MIT Admissions Fall 2022

My son has an all day wrestling tournament on the 12/18.

I don’t know if the wrestling will be a good distraction (so he doesn’t constantly stare at the clock willing it to be 12:18 or 3:14 or 6:28, whatever)
OR
the stress of it being Decision day will mess up his wrestling focus.
UGH.

Yes, these next 2 weeks are going to be stressful for the kids.

My D vacillates between wanting to know the MIT decision asap and wanting them to be delayed as much as possible (because she says she’s going to be too nervous to see the result).

We just had an one-on-one conversation with our daughter just to prepare her to face the decisions. I’m sure things are different in a 17 year old brain. All the very best to all the kids who have applied. Lets hope for a good decision.

I would think that the EA decisions could be a little delayed considering MIT has been interviewing or reaching out to schedule one till this weekend. Anyone knows if it is the norm?

MIT Early Action admissions decisions will be released on Saturday, December 18, at 3:14 PM Eastern Time.

did anyone else who has coach’s support (“flagging”) get an interview with a former athlete? i had mine with an athlete and i am just curious whether it is coincidence or if they purposely coordinate it like that

My daughter was a supported athlete and was interviewed last yr by a non-athlete.

Same here. I was interviewed by a non athlete.

D22 is supported athlete and the interviewer was a local alumni and not former athlete

My daughter was interviewed by a local alumni and was not a former athlete. My daughter and coach exchanged emails but never had a phone conversation as such. According to the emails from the coach, even though they support your admissions file (although this does not guarantee admission to MIT) as a recruited athlete.

If you are asking about Regular Admissions candidates, the answer is yes. I am an interviewer and got my first assigned RA candidate 5 days ago. With regards to EA candidates, those interviews are now all over.

Did all of EA applicants get interview? There is no one left in overflow pool?

My son did not get an interview for EA. He’s a recruited athlete. He reached out to MIT expressing his interest in being interviewed but they said they simply didn’t have enough ECs to interview the large number of EA applicants and that if no ECs reached out to him by this past weekend it wouldn’t negatively affect his application. We are in TX.

i know. i have exchanged emails and zoomed with the coaches and visited campus in the fall to meet with a head coach in person. they said because of the nature of MIT, admissions will not admit anyone who couldn’t do the work/hypothetically get in themselves (they told me that 770 on SAT math was the absolute minimum for support as an athlete). however, between two similar applicants, admissions will usually chose the one whose application is “flagged” for athletic support.
