • “One of the most accurate things I heard about Harvard before going was that student life is often as competitive as getting in was. For better or for worse, everyone is better than you at something, which can be a fascinating, exciting, scary experience. If you can take it, the rewards are more than worth it.” – Mike, Class of 2018
