Stanford vs. MIT for ChemE PhD?


Recommended Posts

I feel Stanford will lead to a greater quality of life because of its overall feel, but MIT will push me to my maximum potential because of the rigor and the abundance of research that goes on there. I'm still at the point where I really can't decide between the two. There are several great advisers I could have at both schools whose research matches my interests.

Any suggestions for how to make this decision?

If the research and academic fit are equal, I would start considering external factors like weather, location, etc. I'm in a similar position and for me, the weather is one of the deciding factors. Have you visited either school yet? Visiting can really change your mind about a school; my fourth choice became my top choice after a visit.
