1,438 applicants out of roughly 20,000 have been admitted to the Class of 2021 as of Pi Day. Admittees originate from over 60 countries. Around 500 students were waitlisted.
MIT held a 24-hour fundraiser on Pi Day, ultimately raising $1.3 million from donations. The funds will go towards MIT’s efforts in “innovation, education, and research,” CEO of MIT’s Alumni Association Judy Cole wrote in an email to the MIT community.
