Hey, I'm applying to MIT and I'm wondering which application process is better to use. Questbridge, or MyMIT? I am African, and my parents don't make much. My EC's are okay, and my SAT score is just above 2000. I have a 4.0.
Neither application is preferred over the other. Some people like the MIT application because of the range of questions asked, and you can apply for a fee waiver if the fee presents a problem for your family. But Questbridge is a great program, and if you'd like to apply through their application and benefit from the other parts of their program, that's fabulous.
No, you cannot use both applications. If you are deferred, at that time you can update MIT with links to inventions and any awards, etc .. anything that strengthens your application (but not new essays).
