This is advice from a Cornell student to an applicant.</p>
<p>Hello! I'll get straight down to business. First of all, I'll need to know your ICSE marks in detailed in addition to everything you sent me. The ICSE is a key aspect of your application, and is used by American colleges to compare you to your peers. I scanned through your resume and your scores, and everything looks pretty good. Now because I've gone through the stage you're going through now, I'm gonna list some key facts you need to know as you head into your application process. Read them carefully. I'll forewarn you though, you're not going to like many of them and are probably going to think they dont apply to you. While I can't help that, I strongly discourage it. Here we go.
1. The MIT Disillusionment
Six Indians got into MIT this year. All six were participants of International Olympiads. I went through your resume, and I know, and hope you do too, that the Cyber Olympiad and Science Olympiad aren't official Olympiads. I have had the privilege of personally knowing three of them - Aakanksha Sharda, Keshav Dhandhania and Akashnil Dutta. Aakanksha learn French during her ICSE and got a 98, was the only Indian female to ever make it to the International Physics Olympiad and one of the only Indians to go to the International Linguistics Olympiad. She came 17th in the IIT. Keshav Dhandhania made it to the International Informatics Olympiad a few times and the International Mathematics Olympiad. Akashnil Dutta has been making it to the International Mathematics Olympiad ever since he was in class 10. The point I'm trying to make is that MIT looks at its international applicants a little differently then other colleges. All the admits are geniuses and true to the word. These applicants don't care about the admissions process or which college they get into because they know they're the best. I know you, like me, are smart. But we're not at that level yet. Thousands of people try to make MIT and get rejected every year. While I'm not discouraging you from trying, because it involves a separate application, I strongly urge you to not take on the additional burden and stick to the other colleges. Take it from me: you won't make MIT.
