The administration really cares. All my professors have been very helpful and approachable, holding extra offices hours, meeting with us for coffee, etc. President Bush's ex-economic advisor who is my econ 100 professor eats lunch in my dining hall with students several times a week. Lectures are interesting and applicable. If you care about grades more than learning and being intellectually stimulated, you shouldn't come here because it is hard and you will get discouraged by your classmates' brilliance. Moving on to the topic of the student body… everybody here is really nice. Nobody talks about grades and people that are overly competative are socially shunned. The admissions department does a good job of selecting interesting applicants, with the result that spontaneous philosophical and intellectual conversations abound. Finally, you might hear that Princeton has a drinking problem; that's not true. We probably have a better time than the other ivy league schools, but it's definitely tame compared to the average college experience. Don't be turned off by stories of the eating clubs or our preppy stereotype. Being preppy is more of a tradition around here, people continue it for fun on events like lawnparties. Also, the eating clubs all have different attitudes and there's a sufficient variety of non club options like the 4 year collges or co-ops. Don't whine about the small town and campus life being boring; you're not being creative or open enough to new ideas.

To conclude, Princeton is the best school in the world! Never would I regret going here. I'm getting superior academic training in a gorgeous environment with faculty, staff, and administrators that care about me personally.
