i haven't started classes yet but i think mit's academic record speaks for itself. if you want to go here, be prepared to work. you'll work harder than you ever have but you'll also learn twice as much as you would at most other schools.

MIT is no breeze. Everyone has to work hard and a lot to get through here, but it is definitely worth it. I know that I am learning a lot of stuff and I find all of it interesting. While the school work is hard, the fact that everyone here goes through the same difficulties is comforting and creates a strong community.

The work here will challenge you. It's very difficult, and you will often be completely stumped on a problem. MIT allows for cooperation on homework, but it does not tolerate cheating of any kind. Do your work the best you can and you are sure to do fine in the end though.

It's tough.
