Open Thread: Waitlisted by Decisions

A lot of students applied to MIT this year, and unfortunately, we just couldn’t accept them all. We have placed a small number of students on the waitlist. If you would like to be considered for the waitlist, or you want to learn more about it, you can read more here.

Waiting has a reputation for being stagnant or tense or squandered time, but it can also be full of unexpected growth. We adapt and continue onward.

Some of you may feel happy to be waitlisted. Some of you may feel sad. Some of you may have complicated feelings; that’s okay too, and this is an open forum to talk it out. For right now, we just ask that you give it time and have a little patience.
