Those of you who are savvy surfers of this site will note that our page on “The Match” has displayed the dreaded “coming soon” message for the better part of the fall. I apologize for this, and thanks to all of you who sent me gentle reminder emails. :-)
The page has finally been updated, and I think it’s a good overview. I’m hoping, however, that current MIT students (and alums, if any feel like weighing in!) will comment in this thread and add their thoughts on the topic. What qualities do you think make good matches to the undergraduate culture of MIT – academic, social, and otherwise? Do you have any anecdotes from your MIT experience that will help illustrate the qualities we’ve outlined?
