Hey rnin,
Though, I am not from the adcom, but I don't think you need to worry about it. The application center clearly states that 'Engineering Systems' doesn't require a specific engineering degree. Your application should be considered.
However, a word of caution, since ESD has the highest intake, and EECS one of the lowest; you need to frame your story pretty solid. I can see, you've more experience in supply-chain than CS, you need to communicate the same firmly and it would make a lot of good if one of your managers can vouch about your supply-chain knowledge


Program Details-> Engg Programs->ESD-> 'The Leaders for Global Operations Connection: Engineering systems is an appropriate field for LGO students who already have a master's degree in an engineering field or an undergraduate degree in a field such as industrial engineering.' (Since I'm a new member to this forum, I can't post the link.)

I know this statement doesn't really exclude students who've done their undergrad in other fields, but I thought I could use some clarification about this before I decide to invest time in preparing a LGO app with a ESD focus.


Hi, I would suggest to visit the MIT Sloan online application center. Under the section LGO Appliants only, you can find a note about the Engineering Tracks. I think that should be able to clear your doubts. Else, you may want to check with Adcom
Regards,

I was told that the address did not count toward the word total. I submitted last night, now the waiting game.

I submitted last night, good luck to those who already did and those who are doing it today.
At 2500 words, is LGO application the longest?

It was my only app, so would say yes it is the longest. Are you not counting the optional essay in that total? Did anyone not complete the optional essay?

Thanks fsaq for such detailed info... am an international applicant and know its going to be a tough ride for me, submitted my app yesterday :)
Hope I satisfy them with the app. LGO is a long app but its worth every penny of it

Hey all, if you guys have the time, can you update your profile, schools >applicattion submmited to LGO and dates to get a more accurate headcount on the sample size of the gmatclub thread? The bigger our group the better to keep in touch during this process and not miss a detail or a spec of news from the LGO office.

Thanks!

Did you apply through engineering again or through Sloan?

This time I applied through Sloan. The application is far more self explanatory and streamlined than the engineering one and although it hurt to pay 250 USD rather than the 75 USD you pay through engineering, I think the ease of use overall was worth it. Also, I did not have to mail in official sealed transcripts as Sloan lets you self-report them with the condition that should you get an interview, you will have to provide the original sealed ones. But for the purpose of getting the application ready on the last minute (ahem ahem procrastinators like myself also deserve a chance to get in), Sloan is the way to go.

Also the engineering application cuts off your words to the maximum allowed on each essay (at least this was last year). Sloan is a simple PDF conversion that cuts you some slack if you go over 5 or 10 words.

Hello,
I just submitted my application yesterday for LGO!
I'm looking forward to hear how the interview process goes for everybody.
This is my first post on this site, and I've never actually taken the GMAT (just the new GRE) but I like the community here and the information everyone contributes.

That was quite the application, but I felt pretty proud of it by the time I clicked submit last night.

Good luck everyone!

It's great that you have joined us here. I didn't take the GMAT either but this is the only place I found that everyone is in the same boat, waiting to hear from the program. It is nice to have that small bit of support.

I did notice that you are quite young for a B-School applicant. I have an outlying stat myself, my UG GPA was 2.9, and wonder how you addressed this in your application. Did you acknowledge you age (job experience) or did you just leave it alone? For my GPA I did not try to justify it, but instead acknowledged it and discussed how I have shown my ability for an academically rigorous program with other accomplishments (such as my high graduate school GPA).

I’d say the ability to give a more holistic view of myself was the reason I applied through the MBA program. The Engineering school would have taken a look at that GPA and pushed me into the trash can. That could still happen with the MBA school, but I figured I had a better shot this way.
