Is it worth choosing a choosing a college with a lower-quality degree program because it has extracurriculars a school with a higher-quality degree program does not?

I'm looking at schools with good engineering programs because that is my intended major. However, extracurriculars like choral and theatrical groups are highly important to me as well. Is it worth forgoing a school like MIT just because MIT's extracurriclars are lacking? #extracurriculars #college-choice

I would recommend going to the higher quality program -- this will benefit you in future career opportunities. If you're interested in MIT for example, I would recommend speaking to a current student and asking them about the formal/informal extracurricular opportunities on campus. When I was visiting MIT's campus, there were bulletin boards with different flyers for choral / acapella groups on campus. Definitely dig deeper into exploring what extracurriculars they have to offer - you might be surprised!
