Re: student groups. Do you help with the tours? I am visiting MIT next summer and I am wondering.... If, say the maths students or engineering students do the tours (if you want to apply to those programs).

I don't help with tours (I think this is true no matter which of several interpretations of "tours" you take). I don't really understand the second question — there are lots of MIT students who study neither math nor engineering; I don't think most tours are major-specific in any way, and that's probably a good thing since lots of people don't come in knowing what they're going to study. I have no idea what the major distribution of tour-givers is, but I'm pretty sure everybody who gives a tour will have some baseline understanding of MIT in general and will be able to talk about most majors and most aspects of MIT or at least direct you to the right resources.
