I don't see why they wouldn't. Maybe you should ask Preetha personally.
but it won't carry any merit
You don't know that for sure. OS already has connections with MIT.
It is connected with MIT OCW, not the university as a whole
I suppose you know all of Preetha's colleagues.
I think you're underestimating the amount of pull Preetha has. You should double-check to see who is helping fund this site.
Also remember that more than one person can give a recommendation. There are several admin out there who probably wouldn't mind backing Parth. And they have pretty good credentials.
If you think MIT don't know who or what OS is, you're mistaken.
nope, I am pretty sure MIT admission office wouldn't even know of this site
Wow bro, you're such a negative thinker. You should talk to somebody about that.
plus getting recommendation from a site wouldn't give you much of an advantages. Much better he gets it from his school and teacher
And of course he will...
Is "no, nope, and don't" your response to every inquiry?
to ones such as yours, yes
OMG bro...stop it...
stop what? utilizing logic?
No disrespect bro, but you come off as a mad hater.
he is better off getting recommendation from his own school/teacher which is based on both common sense and what MIT itself says http://mitadmissions.org/apply/freshman/recommendations Recommendation from this site wouldn't help is all I am saying; Just a friendly advice to him; Still do not understand why you feel the need to obtrude
Asking for a reference from OPENSTUDY is like asking for a reference from OPENCOURSEWARE. A reference is a type of document that involves someone who knows your background on a work or academic level, and also a personal level. If references were that easy, especially asking for it for a reputable school, then I believe everyone would do it. This has nothing to do with negativity or what not.
Haha, thanks for the help :-)
Parth, I will write you a letter for MIT! It will be from me, as CEO of OpenStudy.
well im a first year grad student at harvard , studying computer science 1. MIT does know about this FYI and admission departement has nothing to do with OS. 2. Indeed a letter of recommendation from preetha CAN put a heavy weight on resume and profile docs but CANNOT guarantee admission, it is highly competitive. 3. it depends on your academic background and SAT score+ personal interview. 4. after this you if you get through, then HAHAHAHAHAHA be ready to work your A off and forget the word 'sleep' there is no such word and be ready to face, words like frustration , aggravation and annoyed. 5. this is all hope that helps you out @parthkohli ..good luck
*department **if you sorry for mistakes imma kinda sleepy
