In for R1. I will be visiting on Oct 16, 2011.

The lack of scholarships is a bit disheartening.. but I'll deal with that if the time comes.

I talked to a current student, and apparently there are no scholarships whatsoever, even for the most brilliant. MIT offers a part-time job as an Assistant Teacher, which pays around 18000$/year, that's all. Also, MIT has a guaranteed loan for eveyone who is admitted.


I'm a Sloan 2012.

Scholarships do exist, but are close to impossible to get.

I visited today as part of the ambassador program. Definitely recommended, you get the admissions presentation, then talk to 1st and 2nd year students informally, sit in a class, then a tour of Sloan buildings.

For the student talks, they were informal and over lunch. I think the ratio of students to prospective students was like 3-6 at my table.

Re-app in for round one

reapp too for round one.
Hi, reapplyN2011, from the website of sloan's admission, it is said that the reapply shall prepare the entire whole package, including the resume, essay and recoomendation letter. Do this mean that we shall also prepare for the CV and others information?

Wish us good luck for the reapplication.....

In for R1!

Saw the essays posted earlier on the thread, but they did not include the cover letter! Guys don't forget about the cover letter .. it is 500 words so an essay in its own right

Also is anyone going to the Palo Alto or San Francisco event tonight?

Is it safe to assume that everyone will be in business attire for the "Sloan On the road" event?

Also, is anyone going to the Toronto event on Oct 12th?

Anyone know if there is any stipulated format (font size, spacing etc) for the Sloan 2012 essays? Wonder if anyone picked up anything through info sessions etc...

Thanks!

For the cover letter, is everyone writing their addresses and the address of Rod Garcia, adhering to "standard business correspondence"? If yes, that makes up a lot of words, out of 500 !

MBA22,

Happy to help you out here. You can choose either. Just make sure that if you choose a personal story, the rest of your essays are professional. This IS BUSINESS school, after all. But, yes, adding a personal story is something we always recommend. It shows the adcom that you're more than just a PROFILE. You're a PERSON. And that's the sort of stuff that will get their attention and get YOU to stand out.

Hope that helps. You should also check out our take on all of MIT's essays: http://www.precisionessay.com/2011/10/2 ... -analysis/

That should help you as you keep on truckin'



Precision Essay and jko -- thanks for the response..

What does everyone think about giving examples from the same event/organization in two different questions? I know it would be considered rather narrow in terms of experience, but I'd like to know if there are anybody thinks otherwise?

Personally, I don't think it would matter if the examples are from the same organization. What about people who have worked at only one organization for the past 3 years- their experiences are going to be from there! What matters is the breadth of experiences.
My 2 cents.

It probably depends on the examples, and how dissimilar they are.

Using two examples of 'dealing with a difficult client' in separate essays is going to be rough, same organization or not.

Re: Sloan 2012 - Calling All Applicants [#permalink] New post 15 Oct 2011, 18:27
Hi All,
MIT sloan has an optional essay: "You may use this section to address whatever else you want the Admissions Committee to know."

Is it Ok to talk about my significant leadership experiences ( i was leading a team of 100 members) in the last 1 year and the kind of steps that I took to foster collaboration in the team? The experiences are general in nature and there are many such experiences I want to talk about (I can do it in 250 words).

I couldn't do the above in the other 3 essays (excluding the cover letter) as the 3 essays are asking for specific anecdotes in which I have to highlight what i thought, felt, said and did. That's why I am thinking the optional essay might be a good place to dedicate my experiences as a leader of the team.

Is this the right question to highlight my leadership experiences?
