    Feedback needed: MIT | Portugal program website

    Hi All

    I'm involved in an education/research collaboration between MIT and several Portuguese universities and am in the process of re evaluating the usability and content of our website http://www.mitportugal.org.

    If a few of you could fill out the survey (see Survey Monkey) link, I would really appreciate. If you are admitted to MIT and plan to attend our open house (TBA), I'll gladly buy you a beer for your services

    http://www.surveymonkey.com/s.aspx?s...G6P7aaRA_3d_3d

    Many Thanks!
    Andy

    PS - MCP program group adcoms wrap up today. I think acceptance (phone calls to first-rounders) notifications will start next week some time.

    a little help from you folks would go a long way so please consider taking 5-10 minutes.

    the MIT open house is April 4-6 for those interested in a beer

    I am actually really interested in the portugal program and had already perused the site. I was apprehensive about going back to it since I don't know yet about my admission status and it would be sad to get re-excited about the projects if I don't get in!

    I filled out the survey, although I didn't apply to MIT. I thought it was well done.

    Thanks guys

    nvijaya - did you apply for the MCP and the MST in civil engineering? or just the MCP through DUSP?

    I just applied to MCP, because I'm missing 2 semesters of calc that are required for the MST. If I am accepted to the MCP I was going to calc it up this summer and the fall and apply for the MST for 2010. I met with Nigel Wilson this summer and he said if you get into one program, you pretty much have a 98 percent chance of getting into the other one when you apply during your first year.

    Wise choice. DUSP is way more cool

    Speaking of MST, I think if I got in to MIT (hah!) I would have to take that Airline Industries class. It looks quite interesting (I've always been an airline nerd though).

    I've heard it's a great class. There are quite a few MST's who specialize in airlines, you could be one of them

    Alright I took a look at the site and put some comments in survey monkey. Basically I think it's straightforward but could use more graphics... it's a lot of written content, it'd be nice to have some visual relief.

    all in all, good job!
