    Assuming that you and your parents can afford MIT, you now have it as a safety...

    So now you can concentrate on applying only to other schools which you may choose over MIT for whatever reason.

    I'd suggest spending some time on the MIT forum here on CC to get an "insider's" view of the school.

    The MIT admissions blog also has a number of students who post - that might give you some additional insight into the school.

    Don't bother. The only two universities that beat MIT in cross-admits are Yale and Harvard.

    Yeah pd2013 I applied to several low matches/safeties cause I was freaking out about being rejected everywhere lol. But y'know, any way you slice it, our current predicament is probably one of the most luxurious "problems" to have. :p

    My nephew is a PHD candidate in Micro Biology @ MIT. He loves it. He went undergrad to Carnegie Mellon.

    I also was accepted EA to MIT. I applied to Princeton as well.

    Right now it's a matter of which school will provide FA, if I am admitted to Princeton (not counting on it).

    If I don't get into Princeton, I will be quite happy at MIT (#1 choice plus I visted and liked the campus somewhat, I don't think I appreciated it fully at the time because I visited Harvard right before lol.)

    Go for it, apply to other schools. It doesn't hurt to try!
