so everyone knows that MIT likes people who are good at math and science, but i'm wondering how much low english/history grades hurt you? i have solid B's in my english and history courses through high school. i've always taken them AP or honors, even though i'm not really that good at them. but see, i have 730 CR, 690 writing. and i made a 750 on SAT 2 lit. which kinda makes it seem like i'm just lazy... which i sort of am when it comes to subjects i don't like... and it's really the essay writing that kills me. because i'm a horrible writer.
but i have high A's in all my math and science classes.
so the question is, how much does MIT care?
do people with high grades all around have alot better chance of acceptance?
