FEE Results have been posted. Jesus, they actually read them in-depth and wrote specific criticisms and analysis of our pieces. I woulda spent a little longer on them if I had known...at least I passed =)

They should just have posted pass or fail. I think I passed but I am not sure. It says, "CI-H/CI-HW Required, You may take any CI-H or CI-HW subject during your first year at MIT."

Tbone -- that's what I recieved too. I think it means you can take any Hass-D that is communication intensive. That's what I did anyway... we'll have to see what happens. That will be fun explaining to my counselor if I screw up.

omg yeah, my heart like skipped a series of beats. i think it means we passed b/c it's equivalent to getting a 5 on the ap english lit or comp, which would exempt us from it, so we passed (but holy crap, talk about insensitive communication)

Does passing the FEE mean we are competent to write for the HASS classes? Or should we do CI-HW instead of CI-H?

Wow, you guys got comments? What kind of stuff did the scorers write?

Non-standardization of grading is great.

So here's the deal. "Pass", like you thought, is CI-H/CI-HW Required (I was worried too when I saw it ^_^ ). That means you're good enough, Tbone, to take any CI class you want, including a HASS-D course. The next level after that is CI-HW Required, meaning you have to take a course focused specifically on writing. "Fail" is a somewhat harsh term so, if you don't receive either of the above two, it means that MIT treats you as a speaker of another language and you have to take an English for Non-Natives class.
