"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."

"Very challenging. Be prepared to take a hit to your self esteem - most people coming into MIT have been the top of their class for most of their life and aren't prepared for being average. From a jobs perspective, my MIT degree has been a ticket to absolutely anywhere I want to go. (I'm computer science, not sure how true this is in other fields)."

"great program, except that it is in New England. If you like New England or at least can bare it, then it could be a good fit. Also has the unnecessary 'culture of stress', but that's probably endemic to most institutions in the same league due to the hegemonic culture of late-neoliberal capitalism--it's just all exacerbated by the unfortunate disposition of New Englanders. I'm also writing this under seven-plus feet of snow, so you've caught me at a bad time."

"MIT is a place for game-changers. Here, people do not follow the 'norms' of career paths, but rather invent their own to navigate. The Institute offers the tools and wide range of experience for any student to find their way forward."

"MIT graduate architecture program has its own distinctive position in the field. Its interdisciplinary approach, its open and communicative atmosphere rather than being conservative, and world-best intelligent discourses provide architecture students best environment to flourish and continuously evolve. Consisting of only a small number of students and focusing more on certain aspects of architectural design in general academic atmosphere, it sometimes is not appropriate for students who want to concentrate purely on traditional Architecture itself."

"Architecture program in MIT as graduate program is meaningful and distinctive in many aspects. First and foremost, the program provides enough opportunities to communicate with other fields that opens a wide spectrum of future career for students. Not to mention that it is very inspiring in terms of academia."

"Highly collaborative culture with smart yet down to earth students. Plenty of opportunities to interact with students from other MIT programs. MIT provides fantastic support to students and their families in the event of a personal or medical emergency. One drawback is that tuition and livings costs are pretty high and only a few benefit from scholarships and fellowships."

"The biggest advantage of being at Sloan is the community. Sloanies are incredibly helpful - whether that's helping understand a tricky concept in class, helping classmates prepare for interviews, or helping friends get through the highs and lows of everyday life."

"Pro: amazing faculty, wonderful, supportive cohort, rigorous academics. No real cons - wish there were more social opportunities across the cohorts. Note about the first rating: I ranked MIT high for the academic competitiveness for getting in. Not sure if that rating meant within a department...in which case there is only support and no competition for ideas, really just wonderful."

"The school has a wonderful atmosphere and an amazing culture that everyone in the school can relate to and appreciates. Everyone is so helpful and collaborative, and it is hard to find people that are not willing to help a fellow classmate no matter what the problem may be. I have learned so much both in and out of the classroom, and I am looking forward to everything else that is to come!"

"Good reputation, strong network. The academics are geared more towards those with significant business experience already (as are most MBA programs), so it can be an extra workload for career switchers."

"MIT Sloan's relevancy in today's world of entrepreneurship, technology, and analytics in extremely compelling. The school has extremely strong global brand recognition and also allows it students the flexibility to do nearly whatever they desire to pursue. The diversity - both from a student body and experiential perspective - has been extremely rewarding. Socially, the school is a blast with immediate access to Boston a major plus. MIT is somewhat misunderstood from the standpoint of prospective students - the business school brand is not well defined, likely a symptom of its less than stellar Administrative capacity/organization. Overall, MIT Sloan is a fabulous program, best suited for people who like to explore outside the box, drive their own careers, and be surrounded by the thriving start-up/tech/Boston community."
