Description

The MIT Office of Admissions enrolls a talented and diverse undergraduate student body composed of some of the world’s most intelligent and creative individuals interested in an education centered on science and technology.  While grades and scores are important, it’s also the match between applicant and the Institute that drives our selection process.  Our applicants are read holistically so that each student can be viewed within their own unique context.
