I attended MIT for a few courses while a graduate student at Harvard University under Harvard's cross-registration program.

The thing that most stood out about MIT were the courses and assignments. I went to a very good technical school for my undergraduate coursework, but MIT's course and assignment structure is the best I've ever encountered as far as ensuring that the students truly understand the material.

At many other universities, you can get great grades by memorizing formulas without understanding what they truly mean -- not MIT. If you manage great grades there, you deserve them! If you want to learn, you want to come here.

With that said, the campus is a little drab, and some others (like Harvard across the river) are much nicer. But if you're in a technical field (engineering, computer science, etc.), it's impossible to go wrong with MIT.
