Why I Chose MIT: Our university motto mens et manus, meaning "Mind and Hand", exemplifies why I decided to attend MIT. After visiting several universities it was very clear MIT was the best place to develop my quantitative acumen and problem solving skills. MIT equally stresses the theoretics behind science and engineering, which is critical for fundamentally analyzing any system, and the ability to fully apply those theories to real problems.
