It's been challenging and engaging, but unnecessarily frustrating at times, too. I would not have enjoyed being an undergraduate here. A word of warning—the MIT brand name is not always as useful as people would like to suggest. Perhaps it will get you a job, but mentioning where you go to school can, and has, ended otherwise friendly conversations. People are intimidated by the name. They shouldn't be. It's part of the (fictional) mystique.
responseYeah, I had a similar experience. People can be more intimidated (or in love with) the brand than necessary. It can be a bit deleterious to conversations and social relationships…
