Why I Chose MIT: I chose MIT because it had the perfect balance that I was seeking in a school. I wanted a school that was challenging, and I wanted to continue my volleyball career. MIT has both. I get the chance to compete at a high level athletically while pursuing a degree at one of the most challenging schools in the world. There wasn't another school that had a more perfect balance for me.
