Admissions Interview: No - Interviews are conducted by alumni at local locations.
Information Session: Yes - The session was VERY good. We were taken across campus into a lecture hall where a senior undergraduate student talked to us in an informal manor, but it was still incredibly informative.
Campus Tour: Yes - The tour was led by an informative student guide in a group of about 7. We toured the athletic and student centers, a research lab, some libraries, and overall it gave us a good feel. No dorms though.
Overnight Visit: No - n/a
Classroom Visit: Yes - We did not actually go to a class in session, but our info session was in a lecture hall, and we were given the opportunity to peek in on many different types of classrooms and labs.

Campus Visit Notes for Massachusetts Institute of Technology
I left MIT with the impression that it was the perfect school for me, and that I would love to spend four years of my life there. The academic atmosphere of well rounded-ness and intelligence is awesome. The campus is easy to navigate and the facilities are top-notch. The info session was good because we didn't feel like we were being read a script, and the tour did not shy away of some less than stellar facilities. Overall, I really do hope that I can return as a student.
Hotel/Lodging Recommendations or Comments:
There are many area hotels, and even some cheaper farther out hotels are within easy distance to campus thanks to the excellent public transit system.
Dining/Restaurant Recommendations or Comments:
We ate one lunch on campus. There were a wide variety of fresh options available. The surrounding area (especially around Harvard Square) has many high quality restaurants.
Other Comments (Transportation, local attractions, parking, etc.):
As I said before public transit is pretty good, walking is made easy, and parking was free with the tour. Bikes are INCREDIBLY popular among students, all buildings have parking for hundreds of bikes.
