Rather than asking you to write one long essay, the MIT application consists of several short response questions and essays designed to help us get to know you.
Besides the essays, MIT requires an activities list and a self-reported coursework form.
All questions have to be answered. There is also one final, open-ended, additional-information text box where you can tell anything else you think MIT really ought to know.
We’ll go over the best ways to approach the 'Why This College" essay and provide helpful tips to help you write an effective essay that impresses admission officers.
Your essays are a chance for admissions officers to get to know you beyond your grades, test scores, and ECLs. But how do you craft essays that reflect who you are AND impress the admissions officers?
Supplemental essays are required by many highly selective institutions in addition to the personal essay included in your Common Application. You can learn all about what they are and why they’re important here.
