One reason I chose MIT was the first-year classes. Encompassing biochemistry, genetics, and quantitative biology, these classes are led by professors who value teaching. Because people come into MIT with different strengths and backgrounds, the classes are a good way of reviewing familiar material as well as exploring outside of your comfort zone. As a result, students find new areas of interest and rotate in laboratories they would not have previously considered.
