    If you dream of MIT then apply early action! It is not binding, but it shows commitment to MIT on your part. Additionally, if you don't get in early, don't be discouraged. Most recruited athletes are accepted early and spots are limited- that's just how it is. Are you unsure if MIT is for you? Many doubt that MIT can provide a normal college life for students. Please don't believe such speculative talk and take a visit for yourself. You will be surprised how normal and friendly the people are. read full review

MIT does not focus solely on SAT/ACT scores; being involved in extra-curricular activities and volunteering in your community also play a large part in the application process. Also, remember to take your SAT Subject Tests early in Math and Science in order to apply to MIT. SAT Subject Tests are required to apply to MIT. read full review
