    There is no MIT University
    MIT is an excellent school, but it is not for everyone. It's students have - and need - a high degree of independence,

    It's a pressure cooker for undergrads. I'm not sure I would recommend it for anyone except those who combine the highest levels of intelligence with a tremendous work ethic.

    In spite of a more humble innate intelligence, I survived grad school in Physics there by working very, very hard and by having worked hard and done well (learned a lot) as an undergrad at LSU.

    The undergrad experience there would have destroyed me. I was nowhere near ready for it coming out of Louisiana public schools.
