How to create a competitive research portfolio for MIT?
I am a junior and I am planning to conduct research in the upcoming summer. I was wondering if anyone could advise regarding what kind of research do prospective students put in their MIT Research Portfolio, the additional component that can be submitted, so that I could plan out exactly what I should do to make my portfolio more competitive. I will be applying in the fall of 2021.

I agree with @OFHanson! MIT is looking for extremely competitive applicants, and if you submit a portfolio, you should have something impressive to show in it. It would be ideal if you get a published paper alongside a research team or participate in a competitive science research competition like these: https://blog.collegevine.com/10-science-research-competitions-for-high-schoolers/
