Hi all,

I'm planning on applying R1 to Sloan.

that being said, when I checked the MIT Website, the Essays listed are for "Fall 2011" entry, which I took to mean last year. Do you think they just didn't bother to change the year or will those Essays potentially change at some point?

Also, Has anyone had success starting an online application? I went to the login page, but despite mentioning a "create account" button, I don't see it.

Good Luck to all!

Wow is Oct 25th really the earliest deadline?

Kind of nice, all my other apps are due early in the month, so spreads it out a bit.

Re: Calling All Fall 2012 MIT Sloan Applicants !!! [#permalink] New post 08 Aug 2011, 20:21
Hi all,

I would like to know whether there is much difference between applying in Round I and applying in Round II?
According to the MIT Sloan Website, they admit half in Round I and half in Round II. However, Round I has fewer candidates. Hence, applying in Round I should be better.
But I want to know if the chance of being admitted is significantly different between two rounds?

Thank you very much.

Theoretically, R1 v R2 should be about the same.

The difference in # of applications is arguably off-set by R1 tending to have a slightly higher percentage of highly qualified candidates.

Most people say that the difference between the two rounds is minimal, and to submit your application when it's ready.

I was able to create an account earlier for the 2012 application. I've been checking from time to time and I was only able to view the "create an account" button today in the online app link.

After browsing through the application form, the essays originally posted by str1der are the same as what I'm seeing right now. As such, can these be the 2012 essay questions already?

Thanks.

Thanks chromium73! Seems like all are the same except essay # 3. Overlooked that one.

If anyone has seen/has an access to the recommendation questions as well, appreciate if you post them in this thread also.
