What school was unexpectedly your least favorite when you visited?
My big surprise was that my daughter and I had identical reactions to MIT. Even though she wanted to be an engineer we both instantly loathed the place. The presenter began by saying that they were not looking for well balanced applicants. The tour guide's script was filled with the sophomoric pranks the student body had pulled. The campus was one of the least appealing we visited. I just felt extremely anxious the entire time I was on campus and couldn't wait to leave.2583 replies
