At the same time, don't give up hope of getting into MIT if you don't have a 4.0 and a 2400 on the SAT. The Massachusetts Institute of Technology has holistic admissions, and they are looking for students who bring to campus more than good grades and test scores. Students who have some kind of remarkable talent or have a compelling story to tell will get a close look even if grades and test scores aren't quite up to the ideal. That said, chances of acceptance are remarkably slim if your GPA isn't in the "A" range and your SAT is below 1800.
