Thanks for the feedback, Phear. I'm still in disbelief that MIT and Columbia don't interview their students before making their final admissions decisions. I guess that's subject to change though. If I learn of any changes to the application processes at any of the Top 4, I'll make sure to post. I encourage others to do the same.
I look forward to getting the play-by-play on MIT as you lay the smack down on Cambridge this year.
Best of luck,
