Hello all. First time posting. Attending January 28 interview and bowling (in Cambridge?!) on January 29. Thrilled for the invite.

Education: Physics/Math from large state university
Work: 3 years in finance, specifically a technical subset of energy trading
Currently: Traveling past 6 months, flying into Boston specifically for LGO interview. I am a US Citizen but asked to interview from Asia - was told I had to come in to MIT.
LGO Interest: ESD Energy/Sustainability with focus on development and deployment of large scale clean tech

Questions:
1) Does anyone have specific recommendations on where to live. I'd like to be within walking distance or easy T distance of class. Should I be looking for managed properties or a sublease?

2) Are the "first round" invitees the ones they really want and thus we have a better shot of admission?

3) I'm curious about the "merit scholarships to outstanding applicants" mentioned on the Financial Information LGO page. Does receipt of one of those depend upon the interview more than anything else, or is it about objective numbers/specific interests of applicant. How many students receive extra funding?


With regards to your second point -

Looking through this thread, it looks like the majority (70 to 80%?) of applicants received an interview invite, not counting international applicants who usually have a different timeline. According to the statistics, apparently nearly 100 applicants come by for interviewfest, and let's add 10-20 who are invited after. Then, is the interview invite really that selective? Or are GMATclubbers just more highly qualified than the rest? 8-)

Hi all,

There seems to be a consensus on the thread that very few (if any) international applicants are invited to interview in the first call. Does anyone have an idea of when interviews are extended to international applicants?

Many thanks,
Ed

Check the link above, it is the thread for the LGO applicants who started in June 2010. Click on the 4th page of the thread and in there, you will see that there was a wave of invitations for International Applicants sent out on the 21st of January. If this holds true, then this friday or this upcomming monday, some international invites could be extended.

Also, look through the thread (URL above) for username "LGOgirl." She is an international student and got an invite for interview on the first wave with most of the applicants. She got it through the mail. I assume that there might have been more international applicants who got invited to interviewfest on the first wave, but I was also told that most international applicants admitted did not go to Interviewfest (Most meaning 4 out of 5).

Because of this, I strongly believe that most international admits do not go to Interviewfest. Also, I am speculating too much about the dates. This year seems to be different than the past two or three and thus, a wave of invites comming this friday or monday may not happen. They will come later.

@ mainhoon: I see that you are Ph.D. I also have Ph.D. and felt very good about my LGO application, however, no invite. I am PR of USA. Do you think Ph.D. is hurting our chances of doing MBA?
I have heard that many time admission committee is wondering if people like us like to stay as student forever!

Any current student has any comments on it.

Thanks.

Hi

Although there are no Ph.Ds in this year's class, we have had LGO with Ph.Ds so don't give up hope.

Good luck

1) There is a Marriott right on top of the Kendall Square T-station across the street from MIT Sloan. You can call them and see if there is a special rate if you stay for the weekend.
2) I have no idea, sorry.
3) Again I have no idea but I would guess they look at your overall application. There are several different merit scholarships for the LGO class, academic scholarships are definitely among them. You might also receive scholarships from Sloan as well. I don't know exactly how many LGOs got scholarships (around 5?). I did not get one :)

Hi

If you go through LGO partner company recruiting, they will mostly recruit for OP/SC management roles and leadership development programs.

But you will have plenty of opportunities in product management going through the Sloan side of recruiting (for example, some LGO classmates of mine are interested in product management for companies like Google and Microsoft, both of which recruit at Sloan)

Thanks JZD for your reply.

Can you elaborate a bit on the Product Management career post LGO? I saw that career track on the LGO website along with the Supply Chain Management and Operations Management.

Which partner companies recruit for product management role?
How many LGO fellows opt for product management career?

Thanks!

Un/fortunately, I too have a PhD and thought the same. Interestingly, I got the interview invitation a few days after the mass invite. I tried explaining in my application why I need LGO after a PhD.
I have also heard that not many PhDs are there in LGO classes, one here and one there.

Yeap, lets hope we hear something next week. I think that there are many internationals in this thread and this is a good thing since at least ,for sure, one of us will hear something and let the others know. It seems too odd too think that lots of invites would have been sent to internationals and not one of them be one who visits this thread. I dont think any international may have heard anything yet.

LGO website says that "Candidates applying to LGO through the MIT Sloan School of Management will be considered for the standard MBA program at MIT Sloan School of Management in the event they are not accepted into the LGO program".

Does anyone know the statistics on how many people get considered for Sloan and how many get admitted?
Also, are they considered for Sloan R2 or R3?

Thank you very much.

I dont think they make that kind of data available, but per the LGO website in the FAQ section:


I am planning to apply to LGO through MIT Sloan School of Management. If I submit my materials in time for MIT Sloan School of Management's Round I deadline, will I receive notification (regarding MIT Sloan School of Management's decision) from the MBA program along with the other MIT Sloan School of Management Round I applicants?
No. LGO applicants will receive a decision on the MBA Round II decision date regardless of how early the application was submitted. There is no advantage to submitting an LGO application to MIT Sloan School of Management prior to the designated LGO deadline (other than finishing your application early).
