I applied to MIT my junior year (with the intent that regardless of decision I would graduate that year). I was rejected. However, I did not end up graduating (was enjoying my internship too much so I decided to stay for another year - also wanted to experience some opportunities exclusive to seniors). Since I applied last year, my resume (experience, etc) has seen significant boosts in both magnitude and direction. I know MIT has stated that admission decisions do not change from a year to year basis in Holding out for a piece of Pi | MIT Admissions
, unless a significant change occurs in the application. So I guess I have a couple of questions:
1) If there is significant change in the application, is a reapplying student at a disadvantage?
2) Has there EVER been a student who reapplied and got in? (I would assume so - or at least hope so)
3) Does the admissions committee look at the applicant's old application, as well as, the new application in determining admission? (essays, scores, recs, etc)
Thanks for your time and effort in helping me
