So I live in India and currently, I am in the 11th non-medical stream and I want to get into MIT. And Here are some things that I have learned so far about getting into it -
First of all I am a decent student and to put that in perspective I gave the Practise SAT test by Khan
Academy and without preparing, I was able to score 1400.
I know that to get into MIT you need to have some good extracurriculars as well and for that, I have prepared the following stuff to complete:-
(I am very much into learning how computers work)
-> So I have learned the basics of ethical hacking(I have a certificate of it).
-> I know Python (I will say Intermediate level).
-> I am learning web dev to make my own portfolio website.
(All the things above I will do before the end of November)
-> then I am planning to make a forum like website.
-> And then Get my hands-on machine learning.
-> For ML I will first make some simple projects like recommendation system etc.
(all the things above I will do before April-may 2021)
-> Then a small self-driving car project
Please tell me if these will count or not as I am very serious about it.
Also note that in the last project I may have one of my friend to do it with me as a team
and please share some more ideas about what can I do to ensure my admission
