April 2021: Although our campus is closed to visitors, you don’t have to travel to 🌈 Cambridge to get a feel for MIT. Sign up today for an 🔮 online session or student-led tour.

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.
