Junior: MIT is an outstanding university with numerous and diverse opportunities in research and academics. Classes at MIT are indeed difficult, with homework and associated studying consuming a large chunk of time. The beauty of this is that it pushes students to go above and beyond their previous understanding of what they believed themselves to be capable of. Additionally, the explorative and creative atmosphere which springs from the vibrancy of the student body and the faculty is second to none. There are so many chances to do great things at MIT, even as an undergrad!


Freshman: An amazing school with so many different positive qualities about it! There's also a lot of balance - Greek life doesn't dominate but it's still there and pretty open to most people. Academics are challenging/rigorous but so captivating that you're motivated to work hard. There is a variety of social, political, economic, religious views represented on campus and yet almost everyone is respectful and open about getting to know about why you think the way you do. To cut a long story short - best college in the world, and I couldn't be happier.


Junior: Brown University has been an incredible experience and has allowed me to pursue passions that I wasn't even aware I was interested in! The unique open curriculum allows students to take courses from a broad range of subjects and helps to ensure they find the right area of study. I personally believed I wanted to go into biomedical engineering, however, after taking a variety of classes at Brown in environmental studies, I have switched my major. Every teacher, student, and dean is so incredibly passionate about the work and everyone is constantly striving to be better which makes the University an amazing place and experience!
Niche User: I got accepted for Astronomy/Astrophysics at the Daytona Beach Campus. I’m thrilled about this. I was emailing the Senior Assistant Director of Admissions Megan Spurrel, and I 90% do not recommend contacting her with questions and you’re better off emailing someone else on the admissions team. I was asking about the Worldwide program and wondering if I would be able to transfer to it if my major was offered by the program and whatnot (it’s not.) Never did I say I definitely wanted to transfer, and I never asked her to cancel my application but she took it upon herself to do so (I emailed her back before she did, thankfully.) I find it ridiculous that she would assume that was okay when I was ONLY INQUIRING. I’ve read through the emails, there is no way she should’ve gotten confused and believed it was alright to cancel my application. Besides her, I’ve heard nothing but good things about the institution. I hope that everything works out so I can attend!
