Why did you decide to ENROLL at MIT for your graduate school?
My field is very niche, and I believed that by coming to MIT it would give me the tools to make this niche field apply to a larger community of scientists and engineers.

What do you wish you would have known before deciding on MIT?
If you are nervous or scared or even if you feel like you don’t belong, just know that you aren’t alone. There are people just like you asking the same questions and worrying about the same things.
