as far as storytelling goes..... you aren’t writing a piece of published literature...... you also have limited words so you need to be precise.

the application has a portion for ECs

Because the cover letter is only 300 words, every word has to count.

I didn’t coach my LoRs at all...... I know people that were heavily involved, and others that were not

Every part of your application is a chance to showcase who you are. Don’t repeat and make every piece unique about who you are

I didn’t connect to any admissions officers prior to applying, just students/alum. I did talk to faculty about something I was interested in

I’m not sure what scholarships are based on. I am lucky to have my funding taken care of through the military. I did not receive a scholarship through MIT

if you are interested in doing a dual degree in engineering and an MBA..... apply to the LGO program.

LGO also helps with tuition for all admits
