Do we have a chance to get into MIT as an international student without participating in any international olympiads?
I agree! The issue with top US colleges and international students is that unless you are prepared to pay for it and don't stand out as an applicant your chances are very low. It doesn't mean you shouldn't apply but you better have plenty of other options in your country or elsewhere
Okay... Thank you
Its also worth mentioning that not all international olympiads are created equal. I'd rather qualify for the IMO than place highly in the IOI, for example.

thats true IMO and IPhO typically are the top ones
