Degree: Aerospace Engineering
Graduation Year: 2016

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 cons are affordability of living, school use of technology, social life, transportation and financial aid for international students.

Degree: Mechanical Engineering
Graduation Year: 2017

While the academics and research make MIT stand out, the lack of a campus feel and the absolutely atrocious selection of dining on campus and in the area is very disheartening.

The graduate program is amazing. But especially the networking at MIT is great, there are so many activities organized and you are really helped networking and searching for jobs. Method of teaching is different and really motivating. And all students try to achieve the best!

Degree: MBA

Boston is a tough and expensive place to live, but attending MIT makes up for all of the cons. Amazing school in a great location with attentive and helpful faculty and a group of smart students who want to see their classmates succeed.

Pros - it's an academically rigorous program which enables students to grow in multiple facets of their professional life. Cons - it's expensive (tuition + living expenses) but it's definitely worthwhile for the experience.
