With an 8% overall acceptance rate, it is difficult for anyone to gain admission to MIT. Every year more than 4,000 international students apply to MIT, and fewer than 150 are admitted. In addition to near-perfect or perfect test scores and grades, you will be expected to have taken the hardest possible curriculum, and to have shown intellectual curiosity by doing something in your chosen field that is above and beyond your school curriculum. For instance, if you have the chance to take an online course not offered at your school, or to participate in activities outside of school, you....View More

The best way to tell you about the MIT admissions process is to ask MIT themselves. They do an excellent job on their admissions blog of letting you know what they value, and how the selection process works. Here’s from a recent entry: After you click the submit button, it's easy to feel as though your application has entered a black hole. So what really happens between when you apply and when you receive your decision? We understand that not knowing the details can add a lot of stress to the waiting period, so we're happy to shed some light into that black hole. Once your application is complete,....View More

How hard is it for international students to get a full scholarship at MIT or any other great university for undergraduates? Is it even possible?
