The Early Action round for the Massachusetts Institute of Technology’s Class of 2023 is in the books. Admissions decisions have been signed, sealed, and delivered. In all, 9,600 students applied under MIT’s non-binding Early Action policy. Of these students, 707 earned admission. It doesn’t require a mathematics degree from MIT to know this means the Early Action admission rate for MIT’s Class of 2023 stood at about 7.3%.

MIT’s Class of 2023 Admits Include Bakers and Birders

Admitted Early Action students to MIT’s Class of 2023 hail from 486 high schools around the world. As MIT writes on its admissions site, “We can’t wait to welcome them to campus to join the 4,602 outstanding undergraduates who already call MIT home. Though they all do different things — activism and athletics, baking and birding, cosplay and chess — 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 love the specifics MIT’s admissions office cites about some of its admits — particularly birding and cosplay. Of course students who earned admission to MIT are into cosplay. Of course!

And while 707 students earned admission, 6,182 applicants received notices of deferral to the Regular Decision round. An additional 2,483 applicants were denied admission outright. But at Ivy Coach, we had no denials. We had no deferrals either. In fact, every one of our students at Ivy Coach who applied Early Action to MIT earned admission. Congratulations to our MIT admits! We’re so proud of you.
