MIT Biology really values its graduate students, and many of our department-wide events are student-driven. Even the recruitment weekend, where accepted students are invited to campus, is run entirely by graduate students. I found it really reassuring that the department entrusts its students with so much responsibility, which I’ve found to be true in my classes and in lab as well. The professors treat you as an equal and give you a lot of freedom to pursue your interests.
