MIT undergraduate admission for international students is fiercely competitive. They only admit about 5% of international applicants every year and they cap their international student admissions at less than 150 per year. To get in you need to have a stellar academic record and standardized test scores, but you can bet that most of your competition will have these. To be a stand out candidate you should be able to show dedication and achievement in your desired field of study: projects, awards, extracurricular activities...anything that can indicate you go above and beyond what's just required of you in your regular coursework can help. For more information on international admissions at MIT (including coursework and tests) visit their international applicant page:
