Great tour, great campus. Very informative. 10% chance of intake - shows how selective the university is to applicants. The tour took approx 90 minutes.

Great tour by Charlie, enthusiastic ex-student. Lots of anecdotes supplemented by sufficient history. Visited the insides and outsides of older and newer buildings at a good pace. Good insight into the atmosphere of MIT.

We got a kick hearing about all the hacks and the hack code of ethics. The students are so creative! The background of the university and history of the buildings was terrific. We would certainly recommend this tour and Austin was a fantastic guide.
