EA Tracking update by Matt McGann '00
All EA application mail has been processed; check your MyMIT Tracking.
The Records Office has processed all application components received for EA applicants. This is a good time for you to check your application tracking on MyMIT. It will show what materials we have processed for you. We should have the following: Application Part 1, Application Part 2, Secondary School Report and Transcript, Evaluation A, Evaluation B, Testing Requirements, and, if applicable, Interview Report.
What happens if the tracking system is missing something?
First, do not worry. We do not assign blame on why we don’t have it, we just know that we have not processed it. We will not look at your application unfavorably because it is missing an application component at this time. We will wait a while longer before having it evaluated to give you time to send along another copy. There are still more weeks of reading to be done, so as long as you get us the copies in a timely manner, there will be no impact.
The best way to get us a missing piece is by fax. Our Records Office fax number is (617) 258-8304. Be sure that all documents include your name and date of birth on each page. At this time, only EA applicants missing documents should use the fax machine; RA applicants should use the mail, and EA applicants should not fax resumes or other non-required materials.
If we are missing an evaluation, the teacher may fax a copy to us. If they need another copy of the evaluation form, you can get a PDF from the tracking system.
If we are missing a transcript, please fax it to us, but be sure to also mail us another official copy.
If you had an interview more than two weeks ago and we haven’t yet processed it, you should fill out the Conducted Interview form on the MyMIT Application Tracking Detail page. We will follow up with your Educational Counselor.
I know that the MId-Year Grade Report box is sitting there, unchecked. Don’t worry about this unless you are deferred from EA to RA.
If we have not processed standardized test scores that that you had the testing agency send us, then you may fax us a copy of an official score report. We will follow up with the testing agency. If we are missing your TOEFL scores, make sure the name on your application is exactly the same as it is on your TOEFL registration. If it is not, please send us an email with your TOEFL registration name.
Bottom line: do not stress if we are missing pieces. It happens every year for reasons usually beyond your control. No worries.
