Cultural Background and Identity

At MIT, we use a holistic admissions process which entails understanding as much about you as we possibly can, and the context in which you have been shaped, both as a person and as a student. Because simply checking a box cannot fully describe a person, we are providing this opportunity for you to tell us something about what your cultural background and identity mean to you.
