For the '12s
At approximately 11:50 EST MIT admitted its first batch of freshmen for next year.
A year ago I was the kid who checked online, couldn't get past the first line of my acceptance for 2 hours, and who proudly paraded MIT gear for the next several weeks. I also became absolutely obsessed with EVERYTHING MIT because it was then official, MIT would be my school and I had to learn everything I could about it!
So, today, roughly 300 new freshmen are faced with the same situation. MIT is your school now! Years of tradition, quarks, and awesomeness are now yours so soak up as much as you can! Read the admissions blogs, read the student blogs, read the websites for the various dorms, read about traditions, just read a ton! I've included a bunch of links to check out, they're all really useful.
