Describe one of your most memorable MIT moments.
During my sophomore year, my friends and I pulled a all-nighter studying in Baker and then spontaneously decided to get a cab to go to iHop in Harvard school at 4AM in the morning. We had ordered all you can eat pancakes and I had never had so many pancakes in my life. We couldn’t find any cab after we were done, so we had to walk back to the campus in the middle of a crazy snow storm. It was so much fun.
