You think you want to be a scientist or an engineer. But be realistic — what do you, a teenager, know of science and engineering?

You … applied to [MIT], not out of any sophisticated understanding of the choices you are making, but because society … sold you a … brand. … You crave … respect and admiration…. You see the status that Bill Gates and Steve Jobs have achieved, and hope that a career in technology will be your salvation. But you will find none here.
