Looking back, MIT wasn't all it's hyped up to be. If I had it to do again, I likely would choose to go to a different school. That's not to say that MIT is all bad. It does have a great extracurricular program, the people there are great, I made a lot of close friends there, and learned a lot. The problem is the stress and pressure you're under while you're there. Pressure is a good thing in the right doses, but MIT takes it too far. The majority of students at the school are broken down, and 90% of the conversations I had with other students were all about the amount of work we had to do and how stressed out we were. During my four years there, I had one friend kill himself, had another friend try multiple times, and two friends had nervous breakdowns and had to go home. That being said, if you can survive the pressure, the prestige of the school will help you out a lot after graduation.
