Your February Updates & Notes Form

Posted in: Miscellaneous, Process & Statistics

Hi Everyone,

The MIT February Updates & Notes Form is now available on MyMIT. Wait! Before you fill this form out, please read some important info below.

First, though, relax! This is easy, and you don’t need to worry about “getting it wrong” -- don’t stress!

What is it?
The MIT February Updates & Notes Form is an online form that is required of all students (including those admitted or deferred in Early Action), and is to be completed by you, the applicant.

Who should fill it out?
Everyone! Even those already accepted in Early Action.

When should I fill it out?
As soon as possible after grades are available for the fall semester or second quarter. (If your school uses a trimester schedule, please use your first trimester grades, even if we already have them.) Please send us the form once your grades are released, OR by... read the post »

Tips for the EA deferred

Posted in: Miscellaneous, Information

On Thursday, December 15th, we released decisions for Early Action (EA) applicants. There was a definitive resolution for those students who were admitted or denied in EA. Deferred students, however, will have to wait a little longer as we reconsider their cases in Regular Action (RA).

Many of you may still have questions so I'm posting a quick entry with some frequently asked questions and answers.

What new stuff should I send?
The only "new" thing you need to send in is the February Updates & Notes form. You'll use the FUN form to tell us your midyear grades and anything new that has happened or will happen. As always, you can send via fax (617-687-9184) or mail. The FUN form is due by February 15th.

You may still submit a supplemental portfolio, but you do not need to; I would only consider this if you were planning to do so during EA but ran out of time. If you are retaking tests in December or January, you may also designate MIT as a score recipient, and we'll add them... read the post »

RA deadline is approaching

Posted in: Miscellaneous

Hi all,

During the holidays, many admissions officers are out on break and only a small handful of people will be answering phones and emails. For all of you trying to get your Regular Action application in by the January 1 deadline, here are few FAQs that might help.

 

For RA students

What is the application deadline?
The deadline is January 1. This means you can click "submit" on your application any time on January 1 or before, but try not to wait until the last minute!

What happens if some of my school forms come in past the deadline?
It is perfectly fine if, through no fault of your own, your school forms (e.g. teacher recommendations, secondary school report, transcript) come in after the January 1 deadline. We are much more understanding of and flexible with late documents from schools than with late documents from the applicant.

I’m taking tests in January, will these count?
January is the last testing date that can be seen by the Admissions Committee... read the post »

Sunday night is the deadline for Early Action (EA)

Posted in: Miscellaneous

About the Early Action Deadline and Application Components
 

  • Early Action applications should be submitted by 11:59pm Eastern Time on November 1. (There is a small amount of grace period for students having trouble submitting their Parts 1 and 2.)
  • Your school/teachers may submit their materials after the deadline. We are much more flexible and understanding with teachers and schools. Your recommendations do not need to be in our office by November 1. They can arrive and be processed well after this date and you will still be fine.
  • Please note that materials only need to be “sent” to MIT, not “processed,” by the Nov. 1 deadline. Please allow five days for the processing of all submitted materials. Items are not posted directly to your MyMIT account from Naviance or the ApplyWithUs site. Materials requested through ApplyWithUs but sent to MIT through Naviance, fax or mail will not appear as submitted on the ApplyWithUs site. Check your MyMIT account to follow the... read the post »
