I guess the folks who staff the phones in MIT Admissions received lots of calls today, with many references to my blog. Below are the FAQs.
Q. If selection is over, can I have my decision?
A. The selection committee is over, but there are still many more steps until decisions are finalized. At this point, no decisions are final. When decisions are finalized, we will mail them, sometime in mid-March. Decisions will not be available over the phone or the web.
Q. If selection is over, does this mean I don’t have to send in the midyear report?
A. No, you must send in the midyear report.
Q. Can I still send in extra materials?
A. While it is too late for extra materials to be reviewed in selection committee, any significant updates will be reviewed by an admissions officer.
I’m trying to post an entry soon answering your other recent questions. It’s been busy lately…
