MIT Class of 2007

2007admitrateEARLY ACTION

MIT accepted 15 percent of early admission applicants this year, a year that has seen significant admissions policy changes around the country.

This year, 3,584 students applied to MIT for early admission and 524 were accepted. MIT expects between 56 percent and 60 percent of early applicants to accept MIT's offer. Last year, MIT accepted 520 of 3,608 early applicants.

Demographics also remain similar. Both last year and this, MIT admitted 47 percent women. Last year MIT admitted 21 percent minorities, this year MIT admitted 22 percent.

MIT expects to have more applicants for the class of 2008 because of changes in other colleges' early policies. Many students apply to both MIT and Stanford.

MIT has not yet planned to change its early admission policy. Professor Donald R. Sadoway, chair of Committee on Undergraduate Admissions and Financial Aid, said that the changes at Yale and Stanford would affect MIT, but that there were currently no plans to change MIT's admissions policy.


MIT offered admission to only 16 percent of its applicants for the Class of 2007, extending offers to 1,735 of the 10,547 students who applied.

Matriculation yield is expected to exceed 58 percent, yielding a class of approximately 1,000 students, 20 more than the Class of 2006.

As usual, the prospective incoming class represents some of the country's top students. Ninety-three percent of admitted students are in the top five percent of their classes and 44 percent are valedictorians.

The mean SAT score for admitted students is 721 Verbal and 760 Math. Seventeen percent of admitted students are members of underrepresented minority groups.

Offers of admission were given to 850 women and 885 men, representing all 50 states and 59 countries and territories.

On the applications, 51 percent of admitted students indicated plans to pursue a major in the School of Engineering; 37 percent marked the School of Science; three percent indicated the Sloan School of Management; four percent chose the School of Humanities, Arts, and Social Sciences; three percent selected the School of Architecture and Planning; and two percent did not make a selection.

The states most heavily represented in the group of admitted students are California, New York, Massachusetts, Texas, and New Jersey.
