What are my chances of getting into MIT

<p>Dear all,</p>

<p>Yes I am Indian. I would like to know my chances of getting into MIT, why MIT?: because my passion to build things pushes me there: even my favorite comic book character went there, Tony Stark.; I can understand that you people out there are not the admission officers @ MIT but sure gives it a shot. Classes are as follows (currently a sophomore):</p>

<p>AP Euro
English 2 Honors
Intergrated II (A mix of geometry and Alg II)
Biology CP
Spanish II
Sport: Golf, Tennis, Cycling (quitting basketball)</p>

<p>As you can see, I plan on taking chemistry and ALG II / TRIG online at calcampus (which MIT accepts) so I can take AP Chem and Pre-calculus Honors. I have won the overall 3rd in the state wide orange county pentathlon in CA. I am planning on taking SATs this year (10th grade) and PSAT next year.I also invent random things (e.g. the car washing blender [ My first invention]).what shot do I have at MIT.</p>

<p>Ha ha. Come back when you're a senior. It's incredibly hard to say without a more thorough profile. Just do your best. The most important piece of advice I've learned about college admissions is to not obsess over a single one.</p>

<p>I agree with the above poster. Sure, MIT can be your dream college, but definitely look into other universities. And re-post a couple of years later when you have a more complete list including SAT, SAT II, and AP scores along with stuff like GPA, class rank, extracurriculars, etc.</p>

<p>I am not over just one college, I am looking into Yale, Stanford, etc. I wish to find an array so I can work toward it. 9th grade, i have to say, was the worst year for me as i did not do good considering the friends I had. This year I am going back with the scholastic people (people who care for me). I made a huge mistake last year. :(</p>

<p>Since I am a sophomore i feel i should take a shot at it.</p>

<p>Would comin back when i'm a junior help?
what about my math? :(</p>

<p>Well, we need 4 years' GPA, SAT scores, SAT II scores, and a better list of extracurriculars (i.e. one that reflects your 4 years of high school). Just work hard and come back at the end of junior year or beginning of senior year. Use the test prep forums to help you do well on AP, SAT, ACT and SAT II.</p>

<p>Dude, really come back in 2 years</p>

<p>Yeah, you'd have to at least give us your GPA.</p>

<p>I had a 3.5 last year</p>

<p>I am also going to join key club, any other Ecs u recommend?</p>

<p>Really, nobody can tell you! </p>

<p>Last year, MIT admitted 864/10,970 young men who applied. The 10,106 who were not admitted were not all rejected because they were unqualified. MIT (and Stanford and Yale) deny admission to an awful lot of perfectly qualified applicants every spring.</p>

<p>Even with data from a whole high-school career, nobody can really tell you anything encouraging about your chances for MIT. The most anybody could tell you would be, "Well, you're in the running."</p>

<p>At this point, you don't seem to be out of the running. If you want to go to MIT, take every academic and scientific challenge you can, in and out of school. Make good use of your summers. In the end, you might get into MIT, but most people don't. And if you don't, at least you should be really well prepared to succeed wherever you do end up.</p>

<p>Your going to need near perfect SAT, SAT II and ACT Score. Along with a 4.00+ GPA if you want to have a chance. You should have gotten a 4.0 your freshman year.</p>

<p>At least I'm in the running, that is a good start. I have also read some posts dating the well qualified people they reject are people (in their belief) would never review if they bomb a test or blow a class. It is very interesting, they want people who are smart and creative yet a person who will stand back up and do better next time. :)</p>

<p>Sorry for the misspellings, I used an iPhone posting this</p>

<p>My freshman year was in limbo for me, class changes, confusion in administration with me and another student. It never was a highlight :(. This year I have my old friends ( the smart ones. And I hope to excel to points no one has</p>

<p>Would vedic chanting count as an Ec?</p>
