Well, the kids I know who got into MIT were really good at math – Math Camp, USAMO, NYC math team…and did Intel STS, and 800 on SAT II Math level II is pretty standard for kids there. I’m sure there’s other ways to get in than being good in just math, though you might want to go compete in some science/math/engineering related competitions to be safe.

You need higher math scores. There will not be many people who get into MIT with lower than a 700 in Math SAT, and you really should be up at 750 or above. With your AC’s equally low, that’s not good. So try to pull those up, a lot. You should also try to demonstrate a love for math and science. What that means is hard to say. But you will be competing for spots with people who have college courses or even published research papers in math and science. So if you can get involved deeply in a math or science activity (research is the best) or take some college classes, that will really help you. But, to be honest, looking over your resume, you don’t look like the typical MIT student. I don’t mean that in a bad way. It just seems like your interest don’t really align with MIT’s strengths. It makes me wonder why you even want to go to MIT. I would guess there are schools that you would be far happier at. But hey, that’s just my 2 cents. I could be way off!

Anyways, good luck! I hope you find the right school for you.
