i will tell you exactly where i think harvard is. I have had a few friends that have gone there. I did not, but, from what i have seen, Harvard is very conservative. You go for the name. Program of a very buildable building is stressed. If you want to be an architect that does large projects, or maybe works in a large firm, it is a good name to have.

However choosing the grad school that is right for you is a difficult thing. In general, i will say that traditionally, harvard, princeton, yale and columbia are the highest ranked. But there are alot of good schools out there. Those 4 are also big bucks (Although if you get into Princeton, they will likely take care of you.) You have to decide what you want from graduate school. Columbia is one of the most radical, and computer based. Princeton is theory based. Harvard and Columbia, and likely all the others have web sites that will display student work. Do your homework. Set up interviews with the schools. It is a stressful process that takes a lot of time. It is a big investment. Good luck!!
