Degree: Neuroscience
Graduation Year: 2015

MIT is an excellent school for it's intensely rigorous academics, brilliant student body, and networking potential after graduation. The drawbacks are the high focus on science and engineering at the expense of other subjects and this is a place that will make you miserable if you aren't deeply interested in the subject matter.

Degree: Engineering
Graduation Year: 2013

MIT is an amazing place if you are up for a challenge and are interested in STEM, Economics, Architecture. Most students are interested not only in their field or research, but also in many other ideas and activities . The university is extremely supportive of creative, intelligent students, especially if you take initiative to seek things out. The undergraduate culture is mostly very collaborative and not cut-throat competitive (at least in my department). The workload and culture are quite intense, so it is not for everybody, but I and many of my friends thrived at MIT.

Degree: Aerospace Engineering
Graduation Year: 2016

Attending MIT was the most difficult and most influencing thing that has ever happened to me in my life. There are hundreds and hundreds of student organizations, clubs, sports, professional societies, and research opportunities (even as undergraduates). The only limit to opportunity is what you make of it, and how much you can take on and maintain a healthy lifestyle. The entire school community is incredibly inclusive and supportive, and even while dealing with extremely difficult coursework and demands, it is the most worthwhile and rewarding experience imaginable.

Degree: Information Technology
Graduation Year: 2012

I got a Prestige Scholarship. I went to my IT class and studied hard. As soon as I went home, I studied day and night, when I had time. I currently have my own business in 2 states. I am hoping any future scholars can learn from my story.

Degree: Actuarial Science
Graduation Year: 2005

The school is every bit as tough as its reputation. However, obtaining a degree from MIT, which requires a well rounded background in all fields of science in addition to a student's choice of major, will make you well prepared to overcome any other obstacle in your academic and professional career!

Degree: Materials Sciences, Other
Graduation Year: 2009

Education there was top notch but I'm sure you can get very similar curriculum elsewhere. However, the value of going to MIT would be the people you meet and the network you build. You meet highly motivated and inspired people from diverse backgrounds that challenge you to look beyond and achieve great things. It can also make you feel highly inadequate, however all in all it was a positive peer pressure experience.

Degree: Electrical Engineering
Graduation Year: 2010

MIT is a great school for science and engineering. the resources and the freedom of choice which are available to students there are probably the best anywhere. great name recognition too, as evident by amount of recruitment on campus.
