<p>I've looked at their average SAT on collegeboard, and ive searched around for an average GPA, but i still have no real idea of how much of a genius a person needs to be in order to get into MIT. it seems like besides the math score, im already past/right on the average of the score ranges that collegeboard gives. however, im starting to think that people who get average scores within that middle 50% score range have strong EC's or some other special attribute, because thsoe scores do not seem terribly high at all. this is especially true when i see the average of the middle 50% score range for Caltech, which is significantly higher than that of MIT's.

can anyone tell me, to the best of their knowledge, what could be good scores/grades/ECs/achievements, etc. for admission into MIT? any help would be greatly appreciated. thanks!</p>

<p>idk if im doing this right, but

MIT

middle 50% reading: 660-760 avg. 710

middle 50% math: 720-800 avg. 760

middle 50% writing: 660-750 avg. 705</p>

<p>Caltech

middle 50% reading: 700-780 avg. 740

middle 50% math: 770-800 avg. 785

middle 50% writing: 680-770 avg. 725</p>

<p>i got a 730 reading 710 math and 710 writing. does this mean that, excluding ALL other variables, if i scored a 760 on the math on a future retake, i would have a half-decent chance of being admitted into MIT? i dont really understand how seriously i should take these "middle 50% score ranges." also, im currently in precalculus as a junior and will take BC calculus next year. im getting A+s in precalculus, but will it look weaker in comparison to someone who's been taking AB Calculus and maybe getting a B+ or an A-/A?

one more.... is a 91 for ap physics b going to be frowned upon by MIT? ...

thanks!</p>
