The biology program at MIT is amazing- the school as a whole can be kind of annoying to deal with, but the department shields us from much of that. Everything is set up so that you really get to know your classmates and the department treats us very well. The lab I work in is filled with very talented people and has funding from the Howard Hughes Medical institute so we essentially have a blank check for any items under $1000 and larger items are almost as simple to get (we got a $250,000 piece of equipment two years ago). We also filed a patent on the research that I am working on and we are in the process of licencing it to several companies so the research that I do will almost certainly be useful to society. Although the MIT campus is rather unnatractive, being about a mile from downtown Boston is great- only New York and possible San Francisco has more to offer than this area.
