so if we do not receive a call this weekend, it is a DING? Might as well not read the letter when it comes?

And on the other note, if we do not get in LGO - what is going on with the regular R2 at Sloan? Do we just sit and wait? Will the decision for us come sooner from SLOAN than for the other applicants?

People who get in get phone calls on a weekend? Wow, that's nice. I guess it's too late to expect an interview...LOL

I just got a call from Don Rosenfield, he begged me to come into the program. He also asked for my address so he could send some chocolates and flowers. If he wants me that bad in LGO he will need to try harder... perhaps calling me in for an interview would suffice.

I hope that if I miraculously get in, Don calls me on Friday. I leave the country for 3 weeks on Friday night...

So someone saw that calls have started on Friday in previous years?

See last year's forum - mit-lgo-fellow-applicant-for-lgo-program-starting-in-88783-120.html

jzd got a call Friday night. However, it does appear though that most of the calls to the students came later. Sorry If I freaked everyone out with the info...

Seems like it. I'm not holding my breath.

GTGal, did you go to Georgia Tech?

Hi I did get called on Friday night last year...seemed just like yesterday huh :)

There were at least 1 other who also got called on Friday night. I know a couple of the internationals did not get called "this" weekend but received a package from the LGO on Tuesday I think.

I would not be directly involved with the open house at the end of the month but please reach out to me anyway if you have any questions.

Good luck to everyone

Does anyone know some statistics about how many of the international applicants who have been interviewed are offered admission? I have heard about 50% rate, but for all students. Thanks

Yes. Interviewed on the phone last week and waiting anxiously to hear from the admissions. I'm kind of new here, and found that reading all the posts in this forum makes me go crazy so I have decided not to log in anymore, but...
Do you know whether their decision will be delivered on Monday or only be mailed then? One more question - do you know whether LGO waitlists candidates?
Thanks for the quick response!
What about you? Have you been interviewed? Are you an international applicant?

jzd - Were you one of the extra special people to get an additional scholarship or do you think he was just going in alphabetic order?

From the source directly: there are 56 admissions offers this year.

Now this is speculation: ~100 people interviewed on Interviewfest, +20 or so that interviewed in the past couple of weeks in one way or another?

Best of luck!
