On the MIT Dashboard, you’ll see who your interviewer is. You are responsible for setting up the interview so schedule an appointment with him or her as soon as possible. To begin the application, go to “Apply online & application tracking.” As you’ll see, there’s a Part I and a Part II. You can fill them out concurrently, however, it’s recommended that you complete Part I before moving on to Part II. Part I seems long because it’s seven pages, but it’s easy to fill out quickly. Most of it simply requires personal information about your parents as well as yourself. Towards the bottom of the first page, you’ll be asked to enter a little bit about your background and identity. Use this as an opportunity to tell the admissions officers more about your unique background. On page 3, you’ll be asked to decide whether you’re applying Early Action or Regular Action. Page 6 is where you’ll enter all your high school information. Once you’re done with Part I, move on to Part II, which has 10 pages. Make sure to always stay underneath the word limit for every section you have to write out or else your responses will be cut off when the admissions officer goes to read it. Also, be very specific about every personal response you give. You want to make it as tangible as possible. For Activities, you are only allowed to enter 5 school-year activities, 6 summer activities, and 3 jobs so make sure that you choose the most important activities to list in order of priority. All AP and IB courses and scores are entered on page 4 of Part II. Page 6 is where you’ll enter your standardized test scores, for example, SAT, ACT, or TOEFL. On page 7, you’ll self-report all your high school grades as shown on your transcripts. For letters of recommendation, on page 8, you’ll need one from a math or science teacher and another from a humanities teacher. Once you completed your application, print a preview of it to make sure everything has been accurately entered. If everything checks out, submit it.
