MIT Admissions

Massachusetts Institute of Technology


Bryan O. '07

I almost set my room on fire once when I tried to power a robot from an electrical socket. 10 years later, they admitted me to MIT. Bryan's my name and science is my game. I'm currently a senior at MIT majoring in Course 2 and minoring in BME; that's MIT-speak for Mechanical Engineering (2) and Biomedical Engineering (BME). Originally from Massachusetts and now most recently from Texas, I've done my tour of different climates.

I've recently taken akin to sour things like grapefruits and lemons, but I'm sure that will end soon. Last year, I was all about the ice cream, and I still am. The things that really get me excited in life include (but are not limited to): science, indie rock bands, photo safaris with my camera, last minute travel plans, meeting new people, and learning to bhangra dance.

At MIT, I can be found either asleep at ZBT, one of MIT's twenty-something fraternities, working on my thesis in the Biotechnology Process Engineering Center, running along the Charles River, taking advantage of free printing in the Athena cluster, or just wandering the hallways looking for something to do. I think one of MIT's best attributes is its devotion to discovering the unknown, so if you have a question, ask it. If you have a hunch, go for it. My life is like a roller coaster; the only difference now is that I can design them too.
