I was wondering what type of shot I have to get into MIT with swimming, I have been corresponding with the coach but I've heard that coaches don't have a lot of influence when it comes to admissions here. I would say I'm a pretty good swimmer for high school and I also have other extra curricula activities as well.
Some of my times:
100 free: 47.99
50 free: 21.25 relay start
50 fly: 23.19 relay start
100 fly: 54.5
200 im: 2:02
Here's some academic information...
Class rank: 1 out of 574
SAT: 2280 (taken it once)
SAT IIs: chemistry 800, math 1 800
I know that the best chance anyone has to get into MIT very small, and I'm no super genius, so will swimming help me get in over the many other Asians who have high sat scores and play a strig instrument?
