I Love This F****** Place! That statement diverges from the everyday philosophy behind MIT, but obviously the difference between the IHTFPers and the ILTFPers can be boiled down to two words: Career Fair.
IHTFP = Never been to an MIT career fair
ILTFP = Took full advantage of said career fair
The average number of job offers awaiting an MIT graduate is 2.6, meaning companies actively recruit here, meaning in order to draw us in they have to offer us free stuff. 281 companies took up two entire floors of the athletic center, almost all giving away exciting swag. Here's a quick sample of what I got:
Laptop Keyboard Light
128 mb Flash Drive
3D Printed Ball Bearing
30 Day Trial of SolidWorks
iPod Nano Case
4 Rubik's Cubes
4 Coffee Mugs
That's not even mentioning the massive addition to my free t-shirt collection that happened today. Guess how many got today! GUESS!
8 FREE T-SHIRTS IN ONE DAY!!!
(One T-Shirt Not Shown, It Wouldn't Fit On The Table)
I'm up to 17 total and going strong, how many do we think I'll have by the end of the year?
Here are some glamour shots of all my swag!
Everybody thinking of applying to MIT, don't listen to anything anybody tells you about this place being too intense or too hard. Don't listen to people that say undergrad sucks and that there are better places.
