Int. Applicants

<p>That's a stupid question, but I'm curious. I have seen on MIT's website that every year two or three italian applicants have been accepted; so I was wondering if an international applicants fights against the other 3 thousand applicants or against his country applicants.
I think that the answer should be the second, but I am not very sure..</p>

<p>You go against everybody; not just people from your country.</p>
