Massachusetts Institute of Technology (MIT)



The Massachusetts Institute of Technology
is a research university located in Cambridge, Massachusetts along the bank of the Charles
River Basin. MIT has five schools and one college, containing
a total of 32 academic departments, with a strong emphasis on scientific and technological
research. However, in the past 60 years, MIT's educational
disciplines have expanded beyond the physical sciences and engineering into fields like
economics, philosophy, linguistics, political science, and management. Founded by William Barton Rogers in 1861,
MIT followed the European university model and emphasized laboratory instruction from
an early date. The university was one of the pioneers in
research and training collaborations between the academy, industry, and government. Collaborative arrangements with industrialists
like Alfred P. Sloan and Thomas Edison led the school to establish an Office of Corporate
Relations and an Industrial Liaison Program in the 1930s and 1940s. These programs now permit over 600 companies
to license research and consult with MIT faculty and researchers. Undergraduates are required to complete an
extensive core curriculum called the General Institute Requirements. The science requirement, generally completed
during freshman year as prerequisites for classes in science and engineering majors,
comprises two semesters of physics classes covering classical mechanics and electricity
and magnetism, two semesters of math covering single variable calculus and multivariable
calculus, one semester of chemistry, and one semester of biology. Undergraduates are also required to take a
laboratory class in their major, eight Humanities, Arts, and Social Sciences classes (at least
three in a concentration and another four unrelated subjects). MIT eases freshmen into their undergraduate
experience by grading all first semester courses on a pass/no entry basis. Second semester classes are scored with letter
grades, but anything below a C is not reported on the student's transcript. After that…well, MIT's classes have a reputation
for being very intense. But there is no doubt that the university's
students receive a world-class education. The university guarantees housing for all
four years and freshmen are required to live on campus. Undergraduates participate in research through
something called UROP – the Institute's Undergraduate Research Opportunities Program. By the time they graduate, almost 85 percent
of MIT students will have collaborated on and helped produce real, ground breaking research. In fact, many undergraduates find their names
appearing in published papers. A few even earn patents. Are you seeking admission to a stretch school
such as MIT? We have the expertise and we’re here to

    Hi Addie and thanks for your question.

    I'm not allowed to embed links here, but if you search "MIT admissions for international students," you should find your answer. There are a number of international students at MIT and other top US schools representing a large number of countries including Brazil, so it certainly is possible to be admitted.'

    Best of luck with your applications!

    There's no one GPA or test score that will get you in; MIT and other top schools turn down thousands of 4.0 students, perfect SAT scorers, and valedictorians every year. You need great grades and test scores (but not necessarily perfect grades and test scores) just to have a shot, but then you need to find some way to stand out from all the other students applying with great grades and test scores, because they'll only take about 8% of applicants.
