I transferred from National Taiwan University. I would say that the biggest difference is not the class, but the students. I met so many genius here. The most important property of Massachusetts Institute of Technology are its intelligent students.
MIT is an awesome place!
a great student ,and i hope i can get in
There are great professors and great TAs who are always willing to help, and will respond to your emails very promptly. Facilities are great, especially the athletic facilities. The people of course are the best part -- intellectually-minded students who are passionate about what they do.

My classmates are amazing and well motivated toward sucecsss
There are some pretty common stereotypes about MIT students that portray us as the socially awkward, myopic, mathematical geniuses bent on world domination (Well, maybe not all of those things).
Yes; most of my current professors know my name. My favourite class: Algebra and Symbolic Programming.
Class participation is common.
Students study a lot of the time. There is a lot of work, and it's hard to get by without studying enough!
Yes, I do have intellectual conversations outside of class, both with professors and fellow students. Students are not competitive, which I think is very good.
I think MIT's education, at least in the Mathematics Department, is geared towards learning for its own sake.
The best thing about MIT: The people. Professors, Grad Students, Students - fantastic.
I think MIT is just the right size.
When I tell people I go to MIT, I get reactions like "Ooh... so you're one of those MIT nerds, I see."
Boston/Cambridge is definitely a college town.
I'm involved with the MIT Literary Society; we read one book every month and then meet twice a month to have a discussion on that book.
Students in my dorm, at least, leave their doors open. Within my floor, we are very social.
Some of my closest friends here are the people that I live with, on my floor.
If I'm awake at 2 am on a Tuesday, I'm probably working on a problem set.
On a Saturday evening, I often go out to eat, and later watch a movie.
The culture here is very unique. As well as the collaborative and friendsly environment.
Intense - work hard, play hard.
The best thing about my school is how so much opportunties for what a student can do here is abound and plentiful. You are most likely to regret for the things you didn't do rather than regretting what you have done here at MIT.
The difficulty of the coursework is most frustrating, but it is simultaneously one of the defining characteristics of MIT.
The inability to get academic help...you must sign up for tutoring early - before you know if it's needed! Tutors are generally unavailable beyond the first few weeks of classes. There are often "no show" faculty to the group study sessions.
Are school is best known for its engineering fields, and the quality and fame of the staff. We have several notable Noble Laureattes who teach here, as well as numerous professors who are the pioneers and beat all end all experts of their given fields.
I brag about all the amazing opportunities that are offered at my school, from varsity and intramural sports to clubs to greek life to study abroad to internship and career opportunities.
A person with keen study skills, a knowledge of basic college level mathematics and sciences, and a desire to exceed in their chosen field. I'm not going to lie, you need to be smart to attend here and plan on succeeding. It's a very difficult college, but the difficulty of 4 years of study is easily worth the benefits upon graduation.
I knew it was going to be academically rigorous, that was a no-brainer. But I am still learning the importance about not letting academics take over your life. In freshman year, the course load was lighter and I was able to have a varied social life. However, first semester sophomore year I retreated to skipping weekend parties just to make more time to study. Again, I'm still figuring out the balance and I'm trying harder to prioritize friends over problemsets.
