More info for Admitted Students by Kris Guay

just a few more things to do

Congratulations to all of the admitted students!

I hope you are still celebrating, but I also want to remind you of a few things to do now as you make your final decision over the coming weeks.

Tune in to the Campus Preview Weekend (CPW) Webcast:   Sunday, March 24 at 2pm EST, admissions counselor Katie Kelley and a current undergraduate student will be on hand for an hour to answer all your CPW questions and give you a preview of all the fun that we’re planning this April. Check your email later this week for the details from us about how to tune in. 

Financial Aid Tracking & Award Letter: Your award letter will be posted in MyMIT on March 18. If you don’t have one yet, you can find out what documents are still required. There is also a link to the contact information for your financial aid counselor. See this guest blog post for more information.

Some other things to look out for in your MY MIT Portal:

  • Campus Preview Weekend Registration: Please register for CPW by Thursday, March 28. And don't forget to complete the Medical Release Form!
  • CPW Fly In: If you're flying in, book your plane tickets early. If your parents are joining you, have them book their hotel early too (today or tomorrow even). We highly recommend hotels that are within walking distance of MIT. Driving and parking in Boston can be super frustrating.
  • Local Admitted Student Gatherings: Over the next few weeks, MIT alumni across the globe will be hosting gatherings for the Class of 2017. Check the blogs this week for a new post dedicated to these gatherings.
  • The MIT Reply Form: As soon as you've made up your mind for sure about whether or not to attend MIT, let us know your decision through the online reply form by May 1. You have three choices: tell us you're enrolling this fall ☺, or that you're declining our offer of admission (it's okay, we know you're making the best choice for yourself), you can also request a deferral/gap year(s) before enrolling at MIT.
  • Overnight Program Registration: If you can't make it for CPW, you can still come visit through our Overnight Program. Please register at least two weeks in advance.
