Mid-year Grade Reports And Other Common Questions by Ben Jones

Quick answers to a few of the common questions in my blog over the last few days.

Quick answers to a few of the common questions in my blog over the last few days…

————————————-

How will I know if MIT has received my mid-year grade report?

You really don’t need to worry about this. In a case where we need to see a mid-year report and it has not been received, we will personally contact your school to get it. In other words, if we feel that a mid-year report is needed to make a decision, no decision will be made until we have the report.

I should note that a mid-year grade report can’t save an otherwise problematic application. We generally use them to confirm a decision (i.e. to make sure you’re sustaining the work that led us to want to admit you in the first place). We’re not going to see an app with poor grades and think “let’s see if he/she got all A’s senior year” – that app would never have made it that far in committee.

————————————-

What if my school is on a trimester system?

Send us what you can – this is usually the first trimester grades.

————————————-

Is it too late to send in supplementary materials?

Other than mid-year grades, yes. You’re always welcome to send them but at this point the committee will not see them until after selection, when it will be too late for them to make a difference.

————————————-

What about standardized test scores?

We have received test scores from all tests conducted in January 2006 or before, and these will be seen by the committee.

————————————-

When will decisions be released?

I don’t know the exact date yet. Sometime in mid-March. It will likely be after Pi-Day, but hopefully only a few days thereafter.

————————————-

Will you be releasing decisions online?

It’s our hope to be able to do so, but we are still testing. We are hoping to make the official announcement on March 6.

    Finally I am first to reply smile Nothing constructive I am afraid other than Kudos for your unbelievable work and friendliness and love smile

    haha csaba, is it really that important for you??

    I was wondering if MIT requesting IDOC from collegeboard is a good sign for those who seek admittance to MIT.

  4. Siddharth says:

    haha chris, is it really that important for you to comment on??

    (quick, lets start a… CHAIN!!!!!!)

    juuust kidding :D yeah a lot of ppl like being first-poster. im no stranger to the feeling, but the euphoria kinda wears off after the first couple of thousand useless first-post responses :D

    bah. no to online decisions, yes to pi day. and yes, i have MAJOR influence on these kind of things :D

  5. C Minh says:

    Hey, Ben, do you now anything about the Toefl result, I took the exam on 14 Jan and till now there is no official score report yet. MIT is supposed to receive the score 1 or 2 weeks before I do. If it comes too late, will I be simply kicked out.

    I also sent some supplemental materials on 2/2 by fax, was that also too late to be considered.

    Thanks so much for your work.

    there’s a rumor that the decision mail day is the 17th

  7. Anonymous says:

    Thanks for this post. It surely answered my questions, and I’m sure it has answered many others’ as well.

  8. Ben, you and Matt seem to be experts in relieving tension, as you seem to have updates everytime I sign in! Thank you for your diligence I really appreciate it!

    Hmm…so for me the *critical* dates so far are:

    March 6th – The day that an announcement regarding online decisions will be made (PLEASE BE YES OR I’LL DIE!)

    Greater than or equal to March 14th – More likely after March 14th (from what I’ve gathered) decisions will be mailed/online

    …Ben PLEASE do NOT give in to pressure of any sort to release decisions on PI Day just because it is “Romantic” Okay it is cool but it shouldn’t affect admissions decisions AT ALL. I realize the admissions committee already has this in mind and doesn’t give in to this kind of pressure, but hey I’m just nervous smile

    And thank you once more for these wonderful updates!

    GOOD LUCK TO EVERYONE! Both admissions staff and students!

    Abdulaziz (Aziz) Albahar

  9. Phil says:

    wow, everytime I click this website (getting more frequenty now…), you always have an update. :]

    yay for online decisions and updates!

  10. Fadl says:

    I would just like to say that I totally agree with Abdulaziz (Aziz) Albahar and I think that you should feel no pressure towards mailing on pi-day. I want to thank you Ben and everyone else on the staff for everything you guys have done for us. smile We really appreciate it.

    PS: Do you and Matt read each others blogs??

  11. James says:

    It’s nice to know that the decisions won’t be mailed until after Pi-Day, strange as it is to say. I’m planning a Pi-Day party, and I really didn’t want to find out that I was rejected just before I had to host the party. That might have ruined my party. Of course, finding out that I was accepted just before the party would make the party seem insignificant.

  12. Csaba says:

    Minh,

    Try calling International Admissions! They are available about 80% of the time (be sure to check the time-zone smile ) and are extremely helpful 100% of the time smile worked for me smile

    chris: yea as this was my first ever first post! smile From now on, I will never comment on this smile (only other stuff)

    Pi day’s during my spring break this year, so our party has to be on March 8th. Whoops!

    Good luck to everyone who applied! *fingers crossed*

  15. M says:

    Hi Ben,

    Do you have any idea when the tracking system for finaid docs will be on MyMIT? I am an int’l applicant, I have sent my 2006-07 Int’l Stdt App for Finaid along with supporting docs in mid-Jan, but have no idea whether or not MIT has received it. Since mails from my country generally take 2+ weeks to reach MIT, I’m basically feeling as if I’m sitting on fire right now as March 1 approaches. Thanks for your answer. In the meantime, kudos for the efforts you and the rest of the adcom spent on selection of the class of 2010.

  16. gm says:

    Good luck to everyone who applied. Pi day seems like a great day for the admission decisions to arrive but any date will do… =] Thanks Ben as well as to the admissions team.

  26. Thanks for the post Ben. I am an international student and hence haven’t sent any mid year report but I sent many certificates on 30th Jan. Did they made it to the selection committee don’t know but as knowing now won’t make any different, I will just hope they did!! :p

    I got a question on the financial aid application.

    MyMIT says there is a _postmark deadline_ on March 1.

    But the Financial Aid Page tells, that all applications MIT _receives_ after March 1 will probably not be considered.

    On which information should I rely? I waited for my parents’ tax return which I knew to be finished these days. Now, my application is ready to be sent.

    Will MIT not consider my finaid-application if it arrives on March 1 + 3-5 days?

    I have been wondering about the postmark deadline, since MIT sends finaid-decisions along with the admission notification, but the entry on MyMIT was explicit.

    Thanks in advance.

    PS:

    What about sending a fax??

  83. Siddharth says:

    yeah, i went to the financial aid tracking website and it didnt accept my login… can somebody else try it with their login and see if it works for them? the FA tracker is https://autumn.mit.edu/fatrack/

  84. Siddharth says:

    anon: check out http://web.mit.edu/finaid/faq/finaidq.html#9

    i’ve copied the text for u below:

    When will I be notified about the financial aid decision?

    Both early-action and regular-action admitted students who apply by the March 1 deadline will be notified in mid-April of their financial aid decision. Applicants who do not meet the March 1 deadline will be notified of their eligibility to receive aid shortly after their application becomes complete. However, we reserve the right to stop reviewing late applications after May 1.

    so i guess u can turn it in a little late and it will be ok. not good, but at least ok. but im no expert, so…. ask the financial aid ppl at [email protected]

    good luck w/ all that. financial aid forms are NOT fun to fill out, but filling them out might mean money… what’ll really suck is to fill them all out and forget to submit them, or submit them past deadline :D

    I won’t be able to sleep peacefully until I know the admission decision!!!!

    & good luck to everyone else too (except siddharth raspberry I don’t need your luck anyway wink

    and thank you chris, as much as I like Tolkien & company, MIT-in-the-real-world beats Middle Earth any day.

    take a look at this: http://at.mansbjorkman.net/pl_namarie.jpg (and don’t ask me to translate it, please. only 72%, remember?)

    if the “men” don’t like it, any other girls out there think it’s kind of pretty?

    Nenuial…what is middle earth? am i really that far out of it??

  89. The below information is only up to my knowledge and please confirm the information.

    Hi anonymous first of all I think it is never late to send the financial aid application in march. In the application booklet I received it is clearly mentioned that if a applicant is able to send the financial AID application by march 1 MIT will indicate the position of their applications and in some cases they will let them know their financial aid with the admission discussion (If he/she is admitted). If you submitted your application after march 1 it will not be possible for them to send the situation of your financial aid. And also they said that the applications after “April” 1 may be denied.

    Then SIDDARTH I am also unable to track my financial aid application I just send an e-mail with my full name and MIT ID to the financial aid office and found that my application had reached there safely.
