  7. JR says:

    After 7 minutes of loading the page, I got in!!!

  8. Maya says:

    wow. i think i’m legitimately speechless.

  9. Contrats! My admission was rejected. I guess that’s more college apps to do. I still really want to go to MIT, applying again in four years for grad school I guess.

  10. Arshia Surti says:

    Yay! I still can’t believe that I got in! Congratulations to everyone else!

  11. Christine says:

    I’m happy for you guys… I really, really, really really really really really wanted to go to MIT though…:(

    I’m curious about one thing though…
    What were y’all’s SAT scores? I just want to know if mine were way low or not. Thank you!

  12. Banks says:

    Just got in. :D

    My satII’s weren’t that great, a 700 on math and 730 on physics. I think my regular test score was relatively high though, a 760 on math/reading and a 750 on writing.

  13. EmL says:

    In shock. But so excited smile

  14. Anthony '15 says:


    Sooo excited! :D

  15. Shri says:

    MIT is definitely my dream school.
    SAT: 2200, 800 math, 680 cr, 720 w
    SAT II: 800 math2, 760 phys
    ACT: 34, 35 math, 34 eng, 34 sci, 31 w
    Main Special Ingredient: I’m a junior, and I made USAJMO.

  16. Tim says:

    Congrats to all those who made it! I got deferred, but there is still is a chance for me. I’m not giving up hope yet! raspberry

  17. Katie says:

    Hey everyone!! I’m so excited to meet all of you at CPW! I’m still in shock smile

  18. I GOT INTO MIT!!!!!!

    I feel like kicking myself for using all those exclamations. BUT STILL! YESSSSS!

    I think it was my essays more than awards or anything like that. The way I saw it, the awards didn’t seem to matter too much, but I really put my heart into those essays.

    CONGRATULATIONS CLASS OF 2015! Hope to see you at CPW. :D

  19. Maria says:

    God always listens to sincere prayers:)
    See you guys all in MIT!

  20. Piper '12 says:

    Congratulations to the new 2015ers. I can’t wait to meet y’all during CPW and show you how awesome this place can be! :D

  21. Schroeder says:

    I WAS ACCEPTED?!?! Holy God! This is…I can’t believe it. My thoughts are jumbled…I can’t breathe. What?

    I’ve always wanted… This is…

    I could burst into poetry!

    I am happier than sunshine
    that I was given a special tool.
    From a far fantasy of mine,
    it came: acceptance from my dream school!

  22. Nathan ('15) says:

    So I was trying to decide if I was hoping to be deferred to still have a shot or be rejected to just get it over with…and then I got admitted. I think I’m kind of in shock right now still. But I’ve gotta get off here and go let some people know or heads’ll roll ^_- congratulations to everybody else that got in! I look forward to meeting you guys in person sometime! To anybody who didn’t and reads this: don’t lose hope. MIT is an amazing school, but it’s not the only great school out there. To be honest, my safety school admits ~96% of applicants I think (it’s based on GPA/test scores only), so it’s clearly not the same level as many of the colleges I’m sure you’re all considering if you can’t get MIT, and yet I still would have been happy to pursue my education there. Try to find a school that provides the right environment for you but remember that YOU are what makes or breaks your education. And if you even applied to MIT, I bet you’re pretty amazing =) Merry Christmas all!

  23. Pauline says:

    ^_^ there are no words. this is AWESOME.

  24. Rachel says:

    Congratulations Lourdes!!!

    And of course congratulations to everyone that got in! You are such an amazing group of people. Wish I could be a part of the MIT class of 2015…maybe I’ll try for grad school. smile

  25. Udaeka says:

    congrats everyone!

    I was just wondering if someone would like to share the general topics of what they wrote for essays .and how long they were? How much time did you spend and how important do you personally feel they are?

  26. Tessa says:

    Schroeder? I’m kind of loving you for the poetry right now.

    I would write a sonnet but I’m way too hyped up.

  27. Matt ('15) says:

    Wow I am extremely excited right now.
    I can’t wait to meet everyone at CPW!

    Lol, this is so interesting. I am a senior and I can definitely say I lOVE MIT SFM! as a freshman I did not like it very much since I struggle alot coming from a very poor school, it was not until my junior year when things finally paid of for me!

    At any rate SAT has nothing to do with coming to MIT
    for everyones info I got a
    600 on math
    500 on reading
    500 on writing
    620 Math II
    and thats pretty much it.
    At any rate congratulations guys! and I cant believe I am graduating… times flies so fast! when you read this post you one day will be a senior too so enjoy your time!

  52. Mari Prescod says:

    I’m SO incredibly happy right now! I had to read the letter twice before I believed it. I honestly thought I was going to be deferred at best. This is amazing.

    Congrats to everyone that made it! I can’t wait to meet you all at CPW.

    Mari smile

  53. Piper '12 says:

  63. Ashley says:

    Congratulations, everybody! I’m still in shock nearly sixteen hours later…I was expecting to be rejected and hoping to be deferred, so to find out I had been admitted was an awesome surprise. I’m from Virginia, where school board officials cancel school before snow hits the ground. (Seriously. School was canceled for Thursday at 6:30 on Wednesday night, and it didn’t start snowing until 10:00 AM on Thursday morning.) But I’m not complaining–an early start to winter break and an MIT acceptance make for an awesome Christmas present smile Congrats again, everyone!!

  64. KevinG says:

    It wouldn’t let me load the page at first, but when it finally did, I broke down in tears (a bit exaggerated). I was at work, and all the little kids at the tutoring center I work at looked at me like I was crazy. My co-workers were also excited. I’m still in shock. I look forward to meeting everyone. WOO

  65. Xavier says:

    happppppppppppppppppppppppppppppppy :DDDDDDDDDDDDDDDDD

  66. Karl says:

    sweet! I’m from Orange County smile

  68. Flynn says:

    WHOO! MIT ’15! Hawaii represent, haha!

  69. Anthony '15 says:

    <– Bay Area, California!

    Definitely hasn’t fully sunk in yet. Seems like every few minutes I think of some new implication of this and it happens all over again: “I’m really going to MIT!”


  70. Anthony '15 says:

    Hm, it cut off the first part of my comment. Bay Area, California here!

  71. Royal '15 says:

    This was the best Christmas/ Birthday Present ever! I’m from LA County in SoCal. Just for kicks, since I’m sure nobody knows where this is, I spend most of my life in Walnut and Pomona.


  72. Kathy says:

    I’m still nervous about my acceptance being a dream, or a joke… hopefully posting this comment will help wedge it into reality (:

    I live in a little Michigan town & I’m looking forward to meeting all of you! We’re so lucky!

  73. Udaeka says:

    Wow, good luck to ALL of you and go ahead and change the world!!!!!!!!!

  74. Yukino says:

    @Tessa: dooode ™ RSI reunion ftw!!! :D

  75. Austin says:

    Are there any other Siemens competition people who got in? I first went to MIT to present for the Siemens competition, and realized it would be a good fit for me. Wondering if anyone else had similar experiences.

  76. Victor says:

    I am so excited! Congrats to everyone else who got accepted!

    San Diego, CA!

  77. Lyndsy says:

  80. Kenneth says:

  81. Maria says:

    CONGRATULATIONS EVERYONE! It was 3 in the morning when the decisions came out where I live, but so worth it!

    A celebratory haiku:
    Wait what just happened

    Haha, can’t wait to meet all of you. smile

  82. MrSpaceman says:

    I can’t believe it! And neither did my brother… (he cried)
    Merry christmas and happy new year to everyone!! This is the best present I could’ve asked for :D

  83. Yukino says:

    I refuse to believe this until I am at freshman orientation.

    I’m in Japan, and I was in my AP Chem class when I found out. My Friday just got that much better. I can’t make it to CPW (because of timing, cost of travel, etc) but I look forward to meeting you all next fall!

  84. Who Dat says:

    Wow. I still can’t believe this is real. Spent all night tossing and turning because I was so excited XD Hopefully my calc AP exam grade won’t show that…

    representing the Big Easy

    THANKS MIT! smile

  85. MB '15 says:

    I’m still amazed…this all feels like a dream. I’m so happy I got in!!!! Wow. Hopefully I’ll see you all at CPW and Freshman Orientation! Congratulations to everyone else who got in and good luck to all those deferred/rejected smile

  86. Anna says:

    For the past eleven months, ever since I visited last January, I have been doodling bubbled “MIT” letters in the corner of many a notebook page. I’m so glad it all came to fruition, and congratulations to everyone else!
    Sunil, I completely understand your need for information…but SAT scores here are going to run the gambit, and everyone had different kinds of successful applications. You’re going to do great, just show yourself in your essays and try to sketch out all the important things you’ve been doing. Best of luck!
    I’ll be seeing everyone on April 7th!

  87. ThePlaz '13 says:

    Congrats to the class of 2015! Hope to see you all at CPW!

  88. Parth says:

  89. Ryan '15 says:

    Hey Congrats to everyone who got admitted but I think we all should remember that as we got a eternal chance of doing something that has a GLOBAL IMPACT we should not waste it an we should dedicate our self for the betterment of mankind in anyway !!
