MIT in my time was a great place to go if you had enough initiative to strike out on your own a bit. There's not a lot of hand holding, and while you can get through by just doing what is expected of you, you miss what makes MIT truly great (though you do get the name recognition persk of the degree, which are not small). The thing that most impressed me about MIT was the way the school treated it's students more like adults than other schools. There's a lot of opportunity to gain a lot of valuable life experience, as well as valuable learning. There are downsides too: lots of freedom means a lot of freedom to make mistakes, academically, emotionally, socially. Students need to be prepared for the fact that it won't be easy, no matter how smart you are. If you've always found everything easy in school, you may be in for a rude shock.
