Earlier this year, Institutional Research administered a Senior Survey to roughly 1,100 fourth-year undergraduates. The survey asked students to describe their plans after college, to rate various aspects of their college education, and to suggest ways to make the MIT experience a more positive one for students who come after them. The response rate was 70 percent.
MIT runs the Senior Survey every two years in conjunction with peer schools, allowing for trend and comparative analyses. This was MIT's fifth administration of this survey.
