I got accepted EA to MIT with below average numbers and I am asian male, so there's much hope for everyone.

asianmale, if i were you i'd visit vegas this christmas... luck seems to be on your side, and you obviously did very well in this whole college admissions gamble!

Here's some pseudocode for the program I found out MIT uses to determine EA admissions. If there is sufficient interest I will actually code it in C++ and make both the source and binaries available.

generate random number between 1 and 5
if random number=5
send out admitted letter
else send out deferral letter

Code it and try it if you're still waiting for a letter. If any variables change run it again. You may be surprised.
