MIT is a great school, it has an excellent Aerospace Program that is simply to die for. Being a sophomore, I can safely say that the school is the dream of any engineers.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

Massachusetts Institute of Technology lives up to its reputation of high academics and a strong emphasis on the STEM fields, but it also has a lovely spacious campus with lots of greenery to picnic on or play games. The campus also has a well-built arts program with its own theatres where it holds its own performances.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

It is one of the greatest university in the world especially for engineering skills, I'd recommend it to people who have interest in attending colleges. The college have variety of sobriety a student can join, it offers opportunities and practical knowledge. Recreation and sports are essential so is education at Massachusetts institute of technology.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

It used to be the best school for Engineering. It keeps getting worse because the administration is ignoring the students. The culture at MIT is a big part of what makes it and the people that live here the best, but the administration is doing its best to rid MIT of a culture that it says is hurting MIT based on surveys whose results have been twisted to the preferences of the administration. My overall rating of this school would be 5 stars if the administration actually listened to the students. https://thetech.com/2019/02/28/history-new-vassar-design The tech and the MIT student blogs are the best ways (except actually visiting and talking to current students) to find out if MIT is still the school for you.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

MIT is worth the cost for STEM students. The high standards for acceptance mean that most people actually care about academics. You can get back from a class about basic chemistry and run into an upperclassman and have an hour conversation about how computer processors work and how all modern OS types have major security flaws then discuss a solution before starting your PSET from that class.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

MIT lives up to its reputation in terms of the plethora of research/creative opportunities available to its students. Campus culture is diverse, especially across different living communities. Academics can be overwhelming, but there are many extracurricular student activities to balance out the work load.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

What's the best thing about MIT? My favorite thing about MIT is that students enjoy learning and work hard. Name one thing you'd change. One of the downsides is that professors are generally much more focused on research than teaching. But if you're an independent learner you can get what you need from books, TAs, and other students. Is your school too large, too small, or just right? I think MIT is a good size-- I don't have trouble getting into the classes I want, but it's big enough that there are enough academic and social opportunities. How do people react when you tell them you go to MIT? Actually, people usually freak out, say that it must be super-hard. Where do you spend most of your time on campus? During the day, I split my time between class and lab. College town, or "what college town?" Boston is right across the river from MIT (10 minute walk) and many students hang out there or in Cambridge (more college-town) on the weekends. Boston is a great place to be a college student: lots of other colleges, restaurants, night life, great public transportation (don't bring your car here!). What's your opinion of MIT's administration? I don't think I have any strong feelings about MIT's administration. Some aspects of student life are ignored here-- particuarly dining. The dining halls are only open for dinner, and only 5 days a week, and they're expensive. I don't think any students are satisfied with the dining opportunities. But there are parts of the administration that are very supportive. MIT Medical offers great physical and mental care for all students, and Student Support Services vouches for students who have illness or personal emergencies that affect their coursework. What was the biggest recent controversy on campus? Probably when an MIT student wore a tshirt with a circuit on it into Logan airport, and the administration told the media her behavior was reckless-- before the details of the story were confirmed. Is there a lot of school pride? There's definitely school pride here. Students feel like their in the most challenging technical environment in the world. Is there anything unusual about MIT? Lots of things are unusual about MIT-- the architecture of the buildings on campus, the required hard-core science classes for all students, the fact that (almost) everyone here is a scientist or engineer. What's one experience you'll always remember? What are the most frequent student complaints? Students here love to complain about their workloads. A typical MIT student conversation goes something like this: student 1- "I have 2 psets (problem sets) and an exam tomorrow" student 2- "well I have 3 psets and a paper for tomorrow" student 3- "I'm even more hosed, I have 3 psets and a paper and 2 exams next week" I don't particularly think it's healthy but that's the culturt

What is your overall opinion of this school?

MIT is one of the best schools in the nation. All the professors truly care about each and every student. Additionally, there are always opportunities to grow as a student. The connections made here last a lifetime. I can't imagine going to another school.
