MIT is a place where you are with the smartest and brightest students in the country. The courses are difficult, but they prepare you well to do research in the future. The school also provides great support in terms of resources and personal needs.

Fantastic degree program. MIT has been a great experience, awesome professors, classmates, clubs, will never forget my sorority. The campus had so much history and beauty, I wish I was still there, but can't beat the west coast. I recommend MIT to everyone and anyone who wants to pursue a technical degree.

Pros Great Professors and programs Proximity to the city of Boston Funding for PhD and thesis MS students usually available Quality and quantity of MIT dorms for grad students (non-family dorms) Cons Cost of Living in Cambridge and Boston Cost of MIT Family housing is very high, taking into account the quality of the buildings/apartments and the student stipends (roughly 75% to 80% of the stipend goes to housing)

MIT has a competitive and somewhat stressful environment, but the academics and research happening here is exciting and top-notch. MIT opens you up to a whole network of future employers. Don't expect to have much of a social life, but when you do get out Boston and Cambridge are fun to explore.

MIT is a fast pace place. You are surrounded by brilliant people which is awesome but can also be overwhelming. Cambridge is a great place to do graduate school.

MIT is a surprisingly social place, with a surprising amount of fun to be had. The student body is fairly diverse, with most grads being extremely good at a hobby or two. Most people here are passionate about something besides academics, and it is refreshing to mix with musicians, athletes, and other talent.

Great school. Labs well established. Outside of labs, things are falling apart. Technology is outdated. Undergraduates are too focused on doing Psets and not actually learning. Most people have tunnel vision, as is to be expected of an institution of higher learning. Many very talented people lacking basic life skills, and this mantra is well supported by the institution. However, great education if you can navigate the pot holed road set forth. Sound theoretical basis, though appreciation for practicality varies substantially from Prof to Prof.

Studying at MIT and interacting with the extremely nice and helpful faculty and staff is a really enjoyable experience, although it's tough and highly competitive.
