So sorry for the delay in posting this – we wanted to be very confident in the decision release date before announcing it publicly.
We’re on schedule to release MIT admissions decisions online at 12:00PM EST on Saturday, December 15. (Decisions will also be sent via postal mail around this time, give or take a day or two.) If this date/time changes for any reason, I will announce it here, but I do not foresee that happening at this juncture.
Decisions will be available to those who meet all of the following criteria:
- You have applied for freshman admission (not transfer or graduate).
- You have applied Early Action and your intended entry year (as designated in your MyMIT account) is 2008.
What is the process for receiving my admissions decision online?
In order to check your decision online, you will need to have registered for a MyMIT account and you will need to know your username and password. When decisions are released, simply visit https://decisions.mit.edu and log in using the same username and password that you use to log into your MyMIT account. There are no interim screens, so you should be sure you wish to receive your decision online before logging in to decisions.mit.edu.
We will not be in the office on the weekend that decisions are released, so to prevent any delays, you should confirm your username and password well in advance by visiting https://decisions.mit.edu and following the instructions there.
What if I’ve forgotten my MyMIT password?
You may use our automated system to reset it. Simply visit my.mit.edu and click on the “lost password” link.
What if I don’t have a MyMIT account?
If you applied using our online application, you already have a MyMIT account.
If you applied using our paper application, however, you might not. If you do not have a MyMIT account and you wish to receive your decision online, you will need to register for one using your MIT ID, which was sent to you via postal mail soon after receiving your paper application. If you have misplaced your MIT ID, or if you never received it, you may call our office (617.253.3400) to request it.
If you register for a MyMIT account without your MIT ID, your username and password may not work on decisions.mit.edu.
Will there be any indication of my admissions decision in my MyMIT account?
Admitted students will see the addition of the Admitted Student Portlet in their my.mit.edu account sometime during the week of December 17. (Deferred and denied applicants will not see a change.)
Less than 6 days! Hang in there everyone. :-)
