* Reading MIT's website literature and hearing their presentations, one gets a sense of the qualities they are looking for: 1) Adequate SAT or ACT scores, and GPA.  These show measurements of innate analytical abilities and work ethics.  2) How candidates spend their time.  This shows capacity, individuality, and humanity.  When an individual has high enough scores and GPA and still has time to pursue his or her own interests it means there is still mental capacity after schoolwork; the ability to verbalize interests and passions means that the individual has not been turned into an academic robot. MIT wants their scientists and engineers to study humanity courses so they understand they are serving humanity.

*Never apply gel or any other nail treatment to nails that are damaged or bleeding, and never expose cuts or sores to UV lamps. Always wait for them to fully heal before applying nail treatments.
*Be very gentle when trimming or pushing back your cuticles. Healthy cuticles should be smooth and sensitive like normal skin, not ragged and painful to touch. Only trim away dead white skin, which should be painless like trimming your nails. If you feel pain and/or start bleeding, you have cut too deep or pushed your cuticle too far.
