Open Thread: Waitlisted by Decisions

This year well over 18,000 students applied to MIT, the most in our history. 

Because of the incredible size and strength of the applicant pool we were unable to offer admission to many, many incredible students whom we would love to have on campus. However, we did place some students on our waitlist.

We will have more information for waitlisted students in the coming weeks and months – about how our process works, what you need to do if you are still interested in MIT, and so forth. In the meantime, you may talk amongst yourselves below. As always, please keep your comments civil and friendly in our community.
