"The environment at MIT is very intense and competitive but truly creates great opportunities for success by also being stimulating and challenging. Industrial and academic relations are excellent. Quality of education is definitely very high and even though the workload can be quite high, the overall satisfaction, feeling of accomplishment, and the new opportunities coming with an MIT degree justify the difficult moments along the way."

"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."
