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 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.

    MIT seems really great. I had my interview with an EC a week ago, and he said that the atmosphere that the undergrads create is incomparable. MIT is my dream school, 100%.

    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?
