How does MIT select students for admission?

The selection process at MIT is holistic and student centered: each application is evaluated within its unique context. No school, state, or regional quotas are applied; neither is preference given to those with alumni relations. Selection is based on outstanding academic achievement as well as a strong match between the applicant and the Institute.
