List of schools I interviewed with and my interview experience
485 Words
Massachusetts Institute of Technology: It's important to know that you have to reach out to them for an interview, and they definitely accept more people who have interviewed. The chances of getting in aren't 0% if you don't interview, but it's better that you do. Remember the interviewers want to help you get in!

I found it through internet personalities like Laci Green, a...

Supplemental Essay “Why us” school essay
535 Words
Ever since I was a baby, I’ve been a very logical thinker; I’ve always had an innate interest in simply “figuring things out.” While most kids were running around and playing outside, I’d happily sit in my living room by myself and count blocks, or carefully piece together intricate puzzles, or think long and hard about which shape fits in which slot instead of recklessly slam the cube into the circular hole. This all set me up...
