Why I Chose MIT: I chose MIT because as a school, it provided me with the largest opportunity for growth. I would be pushed academically like never before. I would be exposed to new perspectives and cultures. I would be able to continue to develop as an athlete in a competitive and exciting atmosphere. When looking at my life and considering where I want to be 10 years down the road, MIT is the best fit for my aspirations. Living with and learning from the top students, professors, and companies will undoubtedly provide me with an unparalleled support network and limitless opportunities. MIT is a catalyst for development. It is the only place in the world I would want to be.
