Most Helpful Review for Massachusetts Institute of Technology

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 all about getting their students the experience they need to pursue whatever field they desire. There is an endless amount of opportunities for students to do hands-on work in labs with different professors. In addition to all of the great academic programs, the people who work there actually want their students to be passionate and to succeed, that creates the best college environment I have ever experienced.

    I am absolutely in love with the environment MIT provides. MIT is definitely my top school and would not pick any other college for money. You have to visit and attend the course 6 tour to really feel how amazing this place is.

    Really hoping to get accepted here. Just wondering if anyone knows if having both an ACT and SAT score help my chances? Or will just an ACT score be fine?

    MIT is the place where people of similar interests and personalities - from all backgrounds, come together to create wonderful new things and ideas. From the campus to the courses, the school is a magnet that attracts students that are interested in the sciences, mathematics, and engineering. You do not have to be a rocket scientist to know that this school is at the top for science-related academics.

    An awesome place full of students and professors who are excited to learn and teach each other, who collaborate every day on projects that advance knowledge on topics ranging from aerospace technology to brain and cognitive sciences. Not only do you receive one of the best educations available, you are part of an amazingly talented and enthusiastic group of people who live and learn together as a community. There are opportunities for everything here at MIT, including athletics, study abroad, theater and arts, and numerous research and internship opportunities all over the world.

    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.
