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
Last year, I put more stock in the Washington Monthly’s rankings, mainly because they took the time to explain how they came up with them. U.S. News’ rankings, however, seem to put a lot of weight on some generally useless areas.
It’s tough coming up with criteria for these sorts of things, but based on MIT’s placement, I’d say the Washington Monthly does a much better job than U.S. News.
