The website describes the event as a “free service run by students, in association with the MIT Young Alumni Club, the Harvard Med School Student Council and other communities” including “MIT grads, alumni, ugrads and others; Harvard grads, alumni, ugrads and others; Wellesley alumni and ugrads.” However, Jon Monsarrat, a 34-year old MIT business graduate, apparently organized the event on his own, as none of the listed sponsors claim any involvement with the service or know of any other genuine participants.
The survey included questions about the participant’s religion, smoking preference, idea of a romantic date, favorite movie, weekend activities and hobbies.
CAMBRIDGE - After Anna Tang and her boyfriend broke up three weeks ago, prosecutors say, the Wellesley College junior began sending him e-mails telling him she would kill him. At about a.m., Tang sneaked into his dorm room at MIT, climbed on top of him as he slept, and plunged a knife into his back, Assistant District Attorney Suzanne Kontz said in Cambridge District Court yesterday, where Tang was arraigned.
The man woke, turned around, and tried to fight her off, but Tang kept stabbing him.

🙂 I know you’re busy and this whole dating thing feels like a burden. “HMS Student Council had absolutely no part whatsoever in setting up, sponsoring, promoting, or hosting the match other than what I just described,” said Kratz.
Love that ‘Up late talking and snuggling on the sofa’ and ‘Singing to me.’ Sure, I’ll play guitar & sing for you. Being romanced by a tall, fun, handsome gentleman will be quite nice! Johannes Kratz, of the Harvard Medical School Council, said that when he was contacted by Monsarrat, he agreed to inform medical students about the Match-Up and said that it would be fine to be listed as a participant, but had no further contact with Monsarrat.
The 19-year-old MIT student, who was not identified, is in serious condition at a local hospital, and Tang, who prosecutors said stabbed him seven times, was held without bail until next Tuesday, when she will return to court for a dangerousness hearing.
Tang, a slight woman who wore blue hospital scrubs in court, was charged with armed assault with intent to murder and home invasion. Tang's lawyer, John Valerio of Andover, described the suspect as a "meek, mild-mannered young lady," originally from South Bend, Ind., who is "in a great deal of distress.""She's in a state of shock," he said after the arraignment, adding that he would investigate the prosecution's allegations.
