Tomorrow begins March. Let's see if it starts tomorrow, or towards the end of the week!

Good luck to all R2s!


Does anyone else think Sloan decided to do away with Round 2 this year and just forgot to tell everyone?

I think it feels exactly like R2 last year in terms of timing. I know how you guys feel, but they're not behind schedule yet.

So when should we start talking about them getting behind?

Now I'm imagining a scene similar to the one in Boiler Room where phones ring simultaneously in an empty building: GMATClubbers have a mad phone marathon to an unoccupied AdCom office for R2 results. Ok, I think I had too much caffeine this morning!

All I'm saying is they didn't go out until around now last year. I bet they go out this week. I will be pretty surprised if they don't.

Remember, they have committed to an April 5th decision deadline. The adcom needs to fly around the world and interview everyone themselves. Because of this, they probably like to have a pretty good idea of where each applicant stands prior to sending out invites to limit the work load. (They made it harder on themselves by deferring so many people to R2, not that I'm complaining). Still, after they finish traveling and interviewing, they still need to reconvene and make decisions. They can't wait much longer, so expect something soon.

Unless they decided to interview far fewer people for R2 this year! :(
What if the R1 pool filled out a greater part of the class?

I can't see what benefit MIT gets from filling a large portion of the class in R1 without even looking at R2. Seems like they would get a failing grade from their strategy professors if they did that.

I think you can relax. There's no sense in worrying about things that are unlikely and illogical simply because they are possible.

Congrats!

Are you able to see the hub cities? If so, do you mind sharing what they are?

If the R1 pattern holds, I guess a couple more days of waiting for us CA folks


What about Texas? Do people from Texas even get accepted to MIT?

Please share if anyone remembers the pattern from last year.

I am in NY and am still "Complete and being evaluated" status. I will probably give Sloan one more day before I get on to my back up plan of crying like a little girl.

I don't think time-zone is necessarily what you want to be looking at. It's speculation, but it appears as though the adcom sends invites out in batches by hub city. If the Chicago people get to interview in Chicago and the Dallas people get to interview somewhere other than Chicago, then you shouldn't assume the invites will go out at the same time.

Hi All- In other discussions, I saw a few posts about recommenders receiving a thank you email from Mr. Garcia. By chance, those who have received interview invites, did your recommenders receive that thank you email? I believe my recommenders didn't receive it... wonder if that was a gauge on your interview candidacy...

Most of us got it and it has nothing to do to anything, just random autoreply (my guess somewhat based on the title of the person writting the email).

Hmmm... Hopefully you're right! All in all, it really seems quiet in terms of the NY interview invites. Does anyone have any insight as to whether MIT is releasing these invites bit by bit or doing a blitz like HBS? People from NYC who have received interviews, do you mind sharing the time stamp on your invite email?
