The Admissions Committee has
completed its review of your application.
I am very sorry to tell you that we are
unable to offer you admission to MIT.
Please understand that this is in no way a
judgment of you as a student or as a
person, since our decision has more to do
with the applicant pool than anything
else – many of our applicants are not
offered admission simply because we
don't have enough space in our entering
class. This year we had nearly 19,000
candidates for fewer than 1,600 offers of
admission, from which will come our
1,100 freshmen. Since all of our
decisions are made at one time and all
available spaces have been committed,
all decisions are final.
I wish you the very best in all of your
Dean of Admissions
