MIT has me on tenterhooks... i had thought their would be more reports this morning but nothing so far...
if it is anything like RD 2 last year, then it should be over in 3 days from the first invite....(first interviews on 3rd and ding day on 6th)
if it is anything like rd 1 this year... then the invites could be staggered over 10 days...

I guess that's good... If they were like HBS and had sent them all yesterday, then it would have been a done deal I guess.

Add me to the rollcall for R2 MIT Sloan. I am in New Jersey. Does that count as NYC?

Speculating based on what I've observed on these boards, they all go out within an hour. Again, speculating, they probably sent out 75+% of NYC invites yesterday between 4-5pm. Sorry. (I've been through it twice already with MIT. I know how it feels.)

I just spoke to MIT Admissions. They told me that yesterday was their first batch of invites to NYC. Since NY has a large applicant pool, she said invites will trickle out over the next 2 days ...

She also said some international invites were out ... But the next week or so NY / Boston / Chicago / CA will be out. There's still hope for the next 7-8 days I guess


Good to know! Looks like my prediction wasn't far off other than the timezone assumption regarding 3/11. I'm excited! :D

Any speculations on southeast (Georgia/Florida) interview invites for R2 applicants. I would assume that Atlanta is one of the hub cities.

Second that. I'm in Washington, DC but was expecting that, if I got invited, I would go to Cambridge to interview. The other two schools I've interviewed at, Darden and Tuck, are mandatory on campus interviews I believe, so I don't have any experience with the "hub city" interview process.

I got the news that I am dinged through my wife - she was a MIT grad (not Sloan) and had written a letter of support to Rod. She got a personal e-mail from Rod informing her of the bad news. He also mentioned that I will be officially notified this Friday.

Bummed but glad that I at least have one admit. Good luck to everyone else.

Sorry to hear anandnesan. Perhaps that means ding day for R2 is Friday?

Ding day R2 last year was Friday some time between 5-7 pm. Ding/Deferral day R1 was a Friday around 5:30 pm or so.

So I guess, for us New Yorkers, if we haven't received an invite by now, most likely, we're getting dinged on Friday?

Does this mean if we don't receive an invitation by tomorrow, it's either a ding or WL on Friday? Fun. Did anyone receive an invite today? Any Canadians?

No. Some people don't hear on the mid-decision day. I think all those people get invites, but I'm not positive.

WL will probably come after "ding day." I was deferred in R1 without interview and I learned about it after the "ding day."

phew... I don't know why, but for some reason I feel slightly relieved. I think I'm starting to get used to waiting and not hearing from these schools.

yah. i got the news yesterday that i am dinged through a good friend of mine (Sloan grad) that wrote a letter of support to Rod as well. Rod did not mention a time, but said that all he could relay was that applications were extremely competitive this year (12 apps for 1 spot) and that truly only stanford would be comparable.

it was extremely disappointing considering that i felt my application essays were rock strong (i had two sloan graduates review them excessively and then send an LOS after submission, they were both really sure i would at least get an interview). plus i had been 2 for 2 for those schools where i had this opinion so it was also a bit disconcerting as it reminded me i have no offers from any school yet and despite interviews or what i think, its still a possibility i get dinged everywhere.

i do not mean to be dramatic for those of you who have not received invites from any schools, but for me it is still indeed a sobering thot. anyway. good luck to those who receive MIT interviews. youve earned it in a banner year. cheers


To those that have indirectly heard from Rod Garcia:

What is a letter of support? Do you mean a letter of recommendation or a supplemental/personal letter to Garcia? If it is the former, does every MIT alum who wrote a letter get such a response from Rod Garcia?

Am I the only one that's a little shocked to hear that MIT releases admissions decisions to third parties before it notifies the applicant?

As if it's not bad enough to hear from the school you've been denied, but to hear it unofficially from a friend first would be terrible.
