So I just logged into the application portal for the first time, and am surprised by how skimpy the app seems to be.
Is there no space for extracurricular activities? Describing work responsibilities (other than the 1-pager resume)? Only 250 words for optional essay?

Am I missing something?

You're missing the fact that MIT is down to earth and doesn't want to be fed bullshit.

Hey guys this is my first post for Sloan. I am from Europe and I was not considering a US MBA due to length and cost, but I have MIT in my heart and the more I researched Sloan the more I started liking the idea and now I think it is my #1 choice as there is good financial aid as well. So, I want to do whatever I can to get in. To this end, I am seriously considering retaking the GMAT before the R2 deadline to raise my 700 GMAT to around 730-750 which I am confident I can do. I think it can make a difference, what do you think?

Regarding interviews, when do these take place? Is it like around 5 weeks from the application deadline? Do you have the interviews with alumni like most MBAs or from staff and faculty only?

Good luck to everyone waiting for the R1 interview results!


If you have the time, do it. But book the slot at the testing center now, as they fill up quickly. Generally you want to be hitting about 720 or so when you apply.

Hi guys,

had a question on the application, if someone could please help.

The essay guidelines mention that the essays should be of within the last 3 years. I have some excellent examples of my earlier jobs that i would like to showcase in one of my essays but the period for that was 2008. My question is that whether the 3 yr rule will apply for someone like me where i have had ~9 yrs work experience and this experience is just from the 4th year?

regards,
madzy

Try to quote an experience within the last 3 years. Following a school's instructions is generally a good idea :) Search and you'll definitely find one.

I called the adcom before I submitted mine and they insisted on this 3-yr time line. I guess in your case, if it's sth amazing that you really want to write about, I'd say go ahead with it (since ur time line is not that far off) but definitely put sth in the optional essay to explain why you chose to write about sth that happened more than 3 yrs ago.

Based on analyzing last year's thread, it looks like invites should come out by close of business today for northeast US residents (Boston, NYC, DC, etc). It looks like other geographies have to wait another few days.


Any specific time?

I was in a similar situation.
I put the excellent example in the cover letter and stuck to the 3 years in the essays.
I spoke with adcom and they did tell me for cover letter i can go beyond 3 years.

Good luck!

Interesting in and of itself that there were 34 pages on this board by this time last year compared to 8 today. Gmatclubbers turn their back on Sloan? ;)
