MIT Transfer Essay Prompt

<p>Hello. I was wondering what you guys think of the essay prompt for MIT</p>

<ol>
<li>) Please explain your reasons for wanting to attend MIT</li>
<li>) Please discuss why you are considering transferring from your current college or university.</li>
</ol>

<p>Though I realize that they are completely separate prompt, the distinction seems little less apparent. I mean the reason for transferring and reason for wanting to attend MIT seems to overlap. What do you think?</p>

<p>Should I write prompt #2 in more general terms to suggest the general reason for wanting to transfer out.
and #1 more specifically about my choice of wanting to transfer to MIT?</p>

<p>Thank you.</p>

<p>I think it's not overlap.</p>

<ol>
<li>Why do you want to leave your current college?</li>
<li>Why MIT a good fit for you? (Why not some other college?)</li>
</ol>

<p>I am not an expert on this matter though.</p>
