MOST is a really good school. It gets a lot of flack for being a tough school, but it's not only hard, it's a really good school with great programs. The professors, TA's and other administrators will help you succeed and help you pass. The coursework is hard, but every student is given all the tools necessary to succeed here.
The campus is really nice too! Small and easy to navigate, the campus is both cool and charming.

I love this school because almost everyone is an engineer! Everyone has the same interests, like math, sciences, video games, and some outdoor activities. I wish sports were a little more prominent but it makes sense why they aren't. It's a nerd school!
Last year, I went to a summer camp at MS&T, and it was amazing! All the professors I had a chance to talk to were very nice and genuinely seemed to care about the students they taught. During this camp I had the opportunity to check out the campus and really get a feel for the college. I was pleasantly surprised! The food was pretty good, the dorms were great, and the students were friendly and helpful.
