Any Korean here applied to MIT and got accepted?

I'm applying next year and need some advice

I would like to know what you guys' GPA and SAT was and what ur extra curricular (including volunteer and working) was

It would be great to see what u guys wrote for your application essay

Admissions of international students to top US universities is extremely competitive.

There's only 18 undergrads but 252 graduate students. That's quite a lot compared to the other foreign countries.

I know but still the number's a shock
in a 4000 student undergrad, only 20 koreans?
That's worse than the high school I'm in right now! we have more than 20 koreans with about 500 students

Hang on... are you a Korean living in Korea, or Korean-American? There are only 20 of the former, but I imagine that there are many more of the latter...

Anyway, posting here is looking for a needle in a haystack. You might want to look at http://web.mit.edu/ksa/www/.

I am a korean but not in korea. I'm studying in the US right now, but I am a Korean citizen, so I belong to the former
