A friend of hers approaches us. Cue introduction Hi! Where do you go to school? I'm wearing a MIT jacket. My backpack lies beside me. We're in MIT's academic buildings. "I'm a student here. At MIT." "Really?" Random Guy At Starbucks What are you working on?" "I'm writing an international relations paper on global politics." Cool! Are you studying to be a lawyer? Where do you go to school?" No, actually I'm studying engineering at MIT." Oh! So you're like a genius? But you seem so down to earth! Did you have some traumatizing childhood experience that brought you down to earth?" "How is that relevant?" With the questions you ask, you should be a lawyer. Wanna go have some fun?" Excuse me? I need to finish my paper." Random Guy At The Computers Context: At a cluster of MIT computers and printers. I was printing study materials. Hey! You look good! What are you doing here? Uhm, thanks. I'm headed to the library." What!? But you're wearing a dress!? Do you go to MIT?? How bout I take you out? "Yeah, I go to MIT... and I'm going to the library..." The PhD Grad Student So you're an engineering student? What do you do? "I work in controls engineering, signals processing, and automation." Okay. But actually, do you do any real engineering? <p><a href="http://ryanandmath.tumblr.com/post/107463087770/alice-zielinski-is-currently-an-mit-undergraduate" class="tumblr_blog">ryanandmath</a>:</p> <blockquote><p><strong>Alice Zielinski</strong> is currently an MIT undergraduate studying aeronautical &amp; astronautical engineering and computer science &amp; electrical engineering. <a href="http://talkingpointsmemo.com/cafe/things-people-say-to-blond-engineers-at-mit">In this article</a>, she tells us that</p> <blockquote> <p><em>“Many MIT students recount questions about their GPA, test scores, magnificent things they’ve built, other accomplishments—while I often find myself trying to convince people that I actually attend MIT.
