Why did you decide to ENROLL at MIT for your graduate school?
I felt that the Biology PhD program at MIT would challenge me greatly. Additionally during my interview I had a great time speaking with the faculty in the department, which gave me confidence that I would be able to find great mentors.

What do you wish you would have known before deciding on MIT?
I wish I had just heard a little more about how people have gone about dealing with the stresses and challenges of being in a graduate program at MIT. After 4 years on campus, I have learned that there are so many resources that can help students. I definitely wish I had known more about these my first year on campus.
