MIT Received 18084 Applications to Class of 2016

MIT, based in Cambridge, cut its direct marketing to potential applicants by about 40 percent to eliminate students who weren't likely to be admitted based on their PSAT score, said Stuart Schmill, dean of admissions. MIT sought a smaller "but highly appropriate pool," he said. The school, which doesn't accept the Common Application, received 18,084 applications for this year. Last year it admitted less than 10 percent of applicants.
