12764024, I think there was a time Howard was better than Harvard

When the best option for every smart black person in the entire country was to go to Howard, I think it had the highest concentration of smart people in the country period.

But now Harvard has the ability to attract the smartest black people.

Text books might be all the same at all these schools but what separates schools IMHOP is peer group. Just being around the best and the brightest challenges you to be the best and the brightest.

BTW, I don't think Harvard has the best undergrad because it's too big and many of its class are being taught by grad students, and it's focus is it's grad school.

I think the best undergrad is a school that's more of a pure undergrad play like Princeton.
