As a Harvard college alum, I would avoid. Basically anyone can go to the extension school, most employers know it’s not the same as a true undergrad degree. Would avoid!

Agreed. The calibre/ name recognition isnt there if that's what you're after. But if you're going after a new skill then it's adequate.
