I've ducked out of committee for a moment to let you know that, as the title says, we will be releasing Early Action decisions online next Saturday, 12/14, at 12:14 PM ET.
To check your decision on the 14th, visit decisions.mit.edu and log in with your MyMIT username and password.
In order to verify that you will receive a decision on the 14th, you should visit decisions.mit.edu and log in with your MyMIT username and password. I recommend you do this now. Strange things happen to people who don't verify they will receive their decision!
If you've forgotten your MyMIT password, you may use our automated system to reset it. Simply visit MyMIT and click on the lost password link. There is a similar link for forgotten usernames. If you're having trouble using our automated username/password recovery process, please email mymitpassword [at] mit [dot] edu with your full name and mailing address. But please, be nice to our office, and don't email that link unless you've tried everything else!
Admissions decisions will be available exclusively online. Decisions will not be released via email, snail mail, carrier pigeon, carrier dragon, or intergalactic radio broadcast. However, following the release of admissions decisions, we will be mailing admitted students additional, cylindrical information.
Remember: as soon as you log in, you will receive your decision, so make sure you are prepared for the fierce wind of knowledge.
