As is tradition, MIT released its Regular Decision notifications on Pi Day (March 14th). In all, between Early Action and Regular Decision, 21,312 students applied to MIT this year. Of these students, 1,410 earned admission. Admitted students represent all 50 states as well as 67 countries around the world. They hail from almost 1,000 high schools — near and far.
Morphology and Marathons, Innovation and Informatics
As Chris Peterson writes on the MIT admissions blog, “Though they all do different things — morphology and marathons, innovation and informatics, twirling and taekwondo — they are united by a shared standard of rigorous academics, high character, and a strong match with MIT’s mission to use science, technology, and the useful arts to make the world a better place. We can’t wait to welcome them to our campus to join the 4,602 outstanding undergraduates who already call MIT home.” We absolutely love it when elite universities offer specifics about admits — like MIT’s whole bit about morphology and marathons, innovation and informatics, twirling and taekwondo. As our readers may remember, MIT’s Early Decision admits to the Class of 2023 included bakers and birders.
MIT has placed a “small number” of students on the waitlist. If you happen to be placed on the waitlist and want to give yourself the best possible shot of admission off that list, do read more about our assistance with a Letter of Enthusiasm. Congratulations to all students who earned admission to the Massachusetts Institute of Technology this year!
