<p>1- The EC's that I'll be participating in in 12th grade - am I allowed to add those with the midyear report? Or should I just wait until I'm confirmed to be in them and add them on the regular application?
I assume 12th grade ECs are just as important as the ones of the years before them?</p>
<p>2- My school has a quarterly schedule. First quarter finishes around Christmas. Second quarter and mid-years finish in February, with results out at the end of Feb. For my mid-year report, is that just the first quarter, or first + second quarters + mid-years [the results for the latter 2 come out at the same time]?</p>
<p>3- Am I correct in that recommendations are supposed to be printed out, given to the teacher to fill out by hand, and then mailed? If so, is MIT supposed to receive the rec. by Jan 1, or should it be sent by that date? Just making sure here.</p>
<p>4- Supplimentary recommendations [a third one, for example] - will they be considered equally with the other 2 or of slightly less importance?</p>
<p>5- There's a "add anything else you want us to know about you" box at the end of the application. Can I write whatever I want in that, and of whatever length? As a kind of extra essay, perhaps? [bit longer than 250 words though.]</p>
<p>6- I have a few quick questions about financial aid:
Will siblings' income count towards family income?
Will a sibling starting a master's degree [at the same time I'd start at MIT if I'm accepted] be considered in the financial aid package? [parents will have to pay for it.]</p>
