Applications: 16,632 (6.2% increase over last year)
Admitted students: 1,611
2010 admit rate: 9.7%
Waitlisted students: 722
Represented: 50 states and 59 countries
The record number of applications means that the admissions committee has worked harder than ever to choose the Class of 2014. We have put our heart and soul, and our best judgment, into every decision, and most decisions are extremely difficult. Most students who applied to MIT this year were excellent matches for MIT, and most were extremely qualified. Our task is to choose from these many, many excellent applicants to bring together a class.
I know I speak for all of the admissions officers when I say that this has been a very difficult admissions process because of the large numbers of very, very qualified applicants. It made reading the applications a joy, but it made turning away students that much harder. Thank you for applying!
We’ll have more to say about the process for the admitted students, waitlisted students, and the not admitted students in the days and weeks to come. In the meantime, we’ll provide open threads today for all three groups.
