Why did you decide to ENROLL at MIT for your graduate school?
The opportunity offered by this institution is unmatched. The available resources and ability to interact with experts in your filed truly enables you to thrive here. I wanted to be a part of this team.

What do you wish you would have known before deciding on MIT?
Intimidation is okay. You should choose to embrace it as a natural feeling that accompanies entering a graduate program at any institution. These feelings don’t speak on your ability to succeed here.
