Most Helpful Review for Massachusetts Institute of Technology
  • Category: Am learning a lot
  • Review by: Aaron from Farmington Hills, MI

MIT is the #1 Engineering school in the nation and perhaps the world. However, even those studying other subjects have come to a University that pushes the limits of time management and, quite plainly, one's genius. This University requires its students pass Calculus I and II, Physics I and II, Biology, and Chemistry to graduate, which says a lot about the emphasis on learning.

    MIT is the best college in the world according to several sources, and I am inclined to agree. There is a lot of work and of course stress, but the payoff is entirely worth it in my opinion. However, more than that, I've met people who I feel I belong with.

    I have truly found paradise or I hate this fracking place. Both are true all the time. This is the most stressful, most fun, and most challenging experience I have ever had, and I love it.

    MIT seems like the best school for engineering students. It seems expensive. MIT seems as academically accepted as any other school.

    There is lots of freedom given to the students. The campus is very nice and right next to the Charles river. One will definitely be challenged by the academics.
