Why I Chose MIT: I chose MIT because I was inspired by the current students. I am very excited to have the opportunity to join a family of extremely driven, creative, awesome people and to work together to achieve great success. It seemed like a great match- where people really care about academics, but then can take that same intensity to athletics and everything else they do. There are so many cool things happening at MIT, and I can't wait to begin exploring the opportunities and challenges that MIT offers!
