How long does it take to hear back as a transfer student?
Some students may receive a decision within a few weeks, but the majority of reviews take 6-8 weeks to reach a decision. Please refer to our Dates & Deadlines for more information about when transfer applicants can anticipate an admission decision.
Can you appeal MIT rejection?
To the best of my knowledge, MIT does not allow appeals. So, your letter will mostly not even be considered by the admissions committee. But you may certainly send a letter – you have nothing to lose.
Do universities send out rejection letters?
Some colleges will email you the rejection and others will simply direct you o check the portam. Rarely will they send a physical letter for a rejection (in this day and age!) Universities send admission decision by emails or you have to check the admissions portal when a decision has been made.
Can I transfer to MIT after 2 years of college?
However, we cannot accept transfer applications from students who at the time of entry to MIT will have finished less than one year or more than two and a half years (i.e., five terms) of college because of our residency requirements.
Should I apply to MIT with a graduate degree or continuing education?
If you are ineligible for either first-year or transfer admissions, or simply prefer to seek other routes to and through MIT, you may consider exploring a graduate degree or continuing and professional education.
What is the transfer application for college?
The transfer application is intended for students who have finished high school and completed at least one year of college. If you are still in high school, you are considered a first-year applicant regardless of how many classes you may have taken at the university level.
Is it normal to get rejected from all colleges?
Yes, some lucky people will get accepted to all the schools they apply to, but the fact is that most students will get rejected from at least one school, especially if they’re applying to highly competitive ones. Rejection is part of life: It sucks to admit this, but it’s the truth.
