Student & Graduate Reviews

4.1 out of 5 stars
MatSciGuy - 8/19/2015
Degree: Engineering
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."

"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."

"It was one of the greatest experiences of my life. The professors were fantastic, my classmates and peers were without equal, and the courses were by and large engaging and informative."

MIT computer science grad 2010 - 6/8/2015
Degree: Computer Science
Graduation Year: 2010
"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)."

Degree: Chemical Engineering
Graduation Year: 2015
"The college provides a lot of exceptional opportunities, and many of the courses are challenging, relevant, and current. The other students are great to work with. However, the financial aid department is very poorly organized and the process is not clear, the faculty and some graduate students are sexist at times, and although there is an effort to provide support for students facing difficulties, many students are not reached."
