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.

    Simply put, it is one of my dream schools. The more I research it, the more alluring it looks. Yet at the same time it looks more and more challenging to get admitted.

    MIT is a really good school. But when I read the essay of some students that got in, it seems like they are Einstein or something. I believe that with God, an average student who is focused and determined can get into MIT.

    mit is all about constructive chaos. the institute provides the resources and environment you need to be creative/innovative then they just kinda yell "go". in a sense, you're on your own to pave your path and make the most of the opportunities, but there's also plenty of help if you seek it.

    the school is full of creative students. i have a couple of friends who really enjoy it here, but it is very tough as well. the teachers are some of the most intelligent people on the planet who welcome students to do research with them.

    People here seemed very hard working, and very quirky, but in a good way. This place would be great for those planning to work with others. Lots of research opportunities are available.
