I know that we get on opportunity to study at MIT for a year as a part of the Cambridge-MIT exchange. Would this make me look better to American employers?
It would be great as it gets you connections on the ground.

Plus there are a boat load of tech companies in Boston and the burbs...once you get past the obvious big named ones, look into Lexington/Bedford/Burlington to a lot of high money but smaller outfits that'll be worth getting in touch with, they're all in the burbs.

Though one thing about MIT, see if you can blag housing because if it's not including, you won't be staying in their campus condo's as they're $3.5K a month in rent. Well the nice, newish one is.

Hmm, I don't know about the campus housing on the west side, but East Campus and Senior House are about $3.5K a semester, not a month.

I think that the MIT networking will be wonderful. It really helps if an MIT prof takes a cotton to the student.

If it's per semester, they might want to clear that up as it's what put a couple of folks I know from moving in...they got a flat share up the road instead

Then again, one was a visiting lecturer so might not have been offered the student rate.

Here is the MIT rate chart on undergraduate housing. It is clearly marked "per semester."

The "old" buildings are on the east side of the campus. The newer ones on the western side charge more.

Undergrad rate....yeah, don't know how/if it differs to post grad.

Either way, it's a nice campus and nice area.
