    I should wait for one month more for decisions, Transfer

  4. Liz '14 says:

    Hey! EA admit here, so I’ve been anxiously waiting although vicariously. So MyMIT is down right now, but RA admits should go sign the guestbook. :D

  5. Eyas says:

    Welcome home, indeed!

  6. Melih says:

    @ amaz – No one really believes you got into all those colleges anyway. Besides, all colleges admit more students than are expected to enter, so you did not take anyone’s space. You will be better off somewhere else with that kind of attitude. All you did was waste your $75 application fee.

    Congratulations to the admitted students! You will love MIT and all it has to offer!

  10. Kristina '14 says:

    ’14 added to the name!!!!!!! :D :D :D :D :D

  18. David K. says:

    Wow I can’t believe I got in!!! I was deferred from EA and yesterday I got put on Caltech’s waitlist so I wasn’t really expecting the best today.

    Looking forward to seeing you all at CPW and congrats!

    (captcha is “newspapers cooked” lol)

  19. Brian says:

    Here’s one from Hong Kong… it’s truly touching…

  20. '13 says:

    @amazingness: decisions for harvard, yale, princeton are yet to be released by the end of march or early april. well, at least i know that harvard closed indefinitely its early admission so it’s no true that you got accepted to those colleges as well. after all, that kind of attitude is not fit for insitutions of this caliber.

    captcha: smedley gestures

  21. (also, what the hell? MIT, are you sure you sent me the right letter? :/)

  22. Ecstatic '14 says:

  44. Luíza says:


  45. Shosh '13 says:

    Congrats, prefrosh!

    Seriously, make sure you come to CPW or visit at another time. MIT is not always what you imagine (but it’s AWESOME either way). Coming would help dispel some illusions and get you as excited as you should be.

    Congrats, again!

  46. Martin '14 says:

    Greets from Mexico. Hope to see you all in August.

    PS: How good it feels to write ’14 next to your name!!!!

  51. Ecstatic '14 says:

    @Neil ’12
    erk, so I hear.– I would, except that I’m co-captain this year and can’t ditch my team D: But I’ll definitely still visit and stay over! :/

  52. Pato '14 says:

    Congratulations to everyone! you are all in for quite a journey

  62. Zach says:

    Thank you, thank you, thank you! I am in complete disbelief right now. This is an opportunity of a lifetime!

  63. Congratulations, everyone! Hope you can make it to CPW!

    @ Kerry

    If you got your finaid application in on (or near) the deadline your financial aid statement will be in your admit packet.

  64. Anonymous says:

    @Melih I am a Muslim Arab Israeli…Add me on Facebook and we can have a chat. I love you all..I love you all. Oh I so love you all, my future friends.

  65. This one’s for my bro: TO ALL OF YOU WHO’VE GOT INTO MIT, CONGRATS!!!!. If you think you people are smarter than the smartest, the most intelligent of the lot, then think again. Come to India and try to clear the IITJEE( Indian Institute of Technology Joint Entrance Exam), and get a decent rank (say within 500). Then talk. ha!! ha!!

    I did that.I came 8th. My bro didn’t get into MIT. But he’ll do what I did.

    Once again, congratulations to all those who got in!! . To those who didn’t, solve some IITJEE papers and show ’em whose boss!!!

  66. My FACEBOOK page is Yassin Nosayr. Add me! Melih

  67. Steven Jens says:

    I’m so happy! MIT is my first choice. I promise I won’t disappoint!
    I definitely will try to attend CPW

  68. Christiana says:

    I was accepted and have no idea what to do or say except share this little bit of information with the rest of the world. Congratulations future classmates! You made it! In fact, I and two other girls from my school made it too!

  69. SHETA'14 says:

    I got in! So excited! Hope to see you all at CPW!
    Anyone from San Diego?

  70. Let me congratulate you all, ESPECIALLY the international studets!

    My contact with people associated with this place gave clear idea that people from MIT are without exeption, exeptional.


  71. Rutu '12 says:

    Congratulations everyone!!! ^__^

    Can’t wait to see you all at CPW (or, if you can’t make it, then next fall?)!

    PS: You guys should probably stop posting on here and go out and celebrate, but w/e. This is a form of celebrating anyways ^__^ Congrats again!

  72. Saptarshi says:

    The institute should add some more seats, that way they can take in more qualified people. Sure, the ones who have got in are smart but then so many equally qualified applicants have been denied. Not that they dont deserve it.

    ^Someone from IIT: There’s no need to brag. The admissions committee have chosen the ones who suit their mission best. I have a prospective 394AIR but still got rejected. Besides the admit rate for intls is ridiculuosly low.
    Congratulations to the Class of 2014! Play with Science!

  73. Alisha says:

    can you believe it, we’re the best of the best!
    holy cow.
    holy cow. wow. MIT.

    now, while we celebrate, let’s keep in mind that we do have a huge responsibility. Being the best of the best means we have the skill+power to help others, as well as the obligation. Let’s use our knowledge to save the world. No task is too great.
    Congratulations smile

  74. @Someone from IIT:

    MIT >> IIT

    We all know that! The IITJEE is not enough basis to say that your school is tougher or better than MIT.

    Of course, MIT is not just looking objectively with numbers, it’s looking for students who has not passion to be the change in the world (not simply an A+ student). You know what I mean? Think before you speak.

    To everybody who made it, congrats! To those who did not get in, remember you are not alone. Ten thousands are too. Being part of the admissions process of MIT is an honor itself. Only few people try that. Remember, there are more applicants at the other school down the road coz they are afraid of being rejected by MIT.

    Congrats ’14s!

  75. Hrant says:

    Congrats to everyone!!! I am soooooo Happpyyy!! I am waiting to meet you all next september at MIT!! I love you MIT!! You are the BEST!!

  76. Oops! I meant *who has the passion to be…* from my previous post.

  77. totally, utterly shocked. i never thought i would even have a shot at a place like MIT.


  78. Michael '14 says:

    I am so excited for the opportunity for an amazing education and experience at MIT!

    On top of this, I am so looking forward to the Intel ISEF again this May!

    Atlanta I am so excited for the opportunity for an amazing education and experience at MIT!

    On top of this, I am so looking forward to the Intel ISEF again this May!

  82. To the CLASS OF 2014: CONGRATULATIONS!!! I can’t wait to meet you at CPW! It was the best weekend of my high school life, so you should really come!!!

    Hiya! Miss you. Thanks for gently and politely taking that rude IIT person down. This is a thread for celebration, not bringing the admits down. I wish MIT had let you in, but I’m sure you’re loving Caltech. They’re lucky to have you!


  83. Juan says:

  90. ryanks2010 says:

    Well this is one way to wake up

  91. I was SO PREPARED for a rejection letter. I even opened up a new tub of ice cream so that I could drown my sorrows in it.

    …A sought after dream comes to life. MIT, thank you.

    Um, on another note, did I really get the right letter? Is there a way I can check (other than the online thing)?

    I don’t believe it! I don’t think I’ll believe it until I get on campus! ACTUALLY I don’t think I’ll believe it even then!!!!! OH MY GOD(S)!!!!!!!!!1 what the heck.

  92. Nathan says:

    I am thrilled that CPW overlaps with my April Break!

  93. Chelsea '14 says:

    Wow. Deferred, then accepted. Thank you MIT!

    @ Annie- I’m a swimmer!

  94. Mel '14 says:

    Anonymous ’14, I totally agree!! I am still in shock, I almost didn’t apply to MIT because I didn’t think I had a real chance!!! So glad I did now!!!

    I feel like a million bucks.

  95. A Freshman says:

    I earnestly hope that the next time I post on this forum, I am going to be a part of the MIT class of ’18.
    Congratulations and love to my friend, who was accepted today. smile
    I just got back from the Splash program, and I genuinely hope that I can one day join the ranks of the MIT class.
