Any thoughts about whether applying to the E&I will help or hurt one's chances? It is possible to get into Sloan having been rejected by the E&I program, right?

I thought so. I tried calling them just now but got routed right to voicemail.

Applying to the E&I program was bit of a last-minute decision but I feel that it's the right one given my whole reason for going to B-school!

Sure of this? I had a problem with my second recommender. I added a 3rd recommender. She got the mail, and submitted the reco today. I have even received confirmation mail from Sloan. Then I sent a mail to second recommender saying that she need not worry about the reco.

We can't remove the recommender once we enter the details, but we can add recommenders.

Done. Submitted it last night.

Thankfully, I had bugged my recommenders way in advance to get their recos in (set them up with an internal deadline, so that they worked towards that and not the MIT Sloan date). So my recos were in about 20 days ago!

This was my last app. Hopefully, wouldn't have to redo any of this again... like ever!

I realized that internal deadlines are a must, even for very disciplined people. Give even months, recommenders fill in only on the last day.

They admit you before reviewing for E&I...so you can get in but not get into E&I. However, some students I talked to said they are very into the E&I and actually ask people after they are accepted to apply for it. Something tells me if you get in them you will basically be a shoe in for E&I. They want 50 people for the program this year but it doesnt hurt or help your chances according to the adcoms.

Let me check once again... I couldn't find on the system.

On the make things worse, I had a physical examination and the physician told me my blood pressure is high: I told today everything but my patience is high :lol:

Did you guys single or double-space your essays? I can't find instructions either way for Sloan. My cover letter is single spaced as that's business standard, but the essays?

Well have officially submitted. I used 1.5 spacing for all my essays (even cover letter), it makes the much easier to read, which is probably appreciated by reviewers after reading hundreds of essays. All mine except my cover letter fit on one page.

My boss feels so bad about screwing up the time that he actually is leaving to go home so he can submit his rec. I gave him all the rec forms 3 months ago and he had them done just never bothered to submit them.

Only Tuck left for R1. Then a few weeks of relaxing before getting R2 ones ready just incase. All I want is one success and then I can go into total mind melt mode.

Updated with what I could figure out:
Kwam - Submitted Date: 10/28/2007 3:40:00 PM E.S.T.
ncprasad - Submitted 10/28/07 2.10 PST
CookieMonster - still working on essay OUTLINES.
riverripper - Submitted 10/30/07 (visited yesterday had to put names and details in a few spots)
sangoman - Essays 2 frozen, two semi solid , cover letter and optional essay not started
aurobindo - Submitted for R1. All in
collegesenior -Submitted
DrivinWest - Cover letter 75%, 2 x 75% done, 2 x 0% done but I just had an epiphany on the topic... going to pound it out right now.

I am amazed at collegesenior's ability to get these done so quick.

I should have submitted last night but decided to head to bed and get a good night sleep for work. Then I submitted during my lunch break nice and refreshed.

I used "MIT Sloan School of Management" once in my cover letter. For the sake of economy, I used either "Sloan" or "MIT Sloan" in other places.
