Open Thread for Admitted Students by Decisions

This was the most competitive admissions cycle in the history of the Institute, and you are one of the very few applicants to whom we offered admission. Congratulations and welcome to the Class of 2015!

Feel free to introduce yourselves in the comments below to your future friends. And remember to check out your MyMIT account starting tomorrow morning for Campus Preview Weekend (CPW) information & registration and links to join your early admitted classmates in our online community.

  37. Vivek says:

    Congrats everyone. Even though I didn’t get admitted, I do have the right to congratulate the people who did right? You’ve got what many of us couldn’t have. Make the most of it.

    Vivek, signing off for the (second) last time (got to post in the waitlisted thread too). smile

  40. M.John says:

    YeSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSS I got In… I did it. God is real great. just an hour ago I was stressing on the interim blog, narrating my stress and exhibiting a lack of non worry lol. Any how, THat’s it, the end of the Journey, the end of the tunnel we travelled with God’s help. YESSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSss again.

  41. I’m really happy!
    I had already gotten into my head that, since I’m an international applicant, that my chances were really slim, and that I’d probably not get in …
    Then I open my decisions page and I just look at some words, and read “congratulations” and so and so, and I just get psyched! (I’m still psyched :D I have to sleep, but I don’t know how :D), I didn’t even get the chance to read it all the first time.
    Congratulations to all who got in, I look forward to meeting you all!

  42. Anonymous says:

    I was one of the guys who didnt make it in, I was born with a really good skill into ralating things and I have applied it into maths. You all have to take the best out of this school because one of you EARNED my spot in a straight way. You all are going to remember this post in a while…

    ps. you all are having a “better opportunity” to learn but that doesn’t mean you gusy can be overpassed so watch yo backs

  43. Harsh says:

    Congrats to everyone even though I didnt get admitted it was a wonderful experience and these last few days of my wait has really thought me a life time experience congrats to the class of 2015…

  44. Kyubizt says:

    Gratz to everyone who got in. They rejected me…. =(

    Oh well! Probably not a place that would fit with me anyway.

  45. Anonymous says:

    Didn’t make it :D
    frankly, I’m just glad its all over…

    To all those who made it…Rock N Roll!!!!Loads of love, peace and regards from Kathmandu :D

  46. Shalin says:

    Congratulations to everyone who got accepted!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

  47. Megan P says:

    Congrats everyone!! Definitely a day to remember!

  48. Anonymous says:

    Just wanted to say, to all you admits out there, remember the feeling you had when you first saw you were accepted. MIT is a great place, but it’s not all glamour; some day at four in the morning when you’re just sick of it, you’ll want to look back on this feeling and remember why it’s all worth it to you. You can grow immensely at MIT, but not just by getting straight A’s; don’t lose sight of your dreams

  49. Rebecca Hu says:

    MIT THANK YOU!!!!!! I am SO EXCITED to meet everyone during CPW!!!!! Congrats to everybody!!

  50. Gaurav says:

    Congo to all those who got in! You guys really deserve this one! Though I didn’t get in, knowing MIT has really became a very indispensible part of my life…. It has shown me innumerable possibilities, innumerable potential!

    I thank MIT to consider my application and for making me feel so SPECIAL!!!!! ☺☺☺

  51. Catherine says:

    hey guys!
    Unfortunately, I didn’t get in, but I just wanted to congratulate everyone that did. You all deserve it. Best of luck smile

  52. Sakshi says:

    Just wanted to congratulate all those who got in. I didn’t but it id definitely wonderful to see happy around me.


  54. Ariel S says:

    11:26, restate my assumptions:

    1. Mathematics is the language of nature.
    2. Everything around us can be represented and understood through numbers.
    3. I was admitted to the MIT!! Yeaaaah!!!

    Just out of curiosity, does anyone know when Financial Aid decisions will be released? I am kinda counting on that too if I want to go to the MIT.

  55. Jaya says:

    @Jacobi: Yoopers represent!!

  56. Carmela says:

    woohoohooooooooo!!!!!!!! I went hysterical when I read my letter!!

    MIT 2015 FTW.

  57. anon:) says:

    not an MIT student in any way shape or form, but congratulations to all admitted! smile

  58. Not accepted says:

    Congratulations guys. I’m sure most of you deserve the admission more than I did. Congratulations guys. I’m sure most of you deserve the admission more than I did. <3

  59. Nandhini '15 says:

    CONGRATS ’15s!! I am so honored to be accepted and I hope to meet all of you at CPW. To those who were not accepted: you guys are still amazing, amazing people. God bless all of us and our futures.

  60. Troy says:

    Congratulations to our son on his acceptance to MIT class of 2015. Now I have to go and figure out how to pay for this… Way to go Keanu, we have always been proud but this tops the cake.

  61. Alya '15 says:

    This is the best day of my whole life!! MIT wait for me :D

    Thanks for all of you admission officers. I am sure reviewing all the applications from all of the awesome applicants was a hard job.

    I can’t wait to see you all during CPW!!

    Thank you so much MIT : )

  62. Rutu '12 says:

    Congrats guys!! See you all here for CPW (and hopefully for the next years!!) ^__^

    Now stop refreshing this thread and go celebrate ^__^

  63. Phoebe says:


    I had totally convinced myself I wasn’t going to be accepted…and then to see THAT. I was bawling my eyes out for about five minutes, my mom started freaking out because I hadn’t told her we were getting decisions today.

  64. Brandon says:

    Congrats everyone! Does anyone know where the CPW portlet is?

  65. Kharis X says:

    Still in shock that I got in. I am the first person in a very long time in my school to get into MIT. SO HAPPY!!!!!

  66. Congratulations! Everyone should check out the dorms and UROP programs at MIT. These are two of the really cool aspects of the Institute. Also many dorms have machine shops in their basement. Some even have electrical engineering labs. Come to MIT!

  67. oasis '11 says:

    Welcome to the first day of your new life. smile

    Congratulations ’15s!

    (back “in the day” in 2007…one had a 12% chance of getting into MIT =p)

  68. Rachael says:

    lol this is not real….Happiest Pi day ever lol this is not real….Happiest Pi day ever <3 <3 <3 Congrats everyone, can’t wait to meet you all real soon!!!

  69. I’m so HAPPY I got into MIT as a chemical engineer! I’m so glad that women are finally getting the respect in the man-dominated math and science fields that they deserve. I went to this coed high school, and I HATED it. The guys were such slobs and they kept leering at me! I hate it when guys do that. Of course, at MIT, I KNOW that this isn’t going to happen to me! Love and sweets galore!

  70. Congratulations to everyone! I can’t believe I got in! But I read somewhere about MITLeaks saying that maybe some dicisions are wrong and they maybe let us know about the correct decision on a later date.. Could that be possible?

  71. Chae says:

    Congratulations everyone!!
    I still can’t believe that I was accepted..
    I didn’t expect it at all!
    It’s such a great feeling when someone you respect so much tells you that you’re going to be someone when you’re so uncertain of your own future…
    I love you MIT!!
    See you guys at CPW smile

  72. '14er says:

    This is your decision. Congratulations, everyone. And welcome smile

  73. Tina says:

    Thank you God! YEAHHHHHH! MIT FTW!

  75. GabrielGGx says:

    I did not get it :( But this does not mean you guys don’t deserve a recognition! Congratulations I wish you a lifetime of success and happiness at MIT!

  76. Fish '15 says:

    A slice of pie.
    A swell concert performance.
    A stupendous result from years of reckless abandon for learning.
    A smile on my face that looks suspiciously, deliciously memey.

  77. Congrats class of ’15!!!! Still in shock and very excited

  78. Anthony '15 says:

    Congratulations everyone who got accepted! See you at CPW / in the fall! Can’t wait!

  87. mouse says:

    @current MIT students (yes, that includes YOU too, dear proud ’15-rs): Hey, NOT FAIR!!. You’re happily congratulating the admitted, but none, not even one of you has posted your sincere heartfelt condolences on the not admitted thread!

    (i guess i don’t need to explicitly state my admissions status, you people are smart enough!)

  88. Tachmajal says:
