Applying MIT as a transfer student
There is a statement at MIT website about transfer procedure;
"...we cannot accept applications from students who at the time of entry to MIT will have finished less than one year or more than two and a half years of college..."
I will begin my university two month later in my home country, but in my country, top universities (which gives English based education) gives English language education for one year. Anyone who don't have enough TOEFL score must take this education. It's like English courses. You won't get any credit for these English lessons, doesn't affect gpa, that is just preparation for next years. If you succeed this preparation year, then you start your 4 years of undergraduate education.
Do MIT consider this English preparation time as academic year? I ask this because there is a time limitation that i showed above. If i take this education should i think that i spent one year in my university when i apply MIT..?
Thanks for your replies.
