Oh, blast. MIT application incomplete.

They need a paper copy of my transcript. Also, recommendation letters from my teachers haven't reached them yet.

I've probably deep-sixed my chances of going to MIT next year, as I think I come across as an irresponsible person who can't keep track of deadlines and who will thus be perpetually late for other requirements. And to think I maintain a personal information manager! ;)

It's true, though. I didn't give this application as much care as I should've. Something to learn from, I guess.
