Off the Court at MIT: Major is undecided.

Why I Chose MIT: I was looking for a school that would really push me both academically and athletically. MIT is the best of both worlds, with arguably the best academic program in the country and with a very strong volleyball program as well. And even more than that, I wanted to be surrounded by the students, teachers, and coaches at MIT because I know that they will push me to be the best that I can be.
