Complicated issue for MIT application! Please Help!
Please if anybody knows help me about this topic. molliebatmit, you have always helped me by your comments and you almost know everything so if you help again, I will be abundantly pleased. On MIT Admissions Page, it is said that "be sure that your name exactly matches on tests etc". However, I have two names and they are different on various data. For instance, (I've made up the names) I'm seen as Jack Sam on high school transcript and Jack S. on the SAT and Sam J. on the TOEFL. I have registered MyMIT with the name Jack Sam ( which legally writes on my US Passport ) and chose Sam as preferred first name. Would this dual name situation cause trouble? Does MIT's system check data meticulously, letter by letter or would they have no problem identifying data that belongs to me? Because everything except the names will match identically like my surname, birthdate and social security number. THANKS IN ADVANCE!
