I would like to post more entries this summer, but this is an MIT blog and I’m in Switzerland. I could ramble philosophically about MIT life – I’ve certainly done it before – but a lot of my big rambles have been posted already, and I’m not sure what you guys want to hear about.
So tell me. What topics would you like to see entries about? If you make reasonable suggestions I might comply with your requests.
Could you tell us more about what happens during Orientation? I think I pretty much understand the housing lottery now, but what else happens during Orientation?
How about how you made your close friends?
Advice about HASS and HASS-D classes?
What about Are Four years enough to get advantage of all the resources MIT has to offer for a student?
By the way, It is nice you ask your readers. It make us feel appreciated
Hmm… I’d love to hear about the work in Switzerland, but if you’re sticking to MIT-related things, perhaps rambling about student life in general again wouldn’t be that bad of an idea.
ummmm some pic about you
i m chinese ,want to make friends to you .
A lot of my friends got into great universities, but ended up attending local community colleges because they simply couldn’t afford a four-year college (apparently the universities thought otherwise and calculated unrealistically high expected contributions for their families). How can a student of extremely limited resources procure the funds to attend MIT? Could you please discuss the type of jobs available for freshmen (and other students)on campus and other things MIT students do to afford college. Does MIT offer sholarships to students who have demonstrated exceptional academic merit?
for what it’s worth, i think you should keep blogging about switzerland here. true, you’re not at mit, nor did mit arrange your internship(?) for you, but working in switzerland for the summer is definately a part of your mit experience. i’ve found that mit can help open doors for opportunities like this and that more of the undergraduate population should take advantage of study-abroad/working-abroad opportunities–they’re great! i’m currently in germany through a fellowship i recieved. this is possibly one of the best experiences i’ve had as an undergraduate and mit has definately prepared me for it.
just my 2 cents.
