Transferring to MIT from Community College (The Science Behind It All)

by Chad Agrawal

transfer to mitDo you want to transfer to MIT from community college? Known for the university's emphasis on the sciences, Massachusetts Institute of Technology is a competitive school to transfer into, but not impossible. Before we go any further, just take a moment to think about your strengths and weaknesses. Will you succeed at a school that is very science oriented? If not, perhaps transferring to NYU or another university to focus on the arts may suit you better.

Ready to go on? Great. If you're going to transfer to MIT successfully, it's going to take dedication. I could say that it's more work than you can handle, but that wouldn't be true. Yes, some people study until their eyes give up on them. However, that's not very healthy or helpful to your education. We all know that well-meaning person who works very hard but accomplishes very little. To be more effective, you need a plan. Not just any plan, but a plan that works to transfer to Ivy League and Tier One universities like MIT.

What You Need To Transfer To MIT

In order to transfer to MIT, you'll need to become a top student at community college, score above the 95th percentile on the SATs, and write an exceptional transfer application. It's also recommend to have SAT II scores submitted for transfer applicants. This my sound overwhelming, especially if you have to retake your SATs, but it's worth it. MIT is an amazing school that will leave graduating with benefits similar to the ones you would get from Ivy League universities.

Becoming a top student at community college is way easier said than done. The same goes for retaking your SATs and putting together an exceptional transfer application. Even if you try your best to achieve all three but don't think ahead quite thoroughly enough, you may not succeed. That's why I urge you to go in with a plan so failing is not an option. Like any other successful endeavor, having a plan greatly increases your chances of success and decreases your risk of failure. Also, your plan will help you stay focused on your goal as you take the many steps along the way.
