4 Malaysians accepted by MIT
At the risk of sounding like an elitist, I was recently informed by Andrew Loh that 4 Malaysians got into MIT for the next academic year, fall of 2007 or Class of 2011. Congrats to Sugasini (BNM scholar), the humble Ashley, the kiasu Tung Shen who's already frantically downloading his courses for the fall semester (are you sure you didn't study in Singapore?) and Wei Jian, the Math genius who's currently studying in Singapore. I'm sure you guys will have a great time at MIT figuring out how to put firetrucks on top of buildings! But seriously, it is indeed rare for 4 Malaysians to get into MIT in one year. Hopefully, these fellas won't have set the bar too high for other Malaysians to get into MIT in the future!
