I chose to go to MIT because I wanted to go somewhere I would be challenged, where I would get to work with smart people on exciting research. I also wanted to live in a vibrant and fun community. I am happy to say that both MIT and Cambridge have met my expectations.

I have met all sorts of cool people here, and there are plenty of clubs and activities to get involved with on campus. I've taken part in the anime club, the chess club, and my dorm's government. MIT also has an excellent PE program; I've taken the opportunity to learn ice skating and brushed up on my tennis skills. I like the environment at my lab as well (the Laboratory for Computer Science); it's pretty open and casual, and there is all sorts of interesting research going on in the building.

The location is great as well. Boston is an incredibly compact city; it's easy to take a walking tour of the city. It's fun to just wander around and browse the streets; there are plenty of unique shops and restaurants in the area. Driving is as bad as you've heard, but public transit is great. Housing is a bit pricey and tough to find, but at least it's not as bad as the Bay Area.
