Reapplying to MIT?
basically, I've been wondering, is it worth it? I've messed up my application last year terribly - I know I have. Admittedly, I was just depressed as hell, and I guess it reflected perfectly.
But I have more or less managed to get my life on track since then - I've received a national-level award, I was lucky to get excellent school-leaving exam results that give me hope even for Cambridge University and I have moved to another country to start a life here, where I have more opportunities. And on one hand, I'd like to apply to MIT again and do it properly this time. But at the same time, while I believe my academic track is alright, I'm aware that most of my life I've been the person who will quietly sit doing their own thing - I'm only now learning to overcome my fear and really seek opportunities and blend in more with the world around.
And I just don't know, is it worth it to reapply?
Just a note: I did NOT take a gap year just to reapply to MIT. I took a gap year, because I've always wanted to see the UK, and that's what I'm currently doing.
