Here are a few statistics:
SAT subject test:
math II 800
5s on all 4 of my ap tests
GPA of 4.27 weighted (slightly above average admittance GPA from my school to both Universities)
Here's the thing, I'm really into computer science and web development. I even wrote my college essay about one of my websites.
MIT is obviously more technical and supposedly better for computer science, but I feel like every other kid applying early to MIT will have app and web development. Would it be worth the early application?
I feel like I'd stand out more and be more unique if I applied early to Harvard, because computer science is pretty small there. Also, they are looking to grow their engineering and applied sciences department, so it might look good if I was interested in that.
All of that said, I would probably rather go to MIT just because it's better. So which one should I use my REA on? Thanks
