<p>Think about it a little.. Your stats ate definitely solid, but then again, I'm pretty sure so are everyone else's who apply to MIT. Try to focus on something that will really set you apart from other applicants. Not trying to be a downer, you definitely have a chance with your resume but I don't quite see anything that would stick to the readers mind. Maybe use your school transfers in essay to show overcoming extreme challenges. Hope this helps</p>

<p>Thank you for your advice!</p>

<p>Other than that, is there anything else I should be working on?</p>

<p>Thank you again.</p>

<p>make sure you describe your life situation a lot, it adds a lot of unique character to you that MIT would like. basically what somebo123 said
