Decisions are out for the MIT Class of 2021. College admissions enthusiasts know that decisions at the Massachusetts Institute of Technology come out annually at the same exact time on the same exact date (Pi Day). After all, MIT is a fairly renowned institution when it comes to mathematics so it’s their way of playing up their distinctiveness. For the MIT Class of 2021, roughly 20,000 students applied for admission and 1,438 were offered a spot in the incoming class. These students are said to hail from over 60 nations. And our students at Ivy Coach who earned admission to MIT this year hail from 4 of these nations! We can start our own United Nations of MIT. We kid.
As reported by “MIT News” in a release about the MIT Class of 2021, “‘MIT is fortunate to attract applications from so many of the world’s most promising students, all of whom seem destined to change the world. It is a very difficult choice to select so few of these many qualified applicants,’ says Matt McGann, director of admissions. ‘I am excited to see in this group of admitted students such an excellent match to MIT’s mission and culture.’ Again this year, a third have won national or international academic distinctions and many are athletes, artists, or makers. Admitted students come from 50 states, 62 countries, and from diverse backgrounds: a quarter identify as members of underrepresented minority groups, and 18 percent will be the first generation in their family to attend college.”
And as for students who were placed in waitlist limbo by the Massachusetts Institute of Technology, there are about 500 of you — according to “MIT News.” If you’re a student who has been waitlisted for the MIT Class of 2021, doing nothing is not the answer. Doing the wrong thing is not the answer either. If you’d like to give yourself the best possible shot of earning admission off the waitlist, fill out our free consult form and indicate MIT waitlist. We’ll then be in touch.
