Google is your friend:
MIT Admissions Statistics: Freshman Applications: 15,661; Freshman Admits: 1,675; Percentage Admitted: 10.7%
"Standardized tests are required for any freshman application to MIT. While your scores are only one component of your application, they are important, and you should make sure you're prepared for the testing process."
The freshman application consists of the following components (click for related instructions and tips):
Part 1: Biographical Information Form - Part 2: Essays, Activities, and Tests > Form - Self-reported Coursework Form - Interview - Standardized Tests - Teacher Evaluation Forms - Secondary School Report Form - Midyear Report - Financial Aid Materials - Contacting A Coach - Submitting A Music Or Art Portfolio
You do all of that and then you wait to see where you stack up with all the other people applying to MIT.
