  20. Fausto says:

    Wow. No way. I am freaking out.

  21. OMG!!!!
    I can’t even type right, my hands are shaking, my eyes are blurry, I’m a mess!!!!
    I had never commented on any blog posts before because I didn’t feel like I was in my right to do so. But now…..OMG. I can’t believe this. For those of you that are as ecstatic as I am, guess what? We made it!!!
    There’s no better feeling. True, this wouldn’t have been the end of the world had I not gotten in, but this is now definitely the start of a whole new world for us all. I can’t wait to share the next FOUR YEARS of my life with such a great group of people at MIT. I hope you all take care and party hard (as I will be doing tonight in celebration)!!!!
    And no, I still can’t believe this.
    By the way, what are you guys waiting for to start signing your name with…’12…OH yeah Baby!!!!

  52. Anonymous says:

    Accepted. That’s a huge relief.
    Congratulations to everyone else who received the good news this morning.

  53. I keep rereading the acceptance; I just can’t believe it!

  54. MIT anon says:

    A bit of advice about the tube: you might have to hunt for it. It didn’t fit in our mailbox, so the delivery person left it on our porch, to the side of the door. It was placed so that it was hidden behind the door when the door opened. We didn’t notice it for several days.

    Every year MIT holds a contest for the design of the poster that goes out in the tube. This year’s poster was designed by Emma T. ’11, who lives on Conner Four (Burton-Conner). Enjoy! Congratulations!

  55. YAY!!!!! As I said before, adcoms. Thank you for doing a very difficult job.. Even though I am now more apt to appreciate your work, I would be thankful either way.

    anyway, I look forward to meeting all of you at CPW!!

    and while I don’t know if you’d read this, deffered people .. I’m sure alot of you will still get in and if not, you will still have great options. I know that is easy for me to say.. but it doesn’t stop it from being true.

    And to self-indulge for a moment, ^_^ ^_^ ^_^ ^_^ ^_^ ^_^ ^_^ ^_^ ^_^ ^_^ ^_^ ^_^ ^_^ ^_^ ^_^ ^_^ ^_^

  58. Kelsey says:

    I live at a boarding school and everyone here knew I got in within five minutes of me telling one person. Things here are going to be fun today.

  59. Anonymous says:

    What’s the name of the facebook group? I can’t find it. I’ve never been on facebook before (*gasp*), so it might just be my ineptitude.

  60. Zach says:

    Congrads to everyone. We did it…we got into the MOST SELECTIVE SCHOOL IN THE WORLD!!!!! It is going to be us that changes the world….All the hard work paid off….I can’t wait to see you all next year!!!!!!!!

  61. Angelica says:

    This is so awesome!! I want to thank everyone in my life who’s helped me gotten this far including God, my family, friends, peers, teachers,counselors, etc. I love them all and could not be more excited to finally become part of MIT- my dream school! =)

  62. I was the first one to post admittance, and haven’t quite calmed down yet.

    Here in California, we have the “cold” temperature of about 60 F, without a cloud in the sky, but I will still be sitting down to a bowl of New England Clam Chowder with my family to celebrate!

    Next year I’m guessing that winters won’t be quite so balmy for me… but I’ll love it anyway!

    Have a great day, everyone!

  63. Eli says:

    I was so worried I wouldn’t get in, I was expecting to be deferred and have to wait another 3 months to get my decision, but thank you MIT! Now I just feel bad for everyone who was rejected. :(

  64. Steven says:


    Let’s just leave it at that.

    Congrats to everyone.

    So I’m from Oklahoma, and we just had this awful ice storm (we’ve actually been declared in a state of emergency) and like half the city is out of power, and my internet has been freaky because of it, and I was paranoid I wasn’t going to be able to find out…but I did so its okay now, even though I woke up about five this morning out of nerves….yes this was all one sentence

    See ya’ll soon and contrats to everyone!

  70. Samantha says:
