    Hi Everyone!

    I’m wondering how one would go about looking at comments posted on this page? Am I the first one, or is there a way we can make this “browse-able”?

    ANNOUNCEMENT!

    Small changes to Course 2/2-OE and 2-A for this coming Fall:

    Course 2/2-OE

    2.086 is now a Sophomore year subject

    2.003 will have 2.086 as a co-requisite

    2.005 will have 2.086 as a prerequisite

    Course 2-A

    The 2.090 (6 units) + 2.087 (12 units) requirement will be replaced by 2.087 (as a 6 unit subject) + 2.086 (12 units). 2.090 and 2.088 will no longer be offered (both were classes that meet with 2.086). This is exactly the same set of classes/topics and 2.090 + 2.087, but without the half term overlaps with 2.086 that caused unnecessary confusion abotu the requirement.

    Starting in Fall 2013, students can take either 18.03 or 2.087 (to learn ODEs), plus 2.086 to fulfill the engineering mathematics requirement.

    Dear Peer Advisors,

    I just declared 2A t! My immediate question is what CI-H’s that are NOT writing heavy do you guys recommend? Engaging physical activities like RAMBAX(drum lesson) and Intro to Acting have been recommended .I really want to improve my public speaking skills.

  • chrisk14

    Well, this isn’t a public speaking one, but 21W.789 (Mobile App Development) is a CI-H with really lenient writing requirements. Every CI-H has the required 20 pages, but this class focuses far more on Android app development and while the papers are important, they are very easy to write.

    Congrats on declaring 2A! If you’re trying to shake off the nervousness of speaking in public, I’ve heard intro to acting is perfect! However, if you want to improve your argumentative speech skills, I would really suggest Rhetoric (21W.747). It does have some writing, but it’s hard for me to see how one could learn how to speak well in public without learning a little bit on how to write well for public speaking, right? I just took it last fall and got A TON out of it. Check it out! http://student.mit.edu/catalog/m21Wa.html#21W.747

    How many times can an international transfer student possibly file for admission?

  • Laurenz

    Will my application be reviewed if i just have a term each for calculus, physics, biology, and chemistry?

  • Guangtao (Taotao) Zhang

    I don’t think there is a limit on how many times you are apply, I am not so familiar with the admission requirements for international student, more specific questions should be directed to the admission office, you are look on their website here: http://mitadmissions.org/apply

    Sincerely,
    Taotao

    INTERPRETATION – ASME SECTION II PART C – SFA-5.23 – TABLE 6

    Please I need some help!!!

    In the phrase:

    Current type required for test: Alternating current (AC) or direct current (DC) either polarity.

    Meaning that the current type for test can be:

    1 – Alternating current or direct current polarity negative or positive (one or other polarity is required)

    2 – Alternating current or direct current polarity negative and positive (both polarity is required)
