Can an INDIAN get in MIT??? Hi! I am an Indian student in class 11th(passed my 10th this year). I want to do undergraduation in Aeronautical Engineering from top Universities like Massachussetes, Stanford or UC,Berkeley. What are the 'essentials' an applicant must have to make it to these colleges? How do my high school transcript (I mean high school scores) affect my chances at admissions? Is it true that one has to do loads of Extra-curricular activities to impress the admission officers to your side? And last- Is it possible for a very good student in India- very good here says 90% scores- to get in MIT or they consider only outstanding kind of students from India? Please reply! As I don't want to end daydreaming - Neither going to MIT, Stanford, or UC, nor to Indan IITs. And yes! what minimum marks they require in SAT for an international student?
