Vinny, firstly, congratulations on getting in. But secondly, don't say "if I can get in with a 1200 on my sats u can all get in", because it's not true. Normally, a 1200 will not get into MIT. However, you've clearly shown some extraordinary talent in other areas, most specifically in the maths and sciences. Having won at ISEF, RSI, etc. are definitely what got you in, not your score. So not "all of us can get in" because obviously we're not all ISEF winners.

clearly vinny isn't the best at one of the most important aspects of being a great student: english.

Focus less on spanish and more on english now that you're in. and looks like you need to improve your math skills!

hey, when u say "winner", which level did u win? I was at ISEF and got 4th but i cannt really consider myself a "winner". Besides, there were 3 ppl wit the chairman awards and like 5 first places in each catagory...

but CONGRADS! I wish i could've gone to IMO, i screwed up on the CMO (Canadian math olympiad) and APMO =(

R u going to IMO this year? i might make it *hopes*

Nice man! Congrats ,but dude... a 400?!?! Im surprised you were able to write the paragraph communicating your acceptance to us. Lol. nah im kidding, Good luck and tear it up at MIT!

are you kidding? I mean really RSI is pretty much a free ride to MIT. You shouldn't be suprised. Heck you got into RSI after all, far more selective than any college in the world (and harder than the NBA as a certain chem teacher says). Congrats!
