Just submitted -- beat the deadline by just over an hour.

Did anybody see a way to get a pdf copy of your submitted app? I had the opportunity just before I put my CC# in but I didn't take it and now I don't see it as an option anywhere.

Sorry ... I'm a pack rat.


No problem - Just login at https://app.applyyourself.com/?id=mit-mba --> Click on the Print button at the bottom of the column to the left (just below 'Check Your Application') --> Choose HTML or PDF.

I had deferred my admit, and am matriculating at MIT Sloan in Fall 09. Looking forward to a big GMAT Club group.

Hi

I am an R1 applicant to Sloan. guess the invites haven't started as yet. Last year the invites started exactly the same time.. however only invites for newyork were given out first. International invites came out just before christmas. Not sure if they would be following the same trend this year.

103-t50531?sk=t&sd=a&hilit=MIT+sloan+2008&start=260

Well I think today they would be finalizing their first batch of interviews and I am sure some of us would receive an invite today. Lets see if my application was good enough to put their 'MIT doesnt like Indians from India' myth away

Good luck folks.

Hey guys, are you having with the "thought, felt and said" parts of the essay?

I just can't seem to get much substance on these topics. Eg. when I executed a plan, I thought about what needed to be done, what issues I might encounter and how I was going to resolve them. I felt at times anxious, frustrated, and eventually, relieved when it was all done. I said to my fellow workers "let's do X and Y". But is this even good material? And are these mundane details what MIT really wants to read about?

Hey guys,

I felt it very difficult to constrain my cover letter within 500 words since I want to write a lot of things in it. Like my achievement, why mba why mit, my motivation, long term and short term goal, and also an example how I make impact.

So it's very hard to put all these things in 500 words. Does anyone have any suggestion?

To meet the "describe your accomplishments" prompt, I briefly mentioned a few of the things that are covered in my other essays. But as for the "example of how you had an impact on a person or group," I would use something that's not covered in the other essays. I think it's a chance to cover something new and present more information.

I mention a few things in the cover letter but don't go too much into detail - I saved that for the other essays. For instance, I mentioned I participate in activity X, and in one of the essays, go into detail on how I defended my idea in X.

Interestingly, just looked at the MIT website...there's a new (at least to me) interview guide posted: http://mitsloan.mit.edu/mba/admissions/MITSloan_interview_guide.pdf

And they say:

Quote:
Interviews
Interviews are by invitation only. Our goal is to interview all candidates accepted into the program. An invitation to interview thus signals that your application has reached an advanced stage of consideration, but does not guarantee admission. Candidates will be notified of interviews by e-mail until the decision deadline.

Interviews will be conducted at MIT Sloan and in several key cities around the globe. Please indicate on the application the preferred location of your interview; in some cases, we may conduct interviews by telephone.



So if the deadline for R1 is 2/2 - does that mean interviews will be released until then?
that's a looong wait..

first of all congrats to those that received invites. I am an international applicant but located in the Boston Area, so I am not sure how that works, although I am not sure MIT is sending the interviews by location this time. I am just wondering, does the application status change online from submitted to invited to interview or smtg?

I wonder if MIT applicants are just less active on the boards. I personally know 2 people with invites out of the 4 people I know that applied. Yet there are only ~4 reported on BW, here, and admissions411. Something seems odd.


There seems to be an indication that invites are being released geographically. If your friends are in Boston, NYC or DC, then that might explain it.

I had my interview a while ago- the interviewer was adcom and took maybe 3-4 pages of notes. They had studied my application pretty thoroughly and knew my stories well. I knew going in beforehand that MIT had a reputation of wanting to hear stories that weren't in your app- however my interviewer had quite a few questions about one of my accomplishments, and we delved into that for the majority of the discussion. The rest of the time was spent on generic questions:

Tell me about a time when you were on a team
Tell me about a time when you had to convince people to do an idea
Tell me about a time when you had an idea shot down

MIT was one of the most friendly interviews I had...extremely open, engaging, and really wanted to know "you". It's kind of annoying in my opinion that the interview happens wayyy after results for some schools come out, I myself have already been way out of the "interview/MBA" mindset for months now and was pretty unprepared for the interview. I guess this way they ensure that they only get the people who are die hard Sloanies, I myself loved the school but still could not bring myself to do the had core prep that I did for my other interviews. Hope this helps some of you interviewing for R1 and the rest of you in R2.

Had an interview today... Didn't go so hot - I guess I was overwhelmed with nervousness! And the interviewer forgot to ask for my official transcript. I definitely needed some cookie-therapy afterwards...

The interviewer was cordial and definitely wanted to know more about specific things I'd mentioned in my apps and on my resume.

Anyway, here are the questions I remember:
Walk me through your resume
Tell me about something recent at work that you're proud of
Tell me about a piece of feedback you received from a supervisor and how it changed you
Why MBA
Why Sloan
What do you wish you'd been asked
What do you do outside of work


Best of luck to everyone!


I'm sure you did fine, no worries. I find that those who claim they had a great interview always seem to be explaining away a rejection. And the rest of us have just average interviews. :)

Uh, you guys sure MIT just hasn't gotten around to taking this past year's essay page down? These are exactly the same questions I answered last October. And look at this note under the "self-reported transcripts" heading:

"LFM does not accept self-reported transcripts. LFM applicants should instead mail transcripts by December 17, 2007"
