How Harvard Has Changed Over The Years

The Harvard Crimson:
When Harvard’s future dean of admissions and financial aid was applying to the College in 1962, the first two teachers he asked for letters of recommendation refused.

“They wouldn’t write for Harvard because they thought it was a bunch of Communists, a bunch of atheists, a bunch of rich snobs, and if you went there you’d flunk out and you’d lose your soul,” said William R. Fitzsimmons ’67.
Greg Mankiw explains what has changed:
Today at Harvard, it is almost impossible to flunk out.
