SO I WAS ACCEPTED TO BOTH MIT AND HARVARD UNDER THE EARLY ACTION PROGRAM... MY PROBLEM IS THAT I DON'T KNOW WHICH SCHOOL I SHOULD CHOOSE... MY HEART IS WITH MIT, BUT I WANT TO MAJOR IN BIOCHEMISTRY AND MIT DOES NOT HAVE A BIOCHEM MAJOR AND HARVARD DOES.... IF I CHOOSE MIT I WILL DO A CHEMISTRY MAJOR... WHAT SHOULD I DO???

Go with your heart. MIT is so much better.

If you want to go to MIT, then go. You can always cross-register at Harvard.

Go to Harvard. Tell MIT immediately that you are withdrawing your acceptance and that they should accept some other deserving student named Tim.

Go for what u want to do. i say harvard. why do u want to give up what u wanna pursue just cuz its not available at mit? jeez

By aa on Sunday, February 09, 2003 - 08:32 am: Edit

i think harvard is better in the sense is good(and many times excellent) in various majors...so if you change your idea of a major you will have no problem chosing it in harvard.
in mit its deeper in mathematics and business...
but as before it has been mentioned cross register...
ill chose harvard this time

You got into one of the 2 best schools in the country. You have nothing to complain about.

By heart on Sunday, February 09, 2003 - 06:33 pm: Edit

I don't like MIT, but go with your heart. Go to the school you feel you most want to go to. If it is MIT, then go to MIT.

By .o.o.o on Sunday, February 09, 2003 - 07:09 pm: Edit

i hear the people are hotter at harvard than at MIT...

By ME on Sunday, February 09, 2003 - 10:00 pm: Edit

WTF??!

By humbleadvice on Sunday, February 09, 2003 - 10:31 pm: Edit

They are both world-class schools. For someone who could manage to get acceptance to both, you sure sound a wee bit myopic. Look outside of the prestige and brands for a moment. You want to pursue biochem ---> harvard is most prolific in biochem research ---> they have a specified program ---> you can benefit from the programs "base" per se. my question is, do you want to concentrate on biochem, or concentrate on going to a particular school? attack the programs first, then get hung up on the schools. it's not like any one is gonna be like "oh my god, she gave up mit for harvard!" and if you're really stuck on mit, the schools do have a cross-registe program as "sauce" said.

which school is better in pure science??
MIT or HArvard???

By Lelon on Monday, February 10, 2003 - 07:30 pm: Edit

I got a 1510.

By Pure science on Monday, February 10, 2003 - 11:21 pm: Edit

Harvard is better at pure science. If you REALLY want to do pure science though, try Caltech.
