Yay one of my evaluations is processed! I guess they actually did make it.
I stole this from a different college forum
Answer these questions while you wait !
1) Where you're from
2) When you submitted your application
3) How long/hard did you work on your app?
4) What do you want to major in?
5) What other schools are you applying to?
6) Is MIT your top choice?
Everything is processed for me except my Eval B... damnit.
To answer napalm:
1) New Jersey. South Jersey though, and not near the shore.
2) From my end I submitted it about a week early.
3) Definitely the app I worked hardest on. Had lots of people read my essays.
4) Electrical and Computer Engineering
5) Rutgers (accepted, actually), Carnegie Mellon, Cornell, Uni of Maryland, Drexel, Northeastern, Boston University, and Lehigh
6) Absolutely. I wish it wasn't, considering how difficult it is to get in. >_>
1) Dallas Area
2) 10/31/12 (yeah...)
3) I had so much stuff with school going on that only my parents read my essays. I wish I had more time.
5) Some ivies and safeties
6) One of my top few. Money is a issue though.
Just checking out the admissions blogs, I bet there are a bunch of male chess players wondering if Chris LaBounty was reading his app when he wrote the post. I would be freaking out if he had mentioned anything that could've been from my app, but I'm a girl, so couldn't have been. Plus evaluation A isn't processed yet, so mine isn't being read.
1) Dallas area as well!
3) I worked really hard on it but I felt a bit rushed at the end. Rereading it now though, I'm pretty happy with everything I sent.
4) physics! or maybe something else
5) princeton, gtech, case western, maybe some more ivies
6) Yeah it is at the moment, I haven't done really any visits yet so I'm not 100% sure though.
eeeeeerrghh just reread my app, found a typo... It's pretty glaring as well, subject/verb agreement in an essay. -_____-

lucky americans haha I so envy you guys cuz I'm just an Asian international student studying in Canada. I don't like the fact that MIT only allows U.S applicants for early action kinda feel discriminatory. Well best of luck!
Eval A still waiting (I last checked a few days ago, lol), everything else is in!
1) Where you're from: The Peach State
2) When you submitted your application: Halloween
3) How long/hard did you work on your app?: Poured a lot of time into essays, but only worked them in October 2012
4) What do you want to major in? BME
5) What other schools are you applying to? Places similar to MIT, safeties
6) Is MIT your top choice? Yup. I would stop applying if an acceptance came in (:
I don't like the fact that MIT only allows U.S applicants for early action kinda feel discriminatory.
It's not intended to be discriminatory -- MIT is only able to admit a small number of international students, and they find that it's most fair to everyone if they evaluate all the international applicants together in one round.
What is the admission notification experience? Is it simply getting an email directing you to login to find out? Or, is it a FedEx box delivered by Tim the Beaver that erupts into a confetti cannon and a holographic version of the Logarhythms a capella group chanting my name in gangnam style that I am a 2013 frosh? I know the former is kinda plain, but the latter would be even sweeter!!

Roughly 4-7 days before the decisions are released, you'll find a post on the blogs that says what day and time you can receive your decision.
You'll head to a site for decisions, login with your MyMIT credentials, and it will be sitting there. Here's that blog post from last year, posted by Chris on 12/12/2011, to inform students of the 12/17 release date. The post also contains other information on the specifics of accessing the decisions, which you may be interested in:
Very excited to hear about my decision to MIT. I'm satisfied with my high school career so far, and hope I can continue learning at MIT next year!
1) Where you're from: Washington State
2) When you submitted your application: 11/1
3) How long/hard did you work on your app?: Spent several weeks compiling info, writing essays, and revising. In short, a long time and a lot of work.
4) What do you want to major in?: BioE
5) What other schools are you applying to?: Univ. of Wash., UCSD, UCB, UCLA, maybe an ivy.
6) Is MIT your top choice? YES.
