A great thing about MIT is how down-to-earth and humble everyone is. A few months after knowing someone, you will sometimes discover that they were the US Math Champion, or has a patent, etc…I would not experience the same at surrounding schools such as BC or Harvard, where kids tend to be wealthier and snootier.Of course everywhere you go, there will be those few know-it-alls, but I think people at MIT are very approachable. Also, on the side-note, although we aren't know for our looks and glamour, you will find great personality and some amazing, intelligent people filled with ideas. But overall, I think you can have some of the most interesting conversations with MIT people. In terms of academics, MIT is challenging, but DO-able. (much more do-able than I expected!) I'm not a genius, but I do know my priorities, which is what gets me through MIT. Also, I have great friends by my side that makes this school so much greater. I think some kids get caught up in getting their straight A's that they isolate themselves from making friends. Don't do this—know the balance needed! I would much rather have a few B's here and there and be happy! (but obviously, don't do the opposite…like just go to frat parties 24/7 and get C's)
