The number one determinant of how difficult a course is is the instructor. There are some classes with teachers that amount to playing quarterback for the 2002 Texans. No matter how good (smart) you are, you're not going to be highly successful.

Then there are other classes that are the equivalent to playing wide receiver for the New England Patriots. These are the courses where the instructor curves every test to where a 20/50 is an A...because, despite the fact that nobody has any clue about the difficult material being taught, he can't fail everyone.

Just saying at schools like Harvard/Stanford, it's against the nature of most of those kids to slack off.

I visited a friend for a weekend at Harvard when I was in college and on Saturday night in October their library was FULL with students studying.

Many instructors there have no problem giving everyone in an entire course all As and Bs because on a 40 question exam, it's not uncommon for the worst test only to get 10 questions wrong.

Those schools aren't prestigious because of the professors.
They're name brands because of the students who attend undergrad and grad school there.
