RA deadline Q & A

Posted in: Process & Statistics

Hello, dear RA applicants! 

It's almost winter break and you are trying to finish up all your applications when you'd rather be hanging out. 

We understand and want this process to be as painless as possible! 

Here are the most important things to keep in mind as you wrap your MIT application:

  • Regular Action applications should be submitted by 11:59pm Eastern Time on January 1. 
  • *NEW* If you are having trouble submitting Part 2, please go to the bottom of each page of the document, select save and continue through the entire document and resubmit. We find this fixes most submission problems. 
  • 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 January 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... read the post »

Posted in: Process & Statistics

Hello party people! 

I know. November 1 is looming and you are probably feeling like Gary here:

 

As admissions counselor on duty today, I've been helping answer your calls and want you to know that you aren't alone! Lots of students have the same questions you do, so I'm listing the most common questions we're getting below. I will be monitoring the blog through the deadline, so you can ask here as well!

  • Early Action applications should be submitted by 11:59pm Eastern Time on November 1.
  • 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 10-14 days for the processing of all submitted materials. Items are not posted... read the post »

QuestBridge 2016 FAQ

Posted in: Miscellaneous

This is a blog entry specifically for finalists in the QuestBridge National College Match. If you don’t know what this is, don’t worry! If you are a finalist – congratulations! We’re excited to have you applying to MIT through QuestBridge.

Here are some FAQs that QuestBridge applicants often have at this stage:

Q: What do I do next?

A: First, you should create a MyMIT account. Then you should complete the MIT application Part 1 (biographical form), and if you are applying for the Match, check off that you are applying Early Action. You do not need to complete the Part 2 (essays, activities, awards) - we will use your QuestBridge application for that. In the Part 1, when you come to the application fee, choose the fee waiver option. There is no need to follow up by mailing a fee waiver to us.

Q: I am taking my tests in November/December/January. Am I still eligible for the Match?

A: If you have not completed all the testing requirements by the October test dates, you will... read the post »

2020 Admitted Student Gatherings

Posted in: Miscellaneous

With Campus Preview Weekend just a few weeks away (sign up here if you haven’t done so already), early spring is an exciting time for the MIT community. Newly admitted students have received their acceptance letters, current students are getting ready for spring break, and admissions officers are celebrating the end of application season. Also, this year it looks like the lingering winter weather has finally left us…but don’t quote me on that.

For all the newly admitted students out there, we hope you are pumped for what the next few months have in store. It all really begins next week. We’ve been working with our incredible team of Educational Counselors and other great alumni to put together admitted student gatherings to help welcome you to MIT. Starting this Saturday (March 19), MIT alumni from around the world will host get-togethers in their hometowns for students admitted to the class of 2020. These gatherings offer fantastic opportunities to meet some of your potential... read the post »
