    You should really be careful in how you present yourself. MIT not only looks for smart people, but they really look for nice people. Don't just sell your brains, but also show that you've got personality and quirkiness.

    The race or competition is getting accepted to the school, after you get accepted - no matter what financial difficulties you have, the school will find a way for you to pay for school. The race is over once you get accepted! MIT looks for well-rounded students; students that experience a variety of activities and roles but also display a passion for something they love.

    If you are enthusiastic about learning and want to make a difference in the world or discover something new, MIT is a great place to go. In high school I would recommend joining groups that you are sincerely interested in, and if there is no group for your interested start one of your own. Academics are important, so work hard in your classes, but more important is your drive to excel and learn. If you really want to be at MIT, do what you love to do as best as you can.
