The Early Action results for MIT and Yale came out last night. I followed some of the results from posters on the College Confidential discussion forum. If you're pondering applying to either of these two (or other Ivy or "elite") schools, you should take a look at the profiles of these applicants and their respective outcomes. Here's the Yale forum and here's the MIT forum. Be prepared to adjust your thinking.
