CA Essay - Possibly cliche? Described myself as a composite of my parents, clubs, school, and traveling experiences.</p>

<p>u wrote that all in 5 boxes for extracurriculars?? crapshot for anyone as said multiple times before lol... hope u understand a chance thread is useless</p>

<p>Crapshoot, to reiterate what Ambitiousteen said =)</p>

<p>What will hurt you is that you have no research.</p>

<p>I disagree that having no research will hurt you. I know plenty of people who never did research did get into MIT and did much much less ECs and lower scores than you. So yah, it's a crapshoot, like Ambitiousteen said.</p>

<p>So, which school did u go to (I would say it seems like your school would beat my school since your school sends so many people to top schools)? I also live in CT too, right in Waterford, and I've wanted to intern in the Yale Hospital's Ear Lab for the school year, but you know, 45 min is pretty far away, so I ended up at UCONN Avery Point interning in a mercury lab.</p>

<p>I don't think MIT is a crapshoot at all compared to the Ivy Leagues that get a ton more applicants that are well qualified. MIT seems to be more forgiving about scores and pay attention to if you have a passion for something.</p>

<p>i guess... if that were true they'd accept more students prepre...</p>
