  • This was a great bar. Went out there several times over the past four years. Interesting building choices for a bar; many of them have this rustic dorm-like feel and others even feel like a fraternity out of a movie! Don't go to the academic buildings because they are kind of a downer. Best thing about this bar is the memes. Would have given 5 stars except for it being incredibly hard to find a women's bathroom.
  • This is certainly one of the most prestigious institutions in this country, and a great one, nonetheless, for individuals looking to pursue engineering and or other core technical courses required essentially by default in this day and age. The world is a malignant and unforgiving place at best, but to gain admission into this facility is truly an austere goal that many attempt but only few will actually achieve. Good luck to everyone currently enrolled or looking to get in(including myself). The sky isn't the limit, it's what you make it.
  • A visit of the MIT was a dream of my childhood in the GDR/ East Germany in the sixties. In 2012 we visited Boston together with our daughter and two grandchildren of four. Thanks for the impressions. Education and science are essential for world openness.
  • Looks like one of the most prestigious place to study engineering. With hardwork and effort, I will motivate myself even further to matriculate this renowned university. Wish you all luck (and to myself) to attain your goals!
