My name is Nick, and I got into the Massachusetts Institute of Technology through a combination of extracurriculars and maintaining a high standard of academic performance with a rigorous course load. In high school I was a part of multiple STEM focused academic groups such as Science Olympiad and was also on a competitive club soccer team, so balancing my time played a very important role in getting admitted to MIT. Outside of school I also competed in a couple of aerospace engineering competitions and enrolled in a college math course. Through the admissions process I made sure to highlight my passion for both space and engineering and how they shaped my high school experience. Want to learn from more people like Nick?
