Hey Kwam,

Thanks for the update... Was wondering if you were interested in and managed to find out about how well MIT grads normally fare in traditional fin ser jobs i.e.: IB, research or even PE and VC?


They seem to do pretty weel, from the big banks only JP Morgan does not go there, but you can go after it, the people I talked to at the Finance Club said that even though it's a little bit harder this year, still almost everybody could get places.

Regarding PE, VC and HF, well it's tricky. If you want VC for High Tech, then Sloan is pretty well regarded, but these industries are really hard to break through, and also the recruiting process is a little bit different and it happens later, so everybody told me is that you see all your friends getting offers from DB, UBS, Citi, etc, and you have nothing from these places... Nevertheless, I met a couple of Sloanies who are heading to VC, but to do the "Dirty job", as for these industries or you have previous work ex or you will start from bottom. From what I could "research" it seems that MIT can get you anywhere, but you will need to work your way through.

Kwam isnt it nice to be recruited by the schools, students, and other admits. Its a nice change from the sucking up we all did this fall trying to tell all these schools how much we love them.

How was the general feel of MIT during admit weekend, everyone really excited and positive about their experiences there? Any good insight beyond the numbers? Any valuable info for people who will read this next year, the good the bad the ugly...hopefully the financial aid was better than Kelloggs (which was the only negative thing from DAK). I think I got a far better sense of what Kellogg was about during the admit weekend than I learned about schools during visits and admit event, so anything you think would be a benefit for future applicants or admits who didnt make the weekend would be great to capture.

A quote from an email I met at AdMIT weekend "do you have the email info of [Steel]? He showed interest in being on this list. Looks like he could use some convincing to stay away from Kellogg!"

A neat thing I noticed at both Kellogg and MIT though - that the other admits are probably the most vehement recruiters for the school. People are fired up for b-school! Just makes me more and more excited!

I think its natural for the students and alums to be the big boosters of their school. It is sort of a self serving thing when you think about it. They want to keep yield up and to take away talent from other schools, so for an MIT student or other admit to try to sway you into going there makes sense. Plus everyone wants to think their school is the best...its like being on a sports team, everyone wants to think theirs is the best.

B-schools are like college football programs, imagine the M7 as D-1 schools who compete for the best and the brightest. And just like BCS standings, b-school rankings change year to year and schools are always competing for those top recruits to stay at the top. Every school gets their 5 star studs but the real competition is to keep as many good recruits as possible so your strengthen your team while keeping them from signing with the opposing teams.

haha, great analogy there river with the football teams. It's spot on. Just look at rhyme, he's probably the biggest fan and supporter of GSB there is out there, and consequently, GSB has the most applicants here on GMATClub this year (the #1 in BW also helped :P).

Anyway, kwam, hope you get into Stanford so we can get a west coast GMATClub started :wink:

Everytime this thread bumps up, I get a feeling that someone got an invitation to interview and am helplessly engulfed in jealousy :)

Looks like MIT is sending invites by region...
Can someone confirm that this true?

I remember seeing that invites are handed out by region based on the travel schedule of adcom on a chat somewhere.

Going by R1 - Sloan issued interview invites based on Hub Interview locations (where you were assigned to interview), which may or may not be the location of the candidate.

For example, R1 I got an early interview in Cambridge (since I chose Cambridge as my #1 interview location choice) rather than getting the interview invite a few weeks later like those did who chose to interview in Washington, DC.

How many MIT R2 applicants do we have on here? Anybody know the pattern of MIT interview invites. Is MIT more like Wharton where a lot of invites go out late or Harvard where most invites go out early?

I am wondering the same. Looks like bw forum reported some invites for NYC, and I am starting to lose hope...

There's a bit on this topic in this thread around the time R1 invites went out in late November. In R1, most invites went out early. It seems that most everyone who interviewed early was ultimately offered admission. At AdMIT Weekend we were told that a smaller percentage was interviewed this year, so an interview means you're most of the way to admission. Of course, that was for R1. I would speculate that the same will be true for R2, but don't hold me to it.
