There are a few old threads on HSBaseball Web that say MIT doesn't offer any admissions lift for athletes--not even a pre-read. Is that correct as of 2019? I understand that they might say "we don't lower our standards for any applicant." But do they really expect would-be baseball players to apply ED without any prior indication that they will be accepted?
My son hasn't contacted MIT, but is considering it. If they are going to ask him to forego applying ED at another school with a pre-read, but offer no pre-read of their own, then I think he will not be interested. Great school, but that's a fairly big risk in today's admissions world.
