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.

  • I am researching this school and have not visited the campus

    A dream school for many, but a reality for few. As one of the leading STEM schools in the nation, my goal is to eventually attend; due to exclusivity, the earlier you start your research, the better!

    MIT is a wonderful environment for students to learn as well as enjoy their surroundings. Those on campus are very welcoming and are excited to share their experiences with other students. Not only are the students and faculty welcoming, but the campus is also beautiful and is surrounded by all that Cambridge and Boston have to offer.

    Students at MIT are always labeled â??nerdyâ?? and such, but I think that a better word is passionate. They are passionate with everything they do, not only academics. Whatever it is, students here arenâ??t embarrassed to show that they are not only some test score, but rather an individual that stands out from others.
