Applying to MIT

  1. Mar 31, 2009 #1

    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
