This form is written on behalf of the person named above who is applying to MIT as a transfer student. We are obliged under the Family Educational Rights and Privacy Act (Buckley Amendment) to make your comments available to the student if she/he enrolls at MIT and has not signed the waiver above. We would appreciate your honest assessment of the applicant’s intellectual ability, self-confidence, originality, and willingness to accept challenge and responsibility. If the student has unique qualities or characteristics, please bring those to our attention. Anecdotal illustrations are often helpful in our evaluation of the applicants. The committee on admissions is attempting to distinguish the very best applicants (on a variety of criteria) and asks you to keep in mind two questions: As the student’s professor, how would you describe the applicant’s academic abilities to one of your colleagues? What will the student bring with her or him to the greater community of MIT? Your acquaintance with the applicant: know only through records

If you find this form too restricting for your comments, please feel free to attach a separate sheet or write a letter. Thank you for your contribution to our evaluation process. We very much appreciate the time and energy you put into writing. If you have any questions about this form, please feel free to write or call our office.
