    you’re not the only one.

    I could be wrong here, but if you’re spelling the name Perl wrong, you probably can’t program in it. Besides, you should look at low-level programming languages(or at least one with low-level capabilities like C++) if you’re so talented. I’m personally more impressed by a 13-year-old programming in C than one who knows HTML.

    Dude, you can’t be sure about getting in. I say you should work on your application. If you nail it, then you’re definitely in. Search their website, read the student blogs, try to contact a student IN MIT so they can guide you. Good luck :)

    If you look at his videos it’s mostly just him screwing around nothing really viable. He also types really immature things in his videos. If they look up any of his things, they’re going to be disappointed.

    With a 3.8 GPA, 179 total PSAT score: 64 in critical reading, 61 in mathematics, and 54 in writing skills, internship in social media, founder of an awareness organization and like 5 volunteering jobs in court, hospital, park, library, and summer camp for the disabled, is it a realistic dream to want to go to MIT?

    Not to be a dick, but my brother codes java and he’s 12. Maybe going to MIT early isn’t the best idea. Go to high school and have some fun. But then again what do I know, maybe you truly are a prodigy.

  7. FreestylePortLive says:

    Adobe Dreamweaver is a great option too

    2. So you’re saying its better to stay inside and do nothing at all? AND You do realize that things like American idol have critics, right?

  9. SomeSwissBody says:

    1. I’m pretty sure not all girls are like that.

    yeah you can used python and django to build a website but im not an expert i heard its like front end of the website is html and back end of the website is python

    you have to get top grades in every subject and a recomendation from a “respected” person

    I was expecting something more difficult from MIT (Even if it is an intro class)…….
