MIT SAT Score Analysis (New 1600 SAT)

The 25th percentile New SAT score is 1500, and the 75th percentile SAT score is 1570.

In other words, a 1500 places you below average, while a 1570 will move you up to above average. There's no absolute SAT requirement at MIT, but they really want to see at least a 1500 to have a chance at being considered.

If you live in an MIT suburb such as Belmont, you may want to consult a directory of best tutors to boost your score a bit.

Average GPA: 4.17

The average GPA at MIT is 4.17. This makes MIT Extremely Competitive for GPAs.

image description

(Most schools use a weighted GPA out of 4.0, though some report an unweighted GPA. This school did not officially report its average GPA, but we've estimated it here using data from over 1,000 schools.)

With a GPA of 4.17, MIT requires you to be at the top of your class. You'll need nearly straight A's in all your classes to compete with other applicants. You should also have taken plenty of AP or IB classes to show your ability to excel in academic challenge.

If you're a junior or senior, your GPA is hard to change from this point on. If your GPA is at or below the school average of 4.17, you'll need a higher SAT score to compensate and show that you're prepared to take on college academics. This will help you compete effectively with other applicants.

Admissions Rate: 6.7%

The acceptance rate at MIT is 6.7%. In other words, of 100 students who apply, only 7 are admitted.

This means the school is very selective. Scores are vital to getting past their first round of filters. After that, you will need to impress them beyond just your academic scores.

Final Admissions Verdict

image description

Because this school is extremely selective, getting a high SAT score and GPA is vital to having a chance at getting in. If you don't pass their SAT and GPA requirements, they'll likely reject you without much consideration.

To be safe, you should aim for the 75th percentile, with a 1570 SAT and a 4.17 GPA or higher to be above average.

This is only part of the challenge - after this, you'll need to impress them beyond your academic scores, with your accomplishments and extracurriculars. But if you apply with a 1535 SAT or below, you unfortunately have a small chance of getting in.

So Chance Me Maybe? by Joel G. '18

Like most MIT students, I was aware when I applied that I was a highly competitive applicant. I had taken several AP classes, I had a perfect GPA, my interviewer loved me, I had founded a few clubs, and my test scores were stellar. However, also like most MIT students, I was still very anxious about the application process.

JUST KIDDING! Absolutely everything I just said is a horrible lie. Here’s the truth:

I have never taken an AP test in my life. My GPA wasn’t perfect (still isn’t). I was convinced I failed my interview, I once almost cofounded half of a club, my math SAT was 40 points below MIT’s lower 25th percentile, and I wasn’t very anxious about applying because I knew beyond a shadow of a doubt that I was getting rejected. That’s the truth.

Last September, I was embarrassingly naive about college admissions. I had only a few ideas about colleges and had drafted a handful of generic essays, but really didn’t have a good sense of how competitive of an applicant I was or what sort of schools I should target. I did know that time was running out, and that I needed to get serious about applications very, very soon, so I hopped on the internet and dived into research.

It didn’t take long to come across College Confidential. At first, it seemed like a rare gem – a unique online community of peers sharing the same stresses and anxieties. College Confidential had the answers to all of my questions – about how I should approach applying, about which colleges would be a good fit for me, and about which colleges I had a chance at getting into.

It’s too bad all of those answers were wrong.

What I learned from College Confidential was that admissions was a competition, in which the applicants strove to cast themselves in as positive a light as possible, highlighting their achievements, emphasizing their strengths, and inventing some sort of “hook.” I learned that MIT and Caltech were far too nerdy for me, since the ultra-geek culture did nothing but study and mire in awkwardness. And I learned that a person of my background with my “stats” had literally an absolute zero chance of getting admitted, that these top-tier universities were way out of my league, and that they only admitted students who had been published in Science, won international math Olympiads, and were already independently wealthy from Google’s acquisition of their start-up.

OK, that wasn’t completely true; some students only had two of the three.

But, for some irrational reason that I didn’t really understand at the time, I applied. I told myself that it was “practice” for the “real” applications to “real” colleges that really mattered, but I don’t think I really believed that. Starting in August, I studied prompts and scoured websites. September saw me working on essays full-time, procrastinating on research papers so that I could work on apps in class. By October, I was spending more time on MIT and Caltech than I was on schoolwork – I wrote and rewrote, edited and revised, tooled and retooled until my essays flowed like mercury. And then I did it all over again, because my topics were boring. I worked feverishly right up to the deadline date – and submitted, confident in my preparation for the applications that really mattered.

But something very, very odd had begun to happen. I got attached to MIT. Emotionally. Romantically. Thoughts crept in that I hadn’t considered before – might – might – I actually have a chance? No, of course not. That’s just your ego trying desperately to feel optimistic. I banished the idea from my head, but I couldn’t get it out of my heart. I obsessively devoured the admissions blogs, staying up late into the night chuckling over adventures, catastrophes, and legendary hacks. I procrastinated some more on research papers (I did that a lot), refreshing the admissions site or reading bloggers’ profiles as if they were superheroes (we aren’t). I began to daydream of getting admitted, then to actually dream of getting admitted. Like a cheesy chick flick, I fell accidentally in love with something insanely out of reach that I tried in vain to remain detached from.

It wasn’t that I felt like my “stats” had improved. It wasn’t about numbers at all. It was about culture. I felt like MIT was literally built with me in mind – that every facet of what I had previously assumed to be an irreconcilably diverse personality would fit perfectly into place in an energetic environment of similar minds. The more I read, the clearer this became. I certainly couldn’t allow myself to get my hopes up, or my poor psyche would be irreparably crushed when I was rejected, but I couldn’t shake the feeling that MIT was where I was meant to be. Where I’d thrive. Where I belonged.

December 14th was the day. The Ultimate Day On Which I Learn Of My Rejection. I was scheduled to work that morning. I’m pretty sure I did a horrible job. My mind was about 7,125 kilometers away, as evidenced by the fact that I had calculated that number. I waited. It was excruciating. At precisely 11:14 AM, I slipped away from my hosting duties and ducked into the employee bathroom. I fumbled my phone out of my pocket. I refreshed

The page stuttered.

And sputtered.


And spat out some text.





Wait, what? That’s not what it says. It says something like “It is my pleasure to offer you…”


I quickly texted the entire planet, went back to work, and continued to do an even worse job. It slowly sunk in: it wasn’t a joke. Even now I’m not quite used to it: I’ll be walking by Killian and be spontaneously hit by “Holy [cow]. I got into MIT.” But what I think about most is the fact that I almost didn’t apply. This scares me more than I can express – the precarious chain of events that happened to lead me to convincing myself to apply is sobering at best, horrifying at worst.

You see, the admissions officers truly are not lying. We’ve been raised in a world in which ‘institutions’ or governing bodies have a conspiratory stigma about them, in which one must “game the system” to achieve even the ordinary. This isn’t true here. The admissions office is run by real people (I’ve seen them! I have proof!). And when they tell you things like this or this or this, please listen to them. They’re really being sincere. “Being yourself” is not a trap, because it’s yourself who is admitted – not your scores.

And, finally, please please PLEASE don’t pay attention to the chatter on College Confidential. Although (arguably) communities are generally good, application anxiety turns the forums into an Imposter Syndrome Magnifying Glass, healthy for nobody’s psyche. If, as an applicant, you think that MIT is “out of your league” because you looked at a dozen numbers from somebody else’s life, consider this: I posted 4 (four!) Chance threads. Here are some of my responses:

  • “MIT: High reach”
  • “I think MIT will be a very high reach”
  • “I think your best shot would be CMU… I think it’s something a [little] more manageable”
  • “The generic super reach for HYPM”
  • “EC’s aren’t that good imo, to spread out kind of random imo”
  • “MIT: High Reach with a 710 Math score. Aim for a 760-800”
  • “For MIT and Brown, try to bump up your SAT to at least 2200.”
  • “you aren’t smart enough for any mwahaha”

Pursue your passions. Unfortunately, the raw statistics are daunting – that’s the cruelty of finite facilities – but true passions are never “generic super reaches.” If MIT is one of those passions, not because it sounds cool or looks fancy, but because it’s MIT, then apply as yourself, not as who some random username thinks you need to be. The internet wants to reduce you into a pile of numbers and acronyms so that it can dismiss your entire life with an admission rate.

Don’t let that happen.

Admission in MIT

I'm attaching a link to a blog post put up by CollegeVine on how to apply to MIT.

There is no set of ECs you can do to get into any top college so this kind of question is rather naive and immature. If the college admissions process was like a flight checklist, then everyone would have the same attributes and have the same stats and basically, the college admissions process would be a lottery where 96% get rejected randomly and 4% of the golden tickets go to random winners.

The key things are you have to have the best grades, best test scores, best stats to get into MIT. It's a meritocracy. There are no legacy admissions, they don't care if you are rich or poor and if you play a sport, tough luck, it's a D3 school so you aren't going to get paid to play on their teams. You might get recruited but you aren't getting a full ride to play lacrosse or tennis or swim for MIT.

So if you are applying for the most popular major at MIT which is CS, what do you think you have to prove to them in your ECs?

1. You better know how to CODE left, right, up-down, and sideways in multiple languages. And you better have some evidence that you are a STEM genius.

2. You better have some major leadership roles because MIT is a collaborative team-based college. They don't like lone wolves or people that don't have good interpersonal skills.

3. You should have some spikes that prove you want to make the world a better place. Whether that's through community service, entrepreneurship, or other passions.

4. You better be a fun good person because, at MIT where 1/2 of the students belong to Frats and Sororities, you have to play as hard as you study.

As I said, there are no hard and fast guidelines because this is the best STEM school in America, they don't need to accommodate everyone just people they like.

The pastry shop is not our family business, I bought it from a bankrupt Italian almost seventeen years ago. So only the children remain. I like to watch them, look at their smiles, rejoice with them. I never tried to deliberately seduce or seduce them, at least until the death of my wife, but today's youth are not what they used to be.
