MIT Interview Process

Hey everyone! So as a junior who's really into MIT, I want to be as prepared as possible. Does MIT offer interviews to everyone who applies, or is it a selective process? Any insights would be appreciated.

MIT tries to offer interviews to as many applicants as they can, but it ultimately depends on the availability of their alumni network. The interviews are conducted by Educational Counselors (ECs) who are MIT alumni and volunteer their time. Since interviews are contingent on the ECs' availability in your area, not every applicant will receive an interview request.

If you do get the opportunity for an interview, make sure to utilize it. Interviews at MIT are informational, evaluative, and a way for them to get to know you better. Keep in mind that even though interviews are only one part of the holistic admissions process, they can still be valuable for making your application stand out. Prepare by reflecting on your interests, achievements, and any unique aspects of your background that you'd like to share.

Make sure to treat the interview as a conversation! These interviews are less formal compared to other colleges, so be yourself, and relax. This is your chance to showcase your personality, ask any questions you have about MIT, and learn more about the school from someone who has experienced it. Good luck on your application journey!
