How can I explain my special circumstances?

We understand that everyone has a unique story and that we can’t possibly cover every “what if” in an FAQ section.

The MIT application allows plenty of room for you to tell us about any special circumstances regarding your school, community, or family, and any other information that you feel may be helpful to us in evaluating your application.

Every application is read in a holistic manner, within its proper context.
