RA Blogger Applications Due Wednesday 9/6 At Noon

Posted in: Miscellaneous

As stated in the original post, they were actually due on 8/31, but I forgot to remind you, so I've extended the deadline. :-)

If you wish to be considered, please get your application in on time!

We will try to make decisions by early next week, but the first priority is launching the new site, so we may be off by a few days.

Hey Ben, I have to take the SATs in October coming up, and I will have that score officially reported, but my prior SAT wasn't officially sent anywhere. If I go onto collegeboard's site there is a link "Send scores to schools." Is this still a valid/official way to send scores, just in case I score lower on a section my next time around? Thanks

I also have a second question I just found. On the Mid Year Grade Report it says to return the form at the end of the second quarter if your school uses a quarter based system. We have 4 marking periods divided into two semesters, however the 2nd one does not end until mid-to-end January, which would be after you will have reviewed my application (I intend to apply early action). Should I have it filled out at the end of the first marking period, or wait until the end of January as-is? Thanks again.

Well

I think I cant advice you anything for the mid year grade thing but as for the sat scores the link you noted is totally official one. You may use it to send scores to receipients of your choice. However if you are taking the sats in near future, you may not need to use that link (and pay extra).All scores upto six administration dates on which you took sat or sat subject test will be notified to four receipients,you will have to list them when you register for sat(fee is included with registration charges +any else you ask for(ofcourse for extra money).



(however a college board representative is always available , email them /or call them they will be able to provide best answer

in case you need collegeboard's general enquiry-form is avilable at

as for the low scores , they say that they accept highest scores



however Ben would be the right person to tell that



hope it helps

So when's the new MyMIT coming?

Posted by: Arash on September 6, 2006

Michael-



I had the same problem when I applied last year (unfortunately I was not offered admission). I found that they use that mostly to make sure you're not slacking and, if necessary, withdraw acceptance. Thus, wait until your first semester is finished. I'd keep checking here though, just in case I'm mistaken.

I tried visiting you (again) earlier today. You were not there. I cried.



Okay, so I'm lying a little. I thought about crying (making fun of doing so, that is). Close enough, no?

Blog related question smile

Since Mollie won't blog anymore I wonder what will happen with her blog? Will ther be any former bloggers section in the new MyMIT since there are tons of useful information?

Dear Mr./Ms.
I wanna ask you about SAT test. The resgistration for SAT subject test is only in January 27th. I have registered for SAT reasoning test for December test,if i wanna apply for this term admission, is it okay that I take SAT subjects test in January? I really want to register to MIT, but i am so confused how to take SAT subject test, because the test is too late. Could you give a tolerance so we ( I and my friends) can take SAT 2 in January and we can apply for MIT admission term 2007?

Thank you for your attention
Sincerely

Salsabila
