    Pros

    At MIT you get a unique opportunity to work with or just be around and get a chance to get to know some of the greates minds in almost every field: engineering, life sciences, business, computer and material sciences, etc. In addition, there are a lot of activities that stimulate both professional and personal growth.

    Cons

    Very competitive and hence might be some difficulties in establishing collaborations.
