Congrats to all who got admits!

Below message is for future International applicants only.

Reason: I am an international applicant and applied to LGO this yr (2010). Even though I have a descent background I didn’t even get an interview call. I might be wrong about my profile but I know a few more internationals who didn’t get interview call even though they had a good profile. So I researched more abt the program and this is my advice to future applicants.

Advice:
LGO program prefers international applicants. Based upon page http://lgo.mit.edu/engineering-mba.html LGO gave admits to only 4% internationals last yr. 4% is a very small and it equates to around 3 admits (in class of 47). My guess is out of those 3 applicants, each applicant will be from different country. Due to diversity factor LGO wouldn’t give all 3 admits to students from a same country. Moreover if there is any female international applicant then she will get some advantage too. So in short International male applicants have almost 0 chance of getting an admit. Especially applicants from countries from which many students apply to LGO.

I also emailed Vicki Mach and asked her to give data of applications received and admits given by country. She forwarded that email to a senior LGO director and they told me that they cannot give such data. I am surprised….because I don’t think it will be any harm to the LGO program. I wanted that data so that future international applicants can be aware of their admission chances.

Anyways, so international applicants, pls reevaluate your decision to apply at MIT. I think that international shouldn’t rely on MIT and should apply to other schools too.

thanks

I was at Ambassador's Day this year and there were about 5 or 6 international applicants. Two of them were from Mexico. What exactly is your background or what company did you work for? I think that if you worked for a company that is overrepresented in the program this could have killed your application.

I see that you posted this back in March. Where are you now? did you get into any other program? Best of luck to you and sorry to hear that you were dinged from LGO. Even if there are only a few internationals every year, I will fight for one of those spots. Its not impossible, but very hard. And as long as it is not impossible, there is a bit of hope.

By the way, I am an Industrial Engineer from Arizona State as well. I read your first posting somewhere else. Although I am an undergrad and have no graduate studies whatsoever. (Maybe this is another reason for the ding, since I read that you have graduate studies, although there was a PHD from Singapour this year but I am unsure if he was a permanent resident or not). Again, sorry to hear about your ding, but I also read that you were accepted into the MMM program.
